Inspiration for the Injured Minda™ came when John’s eldest son, who as a toddler, fed his tropical fish with an entire bottle of Tetra! After replacing the water and returning the fish to the tank, father and son watched the fish die slowly from overeating. They would float to the top of the water on their sides, then flip their tails to push themselves back down below the surface. This recurring behavior sparked John’s imagination. An artificial lure that could mimic this same action would be the perfect bait. After trial and error with wooden prototypes, John developed a lure that would flip its tail like a dying fish floating on its side. He then made it stationary by incorporating a weighted bill and tail into the lure. The result is a versatile, top water bait that requires only the creativity of the fisherman to maximize its effectiveness.
Because we think like fish so you don't have to, we are in the process of a minor redesign of this bait. When the enhanced bait becomes available we will also be offering additional colors and patterns with superb life-like reproduction. Sorry for any inconvenience.

The Injured Minda™ is a one-of-a-kind lure
and must-have for every fisherman. This versatile, two-piece lure,
hinged at the tail, has the unique ability to create a stationary
action. Fishermen can make the lure rock or flip in a stationary
position -- and it never leaves the strike zone.

- The lure can be retrieved as a crank bait traveling from zero to eight feet deep.
- Depth of the lure can be controlled by the position of the rod tip in relation to the water surface
- The Injured Minda™ can mimic “walking the dog” action without jerking (just a half of a turn of your reel)
