Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel

$209.99

Reported by
Dan

Indian Lake (MN)

Dan reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Indian Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Spent a good hour and a half flipping the grass with a Texas rig and it wasn’t very production. Switched to a jig and caught 17” my first cast and a smaller 14” the second. The rest of the time was more of the same. Cruising the weed flats and slowing working through them and watching the pockets and irregularities in the grass. "

Trevor Lo

Mille Lacs Lake (MN)

Trevor Lo reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Mille Lacs Lake. Additional comments from this report: "A lot of smallmouth are still in the pre-spawn stage but are moving towards their spawn areas. I was able to catch very good quality fish dragging a football jig around rock piles that had schools of bait nearby. The fish would be spitting up both crawdads and perch as you fought them. Lots of cruising fish in the shallows, but most of my fish were caught in 8-10 feet of water."

Lake Koronis (MN)

Omnia Community Member reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Lake Koronis. Additional comments from this report: "The bite was tough. Ran several spots that typically produce and it was a fish here and fish there. One quality smallmouth early and finally ran into a pod of quality largemouth early afternoon. Green pumpkin jigs were the most consistent producer."

Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel

$269.99

Bde Maka Ska (MN)

larrymarketreels reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel on Bde Maka Ska. Additional comments from this report: "1/2oz Swinghead Jig with Xzone 4.25" Adrenaline Craw triggered several bites in a 14' grass patch. Make a long cast, let it hit bottom, and straight retrieve it slowly making sure to maintain bottom contact. When it would catch on the grass, I didn't use my rod to pop it free. Instead I just kept pressure on the reel handle until it pulled out from the snag, which seemed to really trigger the bites. "

Christian McCoy

Lake Miami (IA)

Christian McCoy reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel on Lake Miami. Additional comments from this report: " Slow drag through brush piles"

Lake Camelot (IL)

Omnia Community Member reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel on Lake Camelot. Additional comments from this report: "Slow dragging jig on points, pop it off bottom every so often. Targeting 10’-16’, the depth range where all the bait is marking on the Helix."

Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel

$209.99

Reported by
Trent Ellis

Stockton Lake

Trent Ellis reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel on Stockton Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Stockton is fishing tough right now. The key right now is finding the bass by themselves. There is a lot of trash fish on the main lake points and in brush piles. Some bass are mixed on with them, but for the most part its hard to target them mixed in. Spend time scanning around and find bait and the bass seperated on bottom away from other species of fish."

Reported by
Sam Moll

Lake Barkley (2) (TN)

Sam Moll reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel on Lake Barkley (2). Additional comments from this report: "The unseasonably warm temperature had bass shallow on mud/ silt flats. I used the jig to flip at the various pieces of cover located on the flats. "

Reported by
Timothy Skinnell

Smith Mountain Lake (VA)

Timothy Skinnell reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Football Jigs technique and Shimano Curado MGL 150 Casting Reel on Smith Mountain Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Focused on docks and rocky banks on the main lake at the mouths of creeks and guts most of my bites came from skipping the jig under the dock letting it hit bottom hop it 2 or 3 times an slowly draging it out from under the dock all in all a very tough day 3days of pressure from big bass tour definitely showed itself as the weights and amounts of big fish cought on Saturday were cut in half"
