Rapala Clackin’ Crank and Clackin’ Minnow

With the introduction of the Clackin’ Rap, Rapala sent anglers on high with a versatile bait that did it all. This year is no exception with the introduction of the Clackin’ Crank and Clackin’ Minnow.

The Clackin’ Crank comes in two sizes: size 53, which is 2 inches long, weighs 5/16 ounce and has a running depth of 3 feet; and size 74, which is 2 ¾ inches long, weighs 5/8 ounce and has a running depth of 4 feet.

Like the original Clackin’ Rap, the new Clackin’ Crank and Clackin’ Minnow feature 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. Built for long casting, the Clackin’ Crank sports a translucent textured body with internal holographic foil and is available in 16 color patterns.

To hook and hold the big boys, the Clackin’ Crank size 53 displays a number 8 VMC SureSet Treble Hook on the tail and a number 8 VMC Round Bend Treble Hook on the belly, while the Clackin’ Crank 74 features a number 4 VMC SureSet Treble Hook on the tail and a number 4 VMC Round Bend Treble Hook on the belly.

Nicknamed Triple Threat, 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.

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 size 09 and 11. Size 09 is 3-½ inches long, weighs 7/16 ounce, runs at 3-to-4 feet and is equipped with a number 6 VMC SureSet Treble Hook on the tail and a number 5 VMC Round Bend Treble Hook on its belly. Size 11 is 4-3/8 inches long, weighs ¾ ounce, runs at 4-to-5 feet and is strapped with a number 4 VMC SureSet Treble Hook on the tail and a number 4 VMC Round Bend Treble Hook on the belly.

Get ready for a clackin’ good time.
