The DEPS Spiral Minnow redefines the concept of a wake bait. Very effective on the surface or just beneath it, it has an uncanny ability to get fickle bass to attack. Its flatter sides produce a sharper and quicker wobble-and-roll when retrieved, and the prop continuously causes a ruckus with an enticing clanking sound and bubble trail.
On a slow retrieve, the Spiral Minnow will roll back and forth on the surface, flaring its sides like a wounded baitfish under attack, and on a speedier retrieve, its action widens and the roll is enhanced with the bait tracing just beneath the surface. Another effective technique for the Spiral Minnow is to use short quick jerks. These sharp rips cause the bait to dart erratically, producing intermittent noise from the prop, and allowing it to dive quickly, leaving behind a bubble trail. On the pause, the minnow slowly floats back to the surface.
