Comments: The Bull Minnow is my new favorite Sebile lure for largemouth bass angling. The quality of the Bull Minnow's body, eyes, hardware, and finish are typical of Sebile's very high standards. In particular, the robust treble hooks on the lure do not require replacements since they already have a suitably wide gap, are adequately large for the lure's body, and are extremely sharp. The Bull Minnow is specifically designed for fast retrieves and aggressive fishing techniques. With its weight transfer system, it casts like a bullet. Used as a crank-bait, it has a nice wide wobble on a very fast retrieve and a more subtle but action packed rocking wobble on a moderately fast retrieve, both likely to provoke feeding strikes. Used as a jerk-bait, it swims very erratically when the rod is moved in a quick, sweeping motion, which should be good for provoking reaction strikes when worked with a pause in between jerks. The Smokin' Black Shad color is a very good threadfin shad imitation. Priced at $7.95 it is a bargain considering the high level of quality and the outstanding performance of this lure. The only drawback is that it only comes in in 4 and 5 models, while I would like to see a 3.5, too.
