Description – The Sidewinder Minnow is a slow sinking stickbait designed to mimic an injured baitfish. A streamline design coupled with inline single hooks allow this ¾ oz lure to add more to your cast and cover more water.
Retrieve - For subsurface presentations, allow for a few seconds for lure to slip below the surface. Follow with a slow to medium retrieve adding plenty of quick rod twitches and frequent pauses to mimic a dying baitfish. For a surface presentation, utilize a fast retrieve with fast rod action to achieve a “walk the dog” pattern.
Samson Lures - Enticer Minnow
Type - Topwater/Sub/Sinking
The Enticer Minnow is a long casting versatile lure that can be effectively worked on or just below the surface, where it imitates a fleeing baitfish. This lure is best retrieved at medium to fast speed when targeting pelagics. When targeting bass, work the lure at a slow to medium speed using the rod tip to create a more erratic action.
Gently shaking the rod tip will give an enticing injured fish action to the lure allowing you to slow right down hovering over shallow rocky areas where predatory fish may be present.
Suitable for: striper, bass, GTs, bluefish, tuna, roosterfish, jacks, redfish, mackerel, kingfish, tarpon and most other pelagic species.

Hand turned and finished in MA!
You know what they say about a plug with a big head. If its the Outcast Polaris they’re talking about, we’re certain most of the comments will be how far they cast and how the fish fight each other to get the first bite. This tuned weighted traditional body type delivers the goods with heavenly light yet long range castibility, and frenzied surface scattering action on retrieve. Just don’t expect to retrieve to far. The fish won’t let it pass.

XT model boasts two 3X strong, super-sharp hooks and heavy-duty, saltwater grade hook hangers and split rings.

We also find that the side to side action is easier to attain without the drag from the rear treble.
Spook lures draw vicious top water strikes. No light tackle enthusiast should be without!
