Brandon Palaniuk has let a certain secret out of the bag – using a Rapala Jigging Rap to catch summertime smallmouth and largemouth bass. While this lure is known for cold water success and highly credible ice fishing success, the lure’s action is perfectly suited for bass that are in a negative or neutral feeding mood. By popping the lure up (much like a blade bait), an angler can create a reaction strike in the hottest days of the year.
While most anglers use Jigging Raps for winter or spring walleye fishing, Rapala now gives you many more colors to choose from to accurately mimic those species in which your bass are chasing. If you want to see how to fish the Jigging Rap from Brandon Palaniuk, click play on the video below:
