Li­p­less crankbaits are well no­to­ri­ous and well­known for their abil­ity to cover big ar­eas of wa­ter quickly and to pro­duce fish. Rat-L-Trap is one the best known li­p­less crankbaits. They are noisy, flashy at­ten­tion get­ters, Rat-L-Traps can be fished in a va­ri­ety of sit­u­a­tions from shal­low to deep and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. They are usu­ally fished in a cast-and- crank shal­low wa­ter sit­u­a­tion. They are also ef­fec­tive when al­lowed to sink to the bot­tom and burned over deep struc­ture back to the boat. With this method, just po­si­tion the boat on the up­hill side of a point or un­der­wa­ter hump and throw out as far as you can. Let the bait sink to the bot­tom and start the re­trieve up the slope, bang­ing into rocks and other ob­struc­tions along the way. The Rat-L-Trap is best known for rip­ping through shal­low grass beds and sur­prising bad tem­pered bass wait­ing in am­bush. These baits will get pounded by hun­gry fish how­ever you choose to fish them.
