The super soft ultra-slim Finesse Plastic body on a precision lead-head jig catches slab-sized panfish when conventional methods fail. Catch trophy-sized panfish without live bait with this unique finesse lure.
The Ratso’s horizontal orientation resembles a small minnow. The lifelike Finesse Plastic tail is constantly on the move and is all that is needed, since the Ratso
should be used as-is, without live bait. In shallow water situations, darken your portable fishhouse by closing all windows and peer down the hole. A bright-headed Ratso jig that can be easily seen is best used in this situation. When the head disappears… set the hook! The larger size 6 Ratso can be used for walleye with excellent results. The Ratso’s head shows up well on electronics, making them ideal choices in deep water.
The size 10 Ratso is pure dynamite when ’gills aren’t feeding; a small Ratso dangled in front of their nose is hard to resist! A size 6 Ratso is an excellent choice with
an ultra-light rod rigged with 2- to 4-pound line. Keep a rod rigged in your car at all times … The size 6 Ratso will catch crappies, ’gills, bass, catfish, perch and especially
trout. Its size is the perfect mimic of a shiner minnow, which all fish love. Speaking of shiners … When crappies, walleyes, trout and big ’gills are on a minnow feed, almost nothing outshines a Precious Metal Series Ratso. Choose a Nickel Head and Hook in Glow Brite, Glow Brite Blue or Smoke Glitter to match emerald shiners and fatheads… Pick a Gold Head and Hook and match golden shiners or mayflies. There are definitely times when metal rocks! Choose the right color body, head and hook and the Ratso can mimic just about any forage that swims!

Can't be beat on panfish on all levels especially through the ice. Aggressive, lethargic doesn't matter they are deadly. Tie one on
easy to use

Due to the unseasonably warm weather, I have only tried these in open water while fishing from the docks at our favorite local lake. Have caught some nice gills using the Ratso. The gills love the action of the quivering tails, and I haven't needed tipping with waxworms. Would recommend the Ratso for a day of fun fishing.
