Starting point of the slim minnow The Tide-Minnow slim 120 has broken the conceptual barrier of the ordinary slim minnows. It not only has a high swimming response in strong currents in estuaries and in strong waves, but also has outstanding casting capabilities which are useful in the surf game. By giving the lure a deep, yet slim and flat body in addition to its thin lip, it stages a very tight rolling action. This gets even inactive fish to bite! Its flight, action, and silhouette have certainly accelerated the popularity of slim lures in the seabass game.
