Rat-Man Lures


Recommended Posts

I purchased a large muskie lure (12 inches long) from Cabelas back in the mid 1990s. The lure was named or made by Rat-Man. The lure manufacturer resided in Minnesota. I am interested in getting a few more of the large lures but can not find any Rat-Man lures anywhere. Can anyone help?

I also had several Rat-man lures that I purchased in the late 80's and early 90's. They were expensive but had great action. I recall stumbling on the piece of paper with there contact info about 6 months ago in a box in the basement. I will do what I can and see if I can locate that piece of paper. It was one of those sheets that came with the lure. I haven't heard from them in years though.

I never purchased any Rat-Man lures, but I always enjoyed his sales pitches & demonstrations at the Sportmans Show every spring. Always a highlight! Vern

Sorry, I haven't seen the Rat-Man booth for years. Maybe they are still around & I'm just missing it, I don't know. Vern

I go to A LOT of shows and I haven't seen them for years. They made a jointed bait that looked like a pike that worked really good, but their poppers were the best!!

I read a story a couple of years ago that the man that designed/made the Rat-Man lures had passed away. I have a couple myself and got them at the sport show in Chicago back in about '91/'92. You can occasionally see the lures up for auction on E-Bay and they seem to go for a pretty good price as a collectible!

Thanks for the info...
I suspected that the business was gone since no one has seen new Rat-Man lures since the mid 90s. I wanted the lures for pike fishing but buying them as collectables does not seem to be the way to go. I have found lures about the same size as the 12 inch Rat-Man. Hopefully they will work as well.
Thank you again for your help in my lure search. Jim
