Cast it far, burn it back fast, and the Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Knocker Shad’s double rattle chambers do the rest! Our Knocker Shad features both metal and glass beads for a unique, noisy, aggressive presentation that literally rings the dinner bell for hefty hawgs. Scooped head for extra action and lifelike 3-D Lazer Eyes.
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.

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.

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.

great for fish that like to eat food
This crankbait is crazy loud. I have never used one that made as much sound as this one. It has amazing action that looks like a frightened baitfish. I have caught tons of stripers, redfish, bluefish, and mackerel not to mention large and smallmouth bass. It casts a mile and you can retrieve it at any speed. Bottom line this is one of the best crankbaits i have ever used.

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.
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.
