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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    •   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
