Fix a DTX Minnow
 
Have a couple new 200s with bills that have been beat up pretty good and now they wonít swim, is there a way to tweak them?

Somebody said you can do it the same as other diving plugs.

Take pair of pliers and grab the line tie parallel to the bill and gently twist it in the opposite of the direction that you want it to go.

its popping out of the water. Meaning itís doing a spiral instead of swimming...the line tie doesnít seem to be off at all.

Its probably favoring one direction in its spiral. The line tie is a flexible plate but the studs it connects to are fixed. Give the line tie a bend with the pliers in opposite direction that its spiraling and see if it helps. If not Lono Ono seems to have the solution. I haven't tried this myself on Nomads yet but works on every other plug...

lad I didnít waste my money on those. They seem to have a terrible reputation for the cost.

If you troll at 8 knots don't get them. I don't know whether to contact them again or not lol.
