The Rapala Jointed Shad Rap has a wide-swimming, jointed action with a loud, rhythmic rattle that mimics and exaggerates the action of a wounded baitfish. Suspending on the pause just like the real thing, it's just too much for even the wariest fish to resist. Lightweight and durable plastic body enhances the action. Swims true right out of the box due to hand-tuning and tank-testing. VMC black nickel hooks for quick, sure penetration.
