Rago Glide Gill
Featuring an incredibly realistic appearance and action, the Rago Glide Gill is a bluegill swimbait displaying the glide style swimming action. Jerry Rago is one of the true innovators in lure making with dozens of design patents to his name and the source of countless ingenious engineering concepts that have been adopted by other companies in the popular swimbaits. After years of tinkering and refining, Rago has finally released one of his most closely guarded designs - the V-Joint Hinge which results in an unparalleled side to side gliding action. The Glide Gill utilizes this hinge to produce a swimming action that imitates one of bass's favorite meals: Bluegill.
Displaying the detail Rago Swimbaits are known for, the Glide Gill makes you question whether this is a lure you want to cast or hang on the wall. A true work of art that captures the essence of bluegill to the "T" and just wait until you see it in the water. Producing a consistent wide gliding action, the Glide Gill capitalizes on one of the hottest trends in bass fishing today, with its subtle, natural sway. Retrieval options are numerous; with a steady moderate retrieve the Glide Gill will simply swim with an S-motion, but that's really not the beauty of this swimmer. The most effective, and the Rago approved method, of fishing this bluegill swimbait is to impart pumps of the rod tip throughout the entire retrieve back to the boats. You'll experience something no other swimbait has been able to accomplish, full control of which direction your bait is going. If you want it to glide back and forth you can do so with a standard cadence, however, if you impart twitches after a pump of the rod, the swimbait will continue on the same direction with a slightly different path.
This is what our resident swimbait expert considers to be the dagger for any bass still determining if they want to eat the bluegill.
Constructed from a durable resin with a very specific weighting that Rago himself tank tests out on each bait. You'll be pleased with your purchase from the moment you see this bait and ecstatic once you see the results.
We offer the Rago Glide Gill in two colors: Bright Gill and Dark Gill. The bait measures 7.5" and weighs in at around 4oz.
