Fitted with VMC hooks and hardware, these baits are tournament-ready right out of the package. Available in standard Rapala colors or Ikes Custom Ink Colors, there is a color for every situation.

This is the newest addition to Rapalas popular jerkbait lineup. Featuring a secondary lip at the rear of the bait, this jerkbait is unmatched when it comes to action. Like the name suggests, this bait can be ripped, then it will stop itself on a dime. This is indicative of what dying baitfish do in the water and will help you catch more fish in colder water. Dives 3-4 feet.
This jerkbait by Rapala is designed to have a slow sink on the pause with a nose-down posture. In addition to that, this bait will shimmy as it falls which sets it apart from any other jerkbait on the market. Ideal for cold water, this bait perfectly imitates a shad experiencing cold shock, making it the perfect snack for a bass. Dives 2-4 feet.
The shadow rap shad is based off of Rapalas successful Shadow Rap series. This version features a new profile that looks more like a shad as well as a new action. When paused this bait will slowly lift its head and rise with a tail down position. This bait is better for warmer water than the Shadow Rap. Dives 3-4 feet.
. When you want the Rapala RipStop 1/2oz to execute a pause in your retrieve, it does so, immediately. It's a whole new way of fishing a ripping, slashing jerkbait. Because of the water resistance built into its unique hard boot tail design, the Rip Stop comes to rest quickly, with only a subtle shiver as it reverts to a head-slightly-up position to begin an agonizingly slow rise toward the surface. Molded lip for perfectly tuned precision. Snap, twitch, rip, stop on a dime. Bass, walleyes, and inshore game fish are sure to find the flashy, hard-stopping Rapala RipStop extremely interesting. When they do, the VMC black nickel fine wire hooks are ready to take over.
