Default Dtx minnow ?

Anyone have trouble keeping buttoned up with these. Had five bites the other day and lost four fish. Felt like drag to keep it from slipping actually tore hook out when I got the bite.

Not many issues there, more issues lately with them breaking in half after 1-2 bites..

Don’t think you understood . Need drag tight to keep line from creeping when your trolling but thinking it’s tearing hook out. Never mind.

Life is too short to lose the fish of a lifetime. Hang them on your wall and buy proven reliable divers like the Bomber CD or Rapala.

Yeah I do, loosen your drag while you're fighting the fish if you think that's what is happening.

The hooks that come with the lure have no barb.
