Supposed to throw far and slowly sink. Wide wiggle. It comes in 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" lengths. This will make a nice addition to my other UL Rapala favorites: floating, countdown and husky jerk.

Thought the ultra light fishermen would like to hear about this new lure.

Even the shad version should catch some eyes of the bass fishermen too. Thrown on a spinning rod, it could be a proven winner when the lakes in the Southeast are swarming with fledging shad so small that normal baits just won't work.

I have found most rapalas to have 1 size too small of hooks.

The shipment of ultralight minnows just arrived. I gave each size a few throws in the pool. wiggle is wider than a husky jerk the same size. It slowly sinks. It is hefty enough that it should throw a good distance. It is all Rapala said it would be. Looking forward to using them this on bass this April.
