Rapala X-Rap Twitchin' Mullet vs. X-Rap Twitchin' Minnow

Two solid lures by Rapala are the X-Rap Twitchin’ Mullet and the X-Rap Twitchin’ Minnow.

These are subsurface lures with single inline hooks that are made for inshore fishing.

A lot of people think that these lures are the same and that they can be used interchangeably.

While they are similar, there are some distinct differences between the X-Rap Twitchin’ Mullet and the X-Rap Twitchin’ Minnow.

After using these lures for a while, I wanted to give you my honest review and show you the similarities and differences between the two lures.

In this article, I review both the X-Rap Twitchin’ Mullet and the X-Rap Twitchin’ Minnow and show you the best ways to use them.

I also provide an underwater demo of each lure and tell you which one I like better in the video review in the article.

Thanks, Tony. Am visiting from GA and have a charter next Monday. Looking forward to trying these tactics.

I’ve had excellent success with both lures. The Twitchin mullet as some have said should have been named a shad, pilchard, threadfin, or something other than mullet, because the profile is not that of a mullet, and you’re right…the Minnow should have been called the mullet. In the summer, the twitchin mullet works well on snook that are keying in on pilchards (white bait) In the fall, the Minnow works better on both reds and snook because mullet have more tendency to school up in larger schools just before the spawn. Reds and snook will hammer finger mullet during the fall because it offers more protein to put fat on for the winter. True, the front hook on the Mullet wraps around the front of the bait if you twitch it too hard. Bottom line, both work well. One other observation…you are throwing these baits in fresh water. they react differently in salt water and varying degrees of salinity due to the difference in specific gravity of the levels of salinity. Good vids and review.

Although I have both I have not used them that much but to me to imitate the mullet the twitching minnow to me looks more like a mullet mullet are not short and fat like the twitching mullet is but more slim and long like the twitching minnow duplicates and while they both are good lures I will probably use the twitching minnow when mullet are more prevalent and the twitching mullet when bunker and shad are like the winter and very early spring before may when the water begins to get warm and closer to the 70s when the spring mullet run starts anyways thanks for the review and as usual all you do for saltstrong😁

Hey Tony…..your lure evaluations / comparisons are really helpful. I would suggest you include the weights of the lures in your write ups (they’re more important than the lengths to me). Also, the I really like the rapala subwalk that Luke reviewed a short time ago. I fish in super skinny water and now use the subwalk as well as the twitchn’ mullet.
