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.

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
