"Texas Rattler has really helped my success in my tournament trail, especially in deeper water and windy days, the sound the rattle puts out is a must when fishing these conditions, add the durability and action of KDen lures and you have a deadly weapon to catch fish! Tight lines! "

"Texas Rattler jig heads has been pivotal in the quality of fish I’ve landed. Literally called in my PB trout at 32 inches and a couple more "Dirty 30" trout as well, and countless nice reds! These jig heads have made a huge impact on the water for me landing amazing fish rattling them in! An asset that stays in my tackle box at all times!"

"Innovative products, great prices and professionally made"
"Best jig heads ever. Be sure to use the ones with gold eyes. Thank you Rex, they produce fish bites. 😊"
"In the aged time I have been using Rex’s Texas Rattler Jigs I have not only studied the colors and eyes on them that allow distinct light through them to illuminate the water to catch inshore fish triggered aggression to strike but I have also noticed the strong accurate aggressive strike the fish show when the lure attracts them to the sound of the rattles in the jig head. Wether it be minor or a major I have noticed far less slaps at lures or fish hooked in top middle or bottom middle of mouth showing a slight eating habit but more solid hook sets leading to jig head being inhaled by trout and reds along with flounder in the solid part of the mouth in the side, fully committed aggressive strike. The color patterns and rattles I have said time and time again simply work and force these fish we are all after to come back time and time again to commit to TEXAS RATTLERS JIGS & SPOONS ."

"Rex and the folks at Texas Rattler produce great fishing products and are Great Texans who take extreme pride in their products! Always very responsive and ship SUPER FAST!
If you're like me and want to support local, small business owners, I can't think of a better one than Rex Hoyt! He is a true Texas Coast Legend, after fighting for his life last year and winning, there is no time better than now to support his Company! He doesn't just take people's money, he also promotes young fishermen/women across the entire Gulf Coast that use his lures/jigs to help boost their presence as well!"
"Texas Rattler Jig Heads. I have been using this amazing product for the last 6+ months and let me tell you what a difference it has made especially in helping to trigger some bites on tough days. This early spring when high-pressure systems moved trout into the deep and pretty much went into lock jaw mode, I decided I needed to do something different. I needed a presentation that would get the attention of a nearby predatory fish.
Texas Rattling Jig heads make a unique rattle when bumped off the rocks or shell of the bottom of the flats when targeting trout or redfish. Think of the noise that crabs and small creatures make while moving about in areas that hold solid fish and the ever-so-subtle rattle of some pebbles or shell made when a crab walks over it, can trigger a reaction strike of a trout, redfish, or flounder. From the time I have come into using these jig heads it has helped my customers and myself catch more fish in areas where we struggled to before."
• Capt. Oscar Estringel, Rockport - Baffin Bay - Lower Laguna, 7-23-2023
"Using the Texas rattling jig head has significantly enhanced my fishing experience. Its unique rattling sound acts as a potent attractant, enticing predatory fish to strike with greater frequency. As a result, I've noticed an increase in successful catches.
"Additionally, the jig head's ability to prolong the durability of my artificial lure means I can fish longer without interruptions for replacements, optimizing my time on the water."
• Bradley Mikolas, Pro Texas Kayak Tournament Angler, 07-22-2023
"Rex Hoyt introduced me to his unique Rattling Jig Head (Texas Rattler) that has taken the game of artificial to a new level. I used to fish with just any setup for artificial, and it worked, but I never had as much success as I do now. Throwing the Rattling jig in many colors allows the sound and vibrations to travel through the water and pull fish from what I believe a farther distance away. I've caught my personal best 29.5in speckled trout on a Rattling 8th oz Jig along with many tournament grade redfish.
Heck, I even proved that a Texas Rattler rattling mud minnow spoon works well in muddy creek water for your big redfish in February.
Trout Candy 16th oz. jig has been my favorite this past year. Works in all conditions.
When I fish and take clients out, I always offer them a Texas Rattler Jig Head. David Del Toro, a great client of mine for artificial, has gotten hooked on the Texas Rattler ever since he fished side by side with me and watched me hammer the trout and hook big reds. This was when the bite is slow, but the Rattler with a small dose of 'Real Deal' gets the job done. If I'm using artificial, I'm using a Texas Rattler !"
• Capt. Matthew Valadez, Matt's Fishing Adventures charters in Rockport, Texas, 7-21-2023
"I have been using TEXAS RATTLER for a year now. What do I love? The rattle in my jigs, it really gets their attention.
I also use the weedless single hook spoons in gold, and croaker. They are very durable. It's a must in the tackle box."
• Capt. Jessica Honovic, Florida, 8.27.2023
"Trout Candy please. Snook couldn’t resist ‘‘em. I use the '3D Gold' & the 'Trout Candy' jigs was on fire last night. I can definitely respect that you have a great product and a good honest living doing it."
• Ruben Fonseca II, Lower Laguna, Texas, February 1, 2023
" Hey buddy. I’m gonna be needing some jig heads ... I gonna represent the heck out of Texas Rattler!
I’ve caught red fish with the mud minnow spoon.
Hell yah. I am a true believer in your product! "
