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.

is there a new YP color? Cuz I have a DT6 in that color. Just bought it last month. I'm not sure if its a new scheme or just the standard YP, but hey, looks fine to me

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.
