Bass Pro Shops XTS Mini Minnow Crank Bait
great in shallow waters
Fist i want to start off by saying that i would give it four and half stars if a could.
This bait is great if you are fishing in really
shallow waters, the only thing i would improve is making it dive deeper, at lest 5 1/2 feet, it will dive a about 2 feet at max, and that's not to good if you're fishing at about 3:00 in deep waters. I however did catch a few 8 to 9 inch blue gills, but i would have caught bigger ones if i could dive deeper, i could see them in deeper water, but, sadly the bait would not go deep enough.
I would recommend getting a Bass Pro Shops® Tourney Special Micro Light Mini Crank Baits instead of this, it still super cheep and works much better for bigger, and more fish.

Mini Minnow doesnt just catch mini fish.
After I bought it I took it right out to the lake and had great results. First fish I caught was a four pound trout and later I caught seven largemouth bass. Its very tough and easy to cast for such a small lure. Later after I left I went back to Bass Pro Shops and bought a couple more with different color patterns.

I go freshwater fishing at least 3 times a month and so far I have caught a fish with this lure(gold and black color) every time ive gone (no joke) the only thing I would change about the lure itself is the weight, it is very hard to cast more than a few feet against the wind

Great for sunnys
This is a great lure for panfish. If your a lure angler like me, and you don't enjoy watching a bobber all day long, try this lure. It works well and has good action.
Also I like this lure because it catches the big panfish, unlike bobber fishing where you catch those dinky little panfish.
This lure is very light, make sure your rod and reel outfit will cast this little lure.
