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.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
