DTX MINNOW

DEEP. FAST. STRAIGHT.
50ft depth at 12kn troll speed...yeah, the DTX 220 does that. Or what about 30ft at 10kn troll speed? The smaller body DTX 165 does that. There's a DTX minnow for fast and slow speeds, or for super deep or shallow applications.

Why has the DTX minnow become the #1 selling offshore trolling minnow in the USA? Why is the DTX Minnow different and why does it do what no other trolling minnow can do? Patented Autotune Technology developed in Australia, by Nomad Founder Damon Olsen, over decades of charter experience on Nomad Sportfishing is why. The DTX Minnow range represents the pinnacle of offshore deep diving trolling minnows.

  • DTX SINKING models feature a narrow body design and are designed to run deep, fast and straight.
  • DTX FLOATING models have a fatter body for increased action at slower speeds.
  • DTX SHALLOW models have an amazing action at speeds as slow as 1.5kn up to 10kn+ troll speeds.
