Rapala Shadow Rap

At day’s end, a shadow doesn’t die, it slowly fades away. So it is with Rapala’s new suspending jerkbaits, the Shadow Rap and Shadow Rap Deep. Combining a horizontal struggle with a vertical fade, the lure perfectly mimics a minnow’s final, quivering moments before its end of days — triggering unforgettable strikes as predator fish move in for an easy meal. The Rapala Shadow Rap is a jerkbait lure featuring an entirely new action that drives cold water bass crazy.

“The Shadow Rap does something I’ve never seen another bait do — I call it the ‘death quiver,’” said three-time Bassmaster Classic qualifier and 2014 Forrest Wood Cup Champion Randall Tharp. “When you pause it on slack line, it shimmies from side to side as it’s suspending there. So even when it’s sitting still, it looks just barely alive.”

Tharp and fellow Rapala® pros Michael Iaconelli, Brandon Palaniuk, Ott DeFoe and Jacob Wheeler will all be armed with Shadow Raps later this month at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic on South Carolina’s Lake Hartwell. The baits will be unveiled there to the public for the first time, but the Rapala pros have had them for months. And they are impressed. Big time.

While most jerkbaits follow a forward trajectory with each twitch of the rod tip, the Shadow Rap’s action stands out. “Not only will it dart side to side, but with a certain jerk, you can make it spin around almost 180 degrees,” Tharp explained. “But it also moves vertically too — it will dive down, then move up.” So a Shadow Rap will trigger bites on its initial kick and its snap back to life, as well as on its slow-fading fall.

“It’s perfect — it’s exactly what I want,” said Iaconelli, the 2003 Classic Champ. “I want that bait to have these little tiny movements — little tiny flashes and rolls. Then, on the pause, I want it to be just barely lurking out — just barely going down."

Featuring a minnow body profile, flat sides and metallic finish with textured scales, the Shadow Rap is designed to target bass and other gamefish in two-to-four feet of water. The Shadow Rap models come armed with three No. 6 VMC Black Nickel Round Bend Hooks and are available in 14 color patterns: Albino Shiner, Blue Back Herring, Blue Ghost, Bone, Bud, Carbon, Clown, Ghost, Ghost Shiner, Moss Back Shiner, Olive Green, Purpledescent, Silver and Yellow Perch. The Rapala Shadow Rap measures 4 3/8 inches and weighs 7/16 of an ounce.

“The Shadow Rap’s going to be a player for me — both the regular Shadow Rap and the Shadow Rap Deep,” Iaconelli said. “These lures are great at imitating what those fish are feeding on.”
