The Rapala X-Rap is the dream lure of the 21st century. It is where technical innovation meets Rapala fishing smarts to create a lure like nothing that has hit the water before.
Its premium finish includes prominent scales and lateral line on the fuselage to capture and flash light like a beacon. This Rapala slashbait cuts, darts and slashes its way through the water. Intended for trout and panfish, with an internal long-cast system built in, fishing the X-Rap XR08 will get any angler's adrenaline pumping.
These are suspending baits, whose natural buoyancy suspends the lure during pauses in the retrieve. Additional features of these baits include the following:

I bought this lure XR-08 in the brown trout colour specifically to target large trout in the dams in NSW Australia. The reason for this was at times these large trout chased small gudgen fish about the size of the lure and the gudgen have a brown top and white belly. The action of the lure and depth it runs when slowly retrieved from the shore along the drop off and weed beds was ideal. The lure on it's first use caught a 600mm brown trout and has performed well since on these large fish.
The X-Rap lures have become my standard fare for kayak trolling nearshore for Spanish and King Mackerel here in Florida. I use them in varying sizes depending on the size of baitfish, and I almost always use the "Ghost" pattern and a wire leader to avoid losing these great lures to sharp teeth!
After 30 min trolling with my kayak i got a small Trout and within a hour i also got an Artic Char. Nice colors and action
