New Shad rap

6 posts in this topic

I was in Gander yesterday and picked up a #5 shadrap it was called walleye? I had never seen that color patteren before, is it a new one? Anybody have any experience with it? Also does anybody know where I can get some quality glow paint(I have not been impressed with Ganders paint)? An interesting article in Infisherman talked about small dabs of glow on the eyes off some crankbaits for night fishing? Anybody ever try this, does it work? Seems like it would be a good attractor on dark nights?

Lots of game playing. Some of my favorite Rapalas and Shad Raps are not now in production, while other new ones hit the shelves often. I realize companies need to make marketing moves to enhance the ol' bottom line, but it annoys me when they create an artificial scarcity only to later "re-issue" a proven color pattern at a higher price. For now I'm restricting my Rapala purchases to bargain bins in discount stores.

I picked up a #7 shallow diver in walleye at Gander a little over a month ago. I've caught a few walleyes on it(Although Baby Bass has been the hot color for me the past two months). Looks to be a decent pattern. I haven't seen the walleye pattern in any other store or catologue yet.

Sorry to change the subject a bit but has any body tried the jointed or the shadrap RS? I've been using the shadrap RS and the jointed shadrap. I think the jointed shadraps are great. I catch just as many if not more walleye on them than the traditional shadrap. I've been using the crawdad and bass patterns and the crawdad(red underside) by far outfishes the bass pattern. If you havn't tried them give them a shot. The RS on the other hand has not performed that well for me.

I'm interested in the Walleye pattern. It's sounds great. I do agree with you, Borch-- Baby Bass is a hot color. I've had good luck trolling it for 'eyes and casting it for smallies.

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
