Big action in a small bait, the new Rapala Ultra Light Shad features a weighted body which enables incredibly far casts for such a small bait. Running true even at high speed, these Ultra Lights are the ideal lure selection for all manner of finesse tournament fishing. With a tight wobbling swimming action & slow-sinking on pause; the Rapala Ultra Light Shads are small only in size, not fishability.
With its tight wobbling action, the Ultra Light Shad is the perfect choice when an aggressive deep water presentation is required.
Fish your UL Shad in a violent manner, ripping it short and sharp from side-to-side with a slow-to-medium paced retrieve. This approach sends the lure darting with increased body flash and additional “wounded baitfish” appeal.
Alternatively, pause and let your lure sink, employing the CountDown method, to reach deeper prey with a steady retrieve.
The Ultra Light Shad also makes a fantastic trolling lure due to its ability to handle high speeds, aggressive movements and fast-flowing water.
