Johnson™ Silver Minnow™ is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Pike in the weeds I took about 20 Johnson Silver minnows to Family Lake in Manitoba in June. I also took a full tackle box of very other conceivable lure. I used, and caught fish, on Silver Minnows. It is by far the easiest bait to fish in the weeds, and caught lots of big fish. My personal best on this trip was a 42 1/2" monster pike. I'm heading back to the same place in two weeks, and restocked with more Silver Minnows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever for any fish After my grand father passed i was lucky enough to get his tackle box.. i always remember him using the silver minnow and showing us up on anything we fished for.. luckily they both where in the box still... needless to say that spring i went out walleye fishing.. wasn't catching nothing off night crawlers so decided to use the old silver minnow.. not really wanting to because of keep sack purposes.. well within 5 minutes i had landed a 12 pound and a 6 pounder.. thanks gramps.. needless to say i purchased my own and hung up the 2 i got from him..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true weedless lure I have used the Johnson minnows for more than 60 years and have never found any bait that is more weedless. I bought several of the largest size and have been catching big Muskies in the thick cabbage weeds. The color that I like best is GOLD. I am a Musky Guide and have my clients use the big Johnson minnows in the weeds and lily pads. They are surprised and shocked that Muskies hit these baits and that they can fish the heavy cover with no snags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "must have" lure I hadn't used a spoon in years. I saw a Silver Minnow (in black) and thought I'd try it. So glad I did. I fish stained water and use a black/blue flake trailer and seldom fail to catch at least one largemouth. Even caught one on the fall the other day. It's always the first bait I cast. I'll never go fishing without one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used these baits for years, when Johnson made 'em. Great weedless bait. Own some now from Berkley, I like the colours available. Caught lots of big bass on both. I cut the flat end off the wire weed guard. Then bend it around a barrell swivel, and a spinner blaid attatched. It has a good flash, and the spoon still wobbles niceley. When dropped in a helicopter spin, the blade spins straight up, and the spoon wobbles a nice arc on the way to bottom. Use heavy action rods, and heavy line in thick weeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Leave Home without It I have caught more Redfish on this bait than anything else. Caught plenty of Bass too. I never go fishing without at least 2 of these in my tackle box. Usually Gold 1/4-1/2 oz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta Have it in the box!! This is one of the few "Gotta Have It" baits that are out there. These lures have been catching fish for DECADES and will be still catching them when a lot of the "latest and greatest" have been forgotten. Silver Spoons, Rapala and Plastic Worms...; You have a tackle box for fresh water, salt water, deep water and shallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome spoon Bowrowed a gold 3/4 oz. Gold Johnson from a friend while in Canada at the beginning of August and tipped it with a 5 " black W/blue flakes twister tails with outstanding results. Had such good results I purchased a silver and gold from 1/16 oz. all the way up to 3/4oz. When I got home.
