Rated 4 out of 5 by Capt Dan from Catches fish but lacs durability. The new Berkley Minnows flat-out catch Walleyes. Their color, design, swimming dynamics and price for each are great. But their durability I believe suffers, probably given trying to keep their components, materials and building price & processes as low as possible. I love the Pro-slim colors, but had 2 of their diving bills break under what I thought was slight pressure from netted walleye. And the hooks they come with are sharp but brittle. Once they bend once, they break when you try to bend them back in shape. I've been looking for a stronger hook for replacments that won't interfere with the lures swmming dynamics. And right now, the lures catching qualities outweigh their downsides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dukeboy90 from I bought 6 different colors of the Flicker Minnow and the Flicker Shad to fish the Berkley Tornament on Lake Fork . They both worked great and we cot a lot of fish . The Flicker Minnow by far had the best action of any intermediate crankbait That I've ever used . It was awesome . Thanks Berkley for producing another great bait . By the way , it was the first Tornament that my wife ever fished and she had a blast catching on those fish . She said she's ready for the next one . Thanks again , Anthony Goodson

Rated 2 out of 5 by mbfisher from Catches Walleye but not tough enough Took out my new flicker minnows for the first time since buying them this week. They swim good and dive nicely. Trouble is they are not as durable as i would have thought they would be. The small one broke after catching its first fish out of the package. Just as we netted the fish the bill broke off. Switched to the bigger one and same thing about 3 fish later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Strangeeyes from Great Bait. No Problems with durability at all! I have been running these lures from May until now and could not recommend another bait over these Flicker Minnows. They flat out catch fish day in and day out. I have caught fish on every single size 5-11 cm. Walleyes from 18"- 29" on a consistent basis. Dive at a quick rate, with Precision Trolling data right on the package(HUGE advantage to the walleye angler). Not sure why others are having problems with tunes, as these run true right out of the box. Others that needed a tune may be trolling at too high a speed for lure to run straight. Also, not sure what nets people are using but I have put over 100 fish in the net and none have ever broken on me... maybe some don't treat gear the way it should be treated but that's a topic for another day. Hooks have held up to 10lb walleye, 13lb sheepshead, and 13lb lake trout. If you fish for walleye and do not have these in your box, you will miss out on the opportunity to catch fish consistently.

Rated 3 out of 5 by just me from They catch fish.. had to tune each one to run true I like the bait very much. The action is unique. Would like to see a size 11 soon. The huge issue is that I had to tune each one to run true. Most would turn completely on their side. I had seen other reviews that said the same thing. Figure that out and you have one of the best baits we use. Again, add a size 11 and fix the tuning issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PPF Guide Service from Great lures We use these and Flicker Shads often with excellent results. Only wish the dive chart was included for #7 minnows on their packaging like the other sizes have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brett Cox from Catches Walleye Bought this plug because I like the profile. Dives to depth as advertised. Gets down at low trolling speed. Nice even action. Requires tuning out of box. Price is right. Bills break off. Berkley engineers need to address this. Will pay more for a more durable plug.
