Yo-Zuri Crystal 3D Minnow - Floating
Okay, so, it costs quite a bit! The price is the only reason I don't rate this at 5 stars. And, let's be realistic: I'd rather pay this money for a lure that catches fish and holds together rather than $20.00 for Lucky Craft lures that don't hold up and run funny, like the Pointer line.
The 3D Crystal minnow has great action, astonishing finishes, especially under water, as the colors shift and change, and hold up well. And they catch fish: even sluggish suspended bass will chase this thing down if they see it swimming along above them. At 3 feet of diving depth, I can be fairly confident that I can fish an area and not hang the lure up in submerged cover, so long as I know that said cover is deeper than 3 feet, because my frugal Scottish blood boils if I lose a $14 lure!!!
They also cast well and accurately, which is very important to me when fishing near bank areas where there are overhanging tree limbs and shrubs because, again, my heart can't take the loss of expensive lures. Overall, I think these are worth the price if used carefully, and the fish really love them. So, buy one and check it out...You will probably buy more, as I did.
