Staple in the bay area

The larger model is used by almost everyone I know in the surf during the striper run. This model works great in the bay and at night to avoid 'shakers'. Casts really well.

Excellent action in the surf

The Daiwa 6" Salt Pro Minnows are effective in the surf because of their suspending characteristic. They stay in the strike zone longer than a full floating or full sinking minnow imitation. Sometimes it takes just a twitch to draw a strike from a striped bass. The weight distribution system also extends their casting distance.
ProsReasonably priced and durable.

I got my hands one one of these and I must say, extremely impressive. Casts like a bullet and catches fish like nothing else. Larger than the standard model and perfect for slightly more moderate conditions. A+

I use the sinking in deeper water where I need to get down when the fish are hanging low. This lure produces well in deep drops and in channels. All the models of SP minnows work exceptionally well. Use the sinking in deeper water and you'll catch more fish.
ConsFactory hooks need to be upgraded.
August 5, 2016
This is my number one lure to throw. I don't even take it off my line most of the time. Casts great! Amazed at the size of the fish ill catch on this lure.
ProsCasts well, catches fish
ConsFactory hooks need an upgrade.

This has become a stable on the beaches of long island. And my go to lure in the fall for bass on the south shore, If the fish are around the will hit this lure almost every time.
Consstandard hooks are a bit weak.
Great lure for bass and blues

This lure is many times the first out of my plug bag. Decent casting and great action. I've had bass to 20lbs fall to this lure. Change out the hooks and split rings as they tend to be weak.
ProsGreat assortment of colors Decent casting Versatile under different conditions Inexpensive
ConsHooks and split rings are weak.

This lure has been very productive for me this year. I mainly fish at night from jettys and beaches and this is my go to lure. A slow retrieve in the current with a few twitches and hold on! I use the floaters and change out the split rings and use VMC 9626 4X 2/0 hooks.
Prosfloaters great lure

Cast very far
June 17, 2016
I'm surprised as to how long I can cast this lure, even though am only using 16lb mono, was able to cast the lure far to cover more and more space. Quality was good considering its not JDM. Swims and suspends well. Not that heavy when reeling in from a far cast, which was a plus, because it lessened the fatigue especially when casting all day long. Overall nice swim action and casts very far.
ProsSwims nice and casts very far
ConsPaint finish easly scratched

The Daiwa SP Minnow is a must have surf lure. Casts great, awesome action and catches fish. I upgrade the hooks to VMC 9626 and the split rings to 90lb Spro.
Catches Stripers from NH down to DE

I have used various colors and styles from the beached of NH down to DE and produces fish. As others have mentioned the hardware on them is not the greatest so i replace the hooks.

also an excellent trolling lure for freshwater!
March 24, 2016
Most of these reviews concern surf casting for striped bass - I haven't done any of that but inland in the Great Lakes region this is an outstanding trolling lure for introduced Pacific salmon spp., Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout - here again, the durability and strength of the lure withstands powerful strikes and thrashing about, and its action, rattle and flash are particularly effective in attracting widely scattered fish in open water. Yo-Zuri beats Rapala every day in this situation. The lure is also good for Muskellunge.
ProsQuality, durability, lively wobble-action, flash and realism.
ConsAn expensive lure - it's use should be avoided in snaggy areas.

Proven Fish Catcher

Have fished many colors and weight variations - floating, sinking, slow sink and fast sink bullet. All productive in appropriate applications. Standard floating model has become an affordable staple in nearly every north-eastern surf-casters plug bag. Black, bone / white, mackerel, chicken scratch, wonder-bread / pearl, sardine, shiner, translucent green, sand-eel - have all caught fish for me. Sinking and Bullet models work better in moderate - heavier current, sweep, and/or wave action and the Bullets seem to need faster retrieve or current do get the S swimming action going - regular SP minnows wiggle tighter and will do so at slower retrieve. Mackerel and bone / pearl (white) SPs and Bullets, with upgraded hard-ware have caught bass up to 25lbs for me in Cape Cod Canal and all colors (esp. Blurple, white, chicken-scratch at night) have produced for me at night from South County Rhode Island breachways to North Shore Mass. and NH seacoast sand beaches and rocky shorelines. Replacing factory hardware with stronger (3-4X VMC, 2/0 or 3/0) hooks and split rings is necessary for targeting bigger fish, especially in current, but may slow down the lures action, which may be desirable to some - opinions vary. SPs do track better and stay stable in heavier current conditions than many lighter weight "Finnish"/ minnow plugs. SPs also cast much better (internal weight transfer) than many similar sized plugs.
ProsCastability Stability in rough water Fish-catching action & color patterns
ConsNeed to upgrade factory hard-ware or risk losing nice fish

The diawa salt minnow is a staple for my fall striper fishing. When fish are feeding in the top 10' of the water column a hard jerkbait can be a great option, especially if bluefish are in the mix. While I throw many brands of jerkbaits for bay rockfish, the 6" suspended diawa salt minnow stands out in its ability to catch quality fish. As a light tackle guy I appreciate It's castability, action, finish and hardware. You can jerk and reel to cover water quickly or slow down and jerk-jerk-jerk reel and it practically dances in place staying in the strike zone longer. One of the major draws to this bait is its size, rock fish and sea trout are not afraid of big baits so increase your chances of catching big fish by throwing a big bait! If your not sure what color/finish to go with try the green laser or bone.

Diawa Lures floating or sinking how to access? Floating?
If you look at the order chart for these lures, you can see if they are floating or sinking before you order them. Another option is placing your order over the phone to be sure that you get the ones that you want.
