Rapala Countdown Minnow

The Rapala Countdown Minnow is a slow sinking minnow profile hard bait designed to offer anglers depth versatility and consistency. Anglers can countdown their minnow to certain depths and repeat the same presentation easily and accurately at the optimal depth. Sinking at a consistent rate of one foot per second, the CountDown® allows you to easily target specific depths consistently. Whether the fish are suspended, at the weed tops or holding on bottom structure, the CountDown® can get you to them consistently. Trolled or cast, this weighted balsa lure swims with a slow-rolling Rapala action. Outfitted with VMC® black nickel hooks, each lure is hand-tuned and tank-tested to swim perfectly right out of the box. We offer the Countdown Minnow in five sizes: CD3, CD5, CD7, CD9 and CD11. The lures sinks slowly at 1 foot per second and can be manipulated with additional action imparted by rod twitches.

The Countdown Minnow is a multi-species lures, but is renowned for its' effectiveness on trout. Trout anglers fishing lakes and streams have found this lure to be among the most effective way to target stocked rainbow trout, Brown Trout and big German Browns. Casting or trolling, moving or stagnant water, the Rapala Countdown Minnow will illicit strikes from big suspending fish. Reports from anglers in the Ozarks fishing the White River chain credit this lures for many trophy quality fish. In California, the lure has become a favorite of lake fishermen trolling in 15-20 feet of depth during the late summer months. Our recommendations of colors would be the brown trout, rainbow trout or perch when targeting trout and the clown or fire minnow for Walleye.

Count Down Rapala April 27, 2014
Reviewer: Brent Benson from Sherwood, OR United States  
Rapala, Count Downs have been one of the hoittest lures I have used over the past 5 years. Rainbows really like the steady wobble when trolled, sometimes slowing the motor and giving a little twich is all it takes to trigger fish.

Fast Shipment February 4, 2013
Reviewer: Tom Jobson from New Paltz, NY United States  
Had no problems.  I think you could be competing head-to-head with the volumes of tacklewarehouse.com,  but your problem is ( and it is VERY serious ) that "Monster" brand is not your web site... People try to type it and cannot find you.  I think you need to change your name to your web site or buy the web URL.    If you fix that  you will have volumes up 1000%.   Gauranteed.
