    I like the X-raps for casting also, but still use the old standby clown husky most of the time. In the Sag. river system, alot of the eyes have small perch in them in fall and spring, and another great lure is the firetiger thunderstick jr. Gotta love them jr's. Another must have in the box also for me.

    The X-Rap is one hell of a jerk bait for smallmouths!
     
  4. I Fish the St. Joe river from shore. In years past I've always used HJ's with alright success. To end this off about two weeks ago I picked up 3 brand new Xraps (used xraps before for inland lake fishing). Got to say the HJ's are gonna do some time sitting in the box :evil:. Steelhead and at least 2, 18" walleye so far. Another bait that compares to the Xrap is the Lucky Craft pointers, Landed one 14" eye on my LC so far. The LC seems a bit louder then the rap. As winter nears I am sure the odds will increase, At the start I was averaging 2-3 eyes a night. Know due to unstable conditions your lucky to get one.

    Xrap great bait for cast and retrieve.

    They don't troll too bad either......

  6. Havnt had the chance to troll them. But my guess is the Deep Xrap would be killer trolled for suspended Pike and eyes right now.

    For walleyes, I've caught a lot of walleyes on the golf HJ and the Susp Excaliber Bomber in the Hot Tiger/Bengal tiger colors. The aroura/black slim pointer has been pretty good for walleyes and smallies on Hardy. The ghost minnow pointer is a good LM bait for me.

    Ya gotta have both, but I always begin with the hj. If that's not doin work I'll then switch to the xrap. That pearl/orange one has been very good to me so far
