I’m going to start out by saying I hate the SPRO BBZ-1 Rat. When I say hate, it’s a love/hate kind of thing. For some reason I can’t catch a fish on it. I’ve had hits on it, but every single time I hook one on, the fish jumps and spits the lure. A couple of things I have noticed is the bait tends to roll to one side if you reel it in too fast. Also on the one I have, sometimes the rear hook gets caught in the joint which then makes it swim horribly on that retrieve. I know it works, it just does not work for me. I’ve seen countless videos and pictures of monster fish caught with them. I’m using 20 pound braid tied directly to it. What am I doing wrong? Anyone have any tips to share?
I’m not giving up on this lure just yet, I have too much time invested. I will catch a fish on it even if it kills me.
