Northland Fishing Tackle’s renowned Rippin’ Shad packs more eye appeal than ever, thanks to an enhanced color palette that includes eight brand-new fish-catching patterns designed to trigger more panfish, pike, walleyes and trout.
“The Rippin’ Shad is a proven producer for vertical jigging through the ice, as well as casting and jigging in open-water situations,” says Northland Product Manager and well-traveled angling expert Chip Leer. “The addition of eight enhanced colors, including a selection of glows and metallics, makes this great lure even better.”
Featuring a flat head for an aggressive, tight-wiggling action, the Rippin’ Shad’s forage-mimicking body also houses a raucous rattle chamber that floods the underwater world with fish-attracting sounds and vibrations.
“Internal weighting helps the lure keep its balance during jig strokes and retrieves,” Leer adds. “It’s deadly for calling walleyes and other predators within striking distance under the ice, but the Rippin’ Shad also excels when you’re casting to largemouth bass and other gamefish spring through fall.”
The Rippin’ Shad features two razor-sharp treble hooks and a perfectly positioned dorsal line tie, allowing the bait to assume a lifelike horizontal position when at rest.
It’s available in three sizes from 1/8- to 5/8-ounce. “The 1/8-ounce version is great for aggressive perch, crappies and super-sized bluegills,” says Leer. “The mid-size 3/8-ounce option is ideal for walleyes and pike, while the 5/8-ounce heavyweight is my choice for trophy walleyes, pike and lake trout.”
The Rippin’ Shad comes in six glow-in-the-dark color patterns and a pair of flashy metallic finishes. Suggested retail for all sizes and colors is $4.99.
