Already happening! Out of the 200+ boats in TTT on Toledo this weekend I bet there will be at least 150 boats with some version of a red "trap" on deck.

Well so much for trying to find a good red trap in the fishing aisles. Another secret has been let out of the bag.

Love that trap! As stated above replace the hooks and you have a fish catcher.

It mimics red crawfish really well. But they'll hit just about any color under the right conditions.

They don't. It's a mystery.
But Booyah took the reigns and is producing these:

Is it the same blank and same rattle? I assume notbecause it say's "hard knocker". Does that mean it has one big rattle like the "one knocker"?

One rattle. Like the old Cordell Hot Spots, when you were lucky enough to get one where the weight was loose.

Just my personal preference, but the Gammy EWG Short Shank 2x Magic Eye or the Owner STX-38 Zo Wire are extremely solid options
