In collaboration with raWr Fishing, we’re proud to present the Bait Finesse Empire Shimmy Minnow.
This small pencil-like lure has a great horizontal shimmy on the fall and retrieve. Cast this lure parallel to structure, let it shimmy its way down to depth, and then slow roll it back to you. Its side-to-side shimmy reflects sunlight and creates a subtle and alluring target for any species of predatory fish to hone in on. The Shimmy Minnow comes in a variety of colors, and everyone has a unique UV coating that flashes a display of brilliant iridescence in the sunlight. For a truly wild color choice check out “Tinsel Twitcher”, and if you need something a little more natural have a look at “Yummy Yamame”. Scroll through some of our images to see this lure in action and under various lighting conditions.
The Shimmy Minnow comes equipped with a single Japanese style assist hook from the factory, and we include an extra treble hook in the box so you can swap it out if needed.
Fish this lure on a 3-5lb fluorocarbon line to get a great sink rate and maintain the horizontal fall that gives it its Shimmy name. For the best action and easy lure swaps, we recommend using a C’ultiva Silent Quick Snap, or a loop knot to connect the Shimmy Minnow to your line.
