BullDawg repair

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
