I have been fishing swimbaits for about three years now, and the Spro BBZs were some of the first big baits I owned. After continued success, I knew I needed the rat when you first previewed it before iCAST. I preordered the Morning Dawn color as soon as it became available on Tackle Warehouse and time after time it has produced for me like none other. My favorite part is the chuckles I get from friends and family when they first see it tied on to my Dobyns.... Only to then have it get crushed by a slob. Sunday night I had back to back casts get hits, and tonight I caught my personal best off the shore. This may not be much out in Cali, but it is a rare sight over here in Mass. I hope all is well, and I look forward to your next creation.
