Default What's you favorite Rapala?

I am really into rapalas right now. My favorite is a rainbow colored X-Rap. I love it. All time favorite has to be the original floater in a size 9.

I haven't tried the new minnow rap yet, that looks good. I am trying out a size 4 "dives to 4 feet" perch rapala out at the Q tonight, I am curious to see if it preforms or the bass...

So, what's your favorite Rapala?

(if this has been done to death, I apologize in advance).

Husky Jerks are my most used Rap, if there was a reason to only pick one though it would be an original black/silver in a size 7. That pattern imitates more baitfish than any other, and being a floater you can fish it at any depth (with weights of course).

I read you recently discovered Rapalas in the rivers for Browns! That is by far my favorite way to catch Browns. In fact so much most of the time I spend fishing rivers is targeted for Browns.

I've done really well with a Perch Jointed Rap for Pike, but I like them all! *

For a search bait I would have to say a rattlin rap but my overall favorite would probably be a brown trout floating rapala size 9 or 11. I've caught too many trout to speak of in rivers with that rapala.
