STORM® Kickin' Minnow
Great lure for me first time used
I opened the 6 " Shad color and, on my 7th toss of the morning, got a 38 inch musky to follow and eventually hit the bait while doing a figure 8. The lure has a great weight to be cast with 40lbs braid on a windy day and the action is fantastic. It looked as good in the 8s as on a straight retrieve. The bill does catch some cabbage but that is where this fish was. I The bait was undamaged following my catch although like all soft baits, might have a shorter lifespan. I am buying a few other colors.

Well I bought a 4 inch all white model and I loved the swimming action, it wobbles beautifully its balanced nice and doesn't sink too fast. Its caught plenty of LM and SM bass along with stripers. The only reason it got 3 stars was because when I was fishing it on the San Joaquin River I snagged into a MONSTER SALMON. I was fighting it for about 5 minutes until I felt the line go limp and I reeled it still feeling the vibrating wobbling action of the bait. I thought the hook popped out of the fishes mouth, turned out the Salmon bit this thing in half and all I was left with was a wobbling fish head without a hook. These are great for bass, and striper, but if targeting fish with strong jaws I wouldn't recommend em cuz they will get bit in half and you will be left heartbroken at the fact that you have a "One that got away" story instead of a picture of u holding a monster fish.

These are styled to appeal to fishermen - not fish. Just look at the "angry" eyes - if I'm a fish, do you think I'm hunting ANGRY food?!? NO! I want scared food!
In all seriousness, these are simply too expensive and not especially durable when used for toothy critters. I also wish there was more than one hook. However, the color options are great, and the side to side action is pretty good.
I really like some of Storm's other products... this one is just not that impressive.

These are very life like and have fantastic action in the water. They hold up pretty good for toothless fish like bass. I plan on targeting musky this year, several friends of mine say they work fantastic for Musky. If i only get one use per musky, ill pay 8 bucks any day.
