Rated 4 out of 5 by Chockpish1 striped bass! I use these for striped bass! The color that seems to work here is the purple one! They are cheap, well made and they last pretty well considering the price! Just an other well made product by Bass Pro! January 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by outdoorsman21 Works Great First day out with this lure, pulled in 6 bass. Next day had countless bass. Using the 1oz 4" in Texas shad color had 6" baby bass attacking this thing and up to 5lbs pulled in with no hook issues. Only issue was the top ring ended up stretching or breaking and I lost the lure. November 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by insureu3 Excellent for value!! Great buy!! Beats paying higher dollar for "name brand" bait and catches more fish. Super durable, great hooks, and casts like a dream. Not to mention the life-like action and sonic vibrating rattle. May 9, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by OakleyBassFan Has Potential… I bought the Knocker Shad a few years back and have used them sparingly. The main reason for this is that I expected the knocker noise to be more like the XCalibur's. I have always had better success throwing rattle traps with less noise and was looking for something to increase the quality of my catch with this one. Don’t get me wrong, a bass is a bass, but if you can catch a 5 pounder vs. a 2 pounder…wouldn’t you want to?! What I did to all of my XPS Knocker's was drill a hole about 1/2 " behind the first hook to remove the smaller bb’s and then filled the hole with epoxy. This gave it a more unique knocker noise rather than all the rattling. March 29, 2011

A:depends on your retrieve. They don't have a set depth but however fast you reel and positioning of your rod tip will determine its depth.
A:I believe that this has no depth, because it doesn't float. It sinks so any depth you desire.

A:On a normal cast and retrieve they will run approximately 2 to 2.5' below surface. If you do count down and let the lure sink for say 5 seconds the lure on a long cast and steady retrieve will climb back to the 2 to 2.5' depth.
A:They don't really "dive" some sink and some float. Rat-L-Trap makes floating models. The weight of the lure causes it to sink faster usually you can count it down for the depth you want to fish at. The longer you wait to start the retrieve the deeper the lure will go until it hits the bottom. I have used the BPS Rattle shads with good results as well as Bill Lewis Rat-l-Trap's. Hope this answered your question.
