DT10 Question

22 posts in this topic

I am trying to get into using crankbaits more for bass. What patterned DT10's do you guys like the best? (I have the sunfish and baby bass patterns). Should I get other DT models than the DT10 to start with or is that one versatile enough? Thanks in advance for your info.

Depends on the water you fish bud... If fishing more stained waters, like we have here in the C.L. area once the curly pond weed dies, I like the crazy stuff.. my personal fave is the Purple Shiner(purple back chartruece sides.) I also like Hot Mustard. For clear water I like the green back gold sides.

Hiya -

I fish mainly clear water up north, and I could probably get by with Bluegill 95% of the time. Parrot, silver, and shad are good too. When I do fish darker water, Parrot, purple shiner and hot mustard are good to have around.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

My fav colors are bluegill and the hot mustard. The other colors are good too, and I have always been a fan of the red lures in the spring.

Whatever your color choice besure to try a stop in your retrieve at times there is a little built in triggering qaulity in the DT not many people know about wink

My favorite color would be PARROT but HOT MUSTARD and BLUEGILL have seen the end of the line at times

I usually try to match the forage I'm seeing in clear water; Shad, Bluegill, Crawdad or Perch. Stained water I'm a fan of chartruese or something flashy if there's sun; Hot Mustard, Firetiger, Blue Shad or Parrot.

Good call Tonka. That Yellow Perch pattern is one of the best, most natural looking colors I've seen come down the pike in a long time. I'd jump on that in a heartbeat, if they made it availible.

No, I they don't make one yet, but I have seen it in the shad raps and minnow raps. I think the DT's only come in the perch color for the time being.

Do you guys use the standard DT models or do you use the DT Fats or Flats?

When choosing a crankbait some basic rules are... Square bills deflect off solid cover the best. Fat bodies have a wide wobble while thin bodies have a tight wiggle. Wide wobble for warm water, tight wiggle for cold water. In the summer the most common crankbait out of all of them that are made that I use are the DT10's and the DT16's.

    • I would like to get some recipes to inject a turkey breast, and appx. how long does it take to smoke it? And whats a good wood to use ?
    • Could be that others cheated also.   I was relying on memory about the BMW connection and hypothesized that Mercedes would also have been a possibility.   I did say "maybe mercedes".     In any case, VW cheated on emissions for many years with the assent of the highest levels of management.     Apparently making a small diesel that runs ok and doesn't make too much pollution at an acceptable cost is really hard.
    • License what technology, this kind?        https://www.google.com/amp/www.cnbc.com/amp/2017/04/27/after-vws-record-fine-mercedes-benz-parent-daimler-could-be-next.html     "In light of the ongoing governmental information requests, inquiries and investigations, and our own internal investigation, it cannot be ruled out that the authorities might reach the conclusion that Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles have similar functionalities," Daimler said in its newly released quarterly report. The maker first acknowledged in January that authorities had begun probing its handling of diesel emissions. That was the same month that VW agreed to settle a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department, a federal judge this past week approving the payment of a $2.8 billion fine. Almost 40 times the legal limit In the VW case, the mainstream German automaker rigged the software controlling two diesel engines to recognize when a vehicle was undergoing emissions tests and then adjust pollution levels. In real-world situations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asserted, those powerplants would produce up to 40 times the legal limit for pollutants like smog-causing oxides of nitrogen. Since the scandal broke in September 2015, regulators in the U.S. and the European Union have begun rechecking the emissions claims made by other manufacturers, including Daimler, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and others. In January of this year, the EPA took aim at FCA, alleging that it may have used its own, rigged software on products like the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel which "appeared to cause the vehicles to perform differently when being tested" than when in use in real-world conditions. That same month, Daimler said that what the EPA was concerned about "apparently includ(ed) functionalities that are common in diesel vehicles, as undisclosed Auxiliary Emission Control Devices (AECD)." While the German parent of both the Mercedes-Benz and Smart brands did not confirm it had broken the law, it laid open the possibility that its own diesel emissions strategy could be in trouble. "If these or other inquiries, investigations, legal actions and/or proceedings result in unfavorable findings, an unfavorable outcome or otherwise develop unfavorably, Daimler could be subject to significant monetary penalties, remediation requirements, vehicle recalls, process improvements and mitigation measures," Daimler stated.
    •   Wow, Del I forgot all about that little discussion you started two years ago.  All the fun folks were in on it, even the LIMTOUT. That's what happens when you have short term memory loss and pictures bring on new thoughts and emotions.  Let's just call this threat the "What a dang waste and shame!" More of an aftermath threat?  K   And Del was there, and PFloyd, and Reb and Leech stop by and even the evil LIMTOUT was there! It was a nightmare!    
    • When we had are seasonal campsite I had lots of squirrels. I used all metal feeders. Come Sept them squirrels went in the freezer and cooked up for the wild game feed!
    • If you have been following the story, the reason VW got in this mess is they didn't want to license technology from BMW (or maybe Mercedes) and chose to develop their own.   When it couldn't be made to work properly, they chose to cheat rather than bite the bullet.    Long discussions of what happened as the story broke    
    • I had one of those.  Mine never quite ran right, although I lived with the quirks for years.  I have a pdf of service manual if you want it.   Mine ran rough intermittently at certain rpm.
    • If they make it better because of stupid government mandates it wouldn't bother me at all.   In fact, the Dodge ram diesel that I used to have had something from Daimler Benz that allowed it to meet the standards without DEF. I would not be surprised if they did something similar with those diesels and if they did I applaud them. The best thing anyone can do with the diesel trucks is delete the emissions and unlock the power and economy that are robbed from them.

    • I have to many squirrels, need the feeders with the metal holes.
