Rapala Jointed Shad Rap
Best Rapala Crankbait!
Great crankbait for big sluggish bass. The lure has enough action built into it that even with a slow presentation quality fish can be fooled into biting. Even caught my largest bluegill of the year with it. The pictures attached were caught on the 7/16oz in silver shad color.

Deadly on Walleye / Pike
I have used this lure with the line tied directly to with a Rapala knot. The lure has an awesome swimming action and the actions gets even better with the Rapala knot. A great, all around, lure.

Some say too pricey, but consider the quality and catchability! All the money you spend is for the lure, not for endorsement money for the "fishing celebrity" of the month who "blesses" the lure. The quality is fantastic and it catches fish, isnt that worth paying for? I have the best luck with the crawdad patterns, baby bass, and shad is my favorite. I catch both largemouths and stripers on these. Use the crawdads in the fall when the fish are looking for high protein to fatten up for the winter. I have some lures I paid 3 dollars for that were overpriced because they dont catch fish. I pay the asking price for these because they work!

Well, I am only fifteen years old (and i know you probably don't care how old i am) and before fishing this lure, i had honestly only tied on a crankbait maybe three times in my life before this year, preferring the lifelike action of soft plasctics, and my cousin took me and my dad out perch fishing on lake michigan by the oak creek powerplant (for those of you who know where that is). He had given one of these to me in the 2" shad color, and told me to tie it on. i was skeptical, but i did so anyways,and i got my limit within 20 minutes! the pictures to the right explain Why i have spent nearly $65 on hardbaits/crankbaits in the last month! i'm rapala got me started!!!!
