clouser minnows, MN streams edition
clouser minnow
Tied up to match several baitfish species found in Minnesota streams, including the golden shiner, spottail shiner, river shiner, and other chub and darter species. I tie the wings and bodies of these clousers extra long, around 6 to 8 inches, so that I can trim them in the field to match the current size of the present forage. It appears that the profile of these badboys can double as sand eel patterns for stripers. Bonus.
