The Rapala® Twitchin' Rap™ Balsa Wood Lures take us back to our roots with balsa wood construction for the world-famous delicate Rapala wobble. Weighted for long casting with a running depth of 6 inches to 2 feet deep, it can be fished virtually anywhere. Near neutral buoyancy in saltwater; fish strike at or right after the pause. Slow-sinking in freshwater for a struggling wounded-minnow action. Hot pro-selected colors and strike triggering patterns are undeniably alluring to a wide range of fish species. Includes two #3 size hooks.
Worth the money
Tried this out two weekends in a row now in the Allegany River fishing for smallmouth's. Things were pretty slow and my normal go to lures were not producing so I decided to give the twitchin rap a shot. This lure actually produced when nothing else was working. Caught 3 smallies, 3 northern pike and foul hooked 1 carp in the front pectoral fin, that was as fun as it gets. Thought i had a monster northern at first until the fight became obvious after many many runs. Give this a shot it worked for me, especially when the others are not producing. I used the hot olive color. Only down fall is that the paint is already beginning to chip off after the 3rd toothy Northern but it's not 2 bad. I give this 4 stars for that reason only.

Have not had a chance to test it in the water yet, but it's well built like a Rapala's and I have no doubt it will perform perfectly.

killer bass lure
I really like how these lures ride in the water. They suspend nicely in the top 10 inches or so of water and dart unpredictably when you twitch your rod tip. I've had great success with these lures on LMB but I suspect other species will like them too.

I would use more natural colors in clear water (blues,silvers,golds and whites) and for murky water I would use the hot olive or firetiger a shot. The extra color and flash is easier for the fish to see in dirty waters
Generally speaking natural colors such as 18, 54, 98, and 99 work best for clearer waters. Attractor colors such as 10 and 12 work well when fishing murky waters. As well "matching the hatch" with your bait colors also works. Study the forage of the fish that you are targeting and match this with color and bait presentations.
