Bass Times Magazine - "Says Larry the Lizard will shake up the soft plastic industry!"
Denise Sustaita, TX
Larry, went out on Labor Day weekend. The spawn has been over here on my home lake (Sam Rayburn) for months now, yet the 6" Rattlin Larry continues to produce quality bass. Here, I was simply Texas Rigging the lizards with light weight, and time after time, they simply produced.
Great job on these baits. The Rattlin Series is a must have in my tackle box now!.
Chris Eagleson, LA -
I got this 10 lb bass one on your 6 inch lizard in Rayburn Red, my girlfriend got one over 14 lbs your "Rattlin" lizards.
As a tournament angler, I look for baits that are different, "The Proof is in the Live Well!" The Rattlin Chamber System really makes a difference, and the design on these baits not only look totally "Life-Like" they are amazing to see in the water too. They look and act like the real thing.
We got our "Arms Broke!"

I was recently at Lake Havasu, Az. for the Bassmaster Elite Series, I was promoting the new Z-21 Nitro's. While having dinner with some of the Bass Pro shops managers, I was introduced to a guy who called himself the Lizard. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a hand full of soft plastic baits, worms, lizards, and some frogs. He said I needed to try these out.
I really didn't give it much thought at the time. Later, the next day, during a break in the test drives of the Nitro Z's, several of the Bass Pro Shop managers and Pro-Staffers decided to go out and have a 3 hour/ 3 fish tournament.
The Western Regional Manager said this was his home water, and that no-one here would be able to touch him on Lake Havasu. That is when it hit me, I still had those Rattlin Larry the Lizards in my pocket.
It was about 15 minutes in to the tournament, when I put the first one on. It was about 3 minutes later, and I had my first fish, a 5+lb. Within a half hour, i had another one about the same size, 5 lbs.
When we weighed in, I slammed everyone with my 3 bass limit of 14 lbs, the next closest angler had 8 lbs. I have a lot of confidence in these baits now. They are just different from what's out there, and they catch fish.

Gave my pack of Watermelon Red 6" Rattlin Larry's to my father to try out. It's October now, but I think he liked them. He was so excited he made me take a picture. Those are some great baits you make there. Can't wait to see what you bring out next?

Larry just want to let you know, I Won the U.S.A. Bassin Tournament on Racoon Lake, here in Indiana using your baits. I started the day off with the Pro-Tour Rattlin Worm, Panama Red Color. Pulled in a limited and started to cull. After that I decided to go Big, and put your Magnum Rattlin Larry the Lizard to work. I pulled my Kicker with that in deeper water off a main lake point. I am very impressed with the numbers off fish, and also the quality.
I’ve never been the type to give a review on a
product that I’m not knowledgeable about.
After using these baits over the past few months
I can honestly say that I’m impressed and have
had great success.
The key baits for me have been the 10” Rattlin
Larry the Lizard, 10” Pro-Tour Rattlin Worm,
and the 4” Rattlin Frog-N-Craw. The big lizard
and worm are a go to bait out on the ledges of
the Tennessee River. They both have a big
presence in the water and attract big fish that
are looking for a good size meal.
One thing I’ve noticed is how many fish you can catch on one bait. These products are extremely durable but also super soft at the same time. When I first got them out of the pack I remember thinking that this was a great idea but I didn’t have confidence that the rattle would stick around long after a fish or two was caught. In my experience, the baits tend to be good for up to 4 or five good size fish. This seems to be better than most products out there in my opinion.
The last product I want to mention is the 4” Rattlin Frog-N-Craw. This is an awesome trailer or single bait by itself. I especially like throwing it as a swim jig trailer. The size and shape of this bait allows me to keep the bait up in the water column without having to “burn” the bait back to the boat. I am able to slow down my retrieve and let my rod tip determine where the bait is swimming. Other baits want to go down fast and you end up having to reel them too fast in certain situations. This particular bait, to me, is designed beautifully.
Key colors – Blue Fleck, Rayburn Red, Bloody Fork, Black & Blue
Hope you enjoy these products as much as I have and remember to take a kid fishing every chance you get!

