[nggallery id=889]I have had the chance to test the new Rapala Scatter Rap series throughout the spring and summer for a variety of fish including large & smallmouth bass, lake trout and walleye. Whether it’s the Scatter Rap Crank, Minnow, Shad, or Countdown, they all have a very tantalizing action that combines the original swimming-minnow action with an erratic lure position moving form let to right at the same time. I have found with all 4-types of Scatter Raps that a moderate speed works best (don’t reel to fast). This spring shooting a TV show on Lake Erie, NY (which has an all-year open season for bass fishing), I was amazed that I could catch both large and smallmouth bass, as well as hooking silver rainbows up to 6 lb., fishing the same areas with the same lure.
For optimum performance try fishing the Rapala Scatter Rap with the Sufix 832, 10 or 20 lb. test braid and Sufix Fluorocarbon leader. If you are looking for a versatilecrankbait that produces big fish, at least give the Rapala Scatter Rap Crank a try. You will be impressed with it’s action and fish catching performance!
