Seems like the rattlebait bite is heating up right along with the temperature. Last trip out the bass were hitting rattlebaits so hard and fast they literally ate the paint off a few of my favorites. So it seemed like a good time to add a little detail and refinish the best of the lot. I added kill dots, layered lateral lines some subtle highlight shades, and a bloody wound. Finished them off with a fresh coat of D2T and new hooks. Used handmade stripe and dot stencils, iridescent and transparent acrylic paint to add the bling. Might get a few good photo's of the results next time out. Can't wait to try 'em out!

Good choice CW...that little 1/4 ounce rattlebait is pure poison when the bass are actively chasing shad. I've gone thru several in the last year, they just get torn the heck up....the bass hits are so hard it strips the finish off and mangles the hooks...I have to change them out after every few trips.

Fished up north in Fannin county with pretty good results...lots of numbers (+20) most were in the one to three pound range, but no big bass. The majority of the strikes came on two baits...they were inhaling them.
