Rapala® Releases Shad Raps®, DT® Crankbaits In Retreating Craw Colors


The inimitable Rapala® Shad Rap® and the venerable DT® (Dives-To) Series are now available in five new lifelike, seasonally specific retreating-craw patterns: Blaze, Delta, Mossy, Ole Blue and Rusty.

The new craw-color designs are available in two Shad Rap® sizes, 05 and 07, and all DT® Series models (04, 06, 10, 14 and 16). Here’s what the new craw patterns look like:

  • Blaze is mostly orange from tip to tail, with a red-shaded back, yellow claw accents and realistic shell-pattern details throughout.
  • Delta is dark red from tip to tail, with a black-red back and sides, light-red claw highlights and realistic shell-pattern details throughout.
  • Mossy is moss green from tip to tail, with green-yellow claw highlights and realistic shell-pattern details throughout.
  • Ole Blue is blue from tip to tail, with white-blue claw and side highlights and realistic shell-pattern details throughout.
  • Rusty has red claws, a brown body with yellow side highlights and realistic shell-pattern details throughout.

A proven classic, the Shad Rap® is equally effective whether cast or trolled and is designed to be fished from ultra-slow to super-fast speeds with superior results.

Rapala’s DT® Series of crankbaits dive fast to a pre-set depth and stay in the strike zone longer than any than other crankbait on the market. They combine carefully placed internal weights, a tapered fuselage and a thin tail to create the ultimate crankbait action.

Both the Shad Rap® and DT® Series baits are built from balsa wood, creating a swimming action unmatched by other crankbaits in the marketplace.
