  M40D MicroMin (Deep)
One of the deepest running micro lures on the market. Has a strong medium action and is best suited to ultra light tackle.

Count Down
Sinks slowly but will float with one hook removed and it isn't weighed down with a metal snap.

Troll it slowly along river edges for bass and bream, or cast and count down to work close to cover with a twitching technique.
Line attachment
Gives best action when attached with loop knot rather than metal snap.

Strong action
Stronger action than most deep diving micro lures. Works at very slow speeds.

Stationary trolling !
Mick Lee (Brisbane) anchors in current at night and lets the M40D trail behind the boat on a fixed line. He targets bream but has had some other surprises, including mulloway and tailor.

Small lure, small fish?
Not necessarily. With its strong action and diving ability MicroMin will attract large natives like Murray cod.
