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

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.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
