fisher joe:: Are silver plated lures discontinued? Thanks Jan 9, 2014 18:36:10 GMT -4
srodane: chioudj Jan 11, 2014 20:55:46 GMT -4
bacon: EVERYONE, please note, this shoutbox area is often overlooked by many. please feel free to post a topic in the forum. Jan 18, 2014 15:38:23 GMT -4
bacon: Fisherjoe as far as the SSR-8 SH. the size 8 shallow shad rap is discontinued, and the SH color is shiner, or sometimes called roach, especially in europe. probably silver plated. silver plated colors are not necessarily discontinued. Jan 18, 2014 15:43:33 GMT -4
bacon: rapala no longer uses silver to plate lures, its a chrome electoplate now i think. Minnow varion is just minnow, the varion is another language (french i think), like gold dore is just gold, dore means gold. Jan 18, 2014 15:48:03 GMT -4
fisher joe:: Enter your reply here...Thank you bacon for responding back & i talked to a person at rapala said did away with silver plating,use electroplate. Not real great with computer need help from wife to get into forum Thanks again Jan 22, 2014 17:42:26 GMT -4

fisher joe:: jaycee69 I retrieve 4 to 6 or7 cranks pause a couple secounds& twich. I also use a rip it motion like any other lure it is up to how the fish are feeding or not. Jan 25, 2014 22:34:55 GMT -4
