Rapala's adrenaline-pumping Saltwater X-Rap Lures have had a huge impact on the way anglers target almost every kind of saltwater species. Built to withstand the onslaught of saltwater giants, the extreme X-Rap slashbaits produce an aggressive, hard-cutting, darting action that drives every fish to strike. Integrated long casting system partners with the X-Rap's irresistible rattle to make them even more tempting. Complete with VMC® Perma Steel Hooks. Run from 3' to 8'.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cjk11 awesome action
the slash-bait action is awesome especially if you fish it fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkieMark Best all round lure
I have used Xrap 10 silver Rapalas for many years now in the Caribbean. Almost all fish of all sizes like to strike at them. Nowardays I attach stronger split rings and stronger size 2 hooks in order to land bigger fish such as Wahoo and large tuna. I seem to get far fewer bites on larger size Rapalas. I recommend the Xrap 10 to everyone as long as you make sure to stregthen them in order to land bigger fish.

Started using them last year. There were days here on the Jersey beaches when they were the only thing producing stripers.

If you are a "match the hatch" kind of guy like I am I would go between three patterns.
(1) black back, silver: I really like the contrast, which makes it pretty visible in stained water. I also like the red coloration under the chin that looks like an injured baitfish and I believe this elicits strikes.
(2) Olive Green: Snook love greenies, enough said
(3) Spotted Minnow: I have had great luck with this pattern in the ocean, on the beaches, and in inlets. I find this pattern looks like small spotted trout, a bit like a sea run herring, and enough like a mackerel to do the job. I have not caught snook on this pattern but I have caught stripers, sea trout, jacks, and cudas.
I will be surf fishing on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica in March and am looking for suggestions or tips on lures etc. My experience in fishing is jigging or trolling the lakes of Ontario, so this will be my first time doing this.
