All Shallow Raiders produce action with a straight retrieve or troll and can also be used in a jerkbait style. This lure can be used all season long with great results.

All Shallow Raiders produce action with a straight retrieve or troll, but can also be worked in a jerkbait style fashion with great results when fish are hanging tight to cover. To keep the lure shallower over high weeds, work the Shallow Raider with short jerks and longer pauses. For more lateral, side-to-side action perform the jerk motion with some slack in your line as you jerk the rod top. Also, allow slack during the pause. Slack line
accentuates the side to side action. If you want the lure to travel deeper, lengthen the jerk distance and
reduce the pause time.


Casting: The maximum running depth of the Shallow Raider varies depending upon the diameter of the line you use and the length of your cast or troll. Heavyweight lines and short casts will make the lure run very shallow. Thinner gauge lines and longer casts, will make the Shallow Raider run much deeper.


Trolling: Shallow Raiders perform best at trolling speeds of 1 to 3 mph. The length of line from rod tip to lure determines how deep it will run. Also, run a thicker gauge line if you want the lure to run ultra shallow, but a thin diameter line for more running depth.
