Bulldawgs, Curly Sues, Etc w/ leaders

8 posts in this topic

What kind of leaders are people using for these baits? I've started using a straight wire leader, as the clear mono leaders tended to make them run on their sides. Anyone else have this problem?

I'm liking the heavy floro leaders for most everything. I have not had any problem with side running on my dawgs or super d's.

about the only thing that should make them run to the side is if the bait is bent or your snap is messed up.

i use a solid wire leader which lets you snap correct mosttangles instead of ruining the cast. the floro leadersw will not pop off the hook tangles like the wire and you'll waste more casts.

Aside from getting a "dawgball" on the cast occassionally, i'm using flouro leaders for everything except my jerkbait/wtd setup. I won a pile of the stealth one's last year and have zero complaints with them!

I use stealth leaders for these also and no complaints. Very few fouled casts.

Must be the snap on the fluoro leaders I've been getting at Gander. I'll have to head up to Thorne Brothers and get some new ones.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
