Introducing the new Rapala Shadow Rap Deep, the minnow that lives in the shadow between life and death. The Shadow Rap combines a horizontal struggle with a vertical fade that perfectly mimics a minnow in trouble. Rapala has perfected the natural minnow action in this new jerkbait that triggers fish 3 ways: on the kick, on a slow fading fall, and on the snap back to life.
Kicking almost 180 degrees right then left, it can be fished nearly in place with very little forward travel, keeping the lure right in a fish's strike zone. Its fixed-weight system acts almost like a baitfish's swim bladder, making the lure sink slowly, like a minnow. Finally, it snaps back to life, triggering a rapid response from even the most negative predators. Perfect for bass and other game fish. Textured scale body and X-Rap style finish. 3 VMC black nickel round-bend hooks. The Shadow Rap Deep runs several feet deeper than the Shadow Rap. HD colors stand out better in darker water.
