The Rat-L-Trap is a highly effective lure designed to trigger neutral fish into an aggressive attack. One of its key features is the extra-loud rattles that can be heard through the hull of a boat during the retrieve. This sound, combined with the lure's tight wobbling action, makes it an irresistible target for fish. The Rat-L-Trap can be fished using multiple presentations, making it a versatile choice for anglers. It can be cast far and sinks quickly, allowing for greater coverage of the water. The lure's design also makes it effective when fished vertically with a jigging action, making it useful in colder months when fish are grouped around deep structures or wintering holes. The Rat-L-Trap is particularly effective in stained or dirty water, but it can also be successful in clear water. While it is most commonly associated with bass fishing, it can also be used to catch other species such as pike, lake trout, striped bass, speckled seatrout, and redfish. Overall, the Rat-L-Trap is a highly versatile and effective lure that should be a part of every angler's tackle box.
