Sometimes when I see a lot of lures on the market I just wonder what the fish see in them. It is not that they do not work, but you just can not place a finger on why a fish would be attracted to something so unrealistic. However, the Money Minnow is exactly opposite of that. Each time I watch the action this bait produces in the water as I retrieve it I can see exactly why they would be attracted to it.

With a slow retrieval, the paddle tail allows the bait to sway back and forth which produces something like a fast paced realistic movement. Therefore, you still have enough action to attract those lazy bass or pike, but keeping in line with something that looks very much like a minnow.

The Money Minnow is great for heavy brush and weeds. The Money Minnow comes with a pocket underneath where in the right setup the hook can set to keep it away from the weeds. However, when a fish strikes it, the hook is extremely functional because it has no material to push through before it becomes effective like you have with a lot of plastic worms.

Aside from the standard Money Minnow, there is also a Fat Money Minnow version which still has all the same great features, but adds a second slot which is used to place nail weights into it. This may allow you to fish deeper or swift moving water with the Fat Money Minnow.

The two size options are 3 ½ inch or 5 inch. The 5 inch is a fairly big bait which means that you probably will not find any small fish biting. This may be what you are looking for though. If you only want to catch a large fish, the five inch may be the way to go.
