How to Fish
To fish the Super Shad Rap over very shallow areas or vegetation, keep the rod tip up and retrieve slowly. The lure will roll and wobble whilst slightly breaking the surface, creating a good wake behind it.
On a faster retrieve the Super Shad Rap will dive to about 1.5 meters. It can be fished with a fairly steady retrieve, but also with a sideways sweeping motion, and even with hard jerks.
Slow side sweeps with the rod will create a sliding action with natural stops when the rod is brought back to forward position. Reel in slowly while bringing the rod back to its original position to remove any slack in the line. This will help feel even the most tentative bites and also slows the lure’s rise.
For an aggressive approach use a jerk bait retrieve; pumping the rod up will keep the Super Shad Rap close to the surface and jerking the tip down will let the lure work deeper. The jerking retrieve can help bring out fish from heavy cover, so try it close to heavy cover and thick weed beds.
Carrying on a tradition that started in 1936, the original “wounded minnow” action is what has made Rapala “The world’s most trusted lure.” Premium Balsa gives them their responsive, life-like action, while the craftsmanship and dedication to excellence makes sure that each and every lure swims like the first.
Classic lures embody the same individuality that Lauri Rapala was hand carving from wood those many years ago. With every Classic lure purchased, you really are buying a part of Rapala history.
Before leaving the factory, each is inspected, hand-tuned and tank-tested for the superior quality these lures are known for. That’s why no matter where you go in the world, big fish eat little fish that swim like a Rapala.
