Don't listen to the No's.   I will not go into detail here, but the answer is yes.

 

It will mess with the weight transfer system, but it all depends on why you fish SP's.  I only fish them for their profile.  They don't cast any farther than my loaded redfins tho.  Try one and find out.

Well lets put it this way, if you use mineral oil the transfer system will still function, just not as intended.  The quick snap of the weights during the cast is what provides the kinetic energy that gets you casting distance.  They will still move, but just much slower, probably negating the increased weight provided by the oil.

Needlefish with a different profile :)

What would make it different? Basically the same shape as a ss needle. Thats why when sand eels are around the sp really shines..

Again an oversimplification to a point, but all swimmers that wiggle are needlefish with increased wobbles and wiggles.  

 

I like the suppressed wiggle.

We will agree to disagree, tight lines...

:p deal 

 

OP - trial and error - you can load an SP minnow without it becoming a needlefish - that was a tangent, sorry.
