Magic Emerald Shiner Minnows
Excellent when properly used
I can't believe all of the complaints...but I can understand them...misuse...using them for catfishing?NO WAY!...
This is like buying a 1" paint brush, attempting to use it to paint a barn and then complaining that it didn't work very well.
Run a shad needle through these, toss them out under a bobber during the white bass spring run in an Iowa river and you will catch fish like carazy.
These are a cross between live and fake bait...better than fake..but not as good as live...but way more convenient than live.
Best application is running water where you would normally us minnows under a bobber. Extremely durable and you'll catch many fish before you'll need a new one.

I bought these thinking when you cut them open the oils would have fish coming from all directions but i was very wrong. I was fishing in cat invested waters and never had a bite. And believe me i tried i went all around the lake and had it in the water for over an hour each time but the only thing i caught was moss and a tree limb. I will never buy this again. And i recommend you dont either.

use in a proper application
if used properly these are as good as gold. i've used these for nearly a decade tipping my jigs when fishing for sauger in the Ohio River and tributaries. of course there is nothing like a live fathead or creek chub, but these increase my bites by a good bit compared to a plain jig head and twister.
sure beats carring a minnow bucket up and down the rip-rap at dam tailraces. and better than reaching down in that fridged cold water in said minnow bucket on a cold winters day.
