Rapala OG Tiny 4

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. Tiny is a thin, flat-sided balsa bait with a tight wobble and finesse-like action. The thin design and lightweight circuit board lip moves less water and provides a sensitive feel of bottom structure. Tiny runs to about 4 feet, is 2 1/4 inches long, weighs 5/16 ounce and sports a pair of No. 5 VMC Hybrid Trebles and comes in 19 colors which were hand-picked by Ott. MSRP $9.99

Rapala BX Mid Brat

BX Brat square-bill crankbaits feature a balsa-wood core within a brawny hard-plastic shell. Rapala balsa baits famously float up and back out of cover well, minimizing snags. Encasing a balsa core in copolymer armor allows a BX Brat to bounce off cover and trigger bites without hanging up often and getting beat up. The new BX Mid Brat dives as deep as 5 feet. It measures 2 ½ inches, weighs 7/16th an ounce and comes armed with two sticky sharp VMC No. 4 black-nickel, round-bend treble hooks. BX Brats are available now in three models – BXBB03, the original; BXBB06, the Big Brat; and now BXBB05, the Mid Brat. The numeral following the zero in the model number signifies the bait’s maximum diving depth. MSRP $10.99
