Rapala X-Rap SubWalk Lures
Shallow Water Killer!
I use this frequently in clear water during the fall and pre-spawn. It has a great design and external appearance, but the action is a bit weak with the feather tail hook. Replace it with an Ultra Point or an Owner Stinger 41 to greatly improve the walk-the-dog action. It doesn't always move the way I want it to but it catches fish!

Great striper lure!
On the first cast I caught a beautiful 10lb striped bass! A great lure for any fishing situation!

Missleading advertising, still... Great Lure!!
I bought this after seeing a rapala promotial video... in that video the rapala folks claimed this lure will have a walking the dog action just beneath the surface... well, thats just not true... i tried many kinds of retrieves and i just can't make this thing go side to side in the same way a zara spook or a skitter walk would...
But, still this thing CATCHES FISH!!! i have caught everything from LargeMouth Bass to inshore species such as mangrove jacks, Snook and Pacific Sierra... what i found it works best is to fish it slowly... with short jerks... jerk, pause, jerk pause... in that pause the bait suspends and that is the moment of the strike! Hope this helps... The colors i will recomend would be CLOWN, SILVER and BLUE SARDINE (for saltwater) good luck!!
