Equipped with VMC® Perma Steel® hooks and saltwater hardware for ultimate toughness.
Great on the flats
THE "go-to" topwater lure for sunrise, summer fishing for sea trout and redfish. Most recent outing on the 4th of July yielded 2 slot trout and 2 over slot redfish within 45 minutes of sunrise. Have used both sizes in several colors. I fish form a kayak, usually in northern Mosquito Lagoon.

i never thought i would catch a 30" red on topwater till yesterday... i catch a lot of snook and trout. some snook actually flew out the water hitting this top water. the only complain from me about this product is the color peel off. but other than that it works

Red Fish Buster
This top water hard bait is a Red Fish killer. When used with the right walk-the-dog presentation they cant resist. Works best in claim water.

I would recommend the color that most represents the forage (bait color). I would also recommend getting another type of walking bait in addition to this one. While the Skitter Walks have worked well for me, you have to be a little better at knowing how to walk. Getting the Heddon Spook (number of them to choose from) would be best to learn how to walk the dog. Also, the new Strike King KVD model is pretty decent. It has a sputtering (like a popper) as it walks (and it walks better than the Skitter Walk). I would still recommend getting a Skitter Walk but the other two are definitely my first two choices off the top of my head.
I use these quite often and they are one of my preferred baits. The size of the lure depends on the type and size of fish you wish to catch. I use the 4 3/8" and have caught Speck trout that were only 12" long. The size of the bait really does not seem to matter as much as it will with other types of lures. As for color, I really like the redfish, speckeled trout, and the holographic blue. I would recommend avoiding the really bright colors like hot pink. I spent about 2 hours last week using a hot pink without much luck. I switched to a holographic silver and limited out. The total for the morning was 10 speckeled trout (5 legal size) and 1 redfish.
rapala not. thats what i have been using and it never failed me yet. i know theres probably a better knot out there but I'm so used tying the rapala. normally after cast and cast and cast i check all my knots and retie if i ever doubt
Supposed to use rapala knot, but I am using a palomar knot with suffix braid. It's so soft that it doesn't seem to impact the action of the lure. The knot is a direct tie to the lure nose loop, so rapala knot is likely the best.
No, unlike most Rapala's this one is plastic. And if you use these in saltwater, you will be glad. They are extremely tough. I have a 4 3/8" redfish that I have been using since last year (and have caught a lot of redfish and trout, and a couple of spanish mackerel) and aside from the scratches on the finish, it is fine.
Balsa wood but don't under estimate its pottential.I've caught many bass on it and even big stripers."Twitch"says it all the more you twitch it the more deadly this rap is on strikes.Becareful though because it has a slow sink and i've lost a few on rocks.
