Went out today between 12:15 and 1:30 in Channahon and got my first 2 smallies of the year. I had been hearing alot about the Rapala X-rap so I bought one to try. We threw every type of lure in our bags and the X-rap was the only lure to see action. 1st. was a dink but smallie nonethe less and the second was a fat 15" and if I guessed the wieght I would say a solid 2 3/4 to 3.5#er. It was just nice getting out and being able to catch a couple made it even sweeter.

Congrats on the smallies. I was out on some ponds today with the x-rap, it does produce. I was letting it sit for like 25 seconds between twitches.

Yes id does. I would cast it out. Let it drift in current. Then two twitches. Both fish were caught on the second twitch.
