Fishing lure company Rapala is releasing a brand new fishing game to the market Oct. 24.
The crankbaits struck again earlier this week at Lake Shawnee, including one of the biggest fish I’ve ever seen in person.
With fall finally starting to settle in across northeast Kansas, now is the perfect time to bust out the crankbaits in pursuit of bass and other panfish.
But when I headed up to Lake Shawnee on a dreary, cool Tuesday night, I couldn’t have dreamed the night that I would have fishing my little 2 1/8-inch Rapala Square 3 rattling crankbait from the bank.
