The Rotating Power Minnow from Customs Jigs & Spins resolves a number of issues encountered by walleye anglers, says designer Bob Gillispie.
“One of the long-standing problems with baits in this category is they can twist your line. Our first aim was to offer a bait with a built-in, swiveling eyelet to counteract line twist, eliminating the need for a swivel up your line. It also prevents the bait from snagging on itself,” says Gillispie.
Another common issue with bait offerings in the category was also addressed by the manufacturer.
“We intentionally did away with a nose hook, which can easily snag on the bottom of the ice hole, acting like a lever and pulling the middle and rear hooks out of a walleye’s mouth. We also decided to use treble hooks on the bottom and rear. “
Further features include what is, to the manufacturer’s knowledge, the first built-in rattle chamber. Rather than being glued, the chamber is incorporated in the tail section and cannot fall off. The addition makes it a great bait for walleye anglers fishing stained waters, says Gillispie, who also opted for a small, compact profile to tempt finicky fish.
The RPM3 is 2ins long and weighs 1/4oz and the RPM5 measures 2 3/4ins and weighs 3/8oz. Both are available in 16 glow and non-glow patterns.
