After several years, I finally lost all of my Rattalurs and couldn’t find them anywhere,” says Monoyoudis. “I did a little research and finally located Phil Yeater and gave him a call in 2007. In a knee-jerk reaction, I offered to buy the company from Phil in an effort to save the Rattalur from going into extinction. We agree on a price and the Rattalur was back on the market.” Monoyoudis has been faithfully producing the original Rattalur through H.C. Baits in White Oak, PA since that time. “I just want to give other young anglers the opportunity to experience the excitement of fishing this amazing topwater lure.” says Monoyoudis.
