ICAST 2016 – Rapala V-Rap® Skitter V

Category : HARD BAITS, iCast, TOP WATER



MINNETONKA, Minn. (July 1, 2016) — An exclusive, innovative V-Rap® belly design radically alters the action of the newest Rapala® topwater lure, the Skitter V. Quick rod snaps create drastic direction changes, followed by soft, long glides on slack line, constantly enticing topwater strikes.

“The belly acts a lot like a keel on a boat,” says Captain Rick Murphy, host of “Sportsman’s Adventures” and the “Chevy Florida Insider Fishing Report.” “The bait cuts really hard to the left and right, making the walking-the-dog action a lot easier.”

Like Rapala’s freshwater Skitter Walk® lures, Murphy explains, the Skitter V is loaded with a single-ball bearing that emits a unique, fish-attracting “clickety-clack” noise.

Designed for both freshwater and inshore gamefish species, the Skitter V measures 4 inches, weighs 1/2 ounces and comes armed with two No. 4 VMC® Black Nickel Round Bend Hooks. It’s available in 10 color patterns, including: Bone Chartreuse, Chrome, Gold, Gold Chrome, Glass Ghost, Gold Olive, Hot Olive, Hot Pink, Red Ghost and Silver.

Suggested retail price: $8.99
