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.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
