  • WeightedControlled sinking action
  • Troll or cast
Properly weighted for controlled sinking action, Rapala's CountDown Minnow allows you to put it exactly in the feeding zone of suspended fish, just above weed tops or on bottom structure for deeper feeders. CountDown Minnows can be trolled or cast in the usual manner, and have proven to be extremely effective for bass, walleye, and large trout. 1" models come with one hook, all other sizes have 2 hooks.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but cheap lip bell Works good for trout but the plastic lip bell brakes easy February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the #1 lure ever This lure works for any spices of fish in freshwater. It is the go to lure for early morning fishing. It can catch anything, bass, crappie, pike, walleye, trout, muskies, pickerel, even sunfish. You name it, this lure will catch it. Any color works but my favorite is silver. September 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best lures these Rapala countdown minnows lures are the best. my friend was down rigging at 18 feet to 25 feet, action was slow . I went to top water fishing with the rainbow countdown lure 6-8feet. and starting within minutes getting hits. had my two fish in twenty minutes. second time out same thing with brown trout countdown lure. June 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by They work I compete in local bass club tournaments, placed 2nd and 2 fourths so far and 1 lunker this year. June 4, 2013

Countdown vs. running depth

Details: 
If the lure is allowed to sink to a pre-determined depth (say, 15 feet at the typical 1ft/sec rate), upon retrieval will it then make it's way up to it's stated running depth, or stay deeper?

A: 
It really depends how deep you go and how fast the retrieve is. Running depth can be changed for a variety of reasons. Putting splitshots in front of the lure can get it to go down deeper, the angle of retrieve, how far it's out...etc etc...

When I use stickbaits of any kind in deeper water where I want them to get deep, I put a few splitshots 12" above the lure to keep it down deeper than its stated depth.

Sorry theres no real clear answer to your question, but I think if you retrieve slow for the duration of your retrieve, you'll find the bait stays near the bottom until the angle of the retrieve when it's close to the boat causes it to start heading towards the surface. Hope I helped a fellow VT'er, :)

A: 
Typically size won't matter much because this is a reaction bait. I"ll catch minnows on size 08, but with smaller hooks on a smaller bait the odds that the fish will get the bait in the mouth does increase, especially with a trout's small mouth.

i like this lure, but is there a better lure of the same shape?
if so, what would it be?
where could i find it?
what is it called?
or is this the best lure of this body shape?

Answers

A: 
YES! Hopefully you read this review, but I doubt you will. Try the Rebel Tracdown, it's a MUCH better alternative to this. it has more erratic action, catches more fish, & doesn't run sideways no matter how many fish you pull in on it.

A: 
This lure fills a specific niche, being able to "countdown" do a specific depth. As with the "best" for its shape that all depends on what the fish want for a specific day and your fishing style. Though seasonal water temp would dictate that a sinking minnow would best be fished during the winter, you can work it fast enough to keep it high in the water collum during warmer months. I personally like this lure in small rivers and pools for trout. I typically wrok the lure as a jerkbait but a steady retrieve will sometimes work too. Hope this helps.
