Rage Tail Lobster Comments
The Rage Tail Lobster is the “next generation” of the soft plastic rage craw.
The Lobster has a bigger profile, bigger claws and produces more vibration than any other craw available to bass anglers. Coming in at approx. 5″, the rage lobster is likely to become a great lure for anglers tossing texas rigged craws or seeking a big jig trailer. The vibration produced by these big claws and the great color selection makes it a great choice to catch big bass anywhere.

Rage Lobster Rigging
- This design is our largest profile Craw specifically made for generating the most water movement and visual action ever produced from a Craw style bait. Its versatility provides the fisherman with an opportunity to attract even the most finicky fish in heavily stained waters.
- The Rage Lobster can be rigged with a variety of hook sizes and styles depending on the type of presentation you are looking for. The most popular is Texas rigged using a bullet weight from 1/8 oz to 1 oz depending on the amount of wind and water depth when fishing. A ¼ oz is a standard weight and gives maximum action on the Lobster even with this very light amount. For casting with a drag and stop, or lift and fall retrieve, an un-pegged weight is most popular. For flipping or pitching in brush or trees, a pegged weight is advised to keep the bait and weight together which helps you to better navigate the structure as well as provide a more vertical presentation.
- Using the Rage Lobster as a Jig Trailer is very popular when a much larger or longer profile is desired over the standard chunk size trailer. This can be used on the standard skirted football, flipping or casting jigs, or on a stand up jig head as well.
- Carolina rigged is also very effective using as light of a weight as necessary for the wind and depth conditions. This technique allows the bait to free swim at any and all depths which is very attractive to the fish.
- Another up and coming rig is using a keel weighted hook. This allows the bait to fall with a different profile and action and is extremely effective for finicky fish in shallow water and over grass or moss beds. Light or low wind conditions are best for this style of presentation.
- Completely weightless using an EWG hook in the sizes mentioned below, gives an excellent top water presentation that allows an enticing fluttering, flapping top action and lets the bait slowly fall in the grass pockets when needed.
Any of the popular hook designs are effective with the Lobster which includes Standard offset worm hook and EWG hook. Preferred sizes are 4/0 to 6/0 in each.
