Rated 5 out of 5 by Mangooooo Rapala Flat Rap I live in northern Thailand and fish jungle perch ( ie, Crasop ) 2 or 3 times a week. The Rapala Flat Rap FLR-8 is by far the best lure I have ever used for these perch. I really like the action and relatively shallow depth. The "Clown" is my favorite color for day in and day out success. I am always afraid you will run out since this particular lure is sometimes hard to find in northern Thailand. December 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassmasterkid1999 ONE WORD, AMAZING!!!!!! This lure really comes to life in the water, it's amazing! Bass just can resist the action on this thing. I use it from pre spawn to fall, and it's one of my best lures. One day, I caught seven bass on this in less then two hours, in the middle of a cold front. I just love this lure, definetly get this. One of the best lures out there. I just love to watch ripples come behing my lure, then set the hook, then there's a huge bass on the end of my line. Just amazing! December 10, 2012

Details:Hasn anybody used this lure in salt or brackish water? If yes what were the results?
A:I do use the Rapala Flat Rap FLR 8 in brackish or off color water at times with good results. I believe the unique action of this lure results in it being seen or "felt" by the fish.
A:Salt water & you just twitch it & let it drift or it comes in like a pencil, straight & no life. Its been good for Sea trout in CLEAR water.
Details:What size would you recommend for a threeway rig for walleye?
A:I USE ONLY TWO SIZES FLR9 FLR11 ALLYEAR LONG FL9 MOSTLY IN EARLY SPRING AT THE START OF SPAWN WATER 44 DEGREES FISHED REALLY SLOW ON A THREEWAY RIG WORKS GREAT.
A:I have the best luck with a size 10 for Walleye.

A:How big are your walleye? I have found that my walleye will take any of the sizes.
better than rapala x-rap extreme action slashbait?
Top 10 Contributor
A:about the same. it is a great lure!

A:Not better, just different. On a recent trip the x-rap was better during the middle fo the day when they were tail tugging the dressed trebble hook.
Early and late the flat rap was better.
A:I found that the Flat Rap is good for situations that call for a finesse/quieter
technique. Take your time workin' that Flat Rap and you'll get results. With the X-rap, I have better luck when the fish are more active/less negative mood. Bottom line for me?.....use both and let the fish tell you what they want.
A:It draws bites well, but the hooks are too small. Four out of six largemouths I hooked threw this bait. I've switched to SureSet hooks, which should solve that problem.
Details:Is there a gold shiner color available to order for this model?
Top 50 Contributor
A:yes, item # 38-250-752-02
A:no but u can get a glidin rap in gold shiner
