Strike King Tour Grade Rage Blade Swim Jig
Time To Shake things up!
These Rage Blades have really impressed me this year!
With a whole new design to the mouse trap style lure, Strike King really nailed it with this one. Detaching the weight from the hook and molding it into the blade,dropping it below the whole rig has changed my style of bladed swim jig presentation.
I use this lure when fishing in heavy pressure areas. With the same approach every time. I start at the top and work my way down.
On splash down I like to run it just under the surface for some incredible top water "buzzbait" style fishing.
Nicknamed My "Boulder Rover" for a reason I'm usually driving this thing into the rocks trying to stir up some aggressive fish...with MUCH success!
this thing is not a lawn mower though... so keep it out of the grass! But run it on the outside of some weed beds for some good predatory strikes.
Deep Water, Yo-Yo it !
This Rage Blade has Been one of my Go to lures this year, Tipped with a 3 1/2 inch Zoom Swimmin' Fluke Jr. and I'm like BOOM Get over here Fish!!

Still hangs up...a lot!
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I have lost two Rage Blades the day after I bought them on hang ups. At $6.99 on sale that adds up quickly.
Love the idea and all the videos say you can now 'run 'em into stumps and logs' and the lead weight at the bottom will keep them from hanging up. Well, that's not my experience.
In open water or grassy water I do like the action and reaction I get from the fish. It will catch fish! I use them with a Zoom Super Fluke trailer.

Bought the blue/black 3/8th ounce for summer bass fishing, the first time out, I caught 6 lg. mouth including a 22.5 " 7 lb. fish, second time out, almost the same result, 5 fish in an hour or so, with a 20.25" 5 lb. fish. Something about the large head clanking as it moves through the water must drive them nuts.

I fish almost always, 2 and 4 lb. test lines ultra-lite!
I'd love to see a"Strike King" Rage Blade in a much smaller weight and size!!
Otherwise it looks mighty fine, great innovative blade but in a small size (for me) I'd like some fur or feathers!!
Maybe a Mickey Finn, or a Fire-Tiger, or a "B/N Dace"!!
