5. Rapala Super Shadow Rap
This is an award-winning bait from the masters at Rapala and stands out in our best pike lures 2019 list.
Twitch it gently for on-the-spot action, or rip it hard to turn it into the mouth of a big fish. Either way opportunistic predators can’t deny the Super Shadow Rap as it kicks hard to the side, then slowly fades away into the depths like a dying fish. Its tall body perfectly mimics the silhouette of a big baitfish.
Running Depth: 1-1.4 m

Big spinnerbaits are a must in your tackle box when lure fishing for pike, so make room for Savage Gear’s Da’Bush. A worthy entry in our best pike lures 2019 list.
