  • Jointed body for wide swimming action
  • Rhythmic rattle sends out distressed minnow signal
  • Quick diving lip design
  • Lifelike finishes
  • VMC® Black Nickel Hooks

The rattling, suspending Jointed Shad Rap's "distressed minnow" swimming action has proven that its slower, more pronounced wide-action is "just the ticket" when fish are in a negative or sluggish feeding mood.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 158 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Rapala I've ever fished Early April last year I went fishing at my cottage on Keuka Lake. It was the first trip of the year and the first thing I casted was this Rapala. On my very first cast I caught an 8 lb largemouth! One of the biggest bass I've seen out of that lake in a long time! A few casts later and a 7 lb largemouth swallows the whole lure! Later a 6 lb small mouth and another 5 lb small mouth bit this thing. My friend and I have dubbed this lure "old faithful" because it will always catch the big fish no matter where you are. Since then this lure has caught numerous other bass, pike, pickerel and very large perch. A must have. I have since expanded my collection of this lure to various colors and sizes. Try some out now, you will not be disappointed. January 25, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by great lure So far I am stuck !!! They are one of the best lures I have ever owned April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by They crush it I had the good fortune of fishing a two pond in my apartment complex that had ZERO pressure. I was one of two people fishing. I had great luck with spinner baits landing all sizes of large mouths, crappies and perch. But when I tied this lure on things changed. Only heavy hitters would hit it. I mean they would crush this thing. Especially at night the pigs would come out and just hammer this lure. Bring it back to you with stop/go random run retrieve. Anything but a slow steady return and it will produce. February 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You Cant Go Wrong My Favorite In my Tackle box. Caught bass, smallmouth, walleye, bluegill, white bass, hybrid strippie, catfish, carp/river perch. on all sizes jsr4- jsr7. December 6, 2013

A: 
I use the yellow perch pattern in lakes with perch - so I think you should do a little research based on the lake you are fishing. In general, the minnow patterns like baby bass are usually always good.

Probably depends on the local forage, but I caught several largemouths, between six and nine pounds, on the perch model at Keuka Lake, recently. Keuka, one of the Finger Lakes, has plentiful perch; other patterns may work better elsewhere.

I bought a couple of Rapala lures including the Rapala Jointed Shad Rap. I think that they would be great lures for where I fish but they all have the same problem. When I reel it in it tends to flip onto its back or darts to the left or the right and its not the right action. What can I do to prevent this?

A: 
Most lures, yes even the expensive ones need to be tuned. Start by bending the ring slightly to the opposite way the lure is swimming. This is the small ring embedded in the lure, not the split ring. Do small bends and you should be able to get it running true. Peirce a large Lip!

A: 
More than likely i would think the problem would be the knott that you are using or the line getting tangled on the hook my brother use to have the same problem because of the knott he would use but once we switched it up from a palomar knot to a rapala knot or a double loop knott it has worked really good.

Gently bend the eye (where you attach the line) the opposite way the lure is running. They shouldn't do that right out of the box. They do get out of tune.

I have encountered this problem as well, and my solution was to make sure my cast was straight and not moving to much in the air, and to not reel in to quickly when the lure hits the water. Hope this helps.

A: 
It may be doing that because of the speed you're reeling in. Also, make sure that you're not using a swivel or a leader. Tie the lure directly on to your line and make sure that the knot is on the front of the ring and not on the top. If that doesn't help, try going to Rapala's website and look for more information there. They have a great website, giving you all of the information you need about each and every product they make.

Do you have a spinning reel? Line twist may come into play, try a leader with a swivel on your main line.

A: 
This could be helped with a sticker weight added to the belly of the bait. Darting to the left or right might not be a bad thing, as the added action may entice even more bites. If it really bothers you, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to twist the split ring into a straighter position.

dont buy Rapalas, seriously they all seem to need tuned out of the box. tie your line directly to the lure and you may have to bend the eye to the right or left to get them to run right

A: 
It just depends on your preference. I like jointed when the fish aren't really biting because the action that it has is so life-like. Regular crank-baits are great, too. It is just up to you. I have a few jointed baits in my arsenal, but I have hundreds more single body cranks.

I personally like the jointed lures better only because they have better action that simple one pieced lures. If you have a jointed lure, it is great to give it a little twitch to make it look wounded or hurt I guess you could say. Buy yea, Jointed are my favorite for the action

Depends on water temp and clarity. If crank baits will produce strikes both will work , jointed seems to work better when fish are lazy.
