the new rapala scatter rap is prob the most reactionary bait ive ever thrown its amazing uqinc bil gives it the winding action that the bas love and just cant stand to bite what does everyone else think ?

 

Huh?

I think it's one of the most over-hyped baits. It still catches fish but no where is it changing the game of crankbaiting like they claimed.

i just really love the scatter rap cant anybody respect it yes im new but so far im not liking this whole talkin to other anglers thing .

:cry4:

 

I like the scatter rap but it is definitely a differnet crankbait and cannot be used like the majority of hte normal styles.  I have found it works well over flats and points without a ton of vegetation as the weedless properties just aren't as good.  I have a couple of them and they work well and i will continue to throw them.  I do think they will be a good river bait and if this rain ever stops i may have a chance to validate my theory.

I mostly throw them on transition areas like flyfisher is suggesting. A little grass here and there where it opens up to a more open piece of water. Just my experience with it anyway. Caught some nice fish on it

Mine roll way too much on me.  Even tweaking it doesn't keep it from going back to the roll.  I have to fish it so slow in order to keep it from rolling that it looks lame to me.  Nothing like the action I am seeing hyped by Rapala.  Very disappointed thus far.

 

Throwing it on spinning gear and 8lb FC.

I've done well with mine and never had a problem with it rolling or being difficult to cast like others I've heard complaining about them. It is a wood bait though so maybe I just got lucky and got a good one. I know the smallmouth about jerk the rod out of my hand when they hit it.

I have fished one in the black and silver since they came out but yet have to catch a fish on one.  This is surprising to me since the orginal Shad Rap still catches fish for me.  As others have said I think it rolls to much also and this may be the reason I have yet to hang a fish on one.

If you're having trouble casting it, use a couple suspend strips or dots. Adds a little weight to help with casting, helps it get down deeper, seems to help with the rolling, but does not stop it from floating like it is supposed to.

 

Been throwing it more often lately and it has been producing bites when I wasn't catching them on any other moving baits. Try to shy away from the usual (Black/silver) and try things like Caribbean Shad or Helsinki Shad.

 

I originally bought mine on clearance, but considering how they've been getting hit, I will pay regular price to replace them when I loose them.
