OSP Bent Minnow
The O.S.P Bent Minnow is designed to look like an injured baitfish on the surface of the water. Its unique bent body construction sets it apart from other similar baits on the market, triggering bass to strike and providing a natural, erratic action in which it can dart left or right, up or down, and everything in between. By varying your retrieves, the OSP Bent Minnow can imitate a variety of baitfish situations. When twitched softly a few times and then paused, it looks like a small fish chasing hatching insects. A continuous twitch on the surface of the water produces an action akin to small fish trying to escape a predator, and on a simple retrieve it creates a rolling action similar to exhausted baitfish after spawning. Complete with highly detailed finishes and extremely realistic colors, your imagination sets the limits of what the O.S.P. Bent Minnow can do.

Comments: This is a great lure. Let me start by first saying that you should definitely get the 106 to have good weight for casting. The imitation of dying minnow lying on the side even fools seagulls which had me constantly reeling it away from them. As for fishing it, it takes a minute to learn how to reproduce the same motions because this bait has like four different movements for jerking. I have only caught smallies and potbellies with this lure so far, no other species.

Comments: this is a DEADLY bait. the action that it produces in extremely erratic and natural looking. just think about looking into a river and seeing little minnows flashing and darting in the current, that is what this thing looks like. it will always be in my go-to box for sub surface reaction type baits.

Comments: I have at least 10of these, I cherish these lures, I even rinse them and dry them. Awesome action, I've caught trout, bass, and pickerel with them. They are definitely worth the money. Buy one, try one, buy more, you'll be hooked.

Comments: I got this lure because I have a new-found appreciation for top water fishing. I made my purchase on September 27 and received it one the 29th. Since it's fall I got a chance to fish the river for smallmouth bass. On the third cast I got a nice hit and landed a nice 16 inch smallie, about 3 lbs. There were other smallies present chasing minnows, but I only had an hour of free time to fish. Although I never got another hit, just looking at the incredible action this lure produces was fun. It does take time to learn this lure to make it do certain movements, but I did not have any problems with it fouling. Also, I got the 86 Wakasagi. I preferred to have the 106 Crystal Blue Shiner, but it was backordered and I was impatient. The 86 is very light and doesn't cast far.
Comments: Great bait but does foul easy and take time to get use to.
