The Rapala Skitter Walk Topwater Lure Review (Pros, Cons, & Tactics)


The Rapala Skitter Walk topwater is a tried and true lure that’s been catching inshore slams for years!

And it’s one of the best topwaters for easily walking-the-dog.

But there is one costly con to consider before adding this to your arsenal.

So in this video, you’ll learn the pros, one con, and the different sizes available of the Rapala Skitter Walk lure.

Rapala Skitter Walk lures come in size 8 and size 11 (essentially a smaller and a larger bait size profile).

The size 8 is 3-1/8 in and weighs 1/2 oz while the size 11 is just over 4 in and weighs 5/8 oz.

Also, the bead inside creates a different frequency between the two lure sizes.

The rattle has a lower frequency in the size 11 and can draw fish in from further away.

For both sizes, the tapered design helps you punch into the wind when casting.

And the wide belly helps the lure sit flatter on the water.

This allows you to walk the dog much easier than some topwater lures out there.

One glaring con is the cost.

This is a $10 lure and there are more affordable options on the market.

But this is a fantastic lure and worth the cost!

Everyone has a confidence lure and this has been mine for years (it’s my good luck charm).

The Skitterwalk has always been my go-to topwater, for my area. I have tried many others, including the Spook Jr., but the Skitterwalk has always caught the most fish. My largest was a 39.5 inch red last year. I recently have been using the Moonwalker with good results.

Like the way they cast but I still do better with a bone Zara

Nice review Justin!

That Pearl SW08 is one of my go to’s in the spring when the bait fish start to emerge from the back creeks. Something about it the bigger trout love.

I’ve heard that Speckled Trout pattern is fire but I’ve never tried it. I might just have to pick one up.

Awesome video Justin. I switched out all the trebles with the larger inline hooks that you have on the bigger rapaka (shown in video). Will those be ok on the moonwalker? Trying them out Sunday am. Thanks buddy
