Zerek Live Flash Minnow - New Product

edited August 2014 in Luring & Artificial
Zerek announced the June arrival if their Zerek Live Flash Minnow, I categorise this type of lure under Minnow/Shad (Soft Plastic) and it has a reflective piece inside of the body.


The reflective piece plays 2 roles, one is of course to create that flashy-fish feel when working it and the other which is not noticed right away is, sound. The little piece creates what can only describe as a metalic paper crunching tin foil grumbly sound and attracts fish as it's being retrieved.

The lure appears to come with a weedless hook, I tend to use a 1/2 oz or so jighead if I am fishing in open water or at a pond. However, that does not mean I would not use a weedless jighead.


Top Tip: Sometimes weedless hooks can be thick for this type of lure, by changing to thinner gauge for small game the hook will pop up faster and improve your hook up results.


It's a darting action lure, so any sort of flicking the rod tip creates a left to right frenzy of movement.

And don't be fooled, you can also straight crank this soft plastic, it's little or no presence of a paddle on the tail does not mean it is not micro-wiggling, it is and the number of fish I have caught from a straight crank of something that not appear to have any action made me a believer that on a micro scale the tail is moving.

"*micro wiggling*", sounds like a new type of fishing!

    While fish such as trevally are better known as bottom feeders preferring crabs, prawns and shrimp, every now and again they will wallop a baitfish pattern.

    These new Zerek Flash Minnows are so good that normally baitfish profile shy species such as trevally will take them with gusto.

    This adds more confidence to your lure selection, knowing that as wide a range of species as possible will take them.

    Hi guys,

    I'm planning to get the 5g (90mm) version of the zerek flash minnow and intend to rig it weedless with a wide gap worm hooks. Anyone have any idea which size of mustad ultra point wide gap hooks should I pair it with so as to ensure a proper hook up? Saw that Luke mentioned either a size 3 or 4 for the nailbomb jigheads... Thanks in advance!

    Off the top of my head I can't be sure. What I nornally do when I am not sure is buy the soft plastic and then take the hooks I want to buy and line them up to see if they fit.
  • Devilzken
    U need to buy offset hook for this cos the middle is hollow and normal jighead will crumple the flash when inserted
  • monstrad

    for 90mm I use size 1 weedless hook

    size 1/0 the hook will be outside the slit/hole

    of course this depends on hook brand, different brand their size don't tally

    best is to bring your hook there to size up

    most of the time I use jighead, only in snaggy area then I use jika rig with weedless hook
