Rapala® X-Rap® Magnum® Series Trolling Lures
I troll mostly ballyhoo rigs but I always like to drag 1 Rapala on a wire line. These things are great. They really do dive deep. I once had to put on the snorkel gear and dive one off the bottom. It was all of 30ft!
Good for Wahoo out deep and Kingfish and Grouper in the shallows. ...even at night!
Last w/e caught (and released) a Marlin that hit the firetiger.
BE CAREFUL reeling it in. There's so much load on it that it fires out of the water like a rocket full of hooks.

I've had this problem with the older magnums with metal dive foil. Never with an X-rap. It may need tuning. There are loads of great explanations online but too lengthy to copy here. Google: tuning repala magnum I also always run it on trolling wire, which cuts through the water better and gets the lure to dive deeper
I frequently visit a pier that hangs over the Atlantic Ocean, its about 30-40 feet above the water; can this lure be used for that pier? If not, is crank baiting in general possible from a pier that high above the water?
Crankbaiting is not easy or very effective from atop a high pier because of the high angle of your line the lure is only allowed to dive to a very minimum and mostly will just flounder on top. I would highly recommend jigs or sinking swimmers from a pier. Good luck!
