Trolling fast and deep, casting inshore flats for tarpon or looking for your next 50-incher, there's an X-Rap just for you. All are rigged with durable componentry to withstand the inevitable smashes from all species of fish and the general rigors of the saltwater environment. Each is built to the exacting standards set years ago by Lauri himself.
The Rapala lures I purchased are mainly for saltwater Australian Salmon a
var. herring. Average 4-5pounds. Fight well often jumping out of the
I'm an American living in Mauritius and I use the lures
to troll slowly behind the kayak catching a variety of fish.... Some big 10lb to 20
lb and small too. I change the hooks to a stronger single hook.
Mate generally my idea for this particular lure I have purchased from you will be
spinning from the ocean rocks on Australia's east coast.
I'm hoping we will be able to do business on a bigger order in the future.
i like all the xrap 12 for rock fishing there good if there's to many
little fish around, bigger fish only hit them, also medium retrieve the best, colour
is your preference hope that helps
In this case, I will use the rapala saltwater x rap 12 lures for a Dorado fishing (Salminus Maxillosus). It's
the bigest predator in our rivers. They hunt between rocks or underwater sticks, so
you need a very good precission to cast the lure. When de lure falls in the hotspot,
the fish inmediately goes for it, and you have to pull off them from the rocks or
sticks very very quickly to avoid line break (consider fishes between 8 and 15 lbs
and the water flow.... it's not easy)
I live in Perth Western Australia and have found the x rap sxr-14 dynamite on
spanish mackerel. We fish a place called Steep Point which is about 8 hours drive
north. Check you tube. We use these lures because we fish from the shore from an
elevated cliff( about 10 meters up!) and these lures cast well but more importantly
we can retrieve them at high speed with our stella reels as they don't swim too deep
and become impossible to wind in. The shallow bib keeps them under the water even
though they are being pulled in from high up which makes them better than stickbaits
etc as they just race across the surface. We also use Spanyid raider slices as they
cast a mile. We let these sink to the bottom and wind in" flat out" so they come in
and up the water column fast. we also get lots of hits as they "flutter" to the
bottom. We are targeting Spanish Mackerel but catch lots of shark mackerel,trevally
Tailor, kingfish and several tuna species. Sailfish and
marlin have also been here using these tecniques, just not by me, yet!
I will use them chasing tailor (Bluefish) here in
Byron Bay, NSW AUS from rocks with my son who sometimes catch over 25
in a couple of hours.
I buy this lures to catch sea bass, on the beach ; when the wind is blowing in
Mediterrannéa . 12 cm for 22g and a large bavette are a good option to catch fish in
white water .
