5 ½" Minnows

Every fisherman knows to catch big fish you need larger baits. The 5 ½" Banjo Minnow is perfect for luring out the big ones from cover, off beds, and from the shoreline. Even in open water, fish ATTACK it because it creates a commotion through the water and on the surface. Especially in the wind there is no place you cannot cast it to get it just the right spot. Give it a twitch and let it sink because its larger size allows for a consistent drop through the water that perfectly mimics a minnow in distress that triggers fish to attack!
