The Scatter Rap Countdown is a minnow style plug featuring Rapala's revolutionary scatter lip technology which creates random, erratic action as it is retrieved through the water. The ultimate baitfish shape just got a bad attitude. Observing it escape while darting side-to-side is one thing, but feeling a shad bait vibrate the rod tip makes it truly unique. Baitfish skitter and scatter when they are pursued by predators – it's this erratic and evasive action that triggers the strike. Made of balsa, with a custom Scatter Lip, the Scatter Rap Countdown consistently swims with an erratic and evasive sweeping action – perfectly mimicking vulnerable baitfish. Cast or trolled, the Scatter Rap Countdown is the perfect choice for any species of gamefish. Slightly weighted, this gravity defying body sinks, at a steady rate, to your desired depth allowing you to repeatedly reach and retrieve without rising out of the strike zone. Casting or trolling, the Scatter Rap CountDown is the perfect choice for any species of gamefish.
The Scatter Lip replicates the action of a lure deflecting off of cover without the actual deflection - the lip design itself is responsible for the erratic and evasive sweepng action that will occur periodically throughout the retrieve. Anglers with experience using plugs understand the importance of creating erratic movements by deflecting the lure off obstructions such as wood, rock and brush. The deviance from the standard swimming motion triggers fish's predatory instinct and causes them to strike the bait. The Scatter Lip's design is an incredible breakthrough in reaction bait fishing as anglers need no longer rely on the deflection to trigger strikes, the bait itself does all of the work. The Scatter Rap Countdown will display the erratic action when anglers vary the retrieve speed, reel at a constant slow speed with intermittent increases and the lure will exhibit wild maneuvers that are certain to garner the attention of any predators nearby. Slightly weighted, this gravity defying body sinks to your desired depth allowing you to retrieve without rising out of the strike zone. Cast or trolled, it is the perfect choice for any species of gamefish.The wide variety of colors appeals to fish all over the country.
