Minnow Shaped Crankbaits

Fishing Tackle | Hard Baits | Crankbaits

These crankbaits are longer and slender.  They simulate a lot of bait fish with this longer profile that is completely different to a sunfish.  Fish such as northern pike, smallmouth bass, muskie, salmon and trout prefer these crankbaits over the shorter, fatter crankbaits.

Tackle Recommendations

Rod, Reel & Line

Most anglers use heavier tackle as these lures are usually considered more of a big fish bait.  You can use medium to heavy action rods and reels with line from 12 to 30 pound test and maybe even heavier for big fish like muskie.
