Anyone who is familiar with the knock of a well-made jointed wood rat bait might initially agree… if your mind is closed. The problem with that thinking is two-fold; one they haven’t been shown how a production model bait can overcome that hurdle, and two (most importantly) they haven’t listened to what the fish have to say on the subject!
Unlike those early naysayers, the fish aren’t laughing at this topwater bait. The BBZ Rat, now available in size 50, 40, and 30 is catching spectacular fish all across the planet. From personal bests, double hook ups, young and old, saltwater and freshwater, day or night, apparently there are no limits to the fish species that will eat this lure.
Keeping an open mind, and letting the fish decide what works best is a long-standing tenant of The Big Bass Zone.
