Bill Lewis Floating Rat-L-Trap Review by Walker Smith


Bill Lewis Floating Rat-L-Trap Review

This lure offers a pretty cool spin on an old bass fishing classic

I’m willing to bet that you have at least one lipless crankbait in your tackle box. They’ve always been popular among anglers. What’s not to love about ‘em? You can cast ‘em a mile, dissect shallow water with ease and efficiently target submerged vegetation throughout the year. They’re simply one of those “special” lures that’s proven to catch fish.

Like most of you, I’m used to heavy lipless crankbaits that sink like a rock. So when I heard about the Bill Lewis Floating Rat-L-Trap, I didn’t really know how to feel about it. It was kind of like somebody telling you about a floating flutter spoon or a peanut butter and jelly burrito—it goes directly against everything I considered normal.

I’ll be honest. I avoided using it for a while because it just didn’t seem right. I figured it would feel like putting my flip flops on opposite feet. But a few months ago I got a wild hair to rig it up and see what it would do. Change is a good thing, right?

After a lot of testing in various bodies of water, the “weirdness” of it has worn off and it has actually transformed into a pretty productive little lure for me. I think there are a few important things you should know about it.
