Hydro Minnow fast retrieve

Did you swap out the stock hardware with something a little too heavy?  I don't throw em whole ton but I actually prefer them over SPs for their wobble on a crawling retrieve and their ability to swim a hair higher in the column.  Lost a fish that haunts me on one this year on a crawling retrieve.

I thought it was more of a popper type lure.Either splashes or leaves  a v trail when retrieved slow.Was never to successful with that plug.They do make a larger one and will try that sometime tomorrow.The post above mentioned slow retrieve ,sounds good will give it a try

I did not change the stock hardware.  I was turned onto the plug by the forum, so it's new to me.  Don't get me wrong, I caught two fish on it yesterday, but I feel its not grabbing at slower retrieve speeds.

I saw your other post.  Best new plug for where 'we' fish.  Slow retrieve twitch works just fine.  

 

I specifically talking 6" as that's the one i fish mostly, not the 6.5

Deadly plug for our area. An absolute beast

They arent as "wild' as a SP or bomber. I noticed no need for a fast retrieve with them, same as a mag darter. That subtle wiggle is more than enough.

Over rated plug they swim to high in the water column for me. Dont cast as well as an SP either. 

A lot of my spots are 3' of water.

Do you carry a redfin usually? 

Yup.  White and black.  Loaded and unloaded.  I've been experimenting with a teardrop weight on the back replacing the rear treble.  I will try it out later.
