hrough four-plus seasons on the
Bassmaster Elite Series, Mississippi pro
Brock Mosley has quickly made a name for himself, most notably by finishing 4th in the
2020 Angler of the Year race.
That campaign included top-10 performances
at the St. Lawrence, Champlain and Lake Fork,
which garnered him valuable television time, much
of it slinging a JackHammer. Even though he’s not
sponsored by Z-Man, it’s a bait that has become closely associated with his meteoric rise as an angler.
The untold story, however, lies with a bait that’s not quite so new to the scene as the bladed jig in general or the JackHammer in particular – it’s the Rat-L-Trap, which was around before the 32-year-old pro was born, and will still be catching bass long after everyone reading this is gone.
