It has to have some sort of blade to make it considered a "lure". Somthing you should buy is a quickstrike rig they work awesome and your catch rate will go up. Its a leader with to trebels and a blade on top to make it legal.

Oh by the way I don't think you can bait both hooks with a separate minnow.

not true, who says that you cant put 2 minnows on a worm harness/spinner rig which is considered a "lure" with 2 hooks

Doesn't putting 2 minnows on a quick strike rig sort of defeat the purpose of the quick strike rig?

I was told years ago when I used quickstrike rigs that the hooks must not be able to slide more than 6" from the spinner to be considered a lure.... Might want to check that out. Just need to put a crimp or a knot and a bead near the hooks so when the CO picks it up the hooks can't slide too far.

I think it does. I personally do not see the point.
