Hi to all the salties and the bombay boys...

i have purchased 4 nos xrap15'diving magnums in firetiger , greenmackrel, bluemackrel and dorado variants.

could you guys advise if these are good for barras , mjs in terms of depth...

these are primarily trolling lures as you guys already know... in the light of which do y'all think it's problematic to cast off rocks .. coz they may get snagged due to them being diving lures.

please do enlighten....

thanks....

Hi Steven,

The 15ft deep divers will be excellent lures to troll on shallow reefs.

The dorado & greenmackrel will be lures of choice. But if the water is very clear, I'll be tempted to use the bluemackrel.

The Xrap's are good and you can also troll fast with them.

I wouldn’t spin with them from the rocks.

Hi fishy,

I agree with Santosh. It is not recommended to use those lure in spinning around rocky areas.

But you can use it very well with much of consious. I used Blue mackereal 20' diver in chennai without snagging in the rock. You should slow down completely when you think the lure reaches the rocks. But i havent get any hit with that.

My choice is always popper and one of my friends hooked MJ and groupers in popping. It is still unbelievable for me.

It is not so bad to try for your luck with those lures.
