I was surfing around on Rapala USA’s FaceBook page and saw that someone likes #9 Shallow Shad Raps so well he got a tattoo of one on his arm:


If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I love Rapala crankbaits.  The #9 Shallow Shad Rap is a very good choice, I have caught a ton of fish on that bait.

However, if I was going to get a tattoo of that bait, it would have to be the chrome and blue, not the bluegill pattern.

A color that Rapala has discontinued–Aaaarrrgggghhhhhhhh!  (Are you listening, Rapala?)

Don’t worry, Mom.  I am not getting any of them.

Have a great weekend everyone, and once again, GBR!
