Rapala CountDown Minnows

Rapala CountDown Minnows

Description

The Rapala CountDown Minnows sink at a rate of 1 foot per second, allowing you to easily and repeatedly fish the targeted depth. Whether the fish are suspended, at the weed tops or holding on bottom structure, the Rapala CountDown Minnows can get you to them consistently. When cast or trolled this weighted balsa lure swims with Rapala's signature slow-rolling action. Running true even at high speeds, the rolling, swimming action combined with the small size is just the ticket for when fish aren't aggressively feeding. Slow-sinking on the pause, these lures can be more than a fish can handle, coaxing ferocious strikes.

The Rapala CountDown Minnows are outfitted with VMC black nickel hooks, and each lure is hand-tuned and tank-tested to swim perfectly right out of the box.

Features of the Rapala CountDown Minnows include:

  • Balsa Construction
  • Ideal for Casting
  • Custom Swimming Action
  • Controlled Depth Sinking Rate
  • Large Size Range
  • VMC Black Nickel Hooks
  • Hand Tuned & Tank Tested

# 7 performs and sinks as described. # 5 sinks noticeably faster than the #7 The small #3 immediately goes nose down and drops like a lead sinker. My experience shows the smaller lures are not made and/or designed well. Perhaps their size makes it more difficult to balance the rate of sinking and point of balance?
Pros: Larger lures perform well
Cons: Smaller lure do not sink as described
Best Uses: none
works as stated
