I Caught Another One!
by Clayton C.
Last October (October 22nd, 2020) I caught my PB Top 3 largest Largemouth Bass on the Perch Rapala Super Shad. I was casting along the Lily Pads about 10-16 feet out from shore doing a hard jerk and pause retrieve when I hooked on a nice 30 inch plus Northern Pike. -BUT! IT WASN’T A PIKE! IT WAS A HUGE LARGEMOUTH BASS! 22 inches in length… and I didn’t have a scale (Dang). If I had to make a good guess he felt between 8-10lbs. That Bass was HUGE! It took up the length of my stove.
It wasn’t the best fight because I horsed him in, but it wasn’t the worst fight either. It was just easy horsing him in with my larger setup. I wasn’t expecting to get that Bass I was just casting hoping for something big; either a Northern Pike, Musky, or Bass. Bass it was. It was fun.

I forgot to write a review! But last year (October 22nd, 2020) I caught a HUGE Largemouth Bass on the Perch Rapala Super Shad! That Bass was 22inches long; almost the FULL length of my stove! I didn’t have a scale to weigh it though (I know that sucks) I caught about 21 feet from shore casting along the Lilly Pads on a hard jerk and pause retrieve. These things catch trophies man!
Fish USA let us upload photos. I would love to show you all.
The Rapala Super Shad (Classic)
by Clayton C.
And now I am glad to say that I own almost ALL of the colors that Rapala has to offer with the Rapala Super Shad! It truly is a Great and Very Versatile Lure to help you catch BIG Fish, and be successful out on the water. This lure is made by a Legendary company that has originated many other lures we have today; it started from this Legendary company. And this Great All Time Lure should be in your tackle box. And if you have this lure already; it is Good to have this lure in a couple other colors. With THIS lure... it is worth it. Type this lure into YouTube and see the BIG Fish that are caught with this Great Lure from a Legendary company!
Rapala Super Shad Review
by Clayton C.
*Sigh! I originally couldn’t post my REAL FULL Review of this lure. *I feel like they are taking my voice away because I had a VERY Good and exciting fishing experience with this lure and I am unable to fully share it with you all.
This Lure is a very versatile fishing lure. You can fish it on the surface so you don’t snag underwater on anything. Especially Rivers. You can fish it fast (Burn Retrieve), you can fish it a slow retrieve, you can fish it at different depths as It is a perfect size lure for catching trophy fish! And on the pause... it floats to the top. This lure has a VERY Strong vibrating wobble. BIG Fish will sense that and BITE IT! And with the almost PERFECT color selection it makes the Hunt that much more exciting!
I have had HUGE Smallmouth Bass lurch straight up outta the water and snatch this lure (Bluegill color) out on the Mississippi River. I caught a 30-32 inch Northern Pike on the Mississippi River with this lure (Bluegill color).
Every musky angler needs one.

This is one of my highest confidence lures in my box for river musky. I have it in every color pattern offered stock to match all kinds of forage. You can work it slow, work it fast, troll it, twitch it, straight retrieve it, dive and rise it, anything. It will catch fish. The downside is that these lures are some of the weakest baits I've used in terms of paint, lips, and stock hooks. You cannot hit these things off bridges/rocks/etc. You will be retrieving a mangled bait. They must not glue the lips in place properly as I've found it's always a clean separation when I lose a lip - no 'break', but the lip just pops right off cleanly (nothing super glue can't fix). The hooks are very light, and will absolutely bend if you horse in an esox. I always replace with one size up (4/0 VMC black nickel) or 2x's/3x's in the same 3/0 size. The paint is also very weak, and will chip/scar after one bite. Not a big deal, but I wish Rapala would beef these things up just a wee bit more.
