Store, organize, access – repeat. When you’re more organized, you have more time to catch fish. The key is putting your fingers on the right lure at the right time and knowing exactly where it is, is the key.

New Rapala RapStack Tackle Trays are designed for keeping your tackle protected and in perfect order with heavy-duty construction and smart design.

Suitable for hard baits, soft baits, terminal tackle, line, tools and other accessories, Rapala RapStack Trays offer a secure, quick-latch system for single-hand access. Re-writable labels (2 included) allow anglers to label their trays however they like – by different types of lures (saltwater or freshwater), different species (bass, walleye, trout), or different techniques (casting, trolling, jigging).

The stackable design of these trays allows them to be integrated for vertical storage. Rigid dividers secure tackle in place and accommodate various-sized baits.

Made of highly rigid, cold and heat resistant UV material, these trays will last for years and easily withstand transitions from the garage or basement to the boat to backpacks. Wherever you want to go, Rapala RapStack

Tackle Trays are ready to go, too. Visit for more information.

The challenge was put before the design engineers at Rapala: Can you design a lure for today’s modern, tech-savvy angler that offers the proven effectiveness of the legendary Jigging Rap coupled with the needs of forward facing sonar?

Their answer: The new Jigging Rap Magnum.

Designed for targeting individual fish (bass, walleye, lake trout, etc.) when using forward-facing sonar in open water, the new Jigging Rap Magnum falls fast and true. It’s heavy-weighted body (1-1/8 oz.) makes it a great choice for casting, pitching or vertical jigging, and allows anglers to easily reach depths down to 100 feet in a matter of seconds for hard-to-get-to bass located in deep-water reservoirs.

Designed with the same Jigging Rap fish-catching swimming action, the Jigging Rap Magnum is built with a durable one-piece body and fin design that allows it to take a beating and keep on catching. For the business end, a built-in, heavy-duty swivel on the belly holds a large, super sharp size 5 VMC ® black nickel treble hook, which is complemented by a large VMC black nickel single tail hook.

The new Jigging Rap Magnum is available in size 7. It has a body length of 2-3/4 inches.
