I have been fishing for about 25 years mostly fly and pop gear trolling, A good friend turned me onto the Maniac 3" Minnow for fall fishing for browns in shallow portions of the local lakes. I have caught more fish on this type of lure than I have ever caught using any other type of fishing lure. It has been amazing how productive these maniac minnows have been the past two years. I have been grateful that Sportsmans Warehouse carries a good supply of the minnow colors cause I have stocked up on everything. Then I tried Ice fishing with the maniac plastic jigs and what a surprise I have been able to catch more fish then my buddies when we go fishing together, Once again the action on the plastic minnows is hard to beat and the fish are attracted to the color and action I think more that other types of bait. Thanks to Sportsmans and Maniac lures for increasing my desire to fish more often and use the Minnow from Maniac.
