Since I am new to fishing for great lakes browns/steelies through the ice, I was wondering if jigging rapalas have a place in my tacklebox? I have a pretty good idea what I will need, and I'm looking at them wondering if they will work and are they too small.(smallest size).

Any input would be appreciated,

I saw those at Lakeside's today, what makes them move?? I didn't see a fin on the tail, just a sassy shad type body. Does the tail provide enough resistance to make it glide?? Let me know how they work, if the fish are aggressive, it sure beats live bait.

I saw those new lures at a local baitshop too and bought a couple packs. They're not giving them away, though. About $5 for a four pack. The tail moves with very little effort, but they seem like they will be very delicate. They have a tail like mister twister shad baits v.s. the regular mr. twister curly tail.
And to answer the original question, I catch a handful of lakers every year on Higgins with them.

krt,

Thanks for the reply. They are about $4 at Lakesides. What size do you get them on??(jigging rapala) I have mostly the smallest size(#?), and the size bigger. Newby to trout through the ice, just want to be prepared. Hate to watch fish that won't hit because I don't have what they want.(as if that don't happen enough anyway)
