A Storm is brewing....

The Storm Gomoku Keiryo is probably Rapala Southeast Asia's worst kept secret. Photos of the PE04.1-1 variant of the Gomoku Erito have emerged on the web way way before it's launch, and not to mention the many raves it got after its debut in Australia before Christmas. Looks like micro jigging fever has finally caught on! So when's the official release in Southeast Asia? 

Check out shops end January 2014. These are short-butt versions of the Keiryo, making it much more comfortable to flick and wrist-jig with.

Good news for centrifugal braking baitcaster fans! Looks like the upcoming 'red hot' Rapala reel will have centrifugal braking instead of the usual *yawn* magnetic brake cast control system!

Here's a preview of what's hitting stores in the coming weeks... it's a heavy duty X-Rap-like 10cm lure with 6X strong VMC hooks and built to withstand some serious bashing from serious fish. So is it an X-Rap? Not quite...

A Rapala Reel in 2014?

We've received countless enquires about that mysterious 'red baitcaster' used alongside the Storm Mojo baitcasting rod in the Storm Mojo advertisement

The good news is that the mysterious 'Rapala Reel' will be unveiled coming in the first quarter of 2014! Apparently it features a 'rigid drive train' support system for more efficient gear meshing, energy transfer and power. 

Stay tuned for more info.

Scatter Rap.... Do They Work?

Man! It sure is a long time since we updated this blog! But you bet we're gonna post more juicy news and catch reports here in the days and weeks to come. 

For starters (or re-starters!) we've put the Rapala Scatter Rap series of lures through their paces since their arrival to Southeast Asia. Scatter Rap Countdown, Scatter Rap Crank, Scatter Rap Shad and Scatter Rap Minnow. Do they work on our local species? 

Photos by Fred, D1 & Da Fisho.  

No Rainbow Trout in the tropics - Scatter Rap Countdown

I was sure it was a Rainbow Trout! - Scatter Rap Countdown

Pesky little Toman were attracted too!

Overly enthusiastic!

Da Fisho, our all terrain man displays a Temensis with Scatter Rap Countdown

And there's the Scatter Rap Crank.

Scatter Rap Shad again!

Crankin' crankin'

Scatter Rap Shad in Gold Alburnus for a more natural bait presentation 

The Temmys lined up one after another for a bite...

And another...

... and another!

How about another colour? This time it's the Fire Minnow to show its worth

... and it doesn't disappoint!

What about the Scatter Rap Minnows?

Oh yea! They work too!

Even the smaller ones were fooled by the scatter zig zag action.

So good you could gulp one down!

... well, almost!

Temensis: "I should have guessed that evasive baitfish was a fake!" 

The classic Fire Tiger draws them in from a mile away!

And when the water's clear, the natural colours work wonders

Scatter Rap Shad

Scatter Rap Countdown ALB - Almost Live-Bait ;)

Fred mighty happy with one caught on the Mardi Gras colour! A reason to celebrate!

Then a nice one comes along to take the Scatter Rap Shad 

Contrasty colours like Fire Tiger are a must have in the Scatter Rap stable

And of course, the never-failing ol' faithful classic Perch colour! Nice one Yu Hock!
