The Shallowraider is also one of the top shallow baits for Muskie trolling in the world- and here we have the Bigfoot Shallowraider. Joe Bucher knows his stuff and the Shallowraider has been another Muskie mainstay for a long time. An unbelievable Musky lure, that has a tremendous following, its now available at nearly half of what you'd pay in a big box store. They are widely searched for because even though they are such an effective Musky lure, they are not as easy to find as some other Musky lures. Finding them for a good price is generally even more difficult. Here you can buy a full selection of Joe Bucher top baits including the related Topraiders, Shallowraiders and CD Raiders along with other lures of your choice. Joe Lures are THE lure for musky trolling.

    The ShallowRaider® was designed by hall of fame angler Joe Bucher specifically for casting and trolling for big gamefish in a variety of shallow water situations. Any time big muskies, pike or any other big gamefish are cruising over top weed flats, the ShallowRaider® is a prime bait to fish. Stained water lakes with shallow weed lines of 6 feet or less are also great places to fish the ShallowRaider®. Rock reefs that top off in the 6 feet range or less are yet another prime spot for this lure. Rock walls and gravel/rock mix shorelines are yet another prime candidate for both casting and trolling ShallowRaiders.

  • Both the straight model and the jointed version can be simply cast or trolled and worked with nothing more than a simple steady retrieve and be very deadly. Yet, they become even more effective at times when combined with a jerking/pausing motion.  The jointed ShallowRaider® works exceptionally well by combining a simple straight retrieve with an abrupt pause any time it collides with cover. Follow this up with a subsequent quick, forward ripping motion of the bait immediately after the pause. This forward ripping motion (performed by a pulling upwards or sideways on the rod tip) frees any clinging debris on the lure, and often triggers a violent strike from a nearby fish hiding in that cover. This same procedure works equally well when trolling the jointed ShallowRaider® along rock walls, points and weedlines.
  • All of the straight model ShallowRaiders® produce action with a straight retrieve or troll, but can also be worked in a jerkbait style fashion with great results when fish are hanging tight to cover. To keep the lure shallower over high weeds, work the straight model ShallowRaider® with short jerks and longer pauses. For more lateral, side-to-side action perform the jerk motion with some slack in your line, and allow slack during the pause. If you want the lure to travel deeper, lengthen the jerk distance and reduce the pause time.
  • The maximum running depth of the ShallowRaider® will vary depending upon the diameter of line you use and the length of your cast or troll. Heavyweight lines and short casts are better for shallow waters. Thinner gauge lines and longer casts, or more line out on a troll, will make the ShallowRaider® run much deeper.

Extended Information

Joe Bucher is changing the look of his packaging along with a few other changes. To get the new look into the big box stores, they are clearing out everything with the old packaging. The lure will remain a mainstay in the Muskie world, but deals like this run out when we run out of product. We'll take all of the Joe Bucher tackle we can find.
