The allure of a lipped lure

The Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow is a shallow-running, lipped crankbait that’s effective on speckled trout.

The Yo-zuri Crystal Minnow is among the best lures for catching speckled trout. While many anglers use lipless crankbaits, this one has a lip.

The shallow-running lure is at its best when cast along sandbars and oyster beds in creeks.

Twitching gives the lure an erratic motion like that of a wounded mullet, and trout cannot resist striking what they see as a helpless target.

A rattle chamber increases the lure’s attracting power.
