RPE Tackle is pleased to present the speakeasy. Similar to how the flappers of prohibition
welcomed men to drink, the flapper on the speakeasy welcomes gamefish to eat! As you
reel the speakeasy across the water, the flapper tail gurgles, kicks, and flaps, mimicking the
tail of a fleeing baitfish. this subtle action is where the bait gets its name “speakeasy” and it
is irresistible to nearby gamefish. The speakeasy is also unique in that it is really two baits in one. Fully assmebled, it is a modern variation of the iconic buzz bait and should be fished as such. To fish it as a more traditional topwater bait, remove the bait portion from the wire and attach the included
treble hook to the bottom hook hanger.
