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

Bluegill and hot mustard work great for us on the river. Though springtime I am confident with anything gold. Oh, thats right DT10's dont catch any fish..... whistlewhistle

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.

Sorry for the newb question, but is DT short for something? I'd like to look into these a little more, but never really know what you fellas are talking about smile

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.

    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world. 
    • When was the last time? 1835? That was the last time the national debt was paid off.     How would you know that? We've never taken a trillion dollars off the debt EVER.      
    • Lo, many years ago I tried something similar to deal with feral cats at a house that I was renting.   (next door neighbor fed them, and they would come in our garage or climb up under the hood of our cars.)   Covered a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil and wired it to one side of a 700 volt power transformer.  Other side was wired to a half open can of sardines insulated from the foil by a thin layer of plastic.   Primary went to line power.   No cat touched the sardines so long as the electricity was on (several days).   When I turned it off to see what would happen, they ate everything they could get out of the can in a short time.   I hope mice aren't as sensitive or smart. 
    • Pence is governor of Indiana.   Johnson was governor of New Mexico.   Why do you claim Johnson's deal was local, and Pence's was not?   Pence kept actual jobs, Johnson was chasing hypothetical jobs.   Pence benefited residents of his state.  Johnson benefited folks coming in from out of state...     
    • I would avoid one with a touch screen and stick with buttons.  You cannot work a touch screen with gloves on.  I guess it depends if you where gloves.  I have one of each and my Garmin with buttons is the one that gets used.
    • With any luck, we will get out of the debt issue with a period of moderate inflation, just like we did the last time.  5% inflation takes a trillion dollars a year off the debt.   Add 3-4 percent constant dollar growth, and in under a decade the ratio of debt to GDP is cut in half, even allowing for some deficits along the way.   Janet Yellen has already signaled she is willing and ready to let the economy run "hot", ie inflation exceeding the 2% target.     The trick, of course, is to pull it off without anything blowing up.     Now all that remains is to make it happen.
