Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel

$209.99

Reported by
JLieu

Lake of the Isles (MN)

JLieu reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shallow Diving Crankbaits (0-6') technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Typical hot (albeit windy) summer day…a time to break out some noise and vibration! Wind was stout at 10+ mph with 25mph gusts at times. That resulted in less overall pressure and recreational traffic as well. Many bass were to be found within and along the matted/submerged vegetation, but I mostly pulled up dinks today (14” - 16”) off some shallow crank baits with most success coming off the Hybrid Hunter! Every now and then I would even get a tiny bass on it that is nearly the same size as the lure! On the return paddle back, I switched over to the Jackhammer Chatterbait and got hit with a handful of northern pikes along the weed line of the vegetation within 3’ - 10’. Interestingly, I did hit one trolling along the 20’ depth as well; but I’d say that’s an anomaly."

Trent Ellis reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shallow Diving Crankbaits (0-6') technique and Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel on Table Rock Lake.
