The Rapala DT (Dives-To) series of crankbaits dive fast to a preset depth and stay in the “strike zone” longer than any than other crankbait on the market. Made from the top seven percent of balsa wood, this consistently perfect wood combined with carefully placed internal weights, tapered fuselage and thin tail design creates the ultimate crankbait action, found only in the DT family. An ultra-thin polycarbonate lip digs the bait down quickly to desired depth. Swimming with a side-to-side action only balsa crankbaits can achieve, the DT cranks deep, yet pulls with ease. Perfectly weighted to rest in a “quick-dive” nose down position allowing for immediate descent to desired depth, the DT can be easily cast 150 feet. Simply put, the farther the cast, the longer the bait stays in the strike zone. It's the most effective way to cover more water and catch more fish. Internal baritone rattle is tuned for best sound performance. Premiere finishes in all the right color patterns, finished with 3D holographic or painted eyes. All come with premium VMC black nickel hooks. Each lure is hand-tuned and tank-tested to swim perfectly right out of the box.

The Rapala story began in the 1930’s in Finland when Lauri Rapala made a simple observation that big fish eat smaller fish, targeting the wounded ones first. Lauri set out to carve a lure to mimic the wounded minnows. Armed with cork, a shoemaker’s knife, sandpaper, and a plan, what would become one of the world’s most popular lures took shape. Just as he had envisioned, big fish couldn’t resist the wounded action of the Original Floating Rapala.
Today, Rapala continues to make the Original Floating Minnow. In addition, they offer crankbaits, jerkbaits, topwater baits, jigs, and more. They also offer a full lineup of tools, pliers, scales, and fillet knives. As one of the most recognizable brands to fishermen around the world, it’s likely you have a Rapala lure in your tackle box. Whether you fish a DT Series for bass, a Husky Jerk for walleye, or the Original Floating Minnow for trout, as long as big fish are eating smaller fish, fish will be eating a Rapala.
