There’s a new fishing lure coming to town. The new snagless Rippertail fishing lure will be the first of its kind, and may be coming to a store near you.
Brought to you by Rippertail Lures, the original snagless crappie jig will feature a plastic body jig to create a weedless appenditure.
“Of course, there are weedless hooks with the plastic defectors which help the issue but don’t totally eliminate getting snagged, as well as many fishermen believe it can inhibit the hook-set,” said John Nance, owner of Rippertail Lures, based in Blue Springs, Mo.
According to Nance, with the weedless portion being a soft plastic versus the stiff plastic bristle currently known on the current market, the bite is not effective.
“Testing this lure just one trip on the water thus far, seven bites produced seven fish… leading me to believe this concept is one that works,” said Nance.
