Building on the success of the original Mischief Minnow, American Baitworks introduces the Freedom Tackle Mischief Minnow HD thrash bait!

The secret to the Mischief Minnow’s performance is the unique custom shaped patent-pending Kilter blade design which is center-mounted on the bait’s body by an angled blade pin. The Mischief Minnow is designed to put fish in the boat with premium paint finishes, super-sharp Gamakatsu short shank treble hooks and the exclusive Freedom Color-Matched Custom Shaped Kilter Blades.

Brand New Features

The Mischief Minnow HD has three brand new features that bass, predator and saltwater anglers have asked for!

  • Through-wire construction now means that even the toughest fish won’t get away with a single wire connecting line-tie and hooks through the body of the Mischief Minnow
  • Weight Transfer System – cast further every time with the new weight transfer system on board every Mischief Minnow HD that not only adds distance with stainless steel ball bearings, but also adds sound to this loud clacking thrash bait in a larger 5.5” body
  • Predator/Saltwater Patterns – we’ve added some impressive designs and paint finishes to the Mischief Minnow HD for 2022 that are simply unbeatable

How to Fish

Working the bait is simple with a steady retrieve – relying on the custom blade design combined with the side-to-side body rolling action which mimics a wounded baitfish on the water’s surface. The Mischief Minnow’s unique thrashing action combines sound, wake vibration and Kilter blade flash – a true triple threat in topwater fishing.

At rest, the high float body relies on a nose-up presentation that thrashes into action with the slightest twitch. Use a straight retrieve or mix it up with a pause-and-rip to entice bone-jarring strikes!

The Mischief Minnow HD is designed to put fish in the boat with premium paint finishes, super-sharp Gamakatsu Short Shank treble hooks and the exclusive Freedom Color-Matched Custom Kilter Blade.

The Mischief Minnow HD will be Available Fall 2021.
