The fastest-growing bait profile in the finesse angling community right now, the bite-sized boot tail swimbait is fast becoming a go-to for many anglers chasing bream, bass, flathead & more.
The BaitJunkie 2.5” Minnow is the first design that incorporates BaitJunkie’s signature ‘slim waist’ design principle. This waist section segments the body into two parts, allowing the tail to move freely and thanks to the Elastomax construction. The durability of the bait is a non-concern. A broad boot tail is connected to a thin tail wrist which delivers an insanely high-pitch vibration, capable of calling in predatory fish from long distances. The soft nature of Elastomax also means the 2.5” Minnow is capable of fishing on very light jigheads, still maintaining an enticing swimming action whilst sinking even when rigged on lightweight heads around 1/16oz.
Featuring rigging lines on the top for easy straight rigging, the BaitJunkie 2.5” Minnow comes in 18 different colours to suit both fresh & saltwater. With an assortment of solid and two-tone laminate colours there is sure to be one that suits any situation you may encounter.
The upsize offering from the 2.5” minnow, the 3.2” version is a juiced-up swimbait ready to catch anything that swims in either salt or freshwater. A slightly thicker body can accept larger hooks and larger bait keepers, and the slightly bigger boot tail produces an almighty thump to attract predators in deep or dirty water. The same signature ‘slim waist’ design is prominent in this bait and delivers a swimming action that is unmatched by more traditional swimbait profiles.
The 4.2” Minnow adopts anew shape and a slightly different material to produce an epic action that is deadly in salt and freshwater. The deeper body enables flexibility for rigging options and helps promote the rolling action that makes this bait so successful. The big boot tail produces a heavy thump to call in nearby predators and will work at low and high speed making it incredibly versatile. The defining ‘slim waist’ design is prominent once again enabling the tail to flex and twist independently as the bait tracks perfectly through the water column.
The 4.2” Minnow is the ‘estuary powerhouse’ of the Bait Junkie range. Featuring rigging lines on the top for easy rigging, this is the bait to reach for when chasing mangrove jack in the snags or canals or big flathead in the estuaries.
6.2” Minnow is perfect large swimbait to tempt big predators to strike. The versatile swimming action which is so evident in the 4.2” version is only increased in the 6.2” model. The longer body and extra girth create the ideal profile and when paired with the rolling/thumping swimming action it is the perfect imitation for large baitfish.
The big boot tail will work at very slow speeds enabling the angler to “slow roll” for barramundi, mulloway and makes an excellent trailer when targeting big murray cod. Rigged on a standard jighead or weighted weedless the 6.2” minnow will swim on the drop and has been accounting for an incredible amount of fish as it swims down on a pause.
