The “Original Weedless Wonder” is one of the cleanest baits you could have in your tackle box. Johnson Fishing’s Silver Minnow has a 35-degree wobble range but does not roll and twist the line. Its brass blade is designed for long casts, while the pure silver plate makes for a brighter flash than brass or chrome spoons.

Johnson’s newest minnow is also available with a 24k gold plate.

The suggested retail price is $2.99 to $5.29. Visit johnsonfishing.com.
