Anyone try these minnow type lures? They are supposed to emit an electric signal that duplicates a wounded minnow. I'm curious as to whether they are something worth a try or a gimmik to catch the fisherman.

A little more information, they are made by Pro-Troll and Cabela's was running an email special on these.  The regular price is $4.95 for a size 2 minnow.  I can't find the minnow style on their website but they do have a Pro-Troll, 'Rat-Zap' with e-chip technology.  This is the 'pitch' for the product:

"The RatZap crankbait is rapidly proving itself as a superior fish catching device. As the lure shakes and rattles, the EChip emits continuous nerve pulses. This lipless style crankbait works great for a variety of gamefish including bass, stripers, walleye, trout and many more. The results are astounding."

I found the minnow that I bought along with the rest of the family of Pro-Troll e-lures at


They may be too new for folks to have tried them.  There seems to be something new everyday to try but that is a big part of the fun of fishing.

They looked good enough to catch me this time around and I will give you feed back in a few months, or not.   ;D