This 9+lb got me 3rd Place in the Toyota Texas Bass Classic.
I was using Larry the Lizard's Big 10" Rattlin Lizard in Black & Blue color, on a split-shot Carolina Rig. I cast out and just Dead-Sticked it for about 5 minutes.
I was so impressed by these things, that I stocked my barbar shop wall with them.

Larry, I was at Amistad and using your 10" lizard and out come this giant. I had a bag of the white lizards, saw this big girl on a bed, she wouldn't hit a jig or a swim bait, so I put your lizard on, and the first time I put it on the bed, wamb-o!

"It was my go to bait, every where I was fishing was crowded and everyone was throwing crank baits. I decided to go with something different, and it paid of big time.

I have to thank my Larry for providing me with some of the best baits I've ever used. They are Larry The Lizard Custom Baits with the innovative new design and glass rattles in each of his lizard, frog/craw and worms. Each of the fish in these photos were caught on these baits. Look up his site LarryTheLizardCustomBaits.com you'll like what you see without a doubt!
So far the largest to date is a 6.05 lb bucket, awesome fish for us here in Canada.
Over a period of a couple hours using Larry The Lizard Custom Baits, black/blue frog/craw and 7" black/blue worm with built in rattles, I managed about 7 and neighbour caught 1 nice fish, he was using a Berkley black/blue 4" craw.
The weather couldn't decide to rain or shine but the these smallies, (all over 5lbs), didn't seem to care.
My neighbour Is now an avid user of Larry The Lizard Baits as I am, of course he was using my stash as these are new to Canada.

I was very intrigued by something I witnessed at ICAST-2010 It was this giant lizard, that featured a rattle chamber in the tail. It was so life-like, I mean it was like a real live waterdog.
I knew I had to take this to my testing grounds, that feature gin clear water with weary bass. Cast after cast, I could see the bass turn and examine the bait, this in waters where the bass generally get spooked by any bait that hits the water.
Needless to say, this is now my go to lizard. I like to fish it weedless, weight-less best, especially in clear water situations.
I have also found the Rattlin Frog-n-Craw that Larry the Lizard makes to be a great fish catching machine too.

4 Time Bassmaster Classic Qualifier on Larry the Lizard
I've been impressed with Larry the Lizard for a long time, these quality lures produce every where I have fished. My favorite would be the 6" Rattlin Lizard in the Bloody Fork color but there are so many good colors it's hard to have a favorite. I've whacked them on all the Larry the Lizard products Mag Lizard, Frog-N-Craw and Rattlin Worm have really produce in different situations especially when the bite gets tough. I recommend you give these lures a try , think like myself you'll be impressed!

Heads up, I won 4 strait night tournaments on your 10" Pro-Tour Rattlin Worms, Black & Blue is just Dominating the Night Tournaments here. In the day time, Panama Red is the hot ticket. I am working them Texas Rigged, with a heavier bullet weight through the grass, and just ripping out of the grass, and their on.
Don McDowell, AZ
Takes Larry the Lizard down to old Mexico. We had to many bass to count on that Rattlin Larry the Lizard, I would have to guess, but I think we had 20 over 8 lbs on that thing. Thanks for making that the trip of a life time Larry.

Larry I wanted to share my adventure to Lake Fork with you. My boyfriend got some of your 6" lizards at Lake Fork Marina. I liked the name, so I put one on. On my second cast I caught this giant, on your Green Pumpkin Chart Rattle Lizard. WOW!!! 12 lbs and my personal best.
Here is a little report as per your request Lar. I was fishing a small inland lake north of Kingston Ontario Canada. Weather was at 15 c and with a 15 kph wind out of the southwest, really nice for this time of year here. I loaded your blk/blu 4" frog'n craw with a texas rigged 1/8 oz bullet and 4.0 EWG Gamagatsu worm hook hoping for a slower fall on secondary points with structure. I downsized my line preference to 10lb Trilene Sensation as water clarity is very clear. First cast was a slight tick on the line so second cast was in same spot but letting it sit with a couple twitches.. line slowly began to move. Since our smallies like to gorge and this was one of my favourite smallie spots I set the hook sooner than I would have with a bucket so as hopefully not to throat hook if it was a smallie. Sure enough she exploded with fantastic jumps and torque on my drag and when netted I noticed she was just barely skin hooked, she was landed mainly because she obviously would not let go of that frog'n craw of yours. Love these baits Lar.. they're winners in my book!
Here's a few more porkers from this last week with thanks going out to Larry Rydalch and Larry the Lizard Custom Baits. This time using the 7" blk/blu rattlin" worm Carolina style and these lovely ladies were all over it with smallest being just over 4lbs up to 5lbs and change.. Thanks again Lar!.

