The morsel sized Strike King Bitsy Pond Minnow is the perfect size for trout, crappie, panfish, and even catfish, largemouth, and smallmouth bass. If you fish tight, winding creeks and small ponds, nothing can beat the unique action, detailed finish, and reflective eyes of the Bitsy Pond Minnow. The design of this ultralight crankbait is almost completely irresistible to fish. At only 1/8oz and 1-1/4” long it is still easy to cast on 2lb and 4lb test line, with plenty of action to entice strikes from weary cold-front fish or times when you think nothing else will work. The small hooks are great for piercing through your targets lips and don’t let go until you get them to the bank or boat, and take a pair of pliers to it.
There are 9 main color patterns available for the Strike King Bitsy Pond Minnow crankbaits. Standard baitfish colors, such as Chartreuse/White, Blue/Chartreuse, Baby Bass, Crawfish, Tennessee and Gizzard Shad are perfect for matching the hatch. When you’re working in dirty water, or need the lure to attract more attention you can go for the Ghost or Firetiger colors.
How To Work Strike King Bitsy Pond Minnow Crankbaits
There are times when it seems like the fish in small streams and ponds won’t take any type of lure that you throw at them. This is the time when the Bitsy Pond Minnow crankbait comes to life. Cast it out and retrieve it over areas where you think fish are holding, and wait for the drag to start singing. If you don’t get strikes, try varying the speed of your retrieve or allowing it to sit just after it hits the water, before you start retrieving it back to you. Most times you can entice a strike just by allowing it to stay still, floating lifelessly on the waters surface.
