Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow

Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow

 

Dan Quinn of Hudson, Wisconsin, is the Field Promotions Coordinator for Rapala, and he says that Rapala's staff of professional anglers, which includes Jacob Wheeler of Indianapolis, Indiana, Brandon Palanuik of Hayden, Idaho, and Ott DeFoe of Knoxville, Tennessee, have been field testing Rapala's new Scatter Rap baits. And as these professional anglers have been wielding these baits and inveigling an array of black bass on them, they have been telling other anglers about the manifold virtues of the four baits in this series: Scatter Rap Minnow, Scatter Rap Crank, Scatter Rap Shad and Scatter RapCountDown.

The Scatter Rap Minnow exhibits many of the properties of the classic balsa-body-shape of the original Rapala. But it is endowed with what folks at Rapala describe as a uniquely designed curved lip, which they call a "scatter lip." This lip causes the Scatter Rap Minnow to move with an evasive swimming action, mimicking a spooked and panicked baitfish. It is also described as possessing an erratic and aggressive sweeping action. In other words, as an  angler varies the speed of their retrieves, the Scatter Rap Minnow will "scatter out to the side like a real baitfish being chased."

It is a floating bait that is 4 3/8 inches long, weighs 3/16 of an ounce, and it will dive as deep as eight feet.


It is available in 16 colors and sports VMC black nickel hooks. The suggested retail price is $8.99.


In blogs to come, we will feature the Scatter Rap Crank, Scatter Rap Shad and Scatter Count Down. And we will update these blogs whenever anglers on the Finesse News Network file a report about their endeavors with these four baits.  We have a growing number of versatile Midwest finesse anglers who occasionally utilize small crankbaits and minnow baits.
