Yamamoto Zako Swimbait

$5.99 – $6.49

Reported by
Jimmy Haung

Medicine Lake (MN)

Mitchell Lake (MN)

JLieu reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Yamamoto Zako Swimbait on Mitchell Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Perfect day after the record-breaking week of heat. Water is down probably 3' on average. Tons of lily pads to pick through here. Early AM fun with the Whopper Plopper (not much interest in frogs today). Dropshot (or any finesse worms really) resulted in tons of bites along the weed lines. Most were in good healthy sizes of 16 - 18" for me today. However, the largest ones were from slow rolling the bladed jig (Jack Hammers) up towards shore into the thickest weeds. All from 3ft or less of water! "

Brandon Garrett

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

On Sunday, 5/16/21, with water temps ranging from 59 to 64 degrees, some bass were just beginning to appear at their spawning beds. But, more fish could be found feeding in the shallows on reaction baits. Casting along all the shorelines between docks, a good number of bites from keeper size, up to 3lb, non-bed fish came on bladed jigs or chatterbaits in 3-4 ft of water - with the boat in 6-7 ft. A few keepers were caught in these same areas on a swim jig and a flipping jig. A few bigger, close to 4lb, largemouth were caught in the channels between lakes on Tx rigged creature baits like a brush hog. If you head out there soon you may be able to take your pick between bass feeding in the shallows, or spawning on their beds.

Z-Man RaZor ShadZ

$4.99

Reported by
Charles Bessel

Orchard Lake (MN)

Charles Bessel reported catching Muskie using the Bladed Jigs technique and Z-Man RaZor ShadZ on Orchard Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Took the kayak out for a late afternoon summer trip. Threw the slobberknocker with the green pumpkin ShadZ trailer. Caught this musky on the west side of the lake by tossing it alongside the weed line. "

Reported by
Ben Wandzel

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

Ben Wandzel reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Z-Man RaZor ShadZ on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "Chatterbait, specifically the Z-Man Jack Hammer was key on opener. Water temps were mid to upper 60's with mixed clarity depending on what bay you were in. Fish were on weedlines and wanted to chase. Got a few on lipless and square bills but the Jack hammer outproduced everything. "

Reported by
PJ

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

PJ reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Z-Man RaZor ShadZ on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "Few beds in the gravel, had 10 good ones mostly up in lay downs and brush. Have to cover water."

Hog Farmer Bait Company Spunk Shad Pintail

$5.99 – $6.99

Reported by
Nate Hunhoff

Lotus Lake (MN)

Nate Hunhoff reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Hog Farmer Bait Company Spunk Shad Pintail on Lotus Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Mid 60 degree water temp with air temps in the high 40s. Absolute wack fest on lotus this morning. Caught a lot of quality largemouth on a mix between a jackhammer, swim jig and skipping jig. Over the emerging milfoil I fished a jackhammer or swim jig when the wind calmed down and skipped docks to pick up bites as well."

Reported by
Jacob Bros

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

Jacob Bros reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Hog Farmer Bait Company Spunk Shad Pintail on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "Found fish near spawning areas in the shallow grass and boat docks. "

Reported by
Pete Przepiora

Lake Sarah (MN)

Pete Przepiora reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Bladed Jigs technique and Hog Farmer Bait Company Spunk Shad Pintail on Lake Sarah. Additional comments from this report: "Hard to find good vegetation due to the heavy spraying currently on the lake. We found some good grass in 6-8 feet of water. Post spawners we’re feeding on bluegills in the grass. "
