Rapala created a series of lures that allow anglers more understanding about their fish-attracting products just by reading the label. For example, the new “DT” series of Rapala’s are labelled DT-4, DT-20, etc. and the acronym stands for “Dives-To” 4 feet, 20 feet, and so on.
In similar manner, Storm created a “GT” series searchbait-minnow labelled “360-GT,” intended for use 360 degrees around the angler casting position. The “GT” stands for “Go-To” lure. Pretty catchy, pretty simple, and as I discovered, pretty effective.
The supple, soft, durable, plastic body offers a wide swimming tail action that wobbles left to right as it is retrieved. The wobble from the tail causes the head to roll left and right a bit, emanating a faint, resonant, rattle sound from the jig head as the lure is retrieved. Depth is controlled by angler speed of retrieve, the selected weight of the jig head and the size of the tail selected in the available assortment of the GT series.
Al Lindner says, “Throw it out, turn the reel handle, that’s it. Incredibly productive, incredibly effective.” We all know that when Al Lindner says it that way, I think you gotta try it for yourself. So I did. I believe Al.
I fished these in Florida, North Carolina and New York in the last few months to field test their effective attraction. A faster retrieve caused a gentle internal rattle sound to emanate - an audible frequency sound that seemed to drive fish nuts. Not sure the fish were attracted to the lure or just wanted to kill the sound source because it bothered them. Either way, I caught smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike and crappie on these enticing “Go-To” lures. Do I like them? Yes! An understatement.
Why do I like them? They are affordable priced. They are packaged with three tails, one tail is pre-mounted to the rattling head, and two tails are spares. The jig head is molded around a VMC fish hook. They are a “keep-it-simple bait.” Right now, this toss and retrieve bait is available in 11 common baitfish color patterns and three sizes, perfect for a tasty predator ambush. They are inexpensive, priced from $4 to $6.
See a video about how to use this simple, easy to fish bait. Al Lindner talks about it in some detail as you watch through this video: https://youtu.be/SXpFV_HBxmk.
