Team Daiwa TD Minnow Review

TD Minnow/TDM 2101SP 01 Suspending Minnow

td_minnow_sg_trans2The TD Minnow is available in 10 fish catching colors with super fine scale patterns and life-like 3D eyes. These lures are 4 inches in length and weigh 5/8 ounces. On 8 lb line the TD Minnow will suspend @ 3-4 feet on a jerk, jerk, pause retrieve.

I fished a TD Minnow in the Translucent Minnow color in crystal clear water on main lake points on Kentucky Lake. The bait casts flawlessly, even into the wind. I was able to catch some very nice smallmouth bass that were suspended in about 15 feet of water, and the ultra sharp hooks kept them buttoned up.

I found the TD Minnow to be in the same class as Lucky Craft jerkbaits. They seem to have very similar characteristics in both casting and suspending abilities.

I would rate the Type SG TD Minnow as follows:

Ranking 1 – 10
(1 = poor, 10 = Excellent):

Design: 10
Colors: 10
Cast Ability: 10
Suspend Ability: 10
Quality: 10

Overall Ranking: 10

I would consider these baits to be at the top of my jerkbait list. You will not find baits that are superior in “lifelike” appearance or fishability. Give these baits a test drive, you won’t be disappointed… learn more
