Original Rat-L-Trap
January 4, 2014
Best bait around for black bass and white bass from mid-Summer to early Fall when their biting fast moving crankbaits. Chrome Black Back and Bleeding Shad are the two most productive colors for me. Fish it on 12# fluorocarbon using a 7' rod and high speed reel to cover a lot of water.
Pros:
Catches fish. Period.

The BEST most Versatile Bait on the market!
July 26, 2013
The "Original" Rat-L-Trap made by Bill Lewis Lures ranks at the top of my arsenal. You can take this bait to any lake in the country, whether it is in the South, North, a clear deep lake or a shallow river system, this bait is guaranteed to catch fish! I fish a lot on the Tennessee River and Coosa River and this bait cant be beat in the Spring or the Fall! The bait speaks for itself! Tie one on and I promise from experience you will not be disappointed!

Worst Lure EVER
July 19, 2013
I purchased this lure a few weeks ago! The first time I used it, all the paint came off. I called the maker of the lure and they refused to give me help. I would go with a different company

Must Have
July 11, 2013
If you are looking at this item, you are a fisherman (or fisherwoman), this is a must have for either fresh or salt water. No matter what time of year, I never leave the dock without this lure. It's a great locator bait that allows you to cover a lot of water, and causes a reaction strike even when the fish aren't biting. If you want to catch more fish, throw more traps. Tight Lines!

Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap
June 18, 2013
I've been using this brand all my life. It's by far the best! The best part about their lures is they're very easy to use. I simply throw it out and reel it in and the fish will hit it. It dont really require a hard hook set. The hooks that come on the lure are super sharp! It works all year round for me. My personal favorite color is chrome and black in the 1/2 oz size! That is pure poison and matches great to what most fish feed on. It works great in freshwater and saltwater! There are a lot of different brands out there and it can confuse a fisherman but the Bill Lewis is the best in my opinion! They have been around the longest and have a unique rattle that really triggers the strike! I wouldn't go fishing with out one!
Pros:
The price point is great and they work extremely well
Cons:
I haven't found any yet! I've been very happy with this brand of lures

Top lure in America not just Louisiana
June 18, 2013
The Rat-L-Trap by far is the best lipless crank bait in the world. It works in Louisiana all over especially Toledo Bend, la. The Crawfish colors and the red Colors are great for catching lunkers and limits. Sam Rayburn, Texas use the reds also. California the best is shad colors. Florida use the silver blue or silver black backs. You just have to have in your tackle arsenal.
Pros:
You will catch more bass redfish and trout when you use them. You will gain your confidence in this lure if you use.

Liv-N-Sound
June 18, 2013
I am a competitive angler from southern NJ. Our state is one of the most populated states for its size, meaning very pressured lakes. In the spring and fall my number one go to hard bait is the 1/2 oz Rat-L-Trap. I like the red colors like Rayburn red zombie in merky water, and flashy colors like Chrome blue back for clear water. Expect crushing hits when ripped from grass or bumped off debri. I believe the sound of this baits sets it apart from other hard bait competitors. And the Mustad triple grip hooks keep the fish hooked up! Awesome baits!

Nothing Like It!!
June 12, 2013
The Rat-L-Trap is a very productive lure not only for searching for bass for an upcoming tournament but to also load up the ice chest. It truly has a knack for imitating a live bait fish's look, sound, and vibration and the fish just can't resist it. I love to use the new 1/2 oz super nova series in the RED HEAD GLASS NOVA color for clearer water conditions and the 1/2 oz super nova series GREEN LIGHT TIGER color for stained to dirty water. They both pack a punch of light and color in every retrieve especially after being ripped out and through grass beds. The LIV-N-SOUND coupled with the new SUPER NOVA luminous light and color technology makes it irresistible in open water applications. I am a tournament angler in Louisiana and the Rat-L-Trap is a MUST in my boat year round.
Pros:
The most bang for the buck, last forever, endless color combinations, top of the line fish catching technology!!!
Cons:
NONE!!

