Berkley Flicker Minnow Pro Slick Overview

What Makes It Unique?

Building on the enormously successful Flicker Shad, Berkley set out to make the deeper-diving, extreme action trolling bait. The body design maximizes flash and tail wobble in the water. Extended bill means deeper and faster dives when reaching deeper structure or suspended fish. The Pro Slick series of Flicker Minnows feature flashy colors and ultra-realistic definition. With the wider and extender bill, you can use a lower gear ratio reel to reach the same, and even deeper depths, that you would with a standard minnow and a high gear ratio. With a slower retrieve, the minnow stays closer to the fish for longer. Match that with extreme tail action and ultra-realistic patterns, this minnow is a fish catching machine.

New Addition

Currently, the Flicker Minnow is offered in a 7D (3 inch) and 9D (3.5 inch) version. Next year, expect to see an 11D (4.5 inch range). This new version will feature and even larger bill and the extended body will create an unmatched tail wobble.

The Bottom Line

We loved the Flicker Shad and are seeing the same results in the Flicker Minnow in a deeper-diving package. The crazy tail wobble action might even be producing more fish than the Flicker Shad. You need a deeper-diving minnow bait on your boat at all times. Don’t look anywhere else but the Flicker Minnow. You won’t be disappointed.

The designers at Berkley hit a home run in creating the ultimate trolling lure. The sleep body design working with the extended bill create a hypnotic swaying motion in the water that fish can't resist. Due to the multiple size and color options, you can fish anything from crappie to pike in varying weather and water conditions.
