    Default Looking for minnow lookalikes

    I have have hunted high and low looking for some soft plastic jigs that look EXACTLY like minnows and Shad. All I can find are shaped like them and a whole bunch of different colors, but nothing that looks exactly like them. I went to a Crappie supply store today that had hundreds of every type and Brand and color of plastic jigs, but none like what Iím looking for. Does anyone know where I can find what Iím looking for?
    I may be getting older but I refuse to grow up.

    Try looking at Bento Bait made by LunkerHunt. They are holographic.

    The most realistic bait I have seen is the Storm Wild Eye Swim Shad:

    That said, how realistic does it need to be? Lots of members here catch plenty of crappie on much less realistic baits in the craziest colors imaginable.

    The most realistic baits I have seen were from a guy located in Japan. I believe he sales them for a buck each and I imagine shipping is not cheap. I will see if I can find the link.
