Rigging Rage Craw

Recommended Posts

Trying out the Craws for the first time.  Trying to determine if I should Texas right them with a Spot Remover or regular (pegged or unpegged). Also, if not a Spot Remover, what size and type of hook would you recommend?

The Rage Tail website has all the information you will need for any of the Rage Tail line up baits.  The forum there, "Rage Talk," has a slew of information about fishing each of the rage baits with some interesting innovative rigging ideas from a great group of helpful people.  In short you can Texas rig them, fish em on a stand up jig head(spot remover), use em as a jig trailer, weightless, top water (buzzbait), or on a swim bait/keel weighted hook.  I prefer a 4/0 Gamma Superline EWG hook.

I use the Craw as a jig trailer. For straight t-rigging I use the Lobster.

5/0 round bend offset gammie.

Also, try the Lobster on a Shak-e2 jig head.

Any 3/0 EWG hook and a 1/8 oz. unpegged worm weight. Rig it tex-posed up through the slotted side and out the non-slotted side. Drag it, don't hop it. You'll be amazed!

Here is some of the information on Rigging the Rage Craw from the RT News Site....

[ch9702]Fishing the Rage Craw, the slightest movement of the rod tip causes the claws to flap back and forth and create terrific action and vibration in the water. This versatile design lends itself to a variety of popular rigging techniques that have proven effective at the highest level on the Pro Fishing Tour.

[ch9702]The Rage Craw can be rigged with a variety of hook sizes and styles depending on the type of presentation you are looking for. The most popular is Texas rigged using a bullet weight from 1/8 oz to 1 oz depending on the amount of wind and water depth when fishing. ¼ oz is standard. For casting with a drag and stop, or lift and fall retrieve, an un-pegged weight is very popular. For flipping or pitching in brush or trees, a pegged weight is advised to keep the bait and weight together which helps you to better navigate the structure as well as provide a more vertical presentation.

[ch9702]Using the Rage Craw and Jig Trailer is very popular when a slightly larger or longer profile is desired over the standard chunk size trailer. This can be used on the standard skirted football, flipping or casting jigs, or on a stand up jig head as well.

[ch9702]Carolina rigged is also very effective using as light of a weight as necessary for the wind and depth conditions. This technique allows the bait to free swim at any and all depths which is very attractive to the fish.

[ch9702]Another up and coming rig is using a keel weighted hook. This allows the bait to fall with a different profile and action and is extremely effective for finicky fish in shallow water and over grass or moss beds. Light or low wind conditions are best for this style of presentation.

[ch9702]Completely weightless using an EWG hook in the sizes mentioned below, gives an excellent finesse top water presentation that allows a gentle fluttering, flapping top action and lets the bait slowly fall in the grass pockets when needed.

[ch9702]Any of the popular hook designs are effective with the Craw which includes Standard offset worm hook and EWG hook. Preferred sizes are 3/0 to 4/0 in each.

Hope that helps
