The DTX 220 LRS has been built to withstand the toughest predators in the Ocean, and is ideal for Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Mackerel and any other predatory pelagic fish. At 9" body length and 12.5" overall, it’s the biggest DTX minnow in the range and its also the toughest featuring a reinforced body and full Metal Matrix plate system.
The DTX MINNOW 220 LRS is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring the Pat. Pending Autotune System, Metal Matrix Plate system, Diamond Armour internal strength system and Hydrospeed belly eyelet technology. The DTX 220 LRS will swim deeper and faster than any other minnow and can be trolled between 4kn - 14kn.
The Autotune System gives the DTX an unbelievable diving depth. The DTX 220 LRS will reach up to 50ft diving depth when trolled at least 200ft behind the boat at speeds between 5kn - 9kn and will reach greater depths when trolled on lighter braided line such as 65-80lb. It has a maximum trolling speed of 14kn.
When rigging the DTX 220LRS you should keep connections as small as possible to help achieve greater depths. The smaller the connection the deeper the DTX 220LRS will go. We recommend using 150-200lb monofilament leader with a small crimp or Uni Knot connection to the solid ring, or single strand wire of around 120lb breaking strain, or multi strand cable of up to 250lb. Using hooks other than those supplied is possible if you prefer your own hook, but we cannot guarantee the swimming speed and depth when changing hooks.
