Default My first swimbait

So my weekend plans changed slightly: instead of chasing smallies at Aurora I am going to be chasing wipers and stripers on the White River in Arkansas with my little brother. Needed some big lures so I bought some 5" Yum Money Minnows in Rainbow Trout color. I know there are other and probably better swim baits out there but these should at least get me started!

Check em out! Anyone use these before?

they work great, been hammering the smallies on the same minnow, at my favorite impoundment , the cool thing about them is u can fish them so many different ways, ive had smallies bust on them from the depths of 15ft all the way to the surfice, or u can let them sink, and fish them like a jig, I never seen fish blow up on any other bait like they do on swimbaits! have fun and good luck!

good lure to start. i will suggest you try the shadalicious and the berkley hollow belly. buy bigger weighted EWG that you think.
