NEW HYBRID MINNOW BAIT OFFERS BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
NORTHLAND FISHING TACKLE UNVEILS A SWIMMING MINNOW JIG THAT FISHES LIKE A PUPPET MINNOW, WITH THE SUBTLETY OF SOFT PLASTIC
Bemidji, Minn. – NEW FOR 2020, Northland Fishing Tackle expands its hard bait AND soft-plastic offerings by combining two of their most popular lures. The Rippin’ Minnow sports a gliding action that anglers recognize in the Puppet Minnow, while adding a finesse plastic component for color, attraction, and bite retention.
The Rippin’ Minnow relies on a gliding jighead at the forward part of the bait that propels the entire lure in a darting motion throughout the water column. This recognizable action completely mimics a dying minnow to entice aggressive strikes.
The Rippin’ Minnow departs from most jigging or gliding baits with its lifelike plastic tail. This finesse back-end provides the perfect complement to the aggressive front portion of the bait, giving fish a soft, chewy body that both acts and feels like the real thing. It also allows the bait to fish fast, while maintaining the action anglers love in Northland Tackle soft plastics.
The Rippin’ Minnow excels in a range of applications, from vertical targeting of walleyes on deep structure, to trophy panfish applications along weedlines, and even big predators on timber and rock. It’s a perfect cast and retrieve bait which also fishes well vertically for pinpoint, precision fishing when the bite requires detail and life to the bait.
With an MSRP of $7.39, the Rippin’ Minnow comes ready to fish, one bait per card, with two additional tails in the package. This makes it the perfect go-and-throw combo for any angler looking to simplify the rigging and fishing process, but also offers backup plastics when hungry fish repeatedly attack it. Offered in 12 colors and 4 sizes 3/16 oz. (1/0 hook), 1/4 oz. (2/0 hook), 5/16 oz. (2/0 hook, 1/2 oz. (3/0 hook) there’s a perfect Rippin’ Minnow for any species and situation.
