Rapala Deep Tail Dancer
Awsome, but then Rapala Lures have be a hit with me since 1967, but these do what they are supposed to do. go deep and catch Large Mouth Bass. I'm using them now while the winter has set in around Tawakoni dam, running the rises, and it's cold out here, but the stripper fishing is still hot. My fishing buddy is using them to, because he didn't bring the right bait.

i live in canada and we have huge walleyes in our lakes. these fish feed heavily on perch so i threw the perch pattern on and nailed 2 huge walleye and one pike in 10 mins. we where trolling beetween 1.8 and 2 miles/h i highly recomend these lures

I got a couple of the purple ones. I was nailing pike with it all day long while no one else was catching a thing. I don't think it went deeper than 20 feet or so, but that was where the fish were.

Costly poor quality
Rapala's poor workmanship cost me a quality fish. I regularly troll Center Hill Lake for Walleye and use a variety of lures. I started using "Tail Dancers" this past March and have caught a number of 24 inch + fish. I must say though our biggest this season (8lbs, 32") was caught on a Rebel craw. I still had a lot of faith in the Rapalas, until this past weekend. I was using a new 3.5 "flash perch" trolling with 17lb. Trilene in 25' plus water on the outside rod. The fish hit hard once then jerked the rod hard a second time but didn't pull the drag. I had him coming but then the line went limp, I couldn't believe he could come off with such an aggressive stike. I was right, he still had the lure but I didn't have him since the lip came loose and that was the only thing left on my line. When you pay 7+ dollars for a fishing lure, it shouldn't come apart when a fish hits it. I don't know if I can trust Rapala quality again.
