To make the Hogy Heavy Minnow, we took molds from our most popular sizes of EPOXY Jig™ Lures, wrapped them in HD Holographic finish and gave them a heavy metal core. These jigs are perfect players to have in your bull-pen to deal with heavy winds or when fish are holding in deeper water.
We ran out of bait so I started vertical jigging a heavy minnow in 50’ of water and caught 2 short muttons in 20 minutes. I applied a fish attractant to the body of the lure to add scent, work well.
I’ve employed this for jigging and casting. It has shined in presence of sand eels. I think the weight and shape combined with action give something a little different. Colors also pop as well. Great multi species lure. Stripes, sea bass, even albies and blues
Haven't tried them yet but expect them to work great for big sea bass on the wrecks we fish often, like other Hogy lures I've purchased.
I catch everything on the heavy minnows, it is my go to for cod and lake trout and works for everything else. The heavy minnow is a great casting lure, it is heavy and compact perfect for distance on windy days. It is a great deep jigging lure, the thicker profile gets deep fast so it is easier to stay in contact with the bottom. This is a metal to keep in your tackle box for windy days, when you need to get out far to breaking fish or need to get deep fast this is my go to jig.