Well couldn't fish ole faithful sandy river today. The water was ocer the dock. That being said briary was just low enough I could squeeze the boat in. Caught a couple decent ones. And one pig on a Chippewa lures "smallie candy" rigged with Larry Rydalchs famous Larry The Lizard craw as the trailer. That thing looked beast. Moral of the story...don't let the rain stop you.

I was never quite sure where I came across a 2 pack of the 10" Larry the Lizards in Bloody Fork ( possibly at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic held here at Lake Fork? ) but I caught my personal best on one a couple of years ago and was on a search for them ever since. I finally came across them online and bought me some more! I've just recently been trying out Larry's other products and have had great success so far with the Frog-N-Craw as well.
These are very good baits. I really like the rattle chambers built into them, this gives the bait a little noise and can trigger those fish into biting that have seen hundreds of lizards pulled by them in the last week (aka on Lake Fork) They aren't too available on the open market, and I think other fishermen would agree these are good and unique baits. The different sizes of lizards offer a good variety too. As were coming out of spring, the bass are transitioning away from eating the big 10" and are more prone to eat the smaller version. Overall: this is a great soft plastic product, and can catch you some big fish!
I attached a couple of more pigs I caught this spring fishing the 10" lizard Larry makes on a light Texas rig, fishing a shallow spawning flat.
Thanks again for the great baits Larry.

Hey Larry, I will give you a quick update, I need to place another order.
Just Won the Bass Capital Bassmasters Tournament here in Florida on your 7" Pro-Tour Rattlin Worm - Bloody Fork Color.
Also, I have a Tackle Store that is interested in these things.

Larry, I found your lizards down at Lake Fork, when I went fishing with an old friend Lee Humphries. He turned me on to a couple of bags, and I was so impressed with the results there, I had to take some back home with me.
It was opening day up here in Minnesota, and my friend Paul and I went out to one of our favorite Smallie lakes. Paul asked me what are you going to throw? I proudly said, I'm throwing my Larry the Lizard! He laughed and said, nobody throws a lizard around here.
It was about a minute later, "oh Paul fish on!" It was the first of many. That day we landed 45 Smallies, 35 Large-Mouth, and 47 Pike, all on your 6" Rattlin Larry the Lizards.
It was the best day I have ever experienced fishing.
Dan Luke, IA
Last spring, I was pre-fishing for the Mega Bass Big Bass Tournament on Lake Fork Texas. I was having a tough couple of practice days.
My buddy Mike Nevins and I were fishing a point, pretty close to a couple of other guys, and these guys were catching them left and right! I mean they are on fire. Mike and I watched as they pulled in fish after fish, and to top it off, they had 3 overs! Not one, not two, but 3 overs! If you know anything about Lake Fork, there is a slot limit, you can't keep anything between 16" & 24" long, so fishing a tournament on Lake Fork, to win or come into the money, you have to pull out a 24" or better fish. These guys had 3, within an hour or so.
Mike and I kept watching to see what the heck these guys had on. We could tell it was a green pumpkin lizard, so we started throwing green pumpkin lizards. We didn't catch a thing.
The next day Mike and I went back to the same spot we watched those guys killing at. And low and behold, I found it. It was hanging on a tree branch, but there is was. It was one of those green pumpkin lizards those guys had on, just hanging in a low tree branch.
I grab it up, and threw it on the deck, and continued to fish. Finally having no fish in the boat, I picked up that big 10" lizard up and realized it had a rattle in it. So I tied it on and started to fish with it.
I caught several bass in the 8- 9 1/2 lb range then I lost the lizard I couldn't find any more like it, anywhere. That was 9 months ago. I finally found them, here on Facebook, and I can't tell u how bad I wanted one in the tournament.
I can't emphasize enough how these baits will catch fish in all conditions.
Thank You Larrys Lizards
