Jigging raps

Recommended Posts

CigarGuy

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.

Cigar guy and I fish Vermilion, home of the most lure grabbing rocks in the state....

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.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
