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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
