Spro rat 30

Recommended Posts

Anyone play with them. As you may have seen on another thread I picked one up the other day. Took it out to toss it around last night, no fish but it was cool. Swims great and walks amazing, also if you real a little faster it swims about 6” under the surface. Would love to hear any thing you guys have to say about them.

What size do you use. Was thinking I should have grabbed the middle one.

I use the 40 size. Like you said walking them is an underrated attribute to this bait.

I got the 40, all my catches with it were on the pause after using it as a wake bait. 

 

I found that it would roll if I swam it too fast, so I put a swivel on it and that did the trick.

I started throwing the 50 last fall and had a lot of success with it.  Most of my hits came on the pause or during a slow, straight retrieve.   I also picked up some 40s and they seem to work about as well, but are harder to keep on the surface unless I really slow down the retrieve.   I don't really walk them that often, but will give them a few twitches as soon as they splash down, both to get the lure pointed the right way and to try and take advantage of the rather large splash-down the lure has.  It works often enough to keep doing it.

I have only the original BBZ-1 rat and I believe it's now the 50 size. 2 years ago while fish with my late partner who was using the smaller size 30, bass would follow his and strike my bigger rat, he never fished it agian.
