For many anglers, keeping the lure in the strike zone can be quite a challenge simply because retrieving a bait pulls it from the strike zone. Rapala have solved this simple physics imperative by creating a bait that will virtually never run in a straight line when jerked. The Rapala Shadow Rap Lures is a minnow profile jerk bait that reacts to the jerk by moving left, right or even 180 degrees, but never simply forward unless, of course, scull dragged to return to the angler.
It is this action that keeps the Rapala Shadow Rap Lure in the strike zone for longer. On the pause, the lure floats slowly down with a subtle flutter that mimics a dying bait. In fact, the jerking and pausing action imparted on a Shadow Rap will see it doing an amazing impersonation of a dying fish. A quick jerk will bring it to life looking erratic and confused. The pause, will see it drop indicating the last of life is passing from the fish. In other words, a perfect target, easy meal for a predator.
These lures will be great on a host of species from Mangrove Jack, to the ever so fussy Impoundment Barra, to extra big Flathead. The model listed here is the deep diving model that will run at about 2 and a half meters in the water column. At 13 grams it is brilliant for casting on light braid and represents a decent meal at 110mm.
