I wanted to get into using jigging raps this winter and summer, but I heard a lot of stories about them getting snagged in the summer. I didn't want to spend $7.00+ for them, so I checked eeebbaayy. Found these for under $9.00 for 4 raps. Quality seems good. If the ice ever goes out, I'll be able to give a better review- but they look good!

They look good! I would say that's a good deal. As far as getting snagged I'm a huge jig rapper in the summer and fall and I rarely snag up. The guys that are snagging up must be fishing rocks. I usally fish sandy bottoms and sand weed edges and I have found this is where i get the most productivity out of the lure.

I am getting to become a jigging rap fan myself!

I had very good success using the small version this winter for crappies and big bluegills! Plan to try them a lot more this summer for walleyes also.

I will probably go broke though using them in the snaggy rocks on Vermilion!

Try and keep them as vertical as possible.  I'm not extremely experienced in using them, but have had some success.

Maybe I'll snag and retrieve one of the many crankbaits that I've lost on the rocks in Wakemup Bay!  Or, my luck, I'll have both sitting on the bottom.  I did order 4 smaller ones also-2.36" long, weight 10.5g.  For China stuff, there not bad!  I paid 6.64 for 4ea of the smaller ones.  The packaging looks very similar to Rapala's pkg.

There is a video around that is specific to Vermilion, fall fishing Jigging Raps. Like anything, when rock fishing, keep it up, and keep it moving.

The smaller sizes are really lights out on suspended deep basin fall crappies, vertical, right over the side of the boat, fish it back near your ducer,, and you'll see it on your electronics.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
