The Rapala Jointed Shad Rap features a wide, swimming jointed action with a loud rhythmic rattle that mimics and exaggerates the action of a wounded baitfish. The quick-diving lip design drops it down to its desired depth where it suspends on the pause, just like the real thing. Lightweight and durable plastic body construction enhances the action, and a variety of vibrant colors make it too much for even the wariest fish to resist. Right out of the box, it swims with perfection due to hand-tuning and tank-testing. VMC black nickel hooks also provide quick, sure penetration.
