The Prohunter Rankaru Stick Bait is a culmination of years of development and testing by professional charter fishermen in the Maldives. The Maldives is the ultimate fishing destination with the most aggressive and diverse species of predatory fish in the world. Named after the highly prized Maldivian Rosy Jobfish, the Rankaru Stickbait has proven itself on species from around the world like the stunning Roosterfish, Giant Trevally or GT, the lure breaking Cubera or Dog Toothed Snapper and deep water pelagics like Tuna, Sailfish and Wahoo.
Constructed with Prohunter's tough proprietary formulation of ABS and rigged with super strong #8 Japanese made spilt rings and proven VMC single inline hooks, these lures will certainly withstand the punishment. The textured body traps a film of air that leaves a micro bubble trail when retrieved through the water. Built-in internal 'quiet' rattles' are designed to imitate the sound of fleeing bait fish and are still quiet enough to not spook your prey when working over clear and shallow water. Select Colors feature Prohunter's proprietary 'LumoX' coating so are effective in low light and night time presentations.
The Prohunter Rankaru Stick bait is a floating lure and is weight balanced for long and stable casts. It is designed to be versatile and can be worked with the rod held high for a 'walk-the-dog' style or jerked with the rod down for a mid water presentation. Its bibless low water resistant design also allows for the fastest possible retrieve. In that high speed mode the lure exhibits a slight side to side and rolling motion that Yellowtail, schooling Tuna, Wahoo and Billfish find irresistible. Or a combination of all methods will elicit even the most finicky prey. Remember to set the hook HARD. Although VMC inline singles are very sharp and much stronger than trebles they do require a much firmer hook set.
