Artisan bass angler Mike “Ike” Iaconelli has offered his unique talents to assist in the development of this masterpiece series of lures. “I’m used to giving baits my own personal touch, tweaking them.” Now those oh-so-special modifications come right out-of-the-box from Rapala. There are three key traits: first, it’s their purposefully muted colors. Ike used to “bake them in the sun” on his trucks dashboard to get that life-like, muted skin tone. The subtler colors can be unbelievably effective when bass aren’t attacking conventional patterns. Next, Ike had Rapala polish the finishes like the translucent candy apple red on a ’57 Chevy for a natural, pearly finish. For the third pivotal ingredient, Ike went super sparkly … with glitter. Not just any glitter, but super fine sprinkles that actually add depth to the appearance of the lure. One of Ike's secrets is all about “using something different, something unique to catch more fish.” Ike's Custom Ink DT’s are all that and more.
