The Rapala X-Rap Shad 8cm hard-bodied lure, with its running depth of 1.8 to 4.5 metres, would be an ideal suspending lure to have in your kit. Target bass, trout, salmon, flathead, bream, tailor and whiting in estuaries or freshwater dams, lakes, rivers or streams.
It comes complete with premium internal textured finishes, an internal rattle system, an internal long-casting mechanism, premium VMC black nickel treble hooks, 3D eyes, and a dressed rear treble hook, making this lure irresistible to any passing fish.
Its 14-gram weight make it an excellent casting lure for its size. The next time you are on the water, pick up your 8cm Rapala X-Rap shad and start casting it at snags.
You could also try slow-trolling the lures along the edges of weed beds and drop-offs, as the depth range for such a small lure is excellent.
