Customer Reviews Back to Top

Comments: Awesome Bait. Killed it at night with the Black Rat Ninja. Doesn't perform well in weeds and lilly pads, the large bill catches everything. My brother saw me catch 6 3lbers on the first night so he went out and bought the purple morning dawn, and it also produced big bass in MA. Buy this bait! Reasonable price for a quality rat!

Comments: One of the best purchases that I've made in a long time when it comes to largemouth bass fishing. I got the Morning Dawn cause it's all the rage and highly recommend it. Have been using it for two days, have had two followers in the 6 pound range, nailed two small fish the same size of the lure, and had a 3 pounder get it but threw me when she jumped. I even have a buddy who is using this for Yellowtail and Calico Bass in the ocean.

Comments: Great Bait. First time using caught a 5lber on the third cast! Isn't just for big fish either. Caught many bass as small as one pound on this rat.

From: Jack: St. Louis, MO 7/10/15

Comments: This rat is awesome. First time out I caught a 6 lb Bass. Bass love this. Second time out I got 6 fish. Slow to medium retrieve worked best for me

From: Mike: Allentown, PA 5/22/15

Comments: The fish really like this bait unfortunately the paint isn't too durable but that doesn't really matter with topwater for the most part. love this bait I've already had an 8 choke it!

From: Bass Angler: Memphis, TN 4/17/15

Comments: USE 85# braid!!! this dandy will also catch small fish but its design say's hogs. i use a 8 ft. heavy action rod with a fast retrieve b/c reel and they work fine so far. biggest fish is a 7.5 lg mouth in the middle of a tule patch. since color means little with surface lures, pick one or two and have some fun. night fishing is a blast and as exciting as bassing can be. good luck --

From: Wes: Salinas, CA 3/21/15

Comments: Finally a super rat at a great price! Last year the "RAT" craze began, and now there is a migration of new "RAT" lures. The Spro BBZ-1 Rat has staked it's claim for water supremacy. Move over rodents, this alpha rat's mindset is on total largemouth bass domination!

From: William: Thomaston, GA 3/18/15

Comments: This rat is awesome! I recommend buying it if you bass fish. My first cast I landed a 4 pounder! The bait has an awesome life-like movement through the water and the slow roll is a largemouth killer!

From: Mason: San Jose, CA 2/23/15

Comments: I'm very impressed. Weighing 2 1/2 ounces it's not too big, but definitely targets the hogs. I see it more like a swimbait than just a wake bait. One of the best things about this lure is you don't have to replace the hooks or split rings. Great quality and, unbeatable price. Highly recommended.
