The Shallow Shad Rap is ideal for fishing skinny water. Cast it out, let it sit until the ripples fade away, then begin a slow, enticing retrieve. It is equally effective when twitching, casting or slow trolling.

How to Fish
Use the Shallow Shad Rap to imitate high profile baitfish. The smaller sizes are highly effective in rivers for different trout species. The 9 cm model also attracts larger predators.
Troll the Shallow Shad Rap slowly on a flat line with no additional weight over weed beds and shallow shoals to catch fish that you couldn’t get to with deeper running lures. When trolling also looks for birds flocking and diving into the water; most likely they are attacking schools of baitfish, chased to the surface by predators. Trolling shallow running lures in the close vicinity of this kind of action can produce nice fish and make your day.
