BullDawg repair

9 posts in this topic

Just bought a new Magnum Bulldawg and while using it today a small pike hit and tore the tail. Is there any way that you can fix these? I tried a hot glue gun and that did not work. I just hate to throw away a brand new lure.

super glue and sew it back togeather with 10# power pro or heat an old fillet knife tip and melt it back togeather. A soldering gun works well to for melting. I but Super D's and get multiple fish on them before they need any repairs. I got tired of dawgs self destructing.

Thanks I will try that. Where can I get the super Ds?? Other than ordering on line. I am fairly close to Reeds but I haven't seen them in there before maybe they have them now.

Ruger... Tacklebooty is all you need to know to find James and his SuperD... I can say that they're EXCELLENT... I placed an order of 15 before the season opened... and his customer service is EXCELLENT... In fact... he gets so excited when hes getting negative feedbacks on his lures... because you bet he'll be doing something ASAP to rectify the problem...

I can't say enough about James and his customer service. He truly does care about his customers and makes sure they are satisfied with his lures. I have 8 super Ds on the way, hopefully get them tomorrow.

Funny, I was just doing this yesterday......

I'll melt tails but look to glue on the tip/nose when the weight pulls thru, there just doesn't seem to be enough rubber there to melt.

Best fix for a bulldawg is to throw it away and buy a superD from tacklebooty or a Curly Sue from Shack Attack lures.

I have several Curly Sue's with 5-6 fish and WEEKS of casting on them that have only tooth marks and still holding up well.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .

    • How in the world did this advertisement not get zapped?
    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
