    I don't think anyone in the history of buying jiggin raps will ever come across the deal huffranger did a couple years ago. 1.99 a piece filled the box up fairly easily.

    That front hook is a bastard for ice fishing. And the bottom treble hook is too small

    I wonder what the reasoning is behind the clear fin instead of a colored fin? Colored fin would add size to the profile but is maybe more unnatural?

    Yes, I do the same. I found that i lost 50% or so with the front hook and i have lost 10% without the front hook. Cant explain why, but had someone tell me they cut them off as well. Gave it a try and now I have 0 with front hooks. I also fish them with PP and a 10ft mono leader.

    I call em snaggin raps....the hard fast dropping into the bottom action makes Walters zoom over n try to pin them down, and on the next rip, you snag em in the pecs, making a 14" fish feel like it's 24". Do not use where carp, buffalo, Cisco, or paddlefish are abundant unless you're really bored and using 30+lb test. Paddlefish owe me about 50 bucks this year.

    Notta.. as far as fun-catching fish goes tho, pitching jigs, jiggin-raps, pitchin raps takes the top 3 in that order in my book.

    A guy on YouTube shows switching out the treble hooks for a larger size. Another video shows the guy taking his needle nose pliers and bending each of the hooks a little further out.

    I'd rather do the second choice and just bend the hooks outward more. Switching out treble hooks also means bending the opening up to make the switch and lessens the stiffness of the neck that holds the treble.

    Does everyone fish jigging raps the same way in the winter as the summer? In the winter I don’t typically let it drop to the bottom every time. Am I fishing it wrong in the winter? Now I’m starting to wonder if I would have triggered more strikes in the winter.

    I cast them more in the summer than I do in the winter.

    While we are on this subject...what has everyone been using for line when snap jigging? I've have used Fireline with a 2' floro leader to add a little stretch/give. Watching Al Linder one time I think he said he uses mono as his primary line and adds a swivel with a short leader tied directly to the jigging rap (no snap). Said he ran a swivel to prevent line twist.

    He swaers by mono. I think it allows you to never over work the bait and the stretch keeps the hooks “pinned” better. That said, I can’t stand mono so I use 2-3 feet of flouro with a spro barrel swivel. If a guy is fishing deep(30+feet) I think no stretch is better. Fishing 10-20 feet might result in fewer hooked/landed fish.

    The more hooks you have the better your chance of snagging fish---And snagging fish is my favorite as every fish feels like a wall hanger.

    I sure wish this was true cuz I’d much prefer to use Shivers. Unfortunately we’ve never found this to be true. That said, having confidence in this style of bait is 50 percent or more of the battle.

    They all have their place. Even snap raps...right in the garbage.

    Not for me so far. The smaller ones have been a skunk fest compared to jig rap. I got some 1 oz that I am going to try.

    Depends on technique. Wife puts a clinic with a puppet and I can't catch anything on those. Shiver feel the best but those rapals catch.
