Rapala Shad Rap Hardbaits - SR07
Shad raps have always been a go to bait for me. I catch more bass on them anywhere at anytime. You can't go wrong with them. The only disadvantage to them for me is durability. That could be more my fault than the lure's. The balsa wood is easy to bust if cast onto docks or rocks. But they make more everyday. There is not a time of year I don't throw them. Just a great all around lure.

I'm sold on these
This past weekend, I was having a very slow start. Nothing in the boat yet my father already had 3 and noon was shortly approaching. I opened the box on this bait and cast it for the first time. On my 3rd cast, I had a spot. a few casts later, I had a catfish. This bait ended up bringing in 7 fish for me that day, including a nice crappie.
I used it again the next day as a storm was moving in, and it still brought in 4 more.
I'm going to purchase this bait in different colors, as there's something about it that fish like, and very versatile to catch many different species (including a perch bite)

I bought this lure after my friend caught a 4lb Largemouth on one. This lure caught all my fish, and was tied on to my line about 80% of the time. I caught numerous fish with it all year long. The biggest I caught was 19 inches. I had a bigger one break off though. The shad color is my favorite, it seems to out produce the bluegill color even though I fish in ponds where bluegill is the only forage. This is overall a great lure.

tried and true
when i lived in Arizona, this lure was the cats meow! i cant even count how many bass my dad and i caught. he still uses it and it doesnt work as well as in the past. when the bass would push the schools of shad to the surface, we would cast over the school so the lure ran right under it and BAM evey cast was a fish. probably the funnest fishing i have ever done.
