For intermediate bait sizes that 3" Ripper, the 2 3/4" Fat Fork and the 2 1/2" Thump-it really take the cake. I know from personal experience that the Fat Fork and the 2 1/2" Thump-It will take walleye/sauger, smallies, largemouth, both black and white crappies, sunfish/bluegill, white bass, sheephead, carp, channel cat, dogfish, northern pike and at least small muskies.
Some may feel that the three baits may be too large for crappie but don't fool yourself. Even the larger sunfish/bluegills will smack these right long with perch. The 2 1/2" Thump It gave up a 15" Mississippi River perch. Several 9 to 9 1/2" sunfish have come on the Fat Fork. All one needs to be aware of is that while these baits can fish beautifully on a light jig, they do call for a slightly larger hook for clearance. I don't fish any of these three on least than a size 4 hook and most often on a size 2. Head size is something that the fish will dictate but I like using 1/32 heads which gives all three a real teaser drop rate and yes I cast a #2 hook on a 1/32 with no problems whatever.
