The Phat Rat Downsized Composite
The Phat Rat Downsized Composite - 18.99 each
Flat side action in a round bodied bait. That sums up the Phat Rat.
This little crank bait is a cold weather killer on big fish. The Phat Rat is 3 inches long and weighs around 13 grams. It runs 6-8 ft deep dependent upon tackle used, and can be run in shallow depths measured in inches of water. Savvy anglers report they have found ways to run it in- excess of 10 feet deep, with lighter lines and long casts. It hunts extremely well and has a moderately fast/tight wobble. It is a cold- water assassin and has established a nasty reputation locally as a plug big smallmouth just choke down with frightening regularity. Anglers who purchased the first runs soon began giving it nicknames and spoke of it in hushed tones during weigh ins and did not speak of it at all, except in trusted company. The Phat Rat is that danged good. So good, competitors are already trying their hardest to duplicate it in plastic and wood.
Throughout one year of testing in tournament competition on the college tours and selected semi- professional events, as well as, a number of Local East Tennessee Derbies, one trophy sized bass after another, was caught on this bait. It has cashed checks for competitive anglers across the nation and is a favorite of our staff and many East Tennessee Crank Bait Junkies. Walleye anglers are now starting to throw it due to its toughness and effectiveness and proof of the Phat Rat’s tendency to stroke giants can be found on our Instagram page.
The Phat Rat’s composite construction allows you to creep it through cover much more slowly with no loss of action, unlike traditional balsa or cedar baits which rise quickly on slower retrieves. You can throw it far further with ease unlike commercially produced baits of similar size and shape. The square bill brings it through the rough stuff like a champ. Allowing you can keep it in the strike zone longer. It can be burned with ease without climbing when fish are more aggressive and has a very pronounced tail kick when burned.
Size 6 KVD Triple Grip Mustad Hooks are standard. Each bait is hand- made start to finish and painted with high quality paints and premium top coating for resistance to hook rash and chips. You can bash it off rocks and concrete all you want, with no fear of breakage or lost performance experienced when throwing wood baits in such a fashion. Give the Phat Rat a try and you will be hooked, we guarantee it.
