How to rig up these Rage Toads?

Recommended Posts

I have a pack of Rage Toads getting dusty and want to throw them across some lilly pads this season. Any suggestions for a hook and rigging method? The guy at the tackle store suggested something like Ribbit double hooks but since he didn't carry them anymore I was slightly skeptical.

 

I'm thinking they are heavy enough to cast and won't need added weight, right? I don't want them sinking down into the pads.

I always rig them with a Moaner Swimbait hook and it works for me. I think the most important thing is making sure you have them rigged perfectly straight.

I got some of these Rage Toads from @jbmaine and he had it rigged with a unweighted swimbait hook. Not sure what size but I'd guess somewhere between 5/0 to 7/0. It has a screw lock to hold the plastic and a ring that couples to the hook eye. Pop the hook point through the body Texas rig style, into the underbelly and out the top.

They rig nicely on the Rabbit double hook. It looks a little funny because the hook gap is a tad big for the bait, but it works just fine. They do sink though. You won’t be fishing this road slow if you intend to keep it on top.
