Just be careful when you use them and wear all of the safety gear you can get on because if they work as good as advertised..., well, just be careful!

Although the infomercial is hokey the basic principle of the banjo minnow system is sound. The corkscrew spring thru the nose of any jerkbait gives the lure unbelievable action. Way better than the texas rig system of burying the hook in the jerkbait. There is hardly a better lure than a jerkbait [shad assassin, exude, zoom super fluke] worked slowly over the grass. If you want a little more distance than what you will get with the bare lure just use the insert weight. The only problem with this system is pinfish will tear the heck out of these soft baits. You will definitely catch fish with these lures. After the pinfish have wrecked all the lures that come with the pack just go anywhere and buy whatever lures you want and use the corkscrews that you will have left over.

i picked up fishing on my own growing up. i saw an infommercial and asked myparents for some on mybirthday when i was in highschool. i caughtfish on em. like it was said in the above post. the system is solid. they are basically just soft jerk baits that allow for more action due to the cork screw into the bait.the screwsallows the body freedom of movement away from any jig head or hook. i never used them in saltwater but ive caughtsmallmouth largemouth white and hybrid bass on them. when you think about it you can take almost any bass lure and use it for reds or specks. they are a versitile lure with great action. Im not saying they are gods gift to the fishing world but they havecaught me some fish. i do believe you can by cork screws onthe market. im not sure what they are called but you attach them to your hook to give youaction. they are called hitch hikers or somethinalong those lines. anyway, just my two cents.
Tight Lines,
