There are anglers who eat, breathe and sleep their favorite species, such as bass, walleye, trout and muskies.
And then there are the vast rest of us who find happiness in whatever is tugging on our line, whether it’s a bluegill, a pickerel, a catfish, or a big ol’ bass. In fact, the more different kinds of fish caught in an outing, the better. After all, it’s the spice in life that keeps things interesting.
So, what should you get for an angler who wants fishing action, regardless of what’s biting?

Rattlin’ Rapala® – Size No. 7 in Bluegill

It comes down to this: the Rattlin’ Rapala offers the perfect combination between the legendary Rapala wobble and sound, which heightens curiosity in fish and triggers investigation.
