Rapala Jigging Rap
Rapala Jigging Raps swim in tantalizing circles right in the middle of suspended game fish. These lures are very popular for ice fishing. Jigging Raps can also be used for all game fish species, and vertical jigging can bring fantastic results in the dog days of summer. Fish hold at certain depths and Rapala Jigging Raps allow you to reach them consistently, taunting them into a strike.

Excellent ice fishing tool - but I am alarmed by the reported quality control issues
by IanLJones -
This is a superb lure for ice fishing. On the lift it scoots out sideways 1-2' and then turns and swims back under your rod tip. With a jiggled rod top it rolls and flashes and twitches. Either way it attracts some smashing strikes. My favourite colours are gold and silver. Most of the jigging raps I use are older editions and I have never experienced any breakage but I admit inspection of recently purchased items is cause for concern. Possibly this could be fixed by pre-application of some cyanoacrylate glue to the body-tail joint.

These are just awesome for aggressive fish and also for triggering neutral fish. They just can not let this lure pass them by. Lots of excellent colours and new ones as well that hopefully Fish USA will carry soon.
Great Multi-use bait
by Walleye455 -
Great all around bait, can get a little pricey if you fish snag prone areas. Watch for sales and buy them all!
by Showman -
Caught a 15 inch walleye and same size northern on #7 purpledesent and the wing was gone. This happens often with this color. Not sure about other colors because I have not fished them that much.

Rapala Jigging Rap and Flat Jig
by Lost Viking -
Though the cons may shy you away,,,, I still recommend the bait if you go through the following remedies. Buy a good two part epoxy and apply to the bottom side of tai lalong it's entire length paying attention to bridge the gap on the tail on body,,,,, also epoxy the tail hook in the bottom slot of tail fin . Middle bottom treble,,, add an extra split ring. Tail hook angle -- after epoxying -- grap your needle nose plier and bend slightly more concave to more resemble the flat jig angle. Seems like a lot of work,,,, and it should be totally unnecessary based on the price of these baits,,,,, but,,, it has solved the issues I have. My last trip out I didn't lose any tail fins and caught lots of fish.
It's a classic go-to
by Danimal85 -
Rapala's jigging rap is a classic and always in my arsenal on the ice for walleye and panfish. You can fish it aggressive or slow with a variety of colors and sizes to dial in a program for any predatory fish in the midwest.
Needs improved durability

Hot lure for walleye and perch but back fins fall off to easily
Great fall and ice fishing bait.
by elkeyeholic -
Use mostly in the fall and ice fishing. Have worked for me drifting or vertical jigging and even sometimes casting and jigging back to boat. Front hook catches a lot of stuff when casting and jigging back, only time the front hooks have broke for me is when casting they catch snags easier when jigging back to boat.
fish think it's real

Lift, fall, hold......jiggle, jiggle, jiggle. That's what makes it work for me.
Great ice fishing lure
by Bigfisherman -
only thing i suggest is to change the bottom hook to a larger size
by blah blah -
well made and easy to use.crushin the perch with it and pulled out a few good bass through the ice with it .recommended to keep one with your ice gear
You can't go wrong
by Just below the dam -
The walleyes and saugers love them! But just be careful not to use them where there are a lot of snags. Chrome blue is my favorite.
good walleye jig
by affraid of the ice -
walleye and white bass seemed to like the #3 in orange/red and firetiger thru the ice. I will walk the shore line with these jigs a 12ft pole and pencil bobber and jigg for crappie in some timber in early march
Great for ice fishing
by Milkman1946 -
I suspend this lure about 18 inches off the bottom with a minow head on the center hook for walleyes while ice fishing. A little up and down motion helps.
by PolarisPete -
I have caught a lot of panfish and a few walleyes this Winter using this jigging Rapala.Just be careful how you store this lure as the plastic tail breaks off easily.
Fish USA has the hard to find colors.
by Walleye wizard -
When the weather turns cold and all the other boats are stored away, I use the Rapapa jigging rap for deep water walleye. The new glow tiger colors have doubled my catch rate.
Very happy with this product.

Best striper lure ever
by Jim -
This is the most incredible lure I have ever used for white and striped bass fishing. I fish Norfork Lake In Arkansas and use the blue and chrome for a week straight and don't change it, unless the paint is removed from all the hits. Very simple to use, just drop it to the bottom real up 6 to 12 inches from the bottom and jig hard about every 15 seconds and hold on tight. NOTE: use only in open flats, not good for Crappie piles but will catch any fish on the bottom of the lake..
CAUGHT OVER 500 WALLEYE THIS SEASON
THESE HOOKS ARE THE BEST FOR WINTER WALLEYE I HAVE EVER USED. THE ONLY CHANGES I HAVE MADE WAS TOO UP SIZE THE TREBLE HOOK ON THE NINES TOO SIZE 4S AND SIZE 6 ON THE 7S OH I CAUGHT OVER 500 WALLEYES THIS SEASON ON THESE HOOKS
Great Ice Lure!

Great walleye ice lure tipped with only a fresh minnow head
by weave -
I bought a handful of these in the smallest size and have so far gotten perch and panfish on them. .
U need this in your ice fishing arsenal!
by Ta2dPatriot -
couldn't ask for a better ice fishing jig!
why did I wait so long before buy it?
by piketje21 -
1/ Mainly used in jigging and vertical method. 2/ Able to decide big variety of fish, so always surprise. 3/ May be a good thing to have small size with higher weight.
by Bigbucks0707 -
I have to say i love these lures. I mainly use them walleye fishin through the ice and have caught more fish on them than any other lure. It works very well for other fish as well. Some times you have to put on a larger treble hook for the bottom so you dont lose to many fish but other then that they are great!!!
