Was watching the Bass Champs Tournament at Sam Rayburn on OLN earlier this week. The 2 fisherman they featured said they were using Rattle Traps. They referred to the color as "Brown Eyes"... Anyone know where I can get a picture of this color scheme?... Heading for Rayburn in a couple of weeks and we need all the help we can get... Thank Dan

They never gave a close up but it almost looked like a yellow rattletrap that had brown around the eye area. I can't find a picture but they did say you can't buy them anymore, go figure. Funny how some productive baits get discontinued and you have to try and find them on ebay or somewhere else.

It kinda looked like this but yellow not chartruese:

They're right, you can't buy them anymore. Most of the guys that have them won't get rid of them.

If you can get a pic of the lure this guy can paint it for you ... he might even know the color and have a pattern for it!

He does awesome custom lure painting!

All you have to do is stop in at Ann's Tackle when you get to Rayburn, and ask her to give you something similar to the brown eye color. There is a color that is close to it that she has.

Old Mack has a lot of lures and some of them are decades old. He just might have some.
