        Best Uses

        • Reaction fishing

        Comments about Rapala Original Floater Hard Bait, F18 Series:

        This is best used as a jerk bait to catch aggressively feeding fish on a reation strike. It mimics a dieing baitfish very well, however if you dont fish it just the right speed it floats to the surface and the next time you rip the rod it comes out of the water. I have also used it in cold cold water (mid november in Wisconsin cold water temp just below freezing)I works well there as well to crank but slow it catches post spawn muskies.

                      I've caught many bass on it, nice crankbait
                      not the best lake lure, it's more of a topwater lure.
