    I know that feeling. I've switched to braided line. It casts forever because the diameter is so thin and is so much stronger than mono line.

    I love them pond minners. The firetiger is my favorite color. I take the splitring off the line tie because it doesnt run as good. I tie a loop knot instead. When the gills start eating bugs on top try the pond minnow on top. Let it land and give it time for the rings to go away. Then shake your rod tip and make more rings around the bait. Sooner or later you will have gills blastin it. Mucho fun! And it almost works as good as a top water fly on a fly rod.

    Thanks for the tip I never thought of fishing it under a float with a splitshot.

    +1...I feel 'em fine on th UL


    I have been using these lures almost exclusively for the past week.....We've been out 3 times last week (for a total of 12 hours) and caught about 50 fish and I didn't really fish too much because I was having enough fun unhooking the ole lady's catch!....I'm sold on 'em!

    We've been catching almost as many smallies as gills/crappie on 'em and even landed one largemouth! I've been catching them with a twithc n' stop method, burning them back to the boat and just trolling slowly.....starting to look like you can't fish these things wrong!
    Learn to not run from your problems....except when your problems are giant boars.

    Yep. Great lure. And you will catch about anything. Various retrieves, stop go, etc. all work. Best thing is you don't have to change bait! :D
