Rated 5 out of 5 by bassyintallahassee Best "little bait" These little things work great for bass, crappie and bluegills when nothing else does. Because they are small and have a great swimming action just like a little minnow trying to escape, I have watched schooling bass fight over them. However, like the other review says they are a bit difficult to cast, but you can't have small and heavy in the same topwater lure! I was using a 5'6" UL spinning tackle with 10 lb braid (like sewing thread almost) and could only cast about 25 feet -- but that was enough to fill the stringer! January 28, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Butterfieldfb10 Great For the Whole family I bought a bunch of these for the kids, and they never want to use anything diffrent now. From sunnies to little muskies, this lure can catch it all. The price can not be better, I recomend color #37 for best results. January 6, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by shawmeslayer GREAT 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. November 14, 2006

Details:I want to know what the actual weight of these things is. On the package I saw at BPS it said 1/16oz. But in the description for the lure here on the website it says 1/6oz. And on the order specifications here on the website it says 3/16oz. What is the actual weight???
Details:and do they work good for small trout?
A:Dives about 2". If you stop retrieving, they float to top, which the fish seem to like.

A:It really depends on the forage in your body of water. For me, I fish in farm ponds, and small lakes, I would choose 12 and 52. They look like the bass, sunnies, and minnows around me. I would suggest those two.
