There are a few different ways to clear the Rapala scales. One way is to use a product called Scale-Away, which can be found at most fishing stores. Another option is to use white vinegar. Soak the lure in white vinegar for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off with fresh water. Finally, you can also use a product called Baitmate, which is specifically designed to clear the scales of lures and baits.

Rapala scales can be cleared by soaking them in a hot vinegar bath. The vinegar will help to break down the built-up gunk and grime on the scales, making it easier to remove them. Be sure to soak the scales for long enough so that the vinegar can do its job, and then use a soft brush or cloth to scrub them clean. It is also useful to read the instructions from Rapala

Scale can be removed with a light abrasive, such as a Scotch Brite pad. Be careful not to damage the finish of the lure.

Most people use a vinegar/water solution to clear the scales on their Rapala fish lures. Fill a small container with half white vinegar and half water. Soak the lure in the solution for about 30 minutes. The scales should start coming off easily. If they don’t, soak it for a little longer. After the scales are removed, rinse the lure with fresh water and dry it off with a cloth or paper towel.

Scale on a Rapala can be caused by a number of things. The most common is contact with dirty water. When the lure becomes too heavy from scale build-up, it will eventually start to affect the lure’s balance and swimming action, making it difficult for the fish to take it properly.

To clean the scale off, use a scouring pad or steel wool (being careful not to damage the paint finish) and then polish with a soft cloth. You can also try using rubbing alcohol or white vinegar on a Q-tip, but take care not to get either one inside the lure’s moving parts. If you do, you’ll need to disassemble the lure and clean everything out before reassembling it.

Rapala scales can be cleared using a simple vinegar and water solution. First, make sure the fish is completely dead and has been cleaned of all blood and guts. Then fill a bowl with cold water and add 1 cup of white vinegar. Immerse the fish in the vinegar solution for 30 minutes. Remove from the solution and rinse under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. The scales should now be clear. Read the instructions for use carefully:
