Default Rago 7 Inch Baitfish vs. JSJ Snack Size

I need a good slow sinking bait fish imitator. I want a versatile bait that I can burn,slow roll,etc. anyone use both of these baits?

Funny you should compare those two baits... I actually traded Josh St. John (creator of the the snack size) a rago 6" for his JSJ chartruese shad....

I'll tell you this. If you learn to work the snack size bait correctly you will catch a lot of good tournament quality fish (3+)

Either way you can't go wrong. They are both awesome baits and part of my none fishing catching aresenal. Which isn't either of the baits fault!

Only difference I can think of is - the Rago is extremely hard to find. The JSJ is more readily available.

thanks guys I know both baits have caught fish my question is can you slow roll or burn both baits?

Tom I found the rago bait where you work are you saying your out of them? I'd prefer to get the rago since it looks more like a bait fish

No we have them - but, very few of them - I think we got 4 each and some have already sold.

The JSJ is not for burning - it is a slow roll or even a twitch bait. The 4 jointed ones are for a faster retrieve - but, burning it is not in the cards. The Rago isn't made to burn either - but, it can be fished faster than the JSJ. Don't get me wrong they both rock and we carry both of them as well. Either way you can't go wrong with those baits - they will catch fish (Maybe even tomorrow for me!)

Buy both, I know it will set you back, but think of the good times you will have
No seroiusly the baits are so different from each other.
My bait is more of a twitch bait. (Horizantal sinking)
the Rago is more of a direct retrieve bait (heavy nose down sinker)

I don't throw that many small baits or I would get both. You say "nose down" style bait can you burn your Rago? also do you sell your baits with just a primer coat?

It might be a smelly mess if I was to burn my rago
Both baits can be fished pretty fast. there both going to run pretty close to the surface as a result.
Sorry I don't sell my baits unpainted
