Recommended by fresh and saltwater anglers, the Rapala Deep Tail Dancer is sure to put enormous predatory fish in your boat! Troll this deep-diving crankbait at any speed, and it will swim with an undeniable tail action and Rapala's signature wounded minnow attraction. Built with a balsa wood construction and VMC black nickel treble hooks, the Deep Tail Dancer allows for quick-piercing sharpness and enough strength to withstand fierce battles. Featuring an enlarged, extreme diving lip, the lure plummets down to 30 feet and swims with fewer snags.

Loyal customer Dex says the Deep Tail Dancer is his go-to lure when he's trolling the reef and has caught a variety of species from barracuda to emperors and trevally. Other fish that love biting this lure include walleye, lake trout, northern pike, and bass. Hand-tuned and tank-tested, The Rapala Deep Tail Dancer runs true right out of the box and is ready for action!

I have not used the new UV colors yet. I started using the Tail Dancers last year, they dive, run true and have caught fish looking faorward to running the UV's.

Captures big Brook Trout In lakes Go Figure!!!

by IanLJones -

This is an outstanding truly deep-diving lure - it goes deeper than you would expect but doesn't seem to snag up so much. Recently had great success trolling this lure in a northern Brook Trout lake - it gets down deep crossing the thermocline and into the summer trout zone (greater than 25') in Canadian lakes. I suspect its balsa (?) construction helps retain its superb wobbling action at its running depth. The monster brookies ate it. I think it would also work real good for Lake Trout in a similar setting - next summer I'll forget the wire line and try this. My preferred colour is Silver Flash. Rumour has it that it can break at the attachment point of the lip to the body but I have not had this problem.

Great catch.

by Barry

This is one of the hottest baits out there. When fishing by myself it is hard to keep 3 rods in the water trolling for walleye!

They Catch

by Oklahoma

I typically use these for saugeye and they do catch. Clown Flash, Orange Tiger UV and Bleeding Pearl in the 20 and 30 foot models work well for me. Believe it or not I have actually caught a few blue catfish on these as well while trolling.
