Favorite Rattle Traps

Post by Bossman583 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:32 pm

I love the Xcalibur Xrs and Xrks but they are pretty hard to come by now. What are yall all time favorites?

Never tried the xcalibers but I've heard great things. My answer is pretty tame. Red eye shad and ratltrap. My all time best producer however, is a cotton Cordell super spot in citrus shad. Yum.

5/8 Rattlin Vibe in some type of baitfish looking color has consistently gotten more bites than anything for a decade...

Cant wait to try the new smaller model when available.

I have a lifetime supply of XCalibur One Knockers & rattlers stashed but have had good success on Yo-Zuri’s 3D Vibe series. Very well made baits with acceptable stock hooks but more importantly they get bit.

Red Eye Shad 2 Tap, OG Rat L Trap, Cordell spot and the academy h20 ones all have produced for me.

I have a yo zuri one too that has been excellent as well.

Lucky craft LV, YoZuri 3d vibe, and xcalibur XR/XRK. For the money the YoZuri is hard to beat. It casts well and gets bit.
