Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL

$159.99 – $199.99

Reported by
Noah Glitto

Chippewa Flowage (WI)

Noah Glitto reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Finesse Hair Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Chippewa Flowage. Additional comments from this report: "Water temps approaching 50 degree the smallies are starting to move closer to shore. Fish could be found in 12'-8' of water in sand rock transitions with stumps in the area. targeting stumps would almost always guarantee a bite. Slow dragging hair jigs picked off the roamers in the flats and transitions while finesse jigs and ned rigs were more effective near stumps. Color of the hair jig didn't make a difference. Using lighter braided line resulted in longer casts to cover more water and helped keep the boat away from scaring the fish. 360 imaging played a large role in making accurate casts on the transitions and dropping baits on stumps. Fish caught varied from 1lb-3lbs but if you want to catch a ton of bass this is the place to do it."

Reported by
Sam Rardin Fishing

Mille Lacs Lake (MN)

Sam Rardin Fishing reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Finesse Hair Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula MQ LT Spinning Reel on Mille Lacs Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fish are in full blown spawn with a healthy amount of pre spawners still swimming around. I paralleled rock veins and targeted the deep side of them with slow winding a hair jig. Keep your eyes peeled for followers right now, the hair jig has draw power and can give you an idea of where fish are even if they don’t actually bite. Jerkbaits and work well too but working them somewhat slow will help as well. Don’t be scared to NOT chase bed fish. On Friday I caught over 40 bass in less than 5 hours and 15 of them were around 4lbs and didn’t fish beds once! "

Reported by
Ways Raasch

Roosevelt Lake (MN)

Ways Raasch reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Finesse Hair Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula MQ LT Spinning Reel on Roosevelt Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Was catching some smalies on rock/bolder flats but it had to be near a clean spot in the grass it seemed, seemed to bite best when calm and sunny. Long casts seemed to help get the bait away from the boat the best."
