With a slight exaggeration of the unique Rapala “baitfish in distress” swimming action, the Jointed® gets the undivided attention of otherwise disinterested gamefish. This articulated, or “broken-back” bait can be fished top-to-bottom. Swimming action at the slowest of speeds makes this bait the perfect choice after a cold front when fish are traditionally finicky and in a negative feeding mood. Balsa wood construction with VMC® black nickel hooks. Each is hand-tuned and tank-tested for perfect swimming action right out of the box.
