Product Reviews

Johnny Darter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep jigging with Johnson Darter I bought this product recently for deep jigging. I have been using a rapala, moonshine and northland version. I like the idea of the rattle and the heavier weight. When I got the baits I noticed the larger single hook. This is great for bigger fish. I only have two small complaints. The fin may need to be bigger to compensate for the added weight. The fall rate is a bit fast right now. This may change soon. Also the colors are adequate but adding a red would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGHLY RECOMMENED I finally found some Johnny Darter lures in a store near me and didn't hesitate to hop on the great opportunity. Cant beat the quality AND price! Sure enough the Darter provided me with some nice walleye in no time at all vertical jigging the Saginaw River! I love the big strong hook on the back! The heavier weights by size are KEY and a great help in the tough current/deeper waters! Can't thank the product development team enough for the great lure they made!!! I no longer snag as much and my hook up ratio has improved with the quality hooks they provide. Caught multiple species first time out and had a nice Walleye dinner after! I plan to get all sizes and colors ASAP! I have glow pink and the fire tiger. Cant wait to try out the other colors. These lures are going to set me apart in upcoming tournaments!! Thanks again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A walleye killer! I have used this bait for 3 years now on walleye. It's a great bait, even better than live bait some days. On a October trip to Leech lake, Mn I caught 3 walleye over 28" and numerous others. One bad thing is the clear plastic fin on the tail pops off after a few fish. I have contacted Johnson lures and they did agree to replace 5 baits but only one time. Great bait but buy a lot of them! They would not send me any replacement tails to repair my baits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable new jigging rap with rattles! First time out with my box full of Johnny Darter jigging raps tonight! These are awesome lures and definately will give Rapala jigging raps a run for there money! Johnny lures eliminated the nose hook which prevents less snagging. They also incorporated rattles, which calls fish in and drives them crazy! These are a must have in any tackle box!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ice jig that I have used! I walleye fish in deep water lakes in Tn. and have a box loaded with spoons and ice jigs .The Johnny Darter is the best I use and love the big rear hooks.I really like the great color selection.As any walleye fisherman knows,having fish get unhooked is a big problem but with this bait and the hook system I have cut this problem in half.
