The Rattle Traps over the windy flats have called Fish up and done well. 2 mid sized and two magnums have provoked aggressive Male Bass and Pickerel/. Trolling and casting the Flutter spoons also have taken Males and female Pickerel. The white Grub ,Trout pattern Rapala, Little Fox orange spoon and the shad Rap (a favorite Walleye Bait classic) all got Fish too.

Great tip for the Tiny Torpedo I've not tried on my go to Smallmouth Bass topwater Bait. "Add a split ring to the belly hook. Otherwise, a jumping, gyrating fish can use the hook hanger to twist off."

Trying to determine timeline of Rapalas manufacturing, I have Finland, Ireland marked and non-country specified in my collection.

Jeffrey thanks for the account! The first reel I recall my  father showing me how to cast with was a Johnson Spin caster . I think he put a Heddon Sonic on the line for me. The first lure he gave me for a birthday present was a Creme prop spinner tandem rig in natural color. A copy of the Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper was included in the present .
