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 the SPRO BBZ-1 Rat lure just yet, I have too much time invested. I will catch a fish on it even if it kills me.
