Description

Rapala Original Jointed Minnows get the undivided attention of otherwise disinterested gamefish with a slight exaggeration of the unique Rapala baitfish-in-distress swimming action. This articulated, or broken-back bait, can be fished top-to-bottom. Swimming action at the slowest of speeds makes this bait the perfect choice after a cold front when fish are traditionally finicky and in a negative feeding mood.

Original Jointed Minnows are made with balsa wood construction and feature VMC black nickel hooks. Each is hand-tuned and tank-tested for perfect swimming action right out of the box.

Features of Rapala Original Jointed Minnows include:

  • Classic minnow profile
  • Broken back design
  • Balsa body construction
  • Premium VMC black nickel hooks
  • Hand tuned and tank tested

Each package contains one lure.

 On the hunt for Pike (from prior model)

 Nearly perfect for Predators
Pros: Easily tuned, An all time favorite, "matches the hatch", Fishes well over weeds, Good For Variety Of Fish
Cons: Needs split ring on nose, Fish keep taking them
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Trolling
Comments: Trolled shallow, (-12ft) in clear water over weeds in early spring, these are deadly for Macks, Rainbow, and Smallies, because they float up out of weeds when stopped, but still have a teasing action. I just wish they came with a snap ring in the nose,(widens the wobble) and a version with no front hook would be nice, as I release most of my fish anyway, and don't like them injured, if possible.
