BOOYAH Mini Shad Spinnerbaits
Best Spinnerbait on the market
You want to catch big fish. This is the lure you can do it with. I bought one of these one year ago and the first time i used it i caught 16 bass in less than an hour(2 were over 7 pounds). Now i always have this lure tied on and still catch fish every time i use it. I now own 4 of these baits in the same color because the people that i fish with get mad when they cant catch nothing and im absolutly wearing the bass out.

After having some very good results with the Super Shad Spinnerbaits I thought I would try the Mini with my spinning gear on some of the smaller waters and some choke points in my local lake.
Lots of current and cool water coming over a small dam into a couple of weedy canals was the place and after taking a few fish on a drop shot rig the bite went off. I had the white version of the Mini in my pocket so I thought it would at least be fun to give it a try.
I caught a small bass on the first cast into the canal and then after moving up to the dam I started flipping the Mini across the canal and through the water coming over the dam. 4 cast 4 fish...in a row. None of the bass will be featured in the hawg rolls for a long time yet, but still it was impressive.
This spinnerbait cast well, comes through cover very well, and even avoided hanging up when I cast it accross a canal into the vegitation on the far bank in order to slide it down into the water quietly. Hook-ups were solid, and I only missed one fish (I think he swirled on it, but didn't actually go after it). The Mini doesn't have the leverage system hooks which is either a bad thing or a good thing depending on preferences, personally I wish it had it. The Mini also works slow well and it gets up and running quickly. It doesn't take a lot to start the blades spinning.
I'll be buying a few spares.

Booyah Mini Shad Spinnerbait
To start off, this spinnerbait is a good spinnerbait. It looks very good in the water and it tracks straight. I was using this at a lake that I had never fished before and I had waded out about 10 or 15 feet from shore. This section of the lake was fairly windy so that is why I chose to use this. After about 30 minutes or so, BOOM! I had hooked about a three pounder. I was excited and saddened at the same time. I was saddened because the wire with the blades had bent out of shape, and I never have luck after I have to bend the wire back. If Booyah can fix the problem of bending wires, this product would receive 5 stars. Until they do, it gets 4. I used color number 13 (Chartruese Glimmer).

Small, but mighty
I've caught many nice bass on this, plus lots of Northern Pike. But, last year, something else happened. I was casting into a lily pad bed in a smaller Minnesota lake. Our of the corner of my eye, I saw a big swirl just outside the pads. So, I cast past it and started the retrieve. Bam! It was a 36 inch muskie. Even with the light tackle, I got the beast to the boat for release. Can't remember the color pattern. Ruined the Mini Shad, but it was worth it. I always have a very light 6" steel leader on, so it was all good.
