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...

    • New to downrigging - 1 or 2 downriggers?

      New to downrigging here. My buddy took me out and loved it! I fish where depths change quickly; 60-130 feet. I was thinking of getting just one electric downrigger and stacking 2 rods or would you guys suggest 2 downriggers and I run to both of them to adjust the depths as they change? This sounds like a lot of work lol. Suggestions?

    • Help Picking a new spinning reel

      I have never really owned a high quality reel in my life.  The best one I own is a Shimano Symetre for my ice rod.   I have 2 of those Abu Specialist combos that go on sale a CT for 70% off a few times a year.   One is beat up pretty bad, specially since my 6 year olds have been learning to cast with it the last few years.    All of the being said, I have a birthday in October, and have decided to ask the family for no presents, just cash this year.  A good chunk of that mone

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots

    • Got a new truck today

      I bought a new F150 Lariat last year and absolutely loved the truck but there was a serious issue with the 5 litre engine so Ford installed another engine recently and that one had issues too. I told them I was done with the 5 litre and didn't want the truck back. I wanted to replace the truck and get one with the 3.5 EcoBoost instead and I've never seen a dealership do so much to make a customer happy. There's already a great "Employee Discount" thing going on which knocks a pile of $$$$ o
