Farthest casting minnow lure in my experience
February 20, 2021
Ordered the 6in Floating (Blue Mackerel). Casts farther than the Bomber Longshot and Xrap-12. I feel like the weights inside shift more smoothly than the other minnow baits. Just give the lure a little shake with the rod to ensure all the weights have gone to the tail end for casting.

Good action with stock treble hooks. Might replace the back treble with a 5/0 VMC Single Inline Hook to get more action.

What size is good for casting distance
1 Answer
Size depends on what you are fishing for and how you are fishing. The heavier and bigger the lure is the further it will cast. If you are looking for distance but are casting a smaller lure, distance depends on rod length mostly.

What is the best way to rig this bait? A coast-lock swivel or line knot on the split ring.
1 Answer
Some of us use a Tactical Angler's clip and some use a loop knot. Different strokes for different folks.

How do you pick a color? Are certain colors better then others?
1 Answer
It is better to try and "match the hatch". Go with colors that are similar to those of the bait in the area. In your area for example, there maybe Boston Mackerel or Pollack around. So I would go with colors similar to them. On the other hand white, black, and yellow are always good too.

What are the different uses between the floating and sinking? Fishing for Stripers?
1 Answer
The floating is for when bait is holding near the surface, The sinking is for when the bait is suspended in the water column.

What are the different applications for the floating verses the sinking? I'm fishing for Stripers. Thanks
1 Answer
The floating will stay on the surface, for when bait is on top. Sinking is for when bait is holding deeper in the water column.
