    Ok we all know how well the smaller tide minnows perform but I want to know if any of you have had any sustained success with the big boy of the range?
    If so what kind of conditions does it seem to work best in?
    Does it produce a better stamp of fish?
    Or is it just too big to use effectively for our bass?

    Any thoughts, ideas and advice great fully received!

    Cheers Nath

    Cheers Richie.
    I know bass are greedy buggers and hit big lures.
    I guess I'm wondering when you'd clip one on instead of a 145sld for instance.

    They are the best shallow diving lure in the world, they are not a tribute!! They are very popular lures with the guys that use them, in fact a friend/customer of mine in Alderney bought 5 of them today from me all the same colour D99DM, he reckons he cant catch on anything else but the 200 at the moment and that includes all his softies.

    The story of the one that got away, biggest Bass I have ever hooked into, it lead me a merry dance then swam very fast towards me (I thought it had fallen off for a few seconds) and promptly went under my boat (they do this often so I was ready for it) but as I dipped my rod so the line could miss the engine I see an Oyster cage about 6 ft below the boat......ping!! Clever fish, it saw the cage and aimed for it from about 40 yards away.

    These were caught that day and the day after, on the 200 too, just under 4lb and just over 7lb.
