LipRipper_MN

Lake Pepin (MN, WI)

LipRipper_MN reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Hard Jerkbaits technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Lake Pepin. Additional comments from this report: "Late season stuff here, very cold water, have to do 5+ second pauses. Fish were located 7-10 feet down with access to deep water nearby. Also don’t worry about getting out early, fish 11am-3pm fish aren’t active or moving up to feed until later in the day as it warms up! "

Bass Pundit

Mille Lacs Lake (MN)

Bass Pundit reported catching Walleye using the Hard Jerkbaits technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Mille Lacs Lake. Additional comments from this report: "I fished from shore on the SW side of the lake from 10 pm to 11:40 pm. Wind conditions were ideal. I only got two bites in quick succession just before I called it a night. They wanted the Rap moving at a moderately slow pace with no pauses. Both eyes were just under 20”."

Clearwater Lake (6) (MN)

Bennett Gapinski reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Hard Jerkbaits technique and Daiwa Tatula SV TW103 Casting Reel on Clearwater Lake (6). Additional comments from this report: "The key was finding rock ledges. The hard rock ledges transitioning into more scattered rock is where i found success. The jerkbait was straight up getting bit.6-10 feet of water was the best depth for me"

Omnia Community Member

Pokegama Lake (MN)

Omnia Community Member reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Hard Jerkbaits technique and Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel on Pokegama Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The warm weather had smallies moving shallow. We caught them on jerkbaits in 2-8 fow on flats with boulders and scattered rock. Megabass Vision 110s in French Pearl and GG Kincuro were the ticket when the wind blew. When it was calm, an Outkast Perfect Ned with a Z-man TRD Tickler mopped em up. My son caught his PB smallie (5.4 lbs!) On the Ned."

Lake Of The Ozarks (MO)

Shimano Curado MGL 70K Casting Reel

$249.99

Reported by
larrymarketreels

Lake of the Isles (MN)

larrymarketreels reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Jerkbaits technique and Shimano Curado MGL 70K Casting Reel on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Caught about 8 of them on the Rerange 110 at the very tip of a point in about 14’ that immediately dropped into deeper water. Longer pauses between rod twitches were the key. Working the jerkbait too erratically did not seem to get them to react. Slow-playing the lure got me most of my bites today. "
