Ice anglers love the super-soft, hand-poured baits from Clam’s Maki Plastics, and now there are two more reasons: the Mino™ the Mino Head™. Perfect in its tiny, one-inch size, the soft Mino is designed to tip your favorite panfish lure, or rig it split-tail flat or vertical, t-bone or wacky-rig it. The Mino’s tail showcases incredible action to dial in on crappie, bluegill, perch, trout, sauger and walleye. Both items are available in white-red flake, red, pink glow, watermelon-red flake, fathead and shiner colors; the Mino and Mino Head come eight in a bag for a MSRP of $2.99.
The Mino Head is a 1 ½” minnow head for gamefish jigs or treble-hook spoons. No more freezing fingers from nipping off a minnow head in ice-cold water, the super-soft bait is perfect for a tube rig on a 90-degree horizontal jig.
“Hand poured is key because it provides the best action,” said John Crane, developer of the Maki Plastics lineup for Clam. “Its micro size and versatility in rigging is key. The soft Makis stay on and will out fish live bait in most conditions.” Crane knows how frustrating it can be to go back to the live bait bucket and nurse cold hands throughout the day. That’s why he likes the soft Maki plastics that he can store in his warm pockets. “Natural baits have a tendency to fly off and are only good for a few fish, and then you’re back out of the water again. The Mino and Mino Head will be good three- or four-times longer. That’s good time management on the ice,” continued Crane.
Maki Plastics from Clam continue to impress anglers across the ice belt. The new SKUs will be welcome additions to this exceptional new line.
