Product Description

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.

Ice Fishing

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.

Open 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!

  2. Excellent Panfish Jig 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 5th 2017

    I purchased a two-pack of the chartreuse size 6 Ratso jigs a while back. Just tried them a few days ago for the first time and caught a dozen nice bluegill and 10.5 and 12 inch crappie. The plastic on both jigs were in rough shape by the end of the day so I went online and ordered more. It has now become my :"go to" jig for panfish.

  3. These Things Catch Fish 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 1st 2017

    This year in the Trout Streams of PA, I had a real enlightening. I was always an ultra lite spinner guy, always caught most of my fish on them. I'm always up for trying something new, just to see what all the hype is about in those adds & thinking I was missing out on something.
    This year I purchased a few Ratso's in a couple different colors & I'm glad I did.
    Wasn't having much luck the one day & tied on a Ratso for a test. Damn, I caught a Rainbow on the second cast.. During this trip half my fish were caught on spin flies & the others were caught on the Ratso. I found a new staple for my tackle & I'm picky person. I'm a customer now; Thanks to all you Guys at Custom Jigs.

  5. Go-to panfish jig 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 24th 2017

    The ratso is my go to pan fish jig, whether you fish for bluegill, crappie or perch. I use them in open water as well as ice fishing with equal results. My favorite color is glow blue but have caught them on other colors. Don't go fishing without a handful of these lures in your box. Also, tremendous service.

  6. Panfish-excellent jig 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 24th 2017

    The RS8 or with either pink or chartreuse head used with or w/o the "Ratso" body is an excellent jig. Sorry, but I frequently remove the Ratso body and replace it with Berkley "Gulp" products such as chartreuse or pink maggots or similar, or pieces of "Gulp" earthworms, pumpkinskin n'crawlers, or red worms and/or combinations. Regardless however used, this is one of my few "go to" jigs.

  8. Wow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 25th 2017

    Crappies, gills and perch....THE very best ice fishing jig I have ever used. I usually fish the same areas all winter long but this lure has gotten me more fish in the last week than all winter last year. Tipped with a waxie or by itself.....incredible. Plus it was delivered quickly

  9. Great lure, great service! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 18th 2017

    The ratso is very effective on panfish - my favourite jig for this. Was very impressed with the online ordering process, how quickly the order was picked and shipped, and the quality of the products. Really love that all the jigs have the eyes cleaned out, ready to tie on.
