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.
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. The Shadow Rap 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.
