Rapala Shadow Rap Deep - SDRSD09 - 3-1/2" 3/8oz. 5'-6' Depth


The Shadow Rap® Deep combines a horizontal struggle with a vertical fade that perfectly mimics a minnow in trouble in the 5-6 foot depth range. Rapala has perfected the natural minnow action in this new jerkbait that triggers fish in three ways: on the kick, on a slow fading fall and on the snap back to life. Most jerk baits continue on a forward plane with each jerk. Not the Shadow Rap® Deep. It kicks almost 180 degrees right then left, so it can be fished nearly in place with very little forward travel, keeping the flickering fade right in a fish's strike zone.

The Dying Minnow Action of the Shadow Rap® Series compliments Rapala’s already extensive offering of hard baits that have the legendary, original Wounded Minnow Action and the Escaping Minnow Action featured in the Shadow Rap® series. These are the three stages when a baitfish is at its most vulnerable – and most interesting target for a predator.

The Dying Minnow Action is simple: on a twitch the lure makes a final dart off to the side, turns back to look at its adversary and with a dying quiver settles to a head down dive to death.

Unlike other jerkbaits, the Shadow Rap® kicks almost 180 degrees when twitched and given slack line so it can be fished nearly in place with very little forward travel. This keeps the flickering fade of the Shadow Rap® right in the strike zone for a long time.
