Testing Don’s MinnerZ on Largemouth Bass

Testing Don's MinnerZ on Largemouth Bass

When everyone is zigging… don’t be afraid to zag.

That sounds like free-form jazz.

Boo-whop skoopa doop. Beedely boop!

My man Don over at Show-Me Fish Tales has a very interesting little modification he makes to his Z-Man TRD MinnowZ… he calls the end result “MinnerZ”, and you can see on his channel that he absolutely slays all sorts of fish with it.

Well… he and his sis would probably say they “reap”.

Make sure to take a look at Don’s channel for examples of the baits he modifies, field tests and more!

I was glad I took an extra rod today, along with my trusty stickbait and swim jig for good measure. These presentations have both been very good to me this year – but the lake is changing. The algae is getting thicker, and the sun is setting on my swim jig… fishing is slowing down a bit… or is it?

The next few weeks will tell the tale, but for now, let’s focus on getting bit.

One other change I noticed is that all of the fish that were up shallow doing their spring-thing seem to have moved out. Now what remains to be seen is whether “out” means out about 25 feet further from shore, or our across the lake to thicker cover – but either way, they ain’t sitting in 2 feet of water like they were!

Time to fish.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving, or a pond or creek to fish, or just want to say hey in the comments or on social media. I’m always trying to improve and appreciate your input. Thanks much!


Let’s get better.
