They are expensive but great. they will catch just about anything that swims and eats minnows. We throw them offshore for Bonito and have caught tons ofDolphin,Kings ,Spanish, Ajs and Crevalle along with Trout, Reds and Bluefishon them as well.

The crystal minnow magnum in holo/black is a tuna killer, cast or trolled. The green back and sardine patterns are awesome as well

The Crystal Minnow is my #1 go to lure. My best color seems to be black back or green mackeral back. You can use these lures in so many different ways and everyway seems to catch fish.

They are more than worth the money to me.

I use them for sight casting snook and tarpon.

The small ones have very soft hooks and need to be replaced.

I use the crystal minnow deep diver, red head 4". You will have to order them from the company because I can't find anyone that carries them locally. You defintely will have to put heavier trebles on them before you take them out. I use them after the water gets warm and the macks start moving in during the springand summer months. You will catch fish with them nearshore.

I troll these on fairly light equipment and the spanish and kings can't stand it. I have caught redfish and last year a cobia with these plugs. They run just fine with steel leaders or a 7 strand on them.
