SPRO – MadEye Minnow


SPRO – MadEye Minnow

SPRO turned to guru Rob Ruckman to create a series of baits that would consistently catch walleyes in tough, early-season conditions right through the warmer temperatures. The new MadEye Minnow 120 and MadEye Diver produce sound and action that convinces even sluggish walleyes to bite. The unique sound of these baits will bring fish from long distances in the big waters. Each bait has different profiles and actions, but both are loaded with features including custom paint jobs that are highly durable and offered in the top color patterns. All baits are equipped with premium Gamakatsu hooks and have a unique sound chamber. “The MadEye Minnow is the absolute best cold-water trolling walleye bait I have ever used,” said SPRO Pro Rob Ruckman. Ruckman cites the distinctive rolling and wobbling action that allows it to be trolled effectively at speeds as slow as 0.8 miles per hour and big fish profile that offers a meal worth pursuing even in near-freezing water. The unique bill design is tuned to perform well at a variety of depths down to 20 feet. The MadEye Diver features the proven “banana” profile that delivers a tight wobbling action with unpredictable side-to-side movement that causes walleyes to strike with abandon. Designed for trolling at speeds between 1.5 to 2.5 miles per hour, the MadEye Diver wobbles its way down to depths of 17 feet, complete with a rattling sound that drives walleyes mad. The MadEye Diver excels when water temps reach 55 degrees and above, making it Ruckman’s go-to bait in the summer. “It’s the perfect walleye trolling bait to use on any size body of water.”
