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.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
