Red Fin Winner When Cotton brought the Cordell Red Fin Minnow to the market even he could not have known what a wide range of fish species this lure could catch. In the smaller sizes bass ( both largemouth & smallmouth ) will slam it either as a twitch bait or on a slow retrieve. With the expansion of the striper and later the hybrid throughout the rivers and resevoirs of the country, the two larger sizes of the Red Fin became the lure of choice. They cannot resist the v-wake of a slow surface retrieve. Your tackle arsenal is not complete without several Red Fins in your box. March 7, 2011
Red Fin stripes the line sides I use the red fin minnow ( blue/chrome) for striped bass on the Chattahoochee River, north of West Point Lake. The lure works great in the swift water of the numerous shoals the river offers. The most productive technique (for me) is a steady retrieve at a moderate speed while paying close attention to the break lines of the current and eddies. I adjust the depth the lure runs by raising and lowering my rod tip. The hooks are not super sharp, but the durability is very good. During this seasons run (2010) I caught 65 stripes ranging from 4 lbs. to 18 lbs. one afternoon in a 2 hour period. I constantly was having to re-bend the hooks back to shape because of the bass taking the lure into the rocks and straightening the expose hooks. My suggestion would be, buy some of these lures and find a break in swift water and hang on, because when stripes hit this lure "it's violent, real violent"...... May 12, 2010
Redfins for seatrout This lure in quite a few of the colors is a seatrout killer on the flats around the space center but you have to fish it aggresively. I've taken a few bass fisherman with me and I always have to make them speed up their retrieves to get strikes. I had a 103 trout day by myself, my grandson and I had a 123 trout day and my nephew and I caught 148 in one morning....ALL on this lure.....but as I said speed and aggresive retrieve are the HOT tickets. Also catch bass on it but not like the trout. Have caught reds with it but not so many. June 1, 2010
Cordell Red Fin Terrific lure for summer fishing in the rivers. Catches largemouth, spots and river stripers. Fish on top making a V in the water and have some healthy line (I use 20lb Trilene Big Game.) Don't worry if the finish peels off in spots, the fish don't care and it might make the lure more effective. Three large treble hooks makes this a difficult lure to extract from the mouth of a 15 lb striper in the middle of a river fishing from a kayak. Boga grip and needle nose pliars a must.

i think the red fin casts better than the floating rapala. a little cheaper two. both will catch fish. the red fin has a super tight wobble that has low resistance. rapala has better color scemes if that matters too you.

No comparison! Floating Rapala is one of the best, if not "THE" best lure of its kind ever made.

The Redfin is an Excellent winter time topwater lure for bass. Work it slowly across the top, making a "V " wake. It can also be twitched in place.Of course, sucess depends on knowing where bass are in the winter time. On my local lake in Tenn, they will be in areas with springs that keep the water temp warmer.

A: 
There are many factors that determine the best lure for a situation. First and formost is the depth the lure runs. As for the "best" it depends on the fish, for any given day one lure's action will be more attractive than any other's. I personally like rougues and rapala's x-rap for bass. Also some lures require different types of rod twitches. Rogues require a longer harder pull than a lucky craft. You can usually tell this by the size and placement of the lip. The smaller it is the lighter the twitch and the closer it is to the nose or line tie also requires a lighter pull. One thing to remeber is to vary your retrieve from faster or harder to shorter lighter ones. Always count off time between these twitches and vary the length of time in between. You can usually count on the cooler the water the lighter twitch and the longer the pause. When the water is below 60 use suspending models and when above 60 use floating ones. Suspending baits can be used in warmer water but you need to move it fast enough so it doens't sink. This sinking will put off a fish from biting. The fish will typically bite on the pause so watch the line for movement. When you set the hook don't slam back, just reel down and sweep to the side. Play the fish out, many times it will have slapped at the lure and may not be hooked real well. Finally the most important thing to remember about working these lures is to have some slack in the line inbetween twitches, this allows for the most action from side to side. It's a lot walking the dog with surface baits just under water.
