spro rat smaller sizes

Post by lifeofRiley » Mon Aug 24, 2020 11:18 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has tried the smaller version of the SPRO rat, either 25 or 30. They are supposed to be a wakebait, but I've heard that they dive like a crankbait. I do own a big one, but only threw it a few times, and now it sits on the shelf collecting sunlight and dust.

I use size 30. It dives, but not deep, just sub surface. River pike and smallies love it especially morning dawn color.

I have never tried the 30's, but the 40 size dives a lot more than I want on anything but the slowest retrieve. I like to throw smaller wakes right up on the bank line and I wish I could find a ~1oz wake that would stay on top across a wider range of speeds.
