Bass Pro Shops XTS Mini Minnow Crank Bait
This is a truly great lure, the sunnies love it, they gobble it right up. I caught some monster sunfish on this baby, and my pal even caught some white and yeller perch on her......doesnt cast well tho.

this bait get me some good bites but it doesn't have a good hook up: bites ratio, I've tried to put a bigger hook on it but it ruins the action

INCRDIBLE TINY CRANKBAIT
I tried this 'lil bugger yesterday on one of my favorite ponds yesterday (3/23/12). WOW, what a plesant surprise to see how many fish couldn't help but clobber this mini crankbait (silver color)! Rock bass, Bluegills and Largmouth all took turns and slamming this 'lil guy! Most got stung by the treble and others missed, due to the lack of a tail hook.. Now I must admit that I'm a diehard Rapala man, but picked up a few of these guys during the BPS Spring Fishing Classic on a whim...GREAT CHOICE! Now as I do with all of my lures, I changed out the factory treble and split ring. For this lure, I made that changes to the Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Rick Clunn Signature™ Series Rings & an Eagle Claw® Lazer Sharp 2X Treble Hook.. The combined weight of these upgrades also caused this lure to suspend ever so slightly with a slooow rise back to the surface. I think this modified action helped provoke MANY violent strikes from the panfish to bass. One other modification I did, was to take a red Sharpie and created a red line along the molded gill flap on the lure; to create the illusion of a gill showing through the open gill flap...just a bit more realism. I can't wait to try these on my favorite streams and rivers! I know the Smallies will crush these cranks!!! GO GET SOME!!!
