Norm Zeigler created the Schminnow for Snook on Floridas calm gulf beaches . With no added weight, it lands lightly, fishes slow, shallow & won't spook fish. If you hear someone raving about an great day on Snook, Redfish or Rooster Fish, often the Schminnow is the star of the story. Original White-Pearl, Tan Shrimp and Schmancy Schminnow in White, Tan and Gray.
Many of my favorite patterns have co-evolved with the same deadly combination of pearl flash in the belly and a white tail, for example, Steelhead and Crappie jigs, Clouser variations, Banjo Minnows, Bob's Bangers, and Silver Bullets.
