Thank you to Rapala for providing me with product free of charge, in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

This year, Father’s Day falls on my birthday. My husband and I have decided to do things that day that we both enjoy. Hopefully, the weather will be nice that day. I would like to start the day with a family breakfast, pack a picnic lunch and then all go fishing for the afternoon. If fishing goes well, we will come home and have a delicious fresh fish dinner.

I plan to surprise my husband by hiding gift wrapped fishing lures in his tackle box. I have four Rapala fishing lures- Arashi Top Walker 11, Terminator Walking Frog, Rapala  Shadow Rap and Rapala Shadow Rap Shad.

Top Walker 11 provides a long glide and powerful wake. It has three rotating hook hangers and is designed to have a low roll so the hooks remain below the bait. The Arashi Top Walker 11 delivers a cadence sound to mimic baitfish.

Walking Frog has a weighted tail to increase casting distance. Its design provides stability and maximum hook efficiency. The Walking Frog works well in heavy cover and open water.

Shadow Rap is a slow-sinking jerk bait lure. It mimics a minnow’s movements. The Shadow Rap design allows it to keep it’s head down while kicking left and right in almost 180 degrees.

Shadow Rap Shad is a slow-rising jerk bait lure. It was designed to have a horizontal struggle and slow vertical rise to mimic a shad. The Shadow Rap Shad has a flashy profile to attract big fish.

I am confident, my husband is going to love these fishing lures….almost as much as he will love a day of fishing with his family.

Does your dad enjoy fishing? Surprise him on Father’s Day with new Rapala fishing lures.

    My son loves to go fishing and is going on a fishing trip to Canada next month. I’m going to tell him about these lures. They look like lures that he would like to use.

    My husband has been wanting to take my son fishing for a while now, so I’ll have him check these out!

    My uncle taught me how to fish and I learned how to skin the fish I caught, from my grandma. Great memories of fishing but I know the guys in my family still like to fish and this would make a nice gift for them.

    I bought my husband several lures over our 41 years of marriage and last Christmas he told me he fishes for catfish and you don;t use lures.

    These are very nice and any fisherman would love to have them. My father once owned a Bait Shop. I remember looking at all the lures. They were all so shiny. My father said they really do attract the fish.

    How fun! I love fishing as well, but we haven’t done it in years! We definitely plan on taking our 3 littles over the Summer though (along with camping for the first time) and I can’t wait! 🙂 These fishing lures sound awesome and like they would be very effective. Thank you so much for sharing!
