Still the number one “go-to” lure. Whether twitched on the top as a surface bait, retrieved as a shallow runner,
weighted with a split shot for medium depths or bottom walked off a three-way swivel or bottombouncer, the wounded
minnow action continues to be irresistible to gamefish on every continent around the world.

How to Fish:
When fishing very skinny water keep the rod tip up and retrieve slowly so that the lure just slightly ripples the surface. To cause more commotion on top use either a twitching retrieve or stop & go retrieve, allowing the lure to float back up to the surface before twitching or reeling again.
when fishing flowing water and in addition to the traditional down-and-across casts; try imitating injured baitfish by casting upstream or quartering upstream and let the current bring the floating lure down, reeling just enough to keep the line tight and twitching the lure slightly on the surface film.
Carrying on a tradition that started in 1936, the original “wounded minnow” action is what has made Rapala “The world’s most trusted lure.” Premium Balsa gives them their responsive, life-like action, while the craftsmanship and dedication to excellence makes sure that each and every lure swims like the first.
Classic lures embody the same individuality that Lauri Rapala was hand carving from wood those many years ago. With every Classic lure purchased, you really are buying a part of Rapala history.
Before leaving the factory, each is inspected, hand-tuned and tank-tested for the superior quality these lures are known for. That’s why no matter where you go in the world, big fish eat little fish that swim like a Rapala.
