Why Use Topwater Prop Baits as Search Lures for Bass

Prop baits like the Rapala X-Rap Prop are considered a great choice for targeting bass on isolated cover, but overlooked for covering water and finding fish. This is a big oversight according to Brandon Palaniuk, how often relies on the minnow profile lure for working large flats and banks alike. The power is in their versatility; you have a lure that looks like a minnow, casts a country mile, calls fish in, and can be worked subtly or aggressively, fast or slow.
