Pros: Good action, catches alot of fish, catches several types of fish
Cons: Hooks need to be stronger
Comments: This lure catches fish anytime. Not always giants, but variety and quantity. I have had a couple of bass bend out the hooks but it is a cheap lure. These work great for bass and sunfish, and even trout too. I find whenever I am struggling, I can usually bag one on the Matzuo.
 PICKEREL KILLER!!
Pros: nice shallow running lure
Cons: nothing
Comments: Pickerel hunter here these lures work like magnets and you bang a lot of pickerels in the shallow water with them.

Comments: Cheaper in cost than some minnow baits, but has great darting action and waggle on steady retrieve. Colors and pattern are nice and would be wise to have a couple in the box. Bass and crappie eat them up.

 Great small and medium stream trout lure
Pros: Very Effective
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Shore Casting
Comments: The only problem that I've encountered is the ring connected to the eye will occasionally get stuck between the ring and the lip, throwing off the action. Overall a great little lure.

 I love this bait!
Pros: Irresistible to Fish, Good For Variety Of Fish, Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Shore Casting
Comments: This is by far the best minnow bait on ultralight tackle I've used. Fished on a jerk and pause retrieve, it is absolutely deadly on crappie, largemouth and white bass.
Jimbo
Jersey Shore, Pa
 It works.
Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Looks Realistic, Strong
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Shore Casting
Comments: Fish it like a live minnow. Cast it, twitch it, reel it. On the about the third cast with this minnow. I landed a nice brown trout. Just 3 weeks ago.
Escarius
New York
Outstanding trout lure
Pros: Irresistible to Fish, Looks Realistic, Good For Variety Of Fish
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Salt Water, Shore Casting
Comments: The Nano proved irresistible in slow moving bodies of water. A moderate retrieve speed, along with one to two second pauses at five to seven second intervals, proved the most productive. Success rate is equivalent or higher than the comparative Floating Rapala. The only issue is the finish; the paint's durability is fairly underwhelming. However, that said it is an incredibly effective lure for trout, weakfish and schooling bluefish.

 If you want to catch fish use a Matzuo
Pros: Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle, Irresistible to Fish, Good For Variety Of Fish
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Trolling
Comments: We tried everything for a year to catch some fish. We used power bait to worms and never got even a bite. Once we started using Matzuo we have never looked back. It's the best in my book !

 Works well on small streams & rivers BUT
Pros: Easy To Handle, Good for smaller ones, Looks Realistic
Cons: Limited Use
Best Uses: Better 3" or 4", Fresh Water, Shore Casting, Too small
Comments: It's a killer. Great for 1 to 2lb. trout BUT; If it were larger, 3" or 4" it would garner more large catches, the big ones get off the small lure size. Other than that, it would be 5 star rated by me. The color scheme is perfect & it proves to bring bites when other lures don't. Get it bigger & we'll test it for you on large fish. R.N.S.
