  • Translucent textured body with internal holographic foil
  • 3D Holographic eye
  • Lipless swimming action
An alarm clock with hooks, Rapala's lipless Clackin' Rap creates a distinctive sound and vibration that wakes the big ones up! The Clackin' Rap's uniquely designed sound chamber features a single steel ball and external metal discs that transmits an unbeatable clacking sound with maximum vibration. The Clackin' Rap features a translucent textured body with internal holographic foil to produce an extremely seductive flash. Simply cast, allow it to sink and employ a fast retrieve. Both models run at variable depths.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by great, but not excellent I think I've benn using this lure for about 2 months and i still haven't caught a single fish on any of the colours i own. Which is weird because i've had tones of fish (especially pike) follow in this lure but i've never had a hook up. It has great action, durability, and noise but no fish have bit! But i certainly am not giving up on this bait! aswell, it is not worth $10, if you want a good liples crankbait buy the rattlin rapala which is only $4 and it always produces! May 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Lure ever I absolutely love this lure. I bought one of these in the wrong color a few months ago and i still catch bass on it. the sound it gives off with its metal rattling chamber is so unmatched that bass strike it even though it looks nothing like any bait fish found anywhere in any lake i fish in. It always swims true and the way it swims it rarely gets hung in the grass but always gets hung on the bass! March 10, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by cant catch a fish with um I bought several of these and they look and sound awesome... i have fished them several several times and cant seem to catch a thing... however i bought them pretty late in the season and haven't really been catching anything so we will see next spring.. expensive for a lure when you can catch bigger fish on a 10 pack of plastics for 3.99 November 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT I have been using this lure on schooling bass chasing schooling shad. It's great because you can cast it a mile and you won't spook the shad, plus it's a good match the bait lure. Throw it in the school and catch the bass just about everytime October 4, 2012

losing big fish often

Details: 
Ive been using this lure ever since they came out and I seem to lose 50% of the big 5,6,7 lb bass I hook when they break the surface. The bait always comes out the first time they surface or jump. Ive changed hooks to widegap and it still happens. Lost the largest bass Ive ever had on last week to this same issue. Anyone else have any suggestions?

A: 
It may be your line. Use a fluorocarbon line and not braid. I use 14lb. test. also when the bass is about to jump try lowering the rod tip as he comes up and raising it back as he goes back down. I do this often and i even end up putting the rod tip in the water sometimes but is works.

A: 
The problem with Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, or other hardbaits is they provide the fish leverage. When they break the surface they are just shaking that hook loose with all that leverage from the bait swinging around. as previously recommended, line stretch and softer rod action help to keep constant tension on the lure as they break the surface. You could also try adding a ball bearing swivel to the rear hook to help reduce leverage. Ive seen quite a few lure manufacturers adding swiveling hooks to their baits to reduce leverage.

A: 
my guess is you are using too stiff of a rod and/or a superline or braid. both are no-no's for crankbaits. use a medium action rod and mono. also play the fish with the rod more to the side than tip up - playing tip up will pull the fish towards the surface where there is a better chance of them coming unbuttoned...

The smaller size gets the nod from me most of the time. Large size if I am wanting real quality fish. I would sugest taking off the sureset hook, the shape of the clakin rap is awesome in woody cover but the surset hook takes away that advantage.

A: 
I have caught 22 inch bass with a surface temp of 87 degrees on a steady retrieve and occasional pause for bass following. Rapala Clackin' Raps catch bass on steady retrieves all season even in water as cold as 34 degrees while it's snowing in Michigan, and they work in the hottest weather of the summer. You need Clackin' Raps - they are better than any other lipless crankbait for big bass. My favorite colors are Yellow Perch, Hot Steel, & Red Crawdad. You will always find Clackin' Raps in all my tackleboxes, and on my rod. They are that great of a lure for huge bass, big pike, and big walleye. I start out with a Clackin' Rap on each spot and don't leave a spot without throwing it again. It catches so many good fish that it's hard to put it down and use anything else. Jigging does work if you have rock piles or underwater structures, but I usually do great along the deep weed edge tight as possible to the weeds without snagging them.

Staff Answer
A: 
Yes, this would work for summer. Just pick the right color for water and the sunny days.

In clear water use clearer, lightly colored worms, shad colored crankbaits and white spinnerbaits. In dingy water, use more chartreuse, more spinnerbaits with hammered blades, brighter chartreuse crankbaits and purple or black worms. For stained or muddy water, throw some sort of dark or bright colored lure.

Yes you can fish it in a depth of 5' around wood as long as there are no weeds growing high in the area. I like the Clackin Rap 6 shallow and the size 7 is good 8' to 15' and the size 8 is great for deep water 10' and down to 30' for big bass and pike. Fish your Clackin Rap on deep drop offs and along weed edges in addition to the wooded spots. I used a Size 8 Clackin Rap on a weed edge about 8' to 12' deep and big bass were all over it, including the bass in the picture I will upload.

A: 
Absolutely the Rapala Clackin' Rap, especially when it comes to big bass and pike. The size 6 Rapala Clackin Rap is a great smallmouth bass lure and will catch a lot of largemouth bass and average size pike. The Size 8 Rapala Clackin Rap for me has caught bass 16" and bigger including 6 pounders from a lake in Michigan where local fisherman usually catch 2 to 3 pound bass. On that same lake it has also landed a lot of pike. Use the smaller Clackin' Rap for numbers of fish and smaller sized bass, and when you want a big bass use the size 8 Clackin' Rap. Get colors that you know are good for bass where you are fishing and be confident that a good bass could hit at any time. One of my 6 pounders hit 4 feet from the boat I was using the day after Thanksgiving 2009 in 35 degree water! Rapala Clackin Raps work for bass and pike anytime there is not ice, and the cold water hits tend to be the bigger fish.

A: 
They are both great lures, but I prefer the Strike King Red Eye Shad. The Clackin Rap and the Red Eye Shad can be "burned" quite effectively while the Rat L Trap has a tendency to turn on its side. The Red Eye Shad also has a seductive shimmy when it falls straight down and then is ripped back up, while the Rat L trap will often spiral or turn on its side. However, all three are incredible fish catching lures.

A: 
Go with the color that looks like the natural forage base of the lake you fish. If you have a favorite color of crankbait, get a Clackin Rap in the same color and expect to catch a lot of bass. You will want a net and pliers when you use the Clackin' Rap; it catches big bass.

Well the silver is the most common color to use for everyday use. The red with green back is superb for most times of the year. I would buy a small assortment and toss all of them and find out what the bass want. I have had the best luck with the red craw green back myself.

I use it on a 6:2:1 gear ratio reel most of the time, and sometimes 7:1 too. It is very effective at any speed you fish it on a high speed reel. I like slow rolling, fast rolling, any speed on a steady retrieve is good: slow & steady, moderate steady, and steady fast catch bass and northern pike. Try fishing it close to weeds for some huge bass.
