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
ProsGreat new hook and rattle design.

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.

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.
ProsEasy to use. Cast as far as you can and reel. It's that simple

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.
ProsCan be fished at any depth. Great on schooling fish!
ConsKeeping it a secret!

One of the best lures ever invented!

Rat-L-Trap set the original standard for what today is referred to as €œlipless” 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.

Greatest lure ever produced for simplifying catching giant bass!!! Throw it out and reel it in. That's it. My favorite colors are the chromes, with chrome and blue back being my favorite.

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

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.

Whether you are a tournament veteran or just enjoy catching more fish, every angler needs a Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap in their tackle box.
