Crazy Rigs for Rage tails

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever tried to do things like carolina rig the toad or the shad, or just do comething crazy like that with rage baits for a unique, but different presentation to the bass. Has anyone ever tried a rage toad as a swimming jig trailer or chatterbait trailer? I've been looking for some out of the ordinary ways to fish rage tail baits in the potomac river's many grass beds on pressured days

Define "crazy"

Define "regular or norrmal"

The variations/permutations available for soft plastic baits are as large or as small as your imagination and your knowledge of rigging methods.

I have used the Smoking Rooster as a sort of Fluke/Jerkbait.  Just jerking it through the weeds and letting it sit for a few seconds.

What I mean is are you doing anything really creative or out of the ordinary with your rage baits.........

I tied a rage tail to my shoe lace and hung my foot out of the back of my Jon Boat while heading back into dock. Caught a 4 pounder

That sounds killer. I'm going to have to give it a shot, I have never thought of doing this.

Not crazy, but keel weighted space monkey I use as a buzz frog in the morning and without putting that rod down it also stands on bottom like a craw would perfectly. I guess it is just really versatile.

edit:  I use instead of a t-rigged craw which i seem to get too much line twist with- keel weight eliminates that.

Not a rage tail, but I have been known to use Horny Toad C-rigged and as swim jig trailers. Not much success though.

There are no rules for rigging any baits, only suggestions. If you think it might work, why not just try it out and see what happens?

I haven't tried it, but I have a feeling that a Rage Tail Shad might spin like crazy on a Carolina rig.  Give it a shot.

I wonder how a lobster or craw would do rigged backwards.

I could see it doing well with a Florida rig
