Bull Dawgs

13 posts in this topic

What are the differences between regular bull dawgs and uptown bull dawgs? Both models have weighted and unweighted dawgs. Is it just the colors that are different or the action is different?

The Uptown dawgs are made supposed to be made with a softer plastic, although I haven't noticed a big difference between the plain and uptown's. The action is the same. Really the only difference is the colors. I really liked the holo shad color, until I got rid of all my dawgs in favor of curley sue's.

Rob, thanks. Out of question- Do you guide on Cass Lake or just fish it often? Id guess I would do most of my ski fishing on Cass this summer, look for me building a home on Andrusia

Quack... you'd might want to check out SuperD swimbaits by Tacklebooty... They're just like Bulldawgs... but from what I know... whole lot cheaper and yet built better... there was a video on youtube comparing SuperD vs Bulldawg... SuperD won easily... as the bulldawg was totally destroyed long before SuperD was... I ordered 15 from Aaron and got them today... definitely love them... Cant wait to use them... several colors are similar to bulldawgs so no worries there...

Yeah I checked them out on Aarons site and they seem similar and probably have same or close action as the bull dawg provides us. I guess you cant go wrong on both, the price is a little less as well. BUT 15 of them!!! thats alot haha, just checked out the video and who honestly does that to their own lures, I know that I dont!! whistle

15... different colors... just never know which one works on a specific day... Impty I got both pink ones grin

The owner did that... insane but thats free advertising right there... I dont do that to my lures either... but you know how some muskies can be... with their razor sharp teeth... If I can remember right... pricing is about $4-$6 less for SuperD...

Also, correct me if Im wrong, the owner of Tacklebooty would rather get negative emails about his product than positives so that he will know what he could do to make his products better...

Reb:

you hit the nail on the head about James. He is all about building a better product and really likes to get the feedback from the guys using his baits. Top notch baits made by a topnotch guy. He is also developing some other baits for later this summer, and I know he wanted to buy out the Manta Company, but don't think that will happen!

If you think 15 is alot of Super D's, I have over 40 of them sitting in my basement right now!! shocked

I have 10 Super D's that i just bought this year and they are very nice and for the price cant beat em. Got them all off that big auction site and yeah the maker is very cool to deal with.

Quackaddict,

I don't guide on Cass, but I'm on the water pretty much every day during the summer. If you ever want any info just let me know, I'd be more than happy to help. I usually hang out here or over in the Cass chain forum. Building a home on Andrusia? Nice! What part of the lake?

Thats cool, I'll get ahold of you if I need some info, maybe bump in you on the water one of these days. We have a shed building up out there right now and there is a log home thats almost done on the right side of our lot...the lot is on the East side before the first point, right by the hill with the Flag Pole. Does Mick Finn ring a bell? our lot is right next to his house.

Those Super D's look like a pretty cool bait for sure... But for me, this is going to be the year of the Swamp Donkey!!! Toughest swim bait ever made.

I do like the Bulldawgs, success is simply hard to argue with.

Sure, they require terminal tackle upgrades (splits/hooks), and durability is an issue, but they produce. I keep a tube of super glue in the dawg boxes, it works as an "on the fly repairs". A lighter works too......

I use the reg size as much if not more than the mags, stretched out they're over 11 inches, meaning they have the profile, and are far easier to cast versus the "lob" of a mag dawg. Mags are nice when I want to hit deeper water.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
