Rapala X-Rap Subwalk

13 posts in this topic

I just bought a few of these new Rapala X-Rap Subwalk's to use when I get home in July off a site on the net for a great price. Has anyone used these? What are your feelings on them, do the works?

No one out there FM land has used these new Rapala's at all?

Used them last weekend on a couple of lakes in the Longville, MN area and had fairly good success on the smallmouths. A couple of real nice ones too. In fact, I out fished my boat partner 3 to 1 using the subwalk exclusively, while he stuck with a jig and plastic worm.

They do look great in water...can't wait to try them on Mille Lacs this summer.

Rapala X-Raps work great. I don't know that I have seen a subwalk. What is the difference?

I think it has "walk the dog" action underwater.

Yes, it has a walk the dog action and runs about 1 to 2 feet under the surface.

So I take it you would recommend buying them?

I've only used them that one time, but based off of the results from that day, I definetly plan on using them again.

it took awhile for me to find one, but am very happy with the results on a variety of fish species, have caught everything from walleyes and northerns to nice bass on them. my favorite color so far has been the pink with the white belly.

I just bought an X-Rap today, not a subwalk, but am looking forward to using it. A friend says he limits out on walleyes using his.

I'm liking mine, I got the gold/black subwalk. I havn't had much success yet for bass *still bedding & not roaming yet* but have landed many nice pike with it. Very nice looking under the water, just takes some practice getting the cadence for walking the dog correct.

Just picked one up and can't wait to use it! The color is amazing - Moss Black Shiner....

I don't know how they are supposed to be different from the Twitchin' Rap...anyone?

    • Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a dead rescue. Every friggin' year...it ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's. 
    • academic research.  Maybe some day, but for now I would say walleye in stores and restaurants comes from netting in Canada.   Or is zander from Europe... 
    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
