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.

Great backup for the 1/4 oz

This bait is great. Based on the shad size it works well along with using the 1/4 oz . You can throw it far and slow reel it also.

When I am on a boat with my friend and we happen to see a blitz, we will cast these Rat-L-Traps and catch fish every cast! Highly productive on bluefish and stripers. I replace the hooks with small VMCs. I highly recommend this lure!
