We are a fishing family. My husband and I were both raised fishing, and we are raising our boys the same way. When out shopping, Liam will often ask to look at fishing lures before toys. So to say we all love fishing is an understatement. Rapala® reached out to Kelly’s Thoughts on Things and asked if we wanted to try out some of their lures. That was a big YES PLEASE!
Rapala® sent us four different lures to test out. It was like early Christmas for the men in this house. To be honest, I was excited too, as I love to fish just as much as they do. We fish often at the creek by our home, and some private ponds in the area. We are also headed to lake in a few weeks, so these lures will get a great work out.
I’d say Liam’s favorite lure that they sent is the Terminator® Walking Frog. He immediately snatched it out of the box and said, “DAD! Let’s go fishing now!” The Walking Frog is designed to catch more fish. It’s weight and shaped are designed to not interfere with the hooks on impact. The soft body of the frog will compress easily to the bite, for increased hook ups. The Walking Frog also sheds water in between casts, eliminating a water-logged lure. We were nailing large mouth bass left and right at the ponds, with the Terminator® Walking Frog. With eight colors to choose from, you won’t want just one.
Liam’s second favorite lure, and my hubby’s go to of the four, is the Shadow Rap® Shad. The shad is a slow rising jerkbait. Designed to mimic a shad in trouble, the fixed weight system is designed to rise, head up, like a slowly dying shad. With many colors to choose from, this is an awesome lure!
Next up is Rapala’s Shadow Rap®. This sleek lure is another jerkbait. This lure is designed to mimic a minnow in trouble. Rapala® has perfected the natural minnow action in this new jerkbait. This lure triggers fish in three ways: on the kick, on a slow fading fall and on the snap back to life. Again, the bass were loving this lure! This one comes in 24 colors, and my hubby already wants more!
Last, but not least is the Storm® Arashi®. With triple rotated hook hangers, powerful glide, and low roll action, this lure is awesome. Multiple rattles mimic schooling bait fish, and are perfectly placed for long cast. Like the others, there are many styles to choose from.
So whether you love to fish, or you love someone whom does, Rapala® has what you need. Everything from lures, to line, to knives, to clothing and more, Rapala® is a one stop fishing and outdoor stop! You can also find them on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
