I have used the Xraps alot for Snook during the winter season when they start migrating up rivers and streams with great results. I really like the larger sizes as well during that time of year Snooks are feeding heavily. The lures are very durable to and come with premium saltwater hooks. Favorite colors: blue sardine and olive green. I hoped they would make a chartruese color for this lure but they do make a hot pink whick you can substitude for chartruese and works equally well when you need a bright colored lure for snook.

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.
