Warning!!! Rage Lobsters Cause Sore Ribs

Recommended Posts

Bruised ribs from fighting heavy fish seem to make lasting, yet fond memories! My friend Alex and I ended up with exactly that and the meal ticket was Rage Lobsters and/or Smokin Roosters flipped in deep brush. Falcon Lake Craw color on the Lobsters was a HOTT bite rigged on a 3/4 oz SK Tour Grade or SOB tungsten weight. Big rods and 50lb braid were necessary to get their attention fast and keep them moving up and out of the thick stuff. I'll get other pic's up soon... Notice I was wearing my PFD to pad my ribs on one of them and would've worn it more but my line would sometimes tangle in the straps during the hook set. We were in FLIPPIN HEAVEN that day and had to share a few choice beverages when it was all over... you know, for the battered ribs and all!

WOW! nice looking hawgs there! The Rage lobsters work really well for me after the ice goes out here. Them largies are hungry and they seem to like the larger profile of the lobsters. B) I'm heading out today, might pull out some junebug colored lobsters?

I have to echo the love for the lobster. My favorite mop jig trailer.

I like'em as jig trailers as well, infact all of the ones that get the hook end bored out from catching flipped fish, I make my trailers from them ;)

I love having sore ribs when it's setting the hook too much that causes it. Those are some awesome fish!

Good grief those are awesome fish. Having sore ribs sucks unless you got them from catching giant fish. Nice job.
