Mike Iaconelli Custom Ink Shad Rap


8′ x 8′  fine art giclee print of Michael Iaconelli’s Custom Ink Shad Raps.  A giclee print is a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.


The Mike Iaconelli Custom Ink Shad Rap is a lure that’s part of a collection Iaconelli designed called “Custom Ink”.  He created this line of lures with Rapala. To me, each one is really a beautiful little piece of art.  Great colors.  Gorgeous design. This was my very first painting I did in oil and I will never forget the experience.

When I set out to paint this Lure Series, my goal was to make art affordable to a wide range of people.  And I also wanted the average angler to feel comfortable buying art.  So I wanted to do art about things they love.

About Mike Iaconelli

Mike Iaconelli is one of a kind.  He grew up in Philly and has never been a “typical fisherman.”  I love him to pieces.  He has a ginormous heart and hot temper.  He’s sometimes a walking contradiction, but he is never, ever boring.  And he has great tattoos.

His signature phrase is Never Give Up.

He’s a favorite of young anglers, and I’ve seen him stand in the rain to sign autographs until every kid got to talk to him.  In the dark. You gotta love that about him.

About the Mike Iaconelli Custom Ink Shad Rap

8″ x 8″  Fine Art Giclee Print of an original oil painting by Angie Thompson. Printed on high-quality fine art paper with archival Canon inks, I have signed it in white ink.  I think of it as my own “custom ink.”

The print and quote are framed together with a double window so the mat is acid-free. As a result it won’t yellow or age. The quote is entered below the print. The framed version also includes a quote from Ike about the Custom Ink Shad Rap.

“I’m addicted to crankbaits. I can’t get enough of them; they are all over my boat and my truck; in storage bins and boxes.  New ones, old ones, factory finished and custom painted models; I love cranks. Making these baits in my Ike’s Custom Ink custom colors was a great experience.  Every tattoo tells a story. These baits are no different and are individual works of art to me.”
