When I first started buying lures these were some of the first few I picked up.
If anyones had any joy or not or got any info on these lures let me know....
Went out the other day and was getting me lures to go into my box I take out and was looking at them and I'm not really sure if they'll ever go in the box to come out....
Ive got a few Tide minnows,Zonks,feed shallows so will I ever use them?????
Im also buying more and more into soft lures....Shads,slugs and eels.....

The first is the Yo Zuri mag darter....
Ive got 3 , 2 at 105mm green mackeral & one black and one 125mm gold/orange in colour..Just not sure about them and Ive got the box's and they've never been used so if there no good might get rid of them.The idea seems good...Darting around sub surface,cast well....Just never heard even one decent report on them.

The others a couple of Daiwa Lures....
Ive got 2 Daiwa Chugger minnows one green shiner & one chart rainbow....
Anyone usd them?Decent action?
Then there 2 other lazer green shiners...
Ones the saltiga minnow which is the one I wanted originaly and Ill probably keep,the other is the salt pro 13f...Anyone used this one?Any good?

Then theres 2 Yo Zuri crystal minnows...One holographic black and one in sardine blue....These Ill probably get rid of....

Any thought on any of lures much appreciated and what ppl think of them...
At the moment Im thinking throw them on ebay and see if I can get anywhere near whet was paid with a buy it now as Im putting a couple of multi's one there.

Cheers Nick

Welcome Nick!

The only ones of those I have are the Crystal Minnows. They look like they should do the job for bass but I can't seem to get through the Mackeral and Gars with them.

Nick,
Diawa chuggers are a good useful shallow lure-casts well to. I have changed the hooks as the factory ones are a bit weak (Owner stingers ST46)
Saltiga minnow is a goody-casts like a missile, nice lure depth wise half way between feed shallow and a tide minnow.
Salt Pro, handy larger lure, at 31g casts well. Good for when the bass are on the mackerel later in the year.

Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow, great lure in it's day, but although some other members still do well with it. But I will stick with lures that cast better.
Never used the mag darter, but the mag popper is a must have for me.

Mag darter

Its got an angkled head head - opposite to the mag popper facing downwards.
Meant to float and with a flick dart around and on the retireve not go below 3"
seems a great idea...
Ill keep the mackeral and black and see if the gold one goes...
Reckon ill have to get there and give em a go on the end of the line!!!
