    I am fishing X-raps here in Mexico and I know guys use them for Tuna at home in B.C. but has anyone had any consistent luck with them for Springs off-shore? Thinking the medium size ones and if so I assume something in pilchard or herring colours OR?

    I’ve had some limited success with them, caught a few.

    I might need to be a bit more patient with them to produce better results but I see no reason why Chinook would not be attracted to them.

    I also have had limited success with Chinooks on them but the albacores love them and so do the Cohos when i troll into the green water from the blue. :)

    Have had limited success, but definitely need more time testing.
    Two ways to try would be using a dummy flasher and then Rapala up above, or using an inline flasher with extra long leader.

    I like using the Scatter Rap Tail Dancer - https://rapala.ca/products/scatter-rap-tail-dancer -
    Very erratic action, runs smoothly at trolling speed, and colours that should work here (Bleak, Clown, Golden Alburnus)
