Jeff:
What's going on, guys. Jeff here from Burly Fishing on the Monsterbass Channel, and I want to talk to you guys about one of my new favorite Ned Rigging baits, and that is the Rabid Baits Fox Tail. Check this out. It comes in a bunch of amazing different colors. I'm going to break them all down for you today, as well as some of my favorite rigging options for it, and some hot tips that should help you catch some bass. We'll get to that here in a second.

Jeff:

It's tons of tips on here, there's some great content creators featured on this channel, and there's more fun stuff coming your way, as well as previews of upcoming boxes and all that good stuff.

And if you would be so awesome as a jump over to my channel for a hot second, Burly Fishing, and drop that a subscription as well, maybe drop me a comment on one of my recent videos and let me know that she came over from the Monsterbass Channel, love to see you guys there.

Jeff:
So for those of you who aren't familiar with Ned Rigging, Ned Rigging is a very simple concept, a very simple technique to catching bass, and it's freaking deadly. There is a reason that we call it the deadly Nedly. All you need to do is grab a jig head, really, any type of jig head's fine. We prefer mushroom headed jigs because they sit like this on the bottom. You can also get a similar style with an EWG, which allows you with that extra wide gap there to rig it weedless, so if you're dealing with an area with a lot of cover, maybe some fallen trees, some rip raps and rocks and things like that, that you normally get snagged on with an open hook, even if you have this weed guard from something like these are the Z-Man ShroomZ right here, then you go with that EWG. That would get you covered.

Jeff:
And all you do is you take that and you pair it up with a plastic like this amazing Rabid Bates Fox Tail, and what you're going to end up with is just a simple plastic jig combo that's going to sit flat on the bottom like this, and you honestly don't even need to do anything at that point. So we're just going to drop this bait into some key areas where we find bass and just let it sit there. We can dead stick it and hop it on the bottom like you would a shaky head, we can lift it and let it fall, we can swing it back to the boat, we can do all sorts of things. You can even swim this thing, just like this, all the way back to the boat. It just does a pretty dang good job of representing a dying, wounded, feeding bait fish, so it's good in so many different scenarios.

Jeff:
This is one of those baits, when used at the right time and the right place, is going to yield you like 30, 40, 50 fish. You're going to crush it, and I've done that myself multiple times. It's a good time. It's a great bait, and it's one I usually have tied on, on the old finesse rod as a backup, ready to go, anytime I'm out on the water. More specifically, this Rabid Baits Fox Tail is going to help yield more bites just because of this right here. So what we have, or what you'll notice right up at the top is we have actual fox fur that is tied into the plastic, so it's molded right in, it's not coming out, it's going to be fairly durable up there, and it provides an insane action that plastics can not mimic. You just can't, you can't beat that, and it looks even better in the water, so I'm going to show you guys that here in just a second.

Jeff:
Before I do, real quick, I want to show you all the colors that this thing comes in and what we typically rig it with, so I'm going to give you some suggestions there. When you buy this bait from Rabid Baits' website, you're going to see that they have about 10 different colors. I've got seven here that I can share with you guys, and they're also sold in a six pack, so you get a decent number of these. So here we have this green pumpkin with this chartreuse fur tail. Look at that. This is actually one of my favorite colors right here. My second favorite is actually this one right here. This is called ghost. So it comes with this white... I've used this one a bit. That's why it looks kind of funky, but you got the white for up there. Look at the color though, that almost electric shiner flake, gives you that flash, right? It looks good, and then the plastic is pretty clear. Love that color, great finessey color.

Jeff:
We've got the ruby red here with that nice red tail, some red flake in the plastic. Got some gray to the tail on this one with some gold flake, golden and black flake in there, look at that, more of a brownish plastic. We've got the dark green with some gold dust in there. Look at that. A little added flash to that one, looks good. You got the black and green pumpkin, so some black flake in there, black fur tail and the green pumpkin plastic, and we've got the one we're going to toss in the tank. I really like this one too. So this is more of an orange and red flake in the plastic with... Look at this tail. It's got highlights on the tip. This is the most Fox like looking one that I would choose maybe from the pack.

Jeff:
And I've got this one paired up. This is the one we're going to test in the tank here. I've got this paired up with a one sixth ounce Woo! Tungsten Ned Rig head. When rigging these things, there's a couple of things you need to know. Rabid Baits plastics are a softer plastic, which means they're less durable. So the thing to keep in mind with this is that it's a finesse bait. Treat it as such. This is not a Z-Man plastic. However, it has a ton more action than a Z-Man plastic is going to have. It can still last you for several fish, no problem, if you rig it right. So these, I prefer to have rigged up on lighter wire Ned heads. If I'm getting Woo! Tungsten, for example, I'm going [one-knot 00:00:05:49], maybe smaller size hook, so light wire hook. It's not going to beat up the plastic as much when you're threading it on and it'll stay on for much longer.

Jeff:
Also keep in mind as you're fishing this thing that you want to be subtly aggressive, you can't be overly aggressive. So I wouldn't fish this the same as if I had a Z man plastic on this here EWG Ned, because I can beat the crap out of that. That is something where I'll throw it into any cover, I'll bounce it around, I'll hop it over logs and rocks and not worry about it. With a Rabid Baits net, I'm going to toss that in front of weed lines, I'm going to use it when I'm bed fishing, it's a bait that's really going to excel when you're dead sticking and maybe doing little baby hops. Subtle movements are going to excel with this bait.

Jeff:
As far as the setup goes that you should be using this with, I've mentioned this setup on the Monsterbass channel before. My go-to is a Duckett Silverado. This is a seven foot medium power fast action rod. I like that fast action tip because you're going to get subtle bites, you want to be able to just lift up and have that hook right into the fish's mouth, right? We don't need to play the fish as much, it's a single hook, fish will be pinned, it'll be fine. As far as that medium rod, I think that's necessary or even a medium light, just so that you get more sensitivity, so it's easier to sense, feel the fish, feel the cover that you're going over. All of that helps a lot when you're trying to detect those subtle bites.

Jeff:
Now, as far as the line goes, I go with a [hi-vis 00:07:10] yellow line. We've got some power pro 10 pound tests here because you're going to get a lot of the bites where you just see it in the line before you actually feel it. You get some really subtle bites, so you need as sensitive a setup as you can go with. The hi-vis yellow line is just going to help you out a bit more, and then I like to throw on a little fluoro leader, so I've got about seven foot leader here, fluorocarbon line at about an eight pound test. I've been using this setup for Ned Rig fishing for a long time and I've had a ton of success with it. So 10 out of 10, would recommend, go get it.

Jeff:
All right. To wrap this up, let's take these Fox Tails, put them under water. You'll see the amazing action. I think you'll agree, these are a pretty fantastic Ned Rig bait. Look at that fox fur. I'm not doing anything, there's no aerator in here, there's no current. Now imagine you drop this... Like I said, it excels in open water conditions. Drop this in a spot where you've got current, you've got wind, you've got all sorts of movement in the water, so that fox fur is going to be doing that consistently, and that's going to look good. This thing, I guarantee, is going to draw you guys bites, it's going to look good. You can optionally drop shot this, throw it with a tube style weight, and rig it. You can rig this weedless on a tiny, one-knot small EWG. You could use Daiichi Standout Dropshot hooks. I think you can rig it up really well with that, and you can go weedless and get into tough cover, and it's going to look good. But just look at even just here, Ned Rigged. This is such a unique, amazing plastic. You guys need to try this out.

Jeff:
All right, you guys. So that is the Rabid Baits Fox Tail. If you're getting your Monsterbass box this month for the month of December, you might see that in there so stay tuned.
