St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods - EOL

$150.00

Reported by
Michael Rekas

Lake of the Isles (MN)

Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods - EOL on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing emergent pad stems has been a great way to catch good numbers. Bites have come either paralleling the outside stems or casting into them, but keeping your swim jig in the middle of the water column is key. The only real pattern with this bite has been the sun. The higher, warmer sun later in the morning and early afternoon has seemed to create a more consistent bite as these fish start to pull up into warmer, shallower water with the sun. "

Goose Lake (MN)

Had a Wednesday night tourney on Goose and caught around 25 Largemouth and another 10 Northern in the span of 3 1/2hours. I spent half of my time skipping wacky rigged Junebug colored Yum Dingers under docks on the Daiwa Rebellion ML spinning rod. What an amazing rod for the money, I'd put it up against much higher priced rods, maybe my favorite spinning rod in my lineup. The other half of the time I was throwing a 6th sense divine swim jig, bluegill color with either a Keitech swimbait or a Strike King Rage Craw as a trailer. I would throw the swim jigs into the reeds and then parallel to the lillypads between the docks before I got back into dock skipping range. The 6th sense swim jig is fantastic at coming through vegetation clean and has a really stout hook to rip through as well. I fish it straight braid when going through the reeds but will add in a fluro leader if fishing open water.

Bear Lake (WI) (WI)

Had a great pattern going on the outside edge of reed beds throwing swim jigs. The bass were not in the weeds, but just outside the edges especially near hard bottom. The real hot spots were near deeper drop offs. Throwing a swim jig/paddletail combo in bluegill color parallel to the reed beds was money!

Mark Ripp

Pool 11 Mississippi River (IA)

Mark Ripp reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and St. Croix Victory Casting Rods on Pool 11 Mississippi River. Additional comments from this report: "Focused on lay downs on flats off the main channel. Had to have moderate current and bait close by. Fish still seemed scattered a bit and not really grouped up but areas reloaded. We would get one or two in an area and then let his rest for awhile and then repeat. "

Lower Twin (MN)

Bass are in spawn mode which means bluegill imitators should be tied on ‼️ Swim jigs around over hanging trees produce a number of quality bites 🎣

Reported by
Ben Nelson

Leech Lake (MN)

Ben Nelson reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Dobyns Rods Fury Casting Rods on Leech Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The bass are bunched up in large groups - while you will fish a lot of dead water, the areas where you find them are money! The fish tend to sit in the heavier clumps of cover no matter what it is. Casting a Swim Jig around these areas is the quickest and most effective way to find quality largemouth. Also, they are starting to hit frogs which can make the search even more fun!"

Tino

Lake Osborne (FL)

Tino reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Swim Jigs technique and Dobyns Rods Fury Casting Rods on Lake Osborne. Additional comments from this report: "Grass is growing again so it's time to use a swim jig. I Iike to add a craw trailer with lots of movement. I was catching small bass on a small crankbait, but wanted to target some bigger bass I saw swimming by. So I scaled up to a 4inch craw on a swim jig to entice them. Got a couple to chase and one finally commited and took the jig on the bottom in about 4 feet of water. When the babies are biting, scale up!"
