I’ve had a lot of instances where I needed a shallow-running, small-profile but erratic action for fish in clear water that were either really pressured or skittish of bigger baits. I was a little skeptical of the RipStop at first because it’s small. But it throws well.
I’ve fished it on both a spinning rod and a baitcaster. I did prefer it on a spinning rod because I think it is a finesse bait that you can fish fast and erratic but you want to throw it a long ways. You may fish it on lighter line in really clear water to keep your distance and be more stealthy with it.
