Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow
Featuring Rapala’s classic balsa minnow profile, the Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow perfectly imitates a baitfish fleeing from attack, triggering the instincts engrained in the DNA of predator fish. The addition of Rapala’s new scatter rap lip allows the Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow to produce the erratic, hunting action usually generated from deflections. All you have to do is vary your retrieve speed and the Scatter Rap Minnow scatters out to the side like a real baitfish being chased. Offered in a multitude of fish catching colors and equipped with two sticky sharp VMC black nickel hooks, the Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow is a threat to bass anytime it gets near water. Non-rattling.

Comments: This Lure is a fish magnet! It is best used as a trolling bait. I use it mainly FLATLINE trolling for springtime Lake trout and Landlocked Salmon (also caught a Lake trout off a down rigger at 90ft on my first attempt).The fish love it! During the past two years since I began using the scatter rap, it has out performed other lures about 8 to 1. My first Scatter rap pulled in 4 Large lakers before a 26"er tore the Hookwire from the belly of the lure... (Note: recently 2 other lures have suffered the same fate), the wire held at the snap swivel and all three fish were netted. This design flaw may be costly, but the lure is worth replacing. I will write to Rapala and suggest they beef up the belly with something stronger then balsa wood. TRY IT!!

Comments: Awesome lure! Despite the disadvantages of its light weight I am still able to make it work. Caught many different species including largemouths walleyes and white bass. Highly recommend in Purpledescent and silver. Couldn't expect more from Rapala! Pick some up

Comments: This is a great concept, terrible practice. In order to achieve that evasive swimming action you have to reel at a high speed. Most important, this is the worse casting lure on the market. The bill makes it almost impossible to cast in all conditions. I have tried throwing it on different lines, finding no luck. Bypass this purchase and stick to the original floater.

Comments: It does have that erratic swimming action to it. Just put it in the tackle box on those windy days because it will not cast well. Don't expect to cast a mile like the lures with weight transfers.

Comments: This isn't a review, but, it is a complaint about this lure. For it's size, it is very light, making it very difficult for me to cast it on my Shimano Caenan. I truly wish Rapala would make this lure in a larger size, possibly 16 or 18.
