Rapala Ratlin 05 Lipless Crankbait is an excellent quality crankbait that features great swimming action and rattling balls for attracting fish underwater. This lipless crankbait is effective at catching fish like largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel and more. It dives 4 to 7 feet underwater where its swimming action can get you some nice fish.

Crankbait with attractive swimming action
The main reason for this lures effectiveness is its swimming action. On a slow retrieve the crankbait wiggles back and forth making it look like a real fish. The lure is also very good when you retrieve it quickly. Again the Rapala Ratlin crankbait starts to wiggle producing plenty of vibrations. Another great feature of this fishing lure are the rattling balls on the inside. The rattling noise helps to attract fish by producing sound and waves that fish are attracted to. Combined with the great swimming action and the rattling noise, this crankbait is sure to get you more strikes on your next fishing trip.

Jerk back-and-forth to produce strikes
Most effective way to use the Rapala Ratlin 05 Crankbait is to jerk the bait back and forth. This technique works well because it simulates a wounded fish. So as long as there is a fish around where you are fishing, there is no doubt you will be able to hook it with this technique.
