Bought this off e-b-a-y a month or so ago and would love to know what it is and where I can get more.

It's about the size of a mag dawg, but it weighs 18oz.

I think you meant 8oz, because that would be a tyrant jerkbait, made from a guide in wisconsin or michigan. I've seen them at reeds or gander. There's a video of this bait on muskies first with more details i think.

Wow that looks awesome... change up the head design and it might would appeal more to me... or I could use the plastic body on a Mag Spinnerbait that has trailer hook... that would work...

Nope positively not the Tyrant, and it IS 18 oz...

The seller also had a 9 oz version at the time and I'm kickiing myself for not getting those also.

Definitely nothing like a Tyrant. It looks similar to something that Bucher makes called a Grubby Joe. But it's not close to that big.

The Grubby Joe had alot different tail and it only came with one treble for the stinget hook, but thats what I was thinking too. I think Gander still carries the Grubby Joe, but that thing looks alot better.

18 oz... wow. that thing will dive in a hurry

Yeah I seen the Grubby Joe @ gander yesterday and it is very similar, but this things dwarfs the grubby.

wow. can't say i'm 100% sure but that's gotta be a small supplier. 1 pound head 2 ounce body. the other (not ordered) would be 8 ounce head 1 ounce body. are those bodies from the same source? they look different. really, i'm leaning toward a custom, very new, or no name supplier. nice baits, the colors are right that's for sure. how much were they if i may ask? confused that head is available in a mold, if i remember good, not real sure about the bodies, never seen those.

I'd look at a tackle shop that specializes in saltwater lures.

I paid $6.51 for them, bodies and head, the bodies are the same thing as each other. I would say the rubber is a bit heavier then 2oz maybe like 5-7oz. The rubber is some very heavy duty stuff, way different then the formula x that everyone is using now but still plenty lively (if that makes sense at all).

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
