Rated 5 out of 5 by jbroach1985 Will catch any fish you want.... other than mullet
Works well for trout, redfish, flounder, snook, etc.... pretty much all inshore species.

This is a fantastic lure, extensively tested and with excellent results for peacock buss at Amazon rivers like Teles Pires, Sao Benedito and Iriri. Where other baits did not work, this pumping X-RAP slashbait got amazing results. My friends also were convinced of the results and bought a good number of same lures.
We use those ones bait made for salt water. We got a feeling that the hooks are more brilliant and better attracts the fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 Consistent Striped Bass Lure
A friend tied on one of the smallest Bunker XRAP Lures for me and I have been hooked ever since. These work much better for me than the older balsa wood ones. The new ones seem to be slightly heavier, cast better, and show more action when retreived. I like to feel the rod tip "throbbing" as I retreive the lure so I know it is working and apparently the striped bass here in the Chesapeake Bay like that as well. I haven't tried any of the other colors or sizes and may not get right on that as long as I am catching fish with this one.

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.
