This Thing Produces!!
The River Rascal spinner bait continues to prove itself a great high waiter river smallie bait - a very small frame with 1/4 oz weight that drops horizontal quickly with the proper trailer in all conditions allowing you to get the bait down or where you want it. Hit a spot where a fish is (get in the zone, cone of vision) and it's a hit. And - you can quickly adjust level in the column as a result. Great grass bed lure as it comes through straight at your level of choice and drops vertical on the pause. The small frame means virtually no hang ups, tracking the bottom though I did have a few rock snags. I'll grant that once conditions become more typical they will hit other SB's as well as other typical baits just fine too.
River Rascal is a proven bait now for me now. Almost 100 SMB boated on my last 5 trips when others, even locals fishing live bait in these challenging conditions were in a conundrum. Great profile, good balance, easily "roll casts" into tight spots from a kayak. A great tool- I even have some black ones I will be trying when the water is really high and muddy...
Sorry that this probably sounds like a sales pitch. I'm not sponsored by Fitt or anyone for that matter.
Just saying these baits flat out continue to work for me in tough river conditions.
