Rapala Super Shad Rap
Caught a 40 inch 28lb pike one the first 20 seconds of trolling it! Was the best lure of the day! Great hooks help keep beast fish on! The paint is amazing and is extremely durable!

When I use this lure I get great results. I just caught a 50" musky last week, and he put up some fight. But the two treble hooks allowed me to set the hook nice and clean so I could land that musky.

Great lure for lunkers!
My Dad bought a red & white one (which isn't sold on this site) at the lodge by the lake we we're at. He ended up landing a 20 pound pike with it! Then I bought one too and had a 18 pounder follow it right to the boat a few times, I guess it wasn't hungry. It was poor fishing that week. The most effective technique for these Rapalas when fishing for pike is to give them a really hard jerk, then reel for a few seconds and repeat. It also can be quickly reeled steadily, but is unappealing to predators when reeled slowly. Very high quality, nice paint job, dives up to 8 feet, to me this is an ideal lure for pike!

FINALLY A GOOD MUSKIE
I FISH THE NEW RIVER IN VA WHICH IS KNOWN FOR HAVING GOOD NUMBERS OF MUSKIES. I'VE HAD ALL KINDS OF FOLLOWS AND A FEW LITTLE FISH, BUT NOTHING "RESPECTABLE". WHILE SMALLMOUTH FISHING THE RIVER I ALWAYS KEEP A ROD RIGGED WITH A BIG BAIT JUST IN CASE I SEE A MUSKIE. WHILE FIGHTING A DECENT SIZED SMALLMOUTH I DRIFTED OVER A LOG AND SPOOKED A MUSKIE OUT INTO OPEN WATER. ON THE SECOND CAST I'D EVER MADE WITH THIS LURE I HOOKED, CAUGHT, PHOTOGRAPHED, AND SUCCESSFULLY RELEASED MY FIRST GOOD SIZED MUSKIE, A 36+ INCHER. EVEN AFTER BEING SPOOKED, THE ACTION OF THE SUPER SHAD RAP WAS ENOUGH TO GET THE FISH TO BITE.
