Rapala X-Rap: Which color to imitate Alewife?

Recommended Posts

As the title says, I fish a lot of water that has Alewives and one that supposedly has Ciscos.  What color X-Rap (and also Husky Jerk) to mimic these species?  Thanks for the help and any responses.  Best wishes on the water!

All of the above.  Also, Helsinki Shad/Sexy Shad/Chartreuse sexy Shad makes a great color scheme for mimicking alewives, especially if there's a little color to the water.

Thank you!  I was also looking at the slick color for the x-rap.  For the husky jerk, I will look into those colors.  Does Rapala make a sexy shad version or is that the Helsinki Shad?  Thanks!
