Rage Tail Lobsters

Recommended Posts

Just had an order of a couple packages of these that came in yesterday from TW. I couldn't believe the profile of these baits...they are monster! They look really great with the my all terrain 1/2oz grassmaster jigs too. How many people just fish these things by themselves? If so, how do you fish them? What size hook do you use? Thanks.

Texas rigged with a slipshot 6-8 inches above the hook (creates great falling action) with a 4/0 ewg.

Flippin/Pitchin - 8 ft or less in low wind conditions - 1/2 to 3/4oz pegged or weight stop - I use a 5/0 minimum hook size either screw lock Moaner Stick'r hook or any flippin hook of your choice. Windy or deeper, 3/4 to 1oz.

T tig or C rig - 5/0 screw lock style Moaner Stroker or off set round bend like Strike King or Owner. Weight depends on depth and wind conditions but 1/4 is my minimum and up to 3/4 in water to 30 ft.

Rage Rig - 1/4 Moaner Weighted Stroker

Top water - 5/0 screw lock Moaner Stroker or heavy wire EWG like Gammy.

Jig trailer - 1/4 to 3/8oz shallow swim jig or 3/8 to 1/2 on shallow casting but 1/2 minimum when shallow flippin/Pitchin up to 1oz for deeper and windy conditions. Pinch off 1 section or tip for longer a profile or pinch two sections off for a compact set up.

Punch - 5/0 Moaner Stick'r hook with 1oz minimum tungsten weight.

Thanks for the suggestions ;). I think my owner 4/0 EWGs will get the job done. Great looking craws, they've very unique...love the huge profile of them.

I use them alone very often, normally T/rigged on a 5/0 hook or 1/4oz Rage-rig.

Excuse my ignorance. How do you Rage Rig?

Rage Rig is utilizing a weighted/swimbait hook on high action soft plastics other than swimbaits. This presentation provides a basic horizontal fall yet quicker than weightless presentations. Fishing them with a slow lift and fall like you would fish a stantard T rig set up is extremely effective and especially in relatively shallow conditions 8 ft or less. Here's a photo of a Craw on a "Rage Rig". This particular hook is a Moaner Weighted Stroker, hope that helps!

Here's my rage tail tip...

Just put the thing in the water, the fish will eat it. :)

I actually find the Rage Rig to be most effective now when the water is cooling. Cloder the water, the lighter the weight.
