Rage Tail Challenge

Recommended Posts

I know everyone has their favorite brands of soft plastics and some are cheaper than

Rage Tail Baits. So what's the big deal? Try them for yourself and see. Let's start with

just one bag of Rage Tail Craws in any color you like. Rig them as a jig trailer or "naked"

on a 1/4 ounce 4/0 weighted hook or simply T-rigged.

I look forward to the response, especially from those that have never tried the Craw!

My local tackle shop just got them. I will pick up a couple of bags although I mostly make my own plastics. I have read enough positive reviews on BR to make me interested and find it hard to resist a challenge. I plan to fish Saturday at the latest.

I have tried several styles with absolutely no results. On the craw I have actually gotten a few short hits. But the paca craws are less expensive and I have had more luck with them. I just haven't had the results that a lot of you get with the Rage line.

A bigger challenge for me, would be trying to get me to take my Rage Tails OFF my hook!

Start pitching it to your swimbaits

Haha, that's funny. Actually that's sorta what I'm doing. It's bitterly cold outside, and I'm back home early, and practising pitching with a spinning rod inside my apartment lol.

If the water near me wasnt about to ice over maybe I could throw a t-rigged rage craw and zoom speedcraw and tell you the results but it looks like I'll have to get back to you in the Spring!

I looks like it might be a little bit for me. Just got a lot colder than I prefer here.

Rage craws are one of the best baits I've ever fished for flipping weeds. They get through the weeds well and then those claws start flapping and it just drives them crazy it seems like.

x2 that! Atleast 2-3 rods have Rage Craw t-rigged or on a jig.

I am a Strike King homer....but I have pretty much ignored the Rage line. Next year will be there turn. I am going to go Rage craws insted of Paca's, and Rage Toads insted of Zoom Horny toads. We'll see what happens.

I've given rage craws numerous chances t-rigged and as a jig trailer, and have never had much success. My partner i bass fish with SWEARS by them, yet has never outfished me with them, i'm assuming this is the year he finally gives in...

Big-O, are you bouncing this rig off the bottom or how are you fishing it?

Roadwarrior, lets wait for the grass to start to grow on the Potomac to start any rage Tail Challenge.

Also, looking forward to throwing the baby Rage Tails.

Happy New Year!!!!

Just like a slow T rig in shallow conditions, 8ft or less. A slow, short lift/fall/pause or drag/settle technique is very productive. When fishing rocks or grass, keep the rod tip up slightly and the bait will be extremely snag proof. The advantage of this rig is a more horizontal fall than using a bullet weight on the line ahead of the hook and the lighter the hook weight, the slower the fall. Swimminig it slowly works as well when the fish are looking for a moving target. Hope that helps

i was super impressed by the rage tail line of products from the first time i used them. it all started with the baby rage craw, t-rigged weightless on a 1/0 EWG Gamakatsu. this one pond i fished was giving me trouble catching them on soft plastics, they just wouldnt bite anything soft plastic...till i introduced them to the BRC and they absolutely tore it up. i would toss it out then reel it in like a topwater and then just kill it, it falls real slow and thats when the bass would hit it, thats if they didnt already hit it when i was fishing it like a topwater. the rage craws are very versatile baits and can be fished a variety of ways.

i also love the lizards and the toads.

I haven't caught anything on the rage craw yet. Tried florida rig,small finesse jigs,T-rig weightless and weighted.

I dunno why,I do well on paca craws and other trailer craws.

I've given a them a chance several times and have never gotten them to work. I have no doubt they catch fish they just don't seem to work for me.
