The Shallow running DTX MINNOW 145mm is a revolution in trolling minnows, featuring Nomad Autotune and Hydrospeed advanced design technology, the DTX Minnow is in a class of its own.
The DTX MINNOW 145mm will reach a depth of 3m/ 10ft and due to the wider body and Autotune system has an amazing action at speeds as slow as 1.5kn all the way through to 10kn+ troll speeds. The action at slower speeds is excellent due to the body design, and the same action is only exaggerated at higher speeds to produce a lure is versatile enough to be run inshore from a kayak, or offshore for large pelagics from a sportfishing boat.
The unique body shape design creates a distressed baitfish swimming action and the concealed Hydrospeed belly eyelet allows for faster trolling speeds than conventional towpoints. Combined with the Nomad Design Autotune tow point and bib system, the lure just keeps swimming deep straight and true, first time every time.
Designed and tested in Australia by the Nomad Sportfishing team, Nomad Design lures are not only super tough and
durable, but also feature unique colours and most importantly unique and highly effective shapes & actions. Every Nomad Design lure has been crafted by decades of experience on the water to be tougher, last longer and to catch more fish.
- Hydrospeed belly eyelet for maximum trolling speed.
- HD ABS System, an extra strong white plastic for overall strength and durability.
- Diamond Armour internal mesh system, internal strengthening design for transparent colours.
- Gorilla Through Wire, welded and supported for extra strength.
- Heavy duty BKK hooks and terminals.

The Autotune Bib system allows the lure to self tune, and adjust to changes in the lure shape from fish hitting it, or other problems that often cause lures to need tuning in order to swim straight. The flexible and moveable towpoint means that the lure is always trolled from the perfect centre line of the lure, meaning perfect balance and straight swimming always. There is no longer a need to be tweaking the tow point and bending eyelets sideways and testing the lure to make it swim, just deploy and start catching fish!
HYDROSPEED BELLY EYELET
The unique Hydropseed belly eyelet has been hydrodynamically tested and designed designed to allow maximum trolling speed, and also provide the optimum hookup ratio when using single hooks in large trolling lures. The concealed towpoint allows the lure to be trolled much faster than a conventional lure with an exposed belly eyelet. The additional trolling speed and increased hookup rate make the DTX minnow with Hydrospeed technology a must have trolling lure for any bluewater application.
HD ABS SYSTEM
Normal plastic was simply not strong enough for our lures, so we designed a special formula of High Density ABS plastic, which is a white colour, and is ultimately stronger than any other plastic used for lure production. These lures feature a thicker wall construction, meaning ultimate strength and durability.
This through wire system has the wire bend around a set of extra plastic supports internally, making the wire less likely to separate from the lure body, and ensuring ultimate strength. The Through wire is also welded at both ends to ensure you never lose that big fish.
TRIPLE SHIELD PROTECTION
We ensure that the painting process and the quality of the finish on all lures is protected and likely to last longer by applying 3 final coats of a super tough clear resin to the outside of all lures. It provides additional colour depth and ensure that the finish on your lure will last longer.
This is a special internal design process we have implemented for use with clear ABS plastic bodies, where we want colours that are see through, or where using the HD ABS plastic is not required. The internal diamond mesh grid pattern creates an internal framework to strengthen the body of the lure, making it far less likely to be crushed or cracked by large predators. The internal Diamond grid pattern ensure ultimate strength in all applications.
METAL MATRIX PLATE SYSTEM - DTX220LRS
The ultimate in strength designed for big fish. The Matrix Metal Plate system features a unique design incorporating a stainless steel plate into the body mold of the lure. The plate is incorporated into the lure with a series of small holes at critical locations in the plate, allowing the molded plastic to weave through the metal plate and create the ultimate in strength. The metal plate means you will never lose a massive fish through lure failure, but the matrix system also means ultimate strength between the metal plate and molded body. AVAILABLE IN DTX220LRS
