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.
