Features:

  • The Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap is the classic lipless crankbait, famous for its ability to cover a lot of water.
  • Best known for ripping through shallow grass beds for bass waiting in ambush.
  • Loud rattles and flashy shad profile with super-tight wiggling action garners lots of attention.
  • Can be fished in a variety of ways, from shallow to deep, fresh or saltwater.
  • Available in over 50 proven fish-catching colors.

The Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap is THE original lipless crankbait. First developed by Bill Lewis himself in the late 1960s, the Rat-L-Trap is a 3 inch, 1/2 ounce shad profile lure that has seen extensive use by anglers all over the world for over 50 years! The secret to its success? These things are easy to use and flat out catch fish in a variety of water clarity conditions and depths.

Fishing in stained, dirty water? There's a wide range of dark and chrome colors that stick out to predators hunting in low visibility conditions. Is your local lake as clear as the first sunny day of spring? Well, there's a plethora of realistic baitfish color schemes (everything from Ayu to Warmouth) that can help you "match the hatch" and put fish in the boat. Deep water? Shallow water? The Rat-L-Trap works great in both. Fish 'em slow in the shallows with a simple cast-and-crank technique or let them sink to the bottom and burn 'em back across deep structure to create tons of bite-enticing deflections. Yo-yo-ing off the bottom works great too.

Overall, the Rat-L-Trap is a time-tested lure that deserves a spot in every anglers tackle box. Its low-frequency knocking pitch accompanied by its tight wiggling action and shad profile flash are a simple recipe to get you bit. Fish it in saltwater or freshwater and choose among a wide range of proven and tested fish-catching colors to suit your needs.

    An Amazing Bait

    It's hard to beat the Original Rat-L-Trap. It has an extremely aggressive rattle! By far one of the most if not the most aggressive rattles of any lipless crankbait. One of the major benefits of the Original Rat-L-Trap is its versatility. You can pretty much fish this lure anytime and anywhere and consistently catch fish. Plus, there's well over a hundred color combinations to choose from so whether you're fishing clear or dirty, stained water, there's plenty of color options to select from. Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap just released several new color options this year. Another great benefit is that these baits are made right here in the U.S.A! High quality from a fantastic company!

    Orignal Rattletrap

    Copied many times. but the ORIGINAL Bill Lewis rattle traps still out perform any others on the market. Ive fished them in professional tournaments and fun fishing decades. The patented rattles give the perfect sound to entice big fish. They can also be very effective e when the bite is off. Winter or summer. I NEVER go fishing without these baits in my gear.

    Rat-L-Trap is always a winner

    I bought this color to use in murky water. Since we have had little rain lately I have stuck with the perch and sunfish colors! My biggest bass of the year 24” was caught on the Rat-L-Trap. I will fish it more and more as the water warms and the big ones head deep!

    multi species catching hard lure

    I catch lots with this one. I have caught perch, small mouth bass, spot bass, largemouth bass, and even walleye! I like the chartreuse colors best.
