I have just bought 2 duo tide minnow slim 200mm and after receiving them thought that they were maybe too big. Was just wondering if i am more likely to catch larger bass on these as the smaller bass might not bother with them. Also are bigger lures better at certain times or in certain conditions etc. Was just wanting some other views and experiences.
Thanks
Paul

In my experience of predator fishing (30 years) for various species big slowly worked or wobbled baits or lures does lead to better fish.

I dont like small 'what I call' buzzy lures that send out high pitch vibrations.

I havn't tried the Gatoride yet but when I do invest it wont be the high pitch one.

I have had big Bass on small plugs, and small Bass (8oz) on big plugs. had a 4lb Bass last year that all but swollowed a Duo Tide Minnow 175.

On the bait front all my big bass have come on small baits.

Yes mate,I to have had big fish on small baits '30lbs' and had small fish 'Jacks' on large stuff.
But all I am saying is that over a long period of years I have found that big baits and lures worked slowly have 'for me' and lots of predator anglers that I have known seem to filter out the bigger fish,especially when worked ultra slow.
As we all know big fish dont grow old and big by expending lots of energy.

Hi Nick,

IMHO big Bass seem reluctant to chase medium to fast retrieved lures. However, they do seem to like grabbing slow moved lures (hard or soft) on or near the seabed.

On the bait side I have this unproven theory that big Bass really like to inhale small baits.
