Fat the Water
Rat was created in 1985 as a test plug in a group of 75 top water lures we had created over the winter months in Maine. The plugs
were given out to friends and neighbors with our phone number to call
with the results of fishing with their test lure. Everyone had good luck
fishing the two bladed top water baits and several people caught trophy
size small mouth bass up to six pounds! My two sons, Jay and Rod began
to tell some tall tales about the ones that got away when they were fishing
with Fat-Fat the Water Rat and after a little experience fishing the bait,
they began to land a lot of big bass.
stood out from the rest as the top producer in the testing. This particular
plug had been put together exactly backwards and it fished differently
than any of the other baits. The plug had a fish feeding slurp, darted
back and forth at the slightest line twitch, and the fish enticing bulge
it made was awesome! The plug cast farther with less effort because its
heavy end was in the back.
years of fishing, the original plug has worn out six sets of hooks, a
dozen or more propellers and a lot of fishing line. I personally have
caught more than 500 small mouth bass of three pounds and over. There
have been scores of pickerel, white perch, largemouth bass, white bass,
salt water fish, pike, musky, and even an Atlantic salmon or two that
got greedy and thought Fat-Fat was a good lunch.
Current Model - top
The current model of Fat-Fat the Water Rat is an exact copy of the original lure and is being handmade in a limited production of 1000 lures. Each lure is an extraordinary addition to anyones fishing arsenal or lure collection.
Water Rat has gold plated, counter rotating propellers on front and back
to keep the lure from spinning on retrieve. Always make sure both props
are free from weeds and debris and turn freely in the water.
Water Rat has oversize hooks and split rings that combine to make more
surface noise and keep the hooks swinging when a fish tries to shake the
hooks loose. The special cedar wood body is waterproofed all the way through
and resonates the lures sound to make this the Stradivarius of fishing
