The Ranger by Robert's Lures is one of the favorite casting lures of anglers across the world. Unfortunately, it's one of those lures that is always forgotten about. These lures shine for just about every fish on the planet from tuna to mahi to cubera snapper. A couple of friends of mine recently returned from Panama where Robert's Ranger was literally the only lure they used all week for cubera snapper, roosterfish, tuna etc.
Another good friend of mine took a once-in-a-lifetime fishing trip to Christmas Island this past December/January and it was their top producer of tuna, trevally and just about everything else that they caught. He told me, "Our guide had never heard of our reels (Van Staal) and had no clue what Yozuri lures were but knew exactly what Rangers were and said we should have brought more since we lost twenty to the sharp coral."
He put it best when he said, "If I was stranded on an island and only had one lure to feed myself, it would be a Ranger."
With that said, if you've never tied on a Robert's Ranger, I think it would be worth a shot.www.robertslures.com
