OG Series — From a passion of bait building as a childhood hobby to customizing lures as a professional angler, the OG Series® is born of the sawdust from Ott DeFoe’s Garage. The Rapala® Slim is a balsa, flat-sided bait with a medium wobble and tight side-to-side action. The Rapala® Tiny is a thin, flat-sided balsa bait with a tight wobble and finesse-like action. These are two can’t-miss lures that offer plenty of multispecies action.
Rapala fillet knives – Rapala fillet knives taught the world how to actually enjoy filleting a mess of fish. Rapala offers a wide range of knives including the all-time best-selling Rapala Fish ‘n Fillet series – a must-have for any tackle box. Rapala fillet knives are constructed of premium steel with blades that are razor-sharp and built to last. Flexible blades ensure that every piece of your big catch gets from the water to your plate with ease.
Performance Tool Combo — Three essential tools that every angler should have! The Mag Spring Pliers utilize an ingenious patent pending “Mag-Spring” system that keeps pliers open and ready. The Precision Line Scissors excel at cutting and trimming micro super lines, as well as all other traditional fishing lines. And the Floating Fish Grippers make fast work of landing and releasing your catch without harm to you or the fish.
Classic Vibrax – Next to the Rapala, there may be no other multispecies lure that is more effective in catching fish than the Classic Vibrax spinner. Running from 2 feet to 6 feet, the patented two-part body of the Classic Vibrax emits low-frequency sound vibrations that attract fish and trigger strikes while virtually eliminating line twist.
Largo Shad – Rapala pros swear by the Storm Largo Shad. Originally designed for saltwater, top pros discovered how incredible they are for catching big bass.
