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.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
