Saw new Rapala Super Shadow Rap

Recommended Posts

At Gagnons in Oshawa. They are musky big imo, but they are way more realistic than most musky lures. For my fishing they would be better in a slightly smaller size. They were $18-19 each and they only had a few.

They are  Euro lures. Colour names  like Roach, live Roach and Mirror Carp says Europe for sure. You would not believe what a disgusting slimeball a Roach actually is. The goo literally drips off them. European Bream and Tench are also unpleasant animals. They do get big pike over there but I don't think they get them in the big numbers we do here. In the video on Rapala.ca it looks like they are a sinker not a floater or suspender. They do look nice for that type of huge lure

I almost ordered a bunch of those Super Shadow Raps, but had to restrain myself. They look really nice. The X-Rap Peto looks sweet too.

I ordered one on eBay way back in the spring (in Artistic Burbot) and fished it the only time I've fished muskies this year back in June. It has a pretty wicked action to it when worked and it casts really well. Ended up having a bass or something maybe 3 times the size of the lure take a swing at it, and then ended up missing a fish on it a little later. I've been getting the urge to toss it lately come to think of it haha

Picked one up at Natural Sports today - they are $20.  Small and heavy, should cast a country mile.  Apparently you can rip it or jerk it with a slow sinking action... I'll report back if I get any takers...
