rapala shad raps can be deadly on walleyes. Sometimes that's all they will bite on. I like perch, brite green, firetiger colors the best. You need to try different colors. The walleyes are color selective sometimes.
They have a new color out this year. It is walleye color. Looks just like a little walleye. I will have to get that color.

Get yourself some #7 and 8s in Firetiger and some Silver combo and you will catch alot of fish. I counted just for fun the other day and I have 50 of the #7,8,9 and jointed shad raps. Up at Glendo a #7 Firetiger shad rap is all you need to troll with! Big trout like them also!
thanx for the info
I am going to get a few

I just bought one of the new walleye colors. Very life like right down to the glowing eyes. I hope the fish think it is as cool as I do. If it doesn't work I think I will hang it out the mouth of one of my "living room" walleyes ;)

They work great in canada in the pearl white color.
