From Strike King, the Rage Tail Rage Bug features a ribbed body and patented Rage Tail flanges that make it the ultimate flipping bait!
This bait excels in the thickest, nastiest cover you can find, whether that is in the heart of a laydown, the middle of a weedmat, or way back underneath a dock. The Rage Bug perfectly mimics a foraging crawfish or bluegill. You can rig the Structure Bug on almost any worm hook, but to get the most solid hookups, try using a straight shank, heavy gauge flipping hook, such as the Mustad Grip Pin Max Flippin’ Hook. A heavy bullet weight (¾ – 2 oz) pegged above the hook will help get the Structure Bug through thick mats or down into heavy bush.

Another super-effective technique that has recently become popular amongst pros and weekend warriors alike utilizes the Rage Bug on a free-swinging jig head. Rigged this way, the Rage Bug’s flanges flap and displace tons of water during a steady retrieve. Many have found success fishing this method on tapered, rocky points or in creek channels. A medium heavy baitcasting rod and 12-17 lb fluorocarbon line is a great setup for catching bass with this technique.
