Bass Pro Shops Tourney Minnow
unbelievably good lures...but
I have used these for two years now, and keep going back for more. In Colorado I have landed huge walleye, big browns and rainbows, smallmouth, and some very large largemouths. Oh...and a good sized channel cat too. The action is great, and i have rarely had to tune them. Best to reel steady with a few rips every now and then with a pause to let is float up slowly. Killer baits for a killer price.
I have had a few fish lost due to broken hooks. All in all...GREAT lure for a good price...but i have learned to replace the hooks with better ones.
With that being said...you still are ahead of the game price wise, and the baits have a completely unique action that triggers bites.

below the surface
These lures work great when the fish are low or in the middle strike zone. After a surface frenzy i always thow one of these minnows and continue the action. May the target be stripped bass, blue fish or weak fish they work. They even do work when the fish are exploding on the surface. When on the surface I prefer the bass pro shops poppers. There is nothing like seeing the water explode and nailing the fish on the surface. I ussually end up lending these to guests on my boat and often have a tough time getting the back.

I was very pleased with the BPS Soon I ordeder however I must say this Minnow lacks in the area's of: Finish, Hook Strength, Durability. A few good snags and over casts into the rip rap and I don't see this lure making it out in one piece. I'd spend the extra 2$ on Rapala. To be fair tho I'm yet to give it, it's day on the water so we shall see. I do however give it a star for: Paint scheme, Price and Sound.

you get what you pay for
these are pretty good lures for the money. they have a good action and are a perfect size. the hook are junk. most of the hooks i have on mine have at least one barb that i can push hard into my finger and they wont pierce the skin. i put new trebles on and have loved them ever since. great value.
