Meet SPRO’s Rattle Little John 50 and Rattle Little John MD50

Kennesaw, Georgia – In murky water and low-light conditions, a rattling lure creates sounds for bass to zero in on. The SPRO Little John 50, one of the finest crankbaits on the market, is now even better thanks to a hard steel ball that generates a loud bass-attracting rattle. The SPRO Little John 50, designed by B.A.S.S Elite Series Angler John Crews, is a shallow-running crankbait, deadly when teased across the tops of shallow underwater vegetation. It also excels at targeting suspended bass.

The Rattle Little John 50 (and MD50) Crankbait inherits the best tournament-proven features of the original lure, including a unique lip made from a computer-chip board. An internal steel ball creates a loud hard-rattling sound bass find irresistible. You can cover more water thanks to the lure’s silent weight transfer system. The design translates into unbelievably long casts for this small crankbait.

These compact crankbaits pack a big, bold sound. Rigged with the world’s sharpest trebles made by Gamakatsu, the Rattle Little John 50s are ready to catch fish right out of the package. Both lures weigh ½-ounces and are 50 mm long. The Rattle Little John 50 is tuned to run at 3 -5 feet of water, while the Rattle Little John MD50 runs deeper at 7-9 ft.
