Rapala Ultra Light Shad

5 Reviews
SKU: F11178


Rapala Ultra Light Shad lures are the smallest, headstrong shad baits Rapala makes. Small in size, but not in features, like a precision internal weight and a classic shad profile, the Ultra Light Shad succeeds where others fail. Running true even at high speeds, the rolling, swimming action combined with the small size is just the ticket when fish aren't aggressively feeding.

Slow-sinking on the pause, these Rapala Ultra Light Shad lures can be more than a fish can handle, coaxing ferocious strikes. The perfect choice for small streams, rivers or into submerged rocks, a no brainer for trout and panfish. The shad profile combined with external scales, 3D holographic eyes and phenomenal finishes allows this mighty mini to be a valuable tool in a wide variety of conditions. Hand-tuned and tank-tested, the Ultra Light Shad swims with legendary Rapala action right out of the box.

Great Trout Bait!

by azgooze -

I bought several of these to be used as a late season bait for big fall trout. These have worked well to hook and land many of the holdover rainbows many up to 18"-20". I have caught a few spawning bookies but not many large ones. These baits have the correct size hooks to do the job so I lose very few strikes. These baits in the right colors are dynamite.

The overall lure is great, when trolling it tends to run to deep. you must troll it slowly

So we went out to eagle lake in OK del city today and we were catching nothing on worms so i decided to use the ultra light shad Chrome. Pretty good lure on my 3rd cast out i get a bite and guess what. A carp about 13-14 inches and weighed in at 5 pounds. Also good for catching bass. I caught two of them weighing 5 pounds each. Could have been the same fish.

My favorite ultralite lure ever.

by Dean217 -

This is the best ultralight lure I've found for casting. I use it with an ultralight setup with 4 lb. test. This lure just kills for bluegills, crappies, and white bass. I also catch a lot of largemouth bass on it as well as the occasional walleye and yellow perch. The action is fantastic. The lure is fairly castable for its small size. It sinks slowly when it hits the water. The hooks are super sharp and seem to give a really good hookset ratio. I fish the same lake, mostly. These lures are so good off of the dock that I don't really have to use the boat much anymore. I can limit on crappies off the dock. If you cast and retrieve, you can get a feel for working the lures at the right depth over weeds. I have at least one in every color. For darker water or fishing in low light conditions, the fluorescent colors definitely do best - Firetiger and Hot Steel are my go-to's. For bright sunlight, I like Purpledescent. I love these lures.
