New Cotton Cordell lures

8 posts in this topic

Anyone see the latest lure by cotton cordell on the shelves yet. I forgot the name but it is sopposed to be a sweet lure. Like a shad rap but twice as heavy for great casting ability and dives to 20+ feet of water and runs true to 10 miles an hour, Not that I would troll that fast anyway. I heard the field testers were very amazed buy the fish it brings in as well!

Rainman-

The lure you're talking about is called the "Grappler Shad", and was tested on Mille Lacs by a buddy of mine. From what I've heard, they do an amazing job.
Fleet Farm in Oakdale is carrying them, and I picked up a few over the weekend to try on Pool 2. The cast a mile, run true, and caught fish for me ripping them on the faces of wingdams. Thumbs up from this guy!

Thanks Fish,
I have got to get me some of these. What did you have to fork out for them? If you don't mind me asking. Also is your buddies name Steve Dezurik? Just curious! I have read alot of his posts! I want to go fishing with him sometime on pool 2, I fished that pool for the first time this last year and caught quite a few fish. Now I want to learn more about this pool!

I picked some up at gander in fridley. $4 a piece. The 25% off sale they had last week put them at about $3. What a deal

The CD15 GRAPPLER SHAD is a nifty lure, a real digger.

They come in 24 color paters too.

The CD12 C.C. Shad is a favorate of mine too. Caught a mess of fish on them!

One of my favorates for shallow water walleye is the CS85 Suspending Ripplin’ Red Fin. The original and the suspending model has hung many a hog in the fall for me.

The CW79 Wally Demon is a big producer too. I like the way they trip over snags and hang-up less. A good river diver where trash is a worry.

Last but not least the CS7 & CS8 Wally Minnow. They run well and deep at ultra-slow speeds, great cold water walleye diggers.

Those are my top picks for Cotton Cordell on divers.

For shallow runners I find Bomber 15A's or Smithwicks, both hard to beat.

Rainman-

I paid the same price as Gander has them... 3.99. But, like Mike mentioned with 25% off deal... you can't go wrong there! Plus, you could pick up a couple of Ed's recommendations as well. I have used a couple he is talking about, and have had great luck with the ones I have used.

Yes, DeeZee is a buddy of mine. I'd HIGHLY recommend booking him for a day, as you will learn alot about fishing Pool 2. I know I did! I think he will be back down here in September for the fall. I'd suggest taking a trip with him sometime before the fall bite really kicks in, as he will show you how to effectively fish wingdams with plastics for BIG fall walleyes. Once the bite starts, it's unbelievable at times.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
