Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel

$249.99 – $259.99

Reported by
Ol’Basser

Stone Lake (WI)

Ol’Basser reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel on Stone Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Largemouth were up shallow in 2-5 ft of water around structure. They were aggressive and often hit the ned rig on the initial fall."

Reported by
Bennett Gapinski

Grindstone Lake (WI)

Bennett Gapinski reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel on Grindstone Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The fish were setting up on big boulders in the shallows. If you were up shallow and there were bait and boulders around you were catching them. Visably looking for big boulders was key. There was often smallies right on them. The ned bomb was killer for theese smallmouth! The other ned rig baits could not keep up."

Travis Newville

Lake Vermilion (MN)

Dragging ned rigs very slow across points. Find the bait and you’ll find the fish. Ned rigs are simply the best smallmouth lure

Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL

$159.99 – $199.99

Reported by
Seth Akenson

Bald Eagle Lake (MN)

Seth Akenson reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Bald Eagle Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Post front conditions and the fishing was slow. We worked the weed edge until we got bites and slowed down. Keep an eye on your contour maps for slight changes such and inside/outside turns with healthy, green vegetation as the fish seem to be tight to cover. We got largemouth in areas where we felt the bluegill nibbling on the ned jigs. Slow down if you feel those bites because bass are right behind them. Pairing a chartreuse jig head with a green pumpkin MG Lures floating wormed seems to work best."

Reported by
Bradley Leuthner

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

Bradley Leuthner reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Lake Minnetonka. Additional comments from this report: "You really have to put in time to find them. Look in 8 to 14 feet. Lone boulders with sand around them. Seem to be the best."

Reported by
Travis Newville

Chisago Lake (MN)

Travis Newville reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Daiwa Tatula LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Chisago Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Casted into weeds a little bit. I would rip the bait off of the weeds and they would crush it. I tried multiple baits and they’d only hit the Ned."

Daiwa Fuego LT Spinning Reel - EOL

$109.99

Reported by
Ben Datres

Waverly Lake (MN)

Ben Datres reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Daiwa Fuego LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Waverly Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Slowly working the ned along the outside weed line, especially if a harder bottom was present. Sometimes just letting it soak for an extended time and line watching for the bite helped. BRB scented bait seemed to produce more over other plastics. "

Reported by
Ben Rehm

Pool 8 Mississippi River (WI)

Ben Rehm reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and Daiwa Fuego LT Spinning Reel - EOL on Pool 8 Mississippi River.
