STORM Kickin' Minnow
Get yourself a few!
I live in northern Utah, and saw the KM at a local shop. It looked a little funny, but I bought it thinking that if nothing else the wipers (hybrid stripers) would pound it. It turns out that the local trout are quit fond of it. I've caught some nice browns, rainbows, cutthroats, plus tigers (brown/brook hybrid) on it. In the Spring & Fall when the trout are up shallow, this lure nails them. The Cutts are especially found of it. A buddy and I got two 25", 5lb+ cutts on it in back to back trips (see pic of my buddys cutt with the KM down its throat!) Strangely I haven't done too well on the bass with it, but have caught a few, plus some Tiger Muskies, and the wipers just slam it. I picked up one that went 4 pounds and the very next one went 5 1/4. Considering that the wipers had only been in that lake four years, they were probably two of the biggest ones in there. My best producing colors are the shad, perch, and bunker in the 4" size. These are hard to beat at certian times of the year around here. I have had only one get ripped apart, but they do tend to foul the treble hook, and you will miss some fish. I would love to see Strom do the rainbow trout, and a crappie pattern in the 4 inch size. Get a few and try them out!

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.

KING OF THE LURE!!!!!!!!!!
I love this lure simply because this lure catch fish, you can see the proof, this catch is in the middle of faburary when fish is not chasing the lure like in spring or summer, but this lure defy the fishing wisdom, fish love them and cannot resist the action and chase them and hit them really hard you want to hold on to your rod, This thing wiggles like real fish and soft plastic body looks like real minnow, and so far this lure holding up pretty good, i went again after couple of days with same lure and caught another 3 1/2 pounder cannot complain like some other review i read that plastic body tear apart after two three strikes,if it does tear apart i will still use this and catch fish rather buy expensive one and catch nothing,do yourself a favor buy these in diffren colors and sizes you won't regret it, best deal for the price. I cught 4 Bass in winter so far with same lure and all of tham are from 2 1/2 to 4 pounds, cannot wait to use this in early spring and hopfully catch a trophy Bass.