Father's Day FAVORITES

Everyone is alway searching for something to give Dad on Father's Day! Well here is the answer for Dad, if he is an angler. RAT-L-TRAPS are one of the very oldest, tried and true, proven fishing lures on the market. Make it a great day by purchasing a variety of RAT-L-TRAPS and give him a day on the water to relax and bring in a "hog"!!
Pros:
Greatest lipless out there. Very durable, easy to cast, versitle and takes nothing but someone to reel it in!!!

Best Lipless Crank Available!
June 9, 2013
We have literally lost count of the thousands of Florida Bass our clients have caught on Millwood Lake in sw Arkansas on these lipless cranks over the last few years. Having ran Millwood Guide Service for over 22 years, this is hands down, our go-to bait for clients wanting to put fish in the boat. We prefer the 3/4 oz size simply bc it gets a better reaction with larger bass, but when kids and dads show up to just "catch something" the 1/2 oz size gets the nod and is the first bait we tie on their line. Muddy water? No problem, go to the 3/4 oz in Red Shad, Toledo Gold or the new Zombie Shad patterns. Water too clear? No problem, drop down to the 1/2 oz size in Silverado aka, Millwood Magic, or Diamond Dust or any of the natural shad patterns and reel fast. Hang on because you are about to experience the thrill of the fight. Largemouth cant resist these and line size simply doesn't matter unless you want it to fish deeper, then drop to 12;lb test. Otherwise, we crank these all day on 17lb test and get bit when it counts.

Great Lure, Great Company
June 9, 2013
With the new hook and rattle design, this lure shows the hard work and dedication from this company. This lure has produced fish time and time again for years and has only gotten better instead of fading out. I have been a proffesional fishing guide for over 8 yrs and have been using Rat-L-Trap lures since the 70's, and I have seen other companies try and copy this lure, but Bill Lewis Lures have stayed true and have not stopped in improving their products to stay on top. This lure produces fish in all seasons and conditions, and is very versitle in different types of cover. Great Lure, Great Company, and Great Fishing. Mike Carter www.anglingadventures.info
Pros:
Great new hook and rattle design.
Cons:
none

A must have bait, for tournament bass anglers!
June 7, 2013
If you fish bass tournaments, you should always have a Rat-L-Trap, the Vibra-Trap series in Gold Black Back, tied on a pole. This is a great search bait, much better than a spinnerbait. It always produces part of the limits that I weigh-in, at the tournaments. Would not be out on the water, without one.

good all year long
June 6, 2013
I fish a Trap all year. My home lake water temp is down to the low 30's and high as mid 80's. A Trap will work all year long.
Pros:
Easy to use. Cast as far as you can and reel. It's that simple

Gotta have it!
June 6, 2013
Extremely good for finding and catching bass! Works best in cooler weather around Febuary and March. It has so many different ways it can be fished. I like making contact along the bottom if possible with red colors that ressemble craw fish like honey craw. Also a pause and go retrieve works wonders.
Pros:
Can be fished at any depth. Great on schooling fish!
Cons:
Keeping it a secret!

One of the best lures ever invented!
June 6, 2013
Rat-L-Trap set the original standard for what today is referred to as “lipless” crank baits. As a professional guide, if I could only have three lures in my tackle box, a Rat-L-Trap would be one of them. It’s such a versatile bait that can be fished so many ways and catch so many different species of fish. Rat-L-Trap makes a size and color for every possible scenario. A Rat-L-Trap is always tied on one of my rods.

Rat-L-Trap
June 6, 2013
I have been fishing with this brand since the early 90's. In spring I like the 1/2oz model in a crawfish or red color. In the Fall any chrome color in a 1/4oz is my go to.

The Must have in all Tackle Boxes
June 5, 2013
If you are looking for a pro recommended search bait or a bait for feeding bass this is what they are talking about. So many times we read about a "lipless" Crank. This is it. This is the bait that started the craze. There are countless copies but the RAT-L-TRAP is the legit Original. Whether I am tournament fishing or going out for fun this is the bait I have tied on. I can get dialed in on fish when I have never been to a lake. If I am having trouble catching them, I start throwing my trap. When fish are busting, I can toss the trap in the middle and hang on. You can reel it fast, ripping through grass, or reel let it drop and reel. Its a very versatile bait and one you would be remiss to be without.
