Cowgirl/Mojo XX/DC-10

Anyone know how thick the #10 blades are on these? .025, .032, .040? Thanks.

I do know that the blades for DCGs and DC's are .025... Im not sure about Mojo's... I think .040 but I could be wrong... Maybe I'm thinking that Mojo uses .062 instead of .051 for the wire shaft... You can email Luke Breyer and ask...

Thanks much, have any idea about Shumways Giant Flasher? Also, with the success of these baits, how important is overall length? Is it mostly the big double blades or is the overall length also a factor? For instance, is a double #10 bucktail with a length of 13-15" gonna be a better big fish producer than a double #10 bucktail with a length of 8-10"? I won't get into flashabou vs rubber vs marabou - but we could cool

Sorry... no idea about Shumway Giant Flasher...

I believe, with countless other insights in regards to the DB-10's, its the blade that matters the most... the vibration... the thumping...

I believe that the length doesnt matter, its the thump that matters then the overall profile of the lure itself that comes in second...

IMO, I'd rather be fishing DB-10's made with Flashabous and Marabous over rubber... Flashabous and Marabous seems to give out a bigger profile... and they really pulsates... they really do seem to be alive and breathing... but thats just my preference... after all Llungen has a great success with their DC's...

I'll have to disagree with you slightly there Reb. If only those flashers and giant flashers looked in the water like they do puffed out in the air. But alas, the marabou lays down quite a bit. Still a great bait and they've caught us a few fish, but I'll take the silicone every time with its swirling and twirling skirt. We have fished the DCG and the DC almost equally since last August. Ten on the DC and 6 on the DCG, though that could have been other influences while we happen to be throwing one or the other. All 3 great baits.

Thanks guys, if I may ask Luke, why .025"? I'll guess anything heavier would be tough to get started?

.025" blades spin further out from the shaft than the .040" ones do. This gives more thump, but also means more pull. You just have to work a little harder to get the speed out of them.

The thicker ones spin closer to the shaft allowing more speed, but a little less vibration. The thicker ones are also a little harder to get started.

IMO, both blades can have their time and place, and fish eat both of them.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
