Bass Pro Shops XTS Mini Hopper Crank Baits
We all know what brand these lures are copies of, but these work just as well. Biggest difference in they are a little larger with bigger hooks that sometimes tangle together, but not a big issue. These catch everything from small bream to large bass, and I once caught a 35lb drum on one while crappie fishing.
Last time down we bought a ton of fishing tackle and new kayaks. I'll post a picture of my first outing in the kayak and the result of the minihopper.

Picture that Trout.
I have been trolling a local lake for fifteen years, using this same type of lure and had no doubt it would perform well. On my last trip out I decided to switch my old lure for this new one and what a difference.
With my second pass I, "it", scored: I couldn't believe my eyes. Hooking a nineteen inch 3pound trout the biggest I have ever caught. The remainder of the trip I caught several Crappie, Bass and even a cat fish. The best action I have seen in a hard lure. drives them wild.
They say seeing is believing but I will tell you having one of these in your tackle box is like owning the telescope. And yes I have A picture of that Trout.

Warm days of summer!
Here in New-Brunswick, Canada, in the hot days of summer when the grasshoppers are out and about, this lures rocks! I do a lot of wading, and the river I fish has a few fields that run up to it! There are a few spots where the grass hoppers are all hanging out! That's when I brake out these little lures! I cast where the real grasshoppers are all munching away next to the bank and just let it drift and give it a couple twitches and wait for a hungry brooky to hit it! I found that if you match the hatch as close as possible to the color of the lure, it's like a trout magnet! Give a shot! They work pretty well!
and be safe!

mini hopper some days it catchs fish when no other lure will ....I have
been using them for 4 or 5 years ,, 2004 i caught 2 trophy Rainbow
Trout using the uncle buck's mini hopper " fire tiger" and "yellow"
i cannot say enough about how productive they are if fished properly
and I will continue to use them as long as i can keep on fishing...
