The mission was to fish Lake of the Woods from Kenora, Ontario, south to Baudette, Minnesota, covering more than 100 miles of water in five days, using nothing but Rapala’s groundbreaking new lure, the Scatter Rap, and Cabela’s rods, reels, rain gear and premium fishing accessories.
Mission accomplished. The Scatter Rap Challenge is complete.
After the last cast was made and the last fish weighed, the final numbers are in. Three teams comprising six anglers caught 1,019 fish in five days, fishing 100 miles from the top of Lake of the Woods to the bottom.
Mark Fisher’s Gold Team jumped to an early lead, but James Holst and Joel Nelson’s Red and Black teams came storming back. The Red Team ultimately pulled ahead to stake their claim as the Scatter Rap Challenge 2013 champs.
All the updates this past week were just a glimpse into the all the fish-catching action documented on the Scatter Rap Challenge. If you want the full story, tune in to The Scatter Rap Challenge TV special, airing on Fox Sports North over two consecutive Sundays, June 23 and 30, directly after the Twins games.
About the Scatter Rap
The patent-pending Scatter Rap baits come in four classic Rapala balsa body shapes – Crank, Minnow, Shad and CountDown – and in 14 classic and new color patterns. Each features an innovative, curved “Scatter Lip,” which creates the most evasive, erratic, aggressive sweeping action ever seen.
Ideal for multi-species anglers, Scatter Raps can be cast and trolled, making them perfect for multiple fishing applications.
