Just finished brushing a few rattle baits. The pattern is pretty simple and is based on a Diawa GameVibe color that really catches fish for me.

Not sure if the size, shape, rattle or color is the key so here are three different types of rattle baits from the same paint schedule. Gonna fish all of them and see what happens. fish

Three more rattle baits in a Threadfin-ish pattern (not clear coated yet):

Used iridescent around the kill dot....may lose that. Thinkin' the yellow along the back needs more detail, like darker scales intermittently along its length. Used Metallic Silver on the sides for flash.. may switch to a lighter pearlescent color. hmmm Suggestions appreciated, as always.

That darker hue over and in front of the eyes makes 'em look a little angry doesn't it. Those three are my first attempt to knockoff Diawa's Grey/Blue shad pattern. Added a little bling just for grins grin

I wouldn't change much if anything! If your wanting a little different look maybe a pearl white scale overlay, if won't change the overall appearance much, but might give it a little extra pop. Regardless they are great looking baits and I bet the fish will agree.

First trip to the lake with the Grey/Blue shad was good....landed lots of 1-3 lb. bass. Most of them were holding just off the top of a tank dam in about 4-6 foot of water. This one, , got more hits than the others and was lost to what felt like a pretty large fish. The others got bit but not like that one. Murphy's Law in play ...only took one of that style bang...starting to not trust Stren fluorocast for leader line. Anyway, first trip is in the books with good results. Sorry no pics...left the cellphone in the truck...too lazy to go back for it.

Does anyone know who carries 1/8 - 1/4 ounce rattle bait blanks? Thinking a floating rattle bait would be a good option, too.

Can't find small rattle baits anywhere.....BPS carries painted small lipless lures for crappie...but they "apply suction". Found Rattletraps in 1/8 ounce but colors are very limited and the $$ is foolish. Would prefer to do my own patterns. Anyway, I always catch pretty good sized crappie and some bass on small rattlebaits....any info on small lipless blanks would be much appreciated. texas

Those 1/2 ounce blanks are sweet....Diawa Vibe rattle baits outperform all my other lipless lures, hands down. Emailed GBCB to get info on the smaller ones...thanks again BC
