How to Fish
The beauty of topwater lures is that they are so visual, which gives you as the angler plenty of immediate feedback on the action of the lure.
The Rapala X-Rap Pop is a truly versatile topwater popper; it can pop, spurt, walk and swim. Four actions from one lure!
To pop the X-Rap Pop, lower your rod tip and give the lure a short strike; this should create a popping sound with little splash. To spurt the X-Rap Pop, raise your rod tip slightly higher and give a slower and longer pull of the rod to the side; you will notice that the lure sprays a large amount of water in a forward direction – very effective for raising fish to the surface.
Walking the X-Rap Pop is done through the same method as walking a traditional stick bait, like the X-Rap Walk; repeatedly twitch the lure ensuring that you throw slack line back to the X-Rap Pop in between movements. This method should send the X-Rap Pop walking from side-to-side.
Finally, the X-Rap Pop has a very enticing sub-surface swimming action which can be activated by winding the lure in at a fast pace, pulling the cup face underwater.
You never forget the first time you threw an X-Rap… the slow-rolling flash on a steady retrieve; the way a hard snap or twitch sends it into action. An action so unique it spawned a whole new category – the Slashbait.
Let’s face it; the X-Rap finish can’t be beat! Just the right color patterns, all with internal holographic foils, 3D holographic eyes, internal textured scales and gills. Each X-Rap verifies the utmost in lure design.
Many X-Raps are built for Xtreme casting, with their specially designed internal long-cast system that sends the lure flying off into the distance, landing with pinpoint accuracy and kicking straight into that world class Slashbait swimming action.
Growing to include a vast number of lure families for both freshwater and saltwater applications, there is an X-Rap for any fishing excursion.
