X-rap shallow shad

15 posts in this topic

Darn walleye insider. Gets me all excited and now I have to wait for it to come out. Casting cranks in shallow with these will never be the same. Anybody know when they might come out? I didn't have time to finish reading the article. Also darn you TO stupid shallow walleye bite. grin

They will be just another tool in the shed, I don't think any lure is ever going to take over the shallow walleye fishing scene, they are way to moody....

Check out the x-rap shad colors rr there a lot of good ones for that mud bowl you like to fish grin I think it will be a really nice tool to have in the shed being all plastic and such.

It looks just like the X-Rap Shad but has the shallow bill. Check out Rapala's HSOforum.

I've only ever needed 4 colors the way it is, but maybe it's time to expand...

They also have a new style lip on these to give it more of an erratic action trolling and casting. Definitely something to try out.

Anybody know what Normark is stating as to the deep range on this lure? Is it like 1 - 3 feet or???

I would guess similar to the normal x-rap, 3-5ft, but in that shallow of water, just getting the lure close is all it takes.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
