Colt sniper vs sp minnow

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Was out fishing with the guys and was told that the colt out casts the sp minnow.  I’d this true and is it enough to justify me scoring a few colts.  And more importantly do the fish like them as well as the sp?  Any comparative info would be appreciated.  Thanks Charlie, king of small bass.

I fish them both, in different sizes. The DSPM I like best is the sink version of the original size, for catching that is. All cast very well. The smaller DSPM and CS seem to really, may be a combo of weighting and perfect size match. Different action, different pug. Hardware on the CS is good right out of the box. I change out the rear trebles on both for siwash singles.

I’ve been an sp minnow fan boy but these days the colt sniper comes out of my bag earlier and more often. I’m commonly casting in a 10-15mph cross wind and the CS casts much better than the sp. 


i fish the slow sinking 120 both on the beach and in heavy current. You can straight retrieve slowly with a little wobble or jerk and let it sink back to the bottom. 


Change the hooks!!!!

Can anyone advise how high in the water column the colt sniper swims?

I would like know the same...   Doe the Colt Sniper run deeper or shallower than the Sp Minnow.     If it runs shallower, might want to compare it with the Hydro Minnow

Fishem' on a straight retrieve or as a jerkbait.....what say you.

I've had great results worked both ways..

a slow rolling straight retrieve works well at times.  While a more sporadic jerkbait style retrieve with long pauses is deadly a triggering a bite other times.. in retrospect, I've probably had more action using it jerkbait style, they always seem to slam it on the pause..
