The MIMIC MINNOW® SHAD is a miniature swim bait that features a lifelike Baitfish- Image™ shad body and hyperactive "paddletail" that swims and wiggles to mimic alive bait minnow. It sports a highly reflective "holographic" FlashFoil™ body that flashes & shimmers like iridescent fish scales to lure fish from a wide radius. Newly redesigned to provide high performance action and more lifelike appeal. It mimics a minnow and fools 'em!
Without a doubt one of the most productive baits I have ever come across... bass, crappie, walleye, drum, catfish, bluegill, smallmouth bass, and more.. amazing the amount of different species I've caught. 1/8 oz Silver Shiner produces the best... keep them with me where ever I go... if I had one lure to catch a fish... this is the one.
Hi I love these mimic minnows and really like the 1/32 size for crappies. Unfortunately I ordered twice and each time i received the wrong size , too large. The I called customer service and they claim they dont even carry the ones I ordered. But now I see them on the website, so not sure what to think. Northland please get your act together, great product, been ordering for years never had a problem till now.
By Far The Best Lure I have Ever Used For Catching Walleye, Largemouth Bass & Crappie! I have caught My Personal Best Walleye, Bass & Crappie Off Of The Firetiger Mimic Minnow! Works Great Jigging & Retrieving slow!
They catch fish when other baits won't. Way more effective that anything else in my tackle box, including live baits. Great fun using the Mimic Minnows. Also, great website by Northland to buy product on-line. Good job, Northland.
The Mimic Minnow series of baits are the best baits that I have used in Canadian waters. The walleye color is especially effective-I wish it came in a longer size in the 3/8 ounce range. I also wish that Northland would manufacture the yellow mimic minnow with the reddish fins, You sell it in the gamefish kits. The walleyes chewed the hell out of this bait.
I founded 1/16oz silver shiner is the go to bait when i'm fishing small river or below a dam from shore . I'll take 2-3 pks of 2 card in my pants pocket , rod, and a landing net and caught walleyes all year round oh! Fall is the best . Rest of equipments stays in the boat so i don't forget it in the trunk of my car when out in the middle of a lake 3 hrs from my drive way. The Mimmic Minnow Shad, you can't do wrong.
works extremely well in small rivers and streams below a dam andf if I can catch walleyes with the mimic minnow shad that means less equipment and enjoy the day. If only I can purchase just the plastic body and use a sinking jig for weight because I end up taking it off the jig that comes with it which is got hook and rip part of the body.
