Big Lures for the Biggest Encounters

There’s few fishing experiences as exciting as the sound of a screaming drag disrupting the silence around you; or the visual explosion of a top water strike as a hungry predator unexpectedly crashes your popper as it comes to rest on the calm surface. It’s in this brief moment of mayhem where you need your tackle to be top notch, especially the bait attached to the end of your line.

Lures bearing the Rapala X-Rap Magnum name have been built and tested to withstand the harshest and most brutal encounters that a sporting angler would expect to experience in any waters, be it a 50kg giant trevally in Oman, or a 200kg Bluefin tuna anywhere in the world; you can trust that the construction and fish holding power of these lures will be there with you until the end.

The well-respected X-Rap Magnum trolling lures dive deep at up to 40ft for big pelagic species cruising the deep blue ocean in search of their next meal. There’s a model suited to all classes of sports trolling, with the smaller 10ft and 15ft variants perfect for light game anglers, and the larger/deeper 20ft, 30ft and 40ft models ideally suited to big game hunters fishing 15kg – 37kg tackle.

Rapala’s 2018 release of the X-Rap Magnum Xplode took Magnum strength from the depths to the surface with this over engineered cup-faced popper. Like all X-Rap Magnum lures, the Xplode is fully wired through and fitted with only the biggest and baddest VMC hooks. This easy-to-use popper is so reliable that well-known GT anglers worldwide have already added one to their arsenal.

Not only for saltwater anglers, X-Rap Magnum lures have accounted for their fair share of big catfish across Europe and giant Murray Cod in Australia.

No matter where you are in the world, if your target species is big, tough and doesn’t give in easily, the X-Rap Magnum series could be the best choice for your next fishing adventure.

Keep fishing,
Chris
