Cow-Dussa Mods

8 posts in this topic

Alright, decided I really like the Medussa's By Chaos and obviously I really like the DCG's and other similiar bucktails, but after buying the Cow-Dussa I think the two good lures combined are horrible. Anyone else feel this way? I only threw it a few times so my judgement is only on my preference not the preference of the fish. Anyways I took the Cow off the Dussa and added a second treble hook on the back of the Cow part and BAM two good lures.

Smeese,

I'm curious what you didn't like about the Cow-Dussa?

I have ran a Dawg Dussa for a couple years, has its time and place.

I like everything about it, but only when it is split in half. Seems front heavy and does not glide well on the jerk like bulldogs or other soft baits. Time will tell though. We will see how well they work together over time.

Like mentioned, they do have their time and place. The Cow-Dussa definitely is not meant to be worked the same way as the Medussa though. So you aren't going to get it to glide or do the things you might be used to. With the blades, it's just not designed to do that. With some of the reports I have heard from this bait, I wouldn't give up on it quite so quickly. My suggestion would be to work it with more of a straight retrieve with much more subtle pumps of the rod or jerk-baits if you're looking to impart additional action in the bait.

I agree with Aaron.

I think its more of a night bait, but not entirely. I have never used one, but I would try slow rolling in a straight retrieve at night. A big fish bait.

Trolling I could see this being a maybe. I have not thrown the idea of them out yet, just not too pumped like I am with some other new products.

    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
