Like the original Clackin’ Rap®, the Clackin’ Minnow features a single stainless steel ball that transmits a loud cadence rattle that fish not only hear but feel as it produces vibrations through the water. The Clackin’ Minnow combines characteristics from three tried-and-true Rapala lures: the Clackin’ Rap, X-Rap® and Flat Rap®. Those actions, combined with Rapala’s classic wounded-minnow action, give the Clackin’ Minnow its aggressive, hard-flashing action that induces strike-after-strike.
Shaped just like a minnow and designed for long casting, the Clackin’ Minnow upon retrieve darts from side-to-side with a twitching or jerking action, or anglers can simply apply a steady retrieve and let the lure do the work.
The Clackin’ Minnow is available in 11cm.
