    Hi Monty,

    the first is indeed a rebel sinking minnow.
    the seconds is a tsunami long stick about 1 oz.
    the third is also a rebel sinking minnow,you can tell by the front eyelet,the sinking has it more near the bottom,the floater is dead center.

    I hope this is not a stupid question. Why do they call them sinking minnows? Do they have bbs or shot inside of them to make them dive deeper or is it the shape of the lip? Thanks. nice plugs.

    They sink slowly and eventually suspend usually about a foot per second

    they have a bit of lead cast into the plastic,I was told this but,I don't know for sure.
    they also cast better than the floating minnow.

    they also have a different action,kinda like a bomber with a side to side darting action as I remember.
    if you look over the glory daze thread you will see some of mine that have been retired,they are now mostly bone white.

    I caught a lot of bass on them[green mackerel color] in the sinking version.
    they casted farther and swam different from the floating minnow.
    I was hammering bass before anyone even knew there were bass around my parts.
    back then there were no bass around just gorilla bluefish and all of a sudden one night whilst catching blues I got into a good fight with a fish that felt odd,didn't jump,just stayed deep and throbbed.
    when I got it to shore I knew what it was.
    I caught them for 2 years before anyone knew about it.
    this was back in 1982-83.
    then someone saw me with a nice 20lb bass walking to my car and the cat was out of the bag.
