Jack Deep Goes Stream Fishing

Jack Rap Deep

I am always fishing the trout stream and usually use the smallest of all small hard baits by Rapala, namely the Ultra Light Series, and they have always caught well. Just this once, I thought to myself, I’d like to catch some fish with the Shadow Rap® Jack Deep, because they are new to the range and I haven’t had the chance to use them yet.

I arranged to meet my brother at our house by the stream to lure some trout. When my brother saw my bait, he smiled and unpacked his tried-and-true spinner.

After a brief exchange of views with him, I knew immediately that this had now become a competition. I only took the Shadow Rap® Jack Deep to the water with me and left the other baits in the car. Before we begun, the needle-sharp trebles had to be exchanged for the super light inline single hooks without barbs by VMC.

At first, I was a bit sad, because my ultralight series from Rapala was not with me. However, after I caught a brown trout on the Shadow Rap® Jack Deep, my confidence in this bait grew.

An ingenious bait that can be cast extremely far, which, of course, brought a huge advantage over my brother, who did not make any long casts with the spinner. In addition, the swimming action is very sexy and energetic, like a crankbait. The lure has a stable running action and maintains a straight line underway. Thanks to its big lip, the Shadow Rap® Jack Deep goes straight into the depths, which can be extremely useful when fishing the deep outer curves of the creek or in the holes.

After the first two trout in quick time, I loaned my brother the Jack Deep for testing. Of course, after this fishing day, I am sure I will never see this bait again because we caught some nice fish, even chub. None of these fish could resist the Shadow Rap® Jack Deep.
