Rapala X-Rap Shad
I have the hot head color. The action is pretty good. The body feels pretty durable. I used it on my last trip without luck, I will be trying it again hopefully with better luck. It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

The best crankbait
The x-rap shads always seem to be the lures getting hit when trolling multiple types of cranks.. one of the best lures on the market!

This is the best crank bait I have ever used. When I first purchased this, I went fishing in a park down the road from my house. Whiten the first couple of cast I was catching pickerel followed by a 6pound bass and then a huge bowfin. The bowfin took a hunk out of it when I was getting him in, but honestly it made this lure one of a kind. I removed it from my line after unhooking the mud fish thinking it was ruined but on my next fishing trip on lake Marion that was not producing I decided I'd put ol faithful on for another round and although damaged and swimming slightly distraught I started catching fish immediately, and from every species first I nailed a 7pound bass followed by multiple catfish and not small ones either, I landed one cat over 30pounds on this thing. Finally losing it to a huge catfish weighing id estimate over 50pounds. This thing took a beating and kept delivering if my line wouldn't have snapped I'm sure I would still be using it today. I recommend everyone have both this and the shallow models in there tackle box because they really do work in all parks of lake Marion.
