Features:

  • The Rapala Original Floater F03 is a classic 1 1/2 inch, 1/16 ounce balsa wood minnow lure.
  • Twitch it on top or retrieve it as a shallow runner.
  • Wounded minnow action is irresistible to trout, walleye, bass, and panfish everywhere.

The lure that started it all - the Rapala Original Floater - is still at it all these years after Lauri Rapala first threw his cork and tinfoil prototype on a Finnish lake in 1936. This F03 model measures 1 1/2 inches, weighs 1/16 ounce and runs up to 4 feet deep unassisted. Whether twitched on top as a surface bait, retrieved as a shallow runner, weighted with a split shot for medium depth or bottom walked off a three-way swivel or bottom bouncer, the wounded minnow action continues to be irresistible to trout, walleye, bass, and panfish everywhere. Lures come pre-rigged with size 12 premium black nickel VMC® hooks. Hand tuned and tank-tested to ensure that world renowned OG Floater action straight from the box. Available in over 10 classic colors.

Great trout lure in my part of the world. Discount tackle filled the order quickly and were great at keeping me in the loop.

The Rapala Original Floater F03, in rainbow and brown trout patterns, has consistently caught fun size rainbow and brown trout, along with the occasional largemouth bass, while fishing the waters of Mono and Inyo County. Whether it's a lake, river, stream or creek, I've had good strike ratios per attempts with these lures. They have believable color patterns and great swimming action, provided you moderate your retrieve to current conditions. Discount Tackle offers good prices, especially when on sale, shipping is on time and contents are well packaged.

I bought these Rapala's to target Small mouth bass in a shallow local river. I caught just about everything this body of water had to offer. I landed many small mouth bass and large mouth bass. I also was lucky enough to land a few creek chubs and Rock bass and along with a handful of catfish. These baits give off a flash just like an injured minnow. I will be adding other colors to my arsenal for when the season changes.
Thank you

I got these for trout fishing. I’ve caught a lot of trout in the rainbow and brown trout colors. I’ve ordered extra in case I lose a few.
