Strike King : A Chunk Style Trailer Bait that is All the Rage


Date: 6/27/17
Tackle Type: Lures
Manufacturer: Strike King
Reviewer: Cal

Total Score: 7.42 - EDITOR'S CHOICE AWARD

Sometimes, you just want a small, compact little trailer to go at the end of your swimjig but it can be difficult to find a bait that's both compact and has the right style legs to swim around as you move your jig. Strike King has a solution that's all the "Rage". Their Rage Tail Chunk measures just two and half inches (2.5") in length and is designed specifically to compliment the action of your swimjig.


Introducing Strike King's Rage Tail Chunk.

Inside the resealable plastic bag is this hard plastic clamsell.

Impressions: Strike King's Rage series is built around action and their diminutive 2.5" Chunk is a real compact compliment to any swimming jig or even a spinnerbait or buzzbait. It's made with the same, "hi-grade plastic" as the Menace grub we reviewed previously and the same coffee scent. The bait's claws are just as long if not longer than actual body giving it a super compact, yet wide profile.


Not only does this clamshell case slide easily in and out of the original plastic bag, but it opens and securely closes just as easily presenting the perfectly stored baits.


The Rage Chunk is almost all claw!

Real World Tests: I fished Strike King's Rage Chunk on back of a Spotstalker Casting Jig. Normally, I like to just pierce through the body of a chunk trailer to maximize the bait's up and down flopping action, but since I was going to be swimming this bait back to my position rather than dragging or hopping it along the bottom, instead, I threaded the Rage Chunk onto the jig's hook as I would a twintail grub.

The Rage Chunk's body is just the right size to thread onto a jig's hook and once you get it in the water, those arms will swim at even the slowest speeds.


It's really impressive how Strike King has designed this entire series of baits and how easy they are to actuate once rigged and in the water. The Rage Chunk is very effective in the purpose for which it was designed.


This bass seemed to like the combination.
