The Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap is one of the most famous lures ever made! First introduced over 50 years ago, the Rat-L-Trap has stood the test of time and is arguably one of the most effective bass lures in history, and has probably put more bass in boats than any other lure. The key to the Rat-L-Trap's success is its versatility. These lures can be fished at just about any depth in a wide variety of cadences. The ultra-loud internal rattles call fish from a distance, and with literally over 100 different color patterns to choose from you can certainly find the right color to match the forage in your home waters. Rat-L-Traps are also great lures for walleye, perch, crappie, and even inshore saltwater species like stripers and snook.

The bass and sometime's crappie love these things when the shad are spawning. I've caught 8-10 pound bass on them. They work well other time's as well.

I have used Rat-L-Traps for decades to catch Walleye, Trout and both Small & Largemouth Bass. If the fish are there, these things will catch them.

Poor quality
August 30, 2020
When did the quality get bad on bill lewis rattletrap ?? I have fished with them for many years and have always loved them. Lately I have noticed the quality is not what it once was. I was fishing yesterday and 2 different rattle traps (lake fork special ) peeled apart. There was just a sticker on the side of the bait and it peeled off and I was left with a chrome blue back bait. Not close to what I am used to with these baits. Very disappointing for a 1 time go to bait..
Pros
  • Good action and sharp hooks
Cons
  • Poor workmanship in building the bait. For that price they should last more than 1 trip...
