About

TEXAS RATTLER

www.txrattlers.com

Inventor &  Product Info:

The TEXAS RATTLER is a new invention from Capt. Rex Hoyt, the inventor of the original RockPort Rattler in 2003, the Rockport Rattler QuickLock earning a US Patent in 2009 ( US Patent No.: US 7,614,178 B2 ) and the TEXAS RATTLER jighead improves the locking device on his rattling jighead inventions over the last 15 years. The TEXAS RATTLER will have the ability to universally lock a soft plastic onto a jighead without using lead prongs or wire that tears or rips a soft plastic when a fish bites a jighead. The TEXAS RATTLER will be a quicker & better way to thread a soft plastic on a rattling jighead ... without shredding or ripping your expensive soft plastics from fish bites, ... which will save anglers a LOT of $$$ in their fishing endeavors.

TEXAS RATTLER will take advantage of the rattling jighead market Capt. Rex created with his Rockport Rattler invention back in 2003 and the new owners of Rockport Rattler $100,000's of thousand of dollars spent "edcuating anglers on the virtues and enhanced production and quality of fish caught from fishing with a rattling jighead" - from their advertising in every major fishing magazine across the USA the last 5 years since Capt. Rex sold his Rockprt Rattler invention. The TEXAS RATTLER will be the finest jighead on the market, improving on any locking device on any jighead on the market today while providing the same 'rattling sound' that attracts fish. The TEXAS RATTLER will be "Made in the USA" and will create new jobs for Rockport, Texas - a town that lost 65% of it's businesses and homes from Hurricane Harvey 4 months ago. The youth are looking for jobs here in Rockport - your investment will give them a few jobs from Capt. Rex's TEXAS RATTLER's making lures in Rockport, Texas, USA to ship NATIONWIDE !!!!

History of the Rattling Jigheads:

In 2003 Capt. Rex Hoyt introduced the 1st 'rattling' jighead to the market - to help anglers catch more fish via his web site and Tackle Town in Rockport, Texas. Without advertising, the Rockport Rattler became the most popular and productive jig head on the market - nationwide ! Why ? Anglers were catching more fish, bigger fish and more variety of fish than on standard jigheads. Corpus Christi Caller Times Outdoor Sportswriter David Dikes caught his 1st flounder ever on artificial bait using a Rockport Rattler while writing his article on Capt. Rex's Rockport Rattler invention back in August of 2003 after years of grinding on his own and doing fishing articles with outstanding Fishing Guides all across Texas for the CCC Times. And, - as Mr. Sikes headline article read in that Sunday Edition "Rockport Rattler jighead hauls in fish during outing " Why ? To be able to survive, one of the most developed sensory systems on a fish allows it to detect sound and vibration to locate its prey to feed on. Fish have two highly developed sound detecting systems, the Acoustico-Lateralis System, commonly known as the lateral line and it's inner ear. These systems give fish a sense of "distance touch" and ability to detect and locate prey in the murkiest waters and even total darkness. Bass Tourney Anglers started inserting rattles into the bodies of soft plastic baits in the mid 1990's to win a LOT of Bass Tourney $$$. The rattling jigheads that Capt. Rex invented back in 2003 improved this greatly by the way the rattle chamber is imbedded into the lead of the jig head and mated alongside the hook. This gave Capt. Rex's rattling jigheads some very distinct advantages. a rattle cannot come out of the bait & on a strike a lost rattle costs around 40 cents each - ouch !!! Lead and steel are outstanding conductors of sound which will amplify the sound of the rattle outside the soft plastic. Water, also being an exceptional conductor of sound, allows rattling jigheads to be heard from much greater distances. JIGHEAD LOCKING DEVICES: The problems with ALL jigheads on the market today, including screwlocks and Rockport Rattler QuickLocks, is they use a lead prong or a steal wire to 'lock' on the soft plastic to keep it from slipping off of the jighead. Consequently, the current locking devices on ALL jigheads on the market today can rip or tear your soft plastic when a fish strikes or bites it. The TEXAS RATTLER jigheads will solve that problem while universally locking an anglers soft plastic on the anglers jighead.

Risks and challenges

There are no risks other than attracting the start-up capital to buy my supplies in bulk.

The market is there for an improved locking device on a fishing jighead that won't tear expensive soft plastics, ... especially since the costs of soft plastics have gone from ~$5.00 per 10 count to ~$5.00 for a 6 count over the last 10 years from soft plastic lure manufacturers.

I invented the original rattling jigheads, manufactured them, established the 1st market for rattling jigheads in 2003 and marketed them and still have those contacts, loyal customers that are buying Rockport Rattler jigs will now buy my new invention when I start producing the TEXAS RATTLER.

The TEXAS RATTLER is an improvement on every thing I have done to a jighead since 2003, and I have old customers, as well as some new ones, that can't wait to get them and go fishing with them.

We will start production, hire two workers and open our web site for sales as soon as this program is funded so that the product is available for anglers this spirng of 2018.
