The Rat is the short rigger lure. The action is an aggressive swimming with a wide head shake and great sonic boom when it breathes. It will hug the water at all trolling speeds and will work fine in all weather conditions. This lure works for all larger game fish. The Rat is a Striped and Black Marlin favorite. The Frigate Rat is now a "standard lure" in St Thomas and the Bahamas.
