Comments: The best topwater bait i have ever fished. first cast at a very pressured pond caught a 5lber. Later that day I also caught a 1lber on the 50 size morning dawn, apparently this is not just a big fish bait. Awesome, i would highly recommend the morning dawn color in the 50 size

Comments: THIS BAIT CATCHES FISH! I bought one and took it to a local heavily pressured pond that normally only produces dinks IF you can get bit at all. I landed a 3 4 and 5lber within the first hour of fishing this bait. Since then I have caught many more huge fish out of that same pond. Best big bait for the money.

Comments: I was looking at rat wake baits in the $100+ range and just couldn't commit to spending that amount of money. I bought this bait instead and cannot understand how the expensive baits could be better than this. This rat wakes perfectly, makes a loud knocking noise, looks extremely realistic, and hooks big fish - right out of the package.

Comments: This rat is pretty amazing. I got it in the mail around 4 in the afternoon and I just went to a little spot by my house to try it out and see what it looked like. First cast I caught a 2.7 lb bass and then I just swam it in a few more times to watch it and I went home. I went back later that night just to stop by and I caught a 6 pound 0 oz bass. Ive had the lure for 2 days and Ive caught over 10 fish with the smallest being 2.7 lbs and the average around 4 pounds. This lure is phenomenal. Well worth the $30

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.
