The Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap 1/2oz is a lipless crankbait that has an enticing action and sound that bass can't resist. Bill Lewis' legendary invention, the Rat-L-Trap, is recognized as the most popular, and consequently, the most imitated lure over the past 35 years. But imitation doesn't mean duplication. Just ask any of the 'Who's Who' of top name Pros that used Rat-L-Trap imitations while competing against Boyd Duckett at the 2007 Bassmaster Classic. Boyd wasn't paid to fish with the original Rat-L-Trap, he made that decision himself and 'BOY OH BOYD' was it the right one! As the Bill Lewis Lure Company says, "The fact is that while dozens of lure companies have spent the last 30 years trying to make a lure as good as the Rat-L-Trap, we've been making the Rat-L-Trap better and better. Today's Rat-L-Trap is proven by leading experts to produce sound qualities nearly identical to those of schooling baitfish. These sounds are the 'Dinner Bell' for predator fish." The original Rat-L-Trap is 2 7/8" in length and weighs 1/2oz.

    The lure I call my fish finder

    Posted by Charles on Sep 28th 2020

    Great lure for south Florida for a variety of native and non-native species. I call it my fish finder. No the bad news. The quality seems to have suffered over the years. I have to adjust them to track properly and the hooks have pulled right out of the body more than once. The split rings are very poor quality. I also replace the hooks with a higher quality hook.

    Reliable Lure

    Posted by Randy Walker - RBBASSFISHING.NET on Mar 5th 2012

    The Rat-L-Trap is a must have in the boat. These baits catch fish and come in tons of colors and multiple weights/sizes. Been using for years and will continue to do so.

    Great Bait

    Posted by Chris Franks on Nov 24th 2011

    This bait has produced in fresh and salt water for years! Very inexpensive compared to other lipless crank baits. For best results fish on a Powell 706 Endurance and vary retrieve.
