Reported by
Travis Newville

Lake Vermilion (MN)

Travis Newville reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and St. Croix Victory Spinning Rods on Lake Vermilion. Additional comments from this report: "Spring time in vermillion is so much fun. Lots of smallies in the 2-4 pound range. Throw a ned rig off of points or up shallow in bays. Having a good rod is so important if you don’t have one, I recommend getting one"

Mark Ripp

Pool 11 Mississippi River (IA)

Focused on main channel points and rock piles. Fish were grouped up well and we caught several fish off each spot. Ned rigs caught the bulk of the fish but also picked up a few with swing heads and Rage Craws. Later in the evening a black popper also was a key player.

$150.00

Reported by
Travis Newville

Chisago Lake (MN)

Travis Newville reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Spinning Rods - 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."

Reported by
Sydney Sullivan

Mississippi River (Monticello) (MN)

Sydney Sullivan reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Ned Rigs technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Spinning Rods - EOL on Mississippi River (Monticello).

Slowly dragging the ned rig on the bottom with slight pauses and jerks."
