The Clackin' Rap is a lipless crankbait that features Rapala's Signature Clackin' Cadence Rattle. It also includes a lot of other enhancements over the classic Rattlin' Rapala.


This lure is built well and is very durable. It has an excellent VMC SureSet hook on the belly and a VMC Black Nickel tail hook.


The Clackin' Rap is available in some great colors with lots of flash. They have a highly reflective finish with realistic scales and 3D holographic eyes. I would like to see some colors in a solid matte finish as well. The action looks awesome on a jigging retrieve, a roll and reel retrieve, stop and go and on a straight back retrieve.


On my first outing I had many hits from salmon at night, but unfortunately missed them all. However, this was not the lures fault. This is an amazing multi-species lure and is very versatile in the different ways you can use it. A lot of anglers like to jig them, but I find them very effective when keeping the lure just above a weedline with a constant retrieve.


This is an original bait that has a much more polished look than the classic Rattlin' Rapala. It also has a sound like no other lipless style bait on the market thanks to the Clackin' Cadence Rattle. It is definitely worth the price.
