Yo Zuri Crystal Minnows


Recommended Posts

Does anyone use Yo Zuri crank baits. If so, which colors, size, etc?

Thanks!!

Yes, I use them on Mille Lacs. I use both the deep divers (use them right along side reef runners). I use the suspending crystal minnows in the biggest size when trolling the rocks in the fall.

I owe my biggest Mille Lacs walleye (30") to a suspending crystal minnow. I still like husky jerks at slower speeds but I really like the action on the crystal minnows at speeds of 2 mph or higher.

So, think of the deep divers as something to try with reef runners or other deep divers, and the shallow suspending ones as something to try with husky jerks.

Any idea how deep the deep diver will run? I just picked one up cause it looked "good".Haven't used though cause I have no idea on it's running depth.

Thx

Do any of the Yo-Zuri lures suspend? I have had a lot of luck on Mille Lacs with suspending sicks for Smallmouths. Last trip I lost my best one it was a Kevin Van Damm suspending Excalibur stick...not made anymore!!Excalibur now makes one called a Ghost Minnow, does anyone know where in the Twin Cities I can pick these up?

      6/2/21     Catching lots of walleyes and bonus smallies on Mille Lacs. On shallow to mid-depth rocks the first few weeks, now deep gravel or mud when it is calm/clear and mid-depth rocks when it is windy and cloudy. Caught several of the elusive slot fish during the open period, kept and ate a few. Catch and release now and remember closed walleye fishing and no live bait July 1-15. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      6/16/21     Catching bass, pike, sunfish, and crappies on west Metro area lakes. Starting to see a few muskies as well. Water temps in the low to upper 70s depending on the lake. Still catching fish in shallow to mid-depth depending on the lake. Good luck and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Congrats!  Bummer that the dead fish was the difference especially if it was healthy and swimming when you entered the bay!  What weight did you have pre deductions and what was your fish/weight breakdown?  Curious what people were catching... Did you fish the same spots on tourney day as you did in prefishing? and if you don't mind sharing did you fish crosslake or make it out to whitefish?  Sorry for the questions but I always am interested on the where, how, and how many in this tourney but never stick around for the long drawn out awards handout...

      Got back yesterday.  Found some really nice bass and a lot of them, both large and small mouth in the 15"-17" range.  Found a couple of walleye, 14" and 15".  Had a great time as usual and the weather was calm for much of the time we were there.  Had most success with slip bobber and leeches/crawlers.

      Headed up this afternoon for a solo weekend. Throwing for Musky but might pull some cranks or spinners and see what happens.

      I have them on the cabin. Last night out fishing in Wakemup saw lots of clouds on the graph. Marking some fish, but no takers. Saw a guy catch a couple walleye's out there.

      That's a cool catch! I caught an old ugly stick last year by trout portage. I found an old boat with side scan by comet as well.

      Anyone having any luck?  From almost all reports i've read it's been pretty SLOW all year.  Headed up with a group tomorrow for a week, and will be sure to report back what we find.

      So no bites so far. Did see a bank fisherman catch a rainbow so I asked what he was using. Same thing as me... hopefully today is better!
