Z-Man TRD Minnowz – Bad Shad - Review
The Z-Man TRD MinnowZ, also known as Rain MinnowZ, are highly regarded by Midwest Finesse enthusiasts like Ned Kehde. These baits have a slender profile that closely resembles various baitfish found in both fresh and saltwater. When rigged vertically, the small flat tail of the TRD MinnowZ enhances their darting action. Additionally, when oriented horizontally, the tail provides a gliding action reminiscent of reaper-style plastics. Made with the salt-free ElaZtech formulation, these baits are incredibly buoyant and durable.
The TRD MinnowZ are versatile and well-suited for bass fishing, finesse applications in inshore saltwater, and various rigging techniques. Their slim baitfish shape effectively imitates small minnows, fry, and other types of fresh and saltwater forage. For Midwest finesse style fishing, they can be paired with Finesse ShroomZ, NedlockZ, and the new Finesse BulletZ jigheads. These baits are ideal for drop shot and split shot rigs.
If you're looking to mimic small saltwater baitfish like anchovies, silversides, and glass minnows, rigging the TRD MinnowZ with Trout Eye Finesse jigheads would be a great choice. Whether you're targeting bass or inshore species, the Z-Man TRD MinnowZ in the Bad Shad color will be an excellent addition to your tackle box.
