Made from high-grade plastics for superior action and excellent durability, the Strike King® Rage Tail® line of soft plastics features designs engineered to provoke violent strikes from the biggest lunkers in the lake! Features a fat body and a bulbous, wobbling tail. Rig weightless on a 4/0 or 6/0 wide gap hook, with the tail up.
When I purchased the Strike King Rage Tail Shad it was still cold. When the fish moved to shallow water and stated hitting topwater lures the Rage Tail Shad worked wonders. The tail action on this lure causes the fish to go crazy.

this soft plastic if very lifelike and can be fished in a few different ways so it is pretty versatile. I like to fish it either on top of the water the way that most people use it and i also use it is i let it sink like a foot then begin reeling and let the tail smack on top of the water fro a bit then let it sink...so it sounds like a shad trying to run from something. Rage tail made a great lure so its a must buy.

First 2 casts and had 2 strikes using the rage tail shad. My wife also got a nice bass the same day using the same lure. Now each of us always have a rage tail shad rigged on 2 of our 8 rods everytime we are fishing

Well first off, you have to take the tail and peel it away from the body cause it is connected by a tag. People apparently can't figure that out when there bait starts to spin. The bait has a great sound to it. I've had more hits with this than any buzz bait and the hook set is awesome. You can't go wrong with this bait.

Not at all. When the fish blows up on this bait, and they will, just pause your retrieve for a moment and then lean in to a nice solid hook set. If you are using a sharp hook, of the right size (Moaner 4/0 Keel weighted Stroker hook), a rod with the correct action (medium heavy) and some braided line then you will be fine and dandy.
rig them on a keel weighted hooks such as the MOANER Stroker hook with the 1/8 oz keel weight. I use the 4/0 size. This will prevent the bait from rolling as you reel them in. Using a bait casting reel as opposed to a spinning reel is helpful as well.
BE SURE TO USE A 5/0 OR 6/0 HOOK AND BE SURE TO HOOK THEM RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE WHERE THE LINE IS WITH TAIL PROTRUDINGG UP. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE A SWMINAR WHERE A FACTORY REP SHOWED HOW TO HOOK THEM UP. ON THE RAGE WEB SITE IT SHOWS HOW TO HOOK THEM.
The proper way to rig a Strike King Rage Shad is tail up with a wide gap worm hook. I use size 4/0. Rig it Texas style and weightless with one flat wide side down and the other up. Think of it as reeling a pancake across the surface. They are made to be a surface lure and will not twist if rigged right. Once you see and hear the action you may never use a buzzbait again!
