Rapala Jigging Shad Rap
Shad Rap Jigs!! Another weapon!!
This is an addition to my review of the Rapala jigs that go along with these. This was a LONG overdue addition to the Rapala line. A larger body along with killer colors and the unbelievable action will make you forget about those hammered spoons!! (Not that I do not have some of my favorites all the time) Since loading up with colors that are natural bait mimics, my success rate when jigging has increased as I have spent time testing both in the water. Catch rate is about 3 to 1 with the Shad Raps. A great sleeper bait!!!

Not just for ice
I live in florida and most people here have never heard of ice fishing. I love this lures, it works great for suspending bass on HOT SUMMER DAYS. Thats right, summer, this bait work all year round for all kinds of fish. The hooks are wonderful and hold up to the largest of bass. I just wish my local BPS would carry them

Great for saltwater too
Erratic action really gets multi-species going. You can cast out and jig back right up to the boat/seawall and then along sides of boat/seawall in either direction w/o even lifting from the water! Flicks of the wrist make it dart all over the place.Stays in the strike zone depth where the fish can see it and follow it all the way in before slashing at it wildly! Be patient after reeling in and make sure to give it some vertical action at your feet like muskie fishing with the figure 8's at the boat. Get it? and Get it!

Out-fished live minnows
I used this lure on what turned out to be a very slow day of ice fishing on Lake Simcoe. I out-fished my mates 3 to 1 by tipping this lure with a white Gulp waxie on the treble hook. Too bad all the perch I caught were little dinks! Try the pearl colour as shown.
