CWD Continues To Spread In Missouri BY LATE-JANUARY, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) had detected 28 new cases of chronic wasting disease (CWD), including three from outside the 48-county CWD Management Zone. As of Jan. 24, MDC had received test results from 28,923 tissue samples, taken mostly from hunters during the opening weekend of the November firearms deer season. Counties with CWD-positive deer included Adair (2), Crawford (1), Franklin (5), Jefferson (1), Linn (2), Macon (4), Mercer (1), Ste. Genevieve (7), Stone (1) and Taney (1).

SPINNING GEAR lets anglers fish small baits on light lines to entice big bites when bulky offerings fail. Today’s spinning reels have evolved exponentially over their predecessors. An overabundance of bearings and a plethora of advanced materials render modern spinners lightweight while turning with an icy smoothness. Innovations in spool designs have alleviated many of the past line twist ills, while drags rival those of top-shelf baitcasters. Likewise, contemporary spinning rods benefit from decades of material advancements Their blanks are engineered supramolecularly. Resins and carbon fibers are amalgamated on a nanotechnology level These spin rods flick baits with surgical precision and deliver shocking sensitivity. The Game & Fish gear test team brawled with the largest redfish in North America armed only with the latest bass gear. Heres what we discovered after days…

GAME&FISH EDITOR'S CHOICE DAIWA TATULA THE TATULA has been a mainstay of the Daiwa spinning lineup for years. Recent refinements to the baseline have made quantum improvements to the reel. A high-strain, high-density carbon composite chassis anchors the platform, which is light and stiff. Seven strategically placed bearings keep tolerances tight and the Tatula turning with a buttery consistency. The art nouveau inspired crank and paddle grip are as comfortable a grab as you’ll find on a spinner. A bit of tackiness is added to the paddle for a secure grip in wet weather and when fished with sweaty paws. We found the micro-indexed drag let us dial-up just the right amount of resistance, and that helped us put more ill-tempered fish in the boat. The air rotor, a signature of Daiwa spinners, rotates…

Should I Spin? SPINNING GEAR has become very popular recently with the advent of the bass “finesse game.” When the bite turns cold, these little baits are great for catching lock-jawed bass, however, they are a nightmare to throw on conventional baitcasting gear. Spinning gear on the other hand, with its large, open spool design and limber rods, allows the use of lighter line weights. These, in combination, allow long and accurate casting of small baits. Spinning gear also excels for managing finesse baits with an elevated amount of control. The ability to swap the reel handle from one side to the other offers fishermen the ability to fish baits with their dominant hand. This translates into more control and the ability to work lures with exacting precision. It’s this precision that spinning…
