DCG questions

4 posts in this topic

I've never thrown a DCG or similar inline spinning musky lure before, but just wanted some verification on design/function/action of the lure as I'm pondering making some custom spinner/bucktails of my own.

My general understanding is that this lure is just an oversized inline spinner, with two blades rotating in the same direction, complete with some kind of skirt(flashabou seems popular), and two treble hooks. If there's something I'm missing please correct me.

Why two blades? Is the action produced by two blades significantly different somehow than just one? Does anyone here fish a similarly designed lure but with one blade?

How important is a stinger treble hook? Do you get a lot of fish short-biting this lure?

With TWO, GIANT spinning blades, do you get tons of line twist? I know that even a swivel ahead of an inline spinner won't completely reduce 100% of the line twist, so how do you handle this issue?

I have noticed that one of the two blades on DCGs and DCG copycats often has a circular reflective sticker on it. Is this just to attract fishermen, or fish?

thats it for now but i'll probably think of some more soon.

Two big blades means more vibration, flash, plus it gets that flashibou skirt pulsing real nice.

It comes with two large trebles no need to add any stinger hooks.

Line twist has not been an issue at all for me and shouldnt be for most considering most use baitcasters and learders(swivels).

The stickers are more of a company label than an attractor I would beleive.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
