I have 2 of them, and they are the size that is close to a pound. I have thrown them a little, but I haven't really figured them out. Seems I have to work them slow to keep the lure to run straight. The plastic/rubber seems very strong on these baits. If I could only get them to run the way I want them to......

As for color, that really depends on the lake and its forage. Match the hatch and you will be fine. More natural colors in clear water I have found work for me.

I love them, will catch several fish before being tore up. I work mine like a dawg, rip it. Color is up to your area and preference though.

I love them too, I add a weight to the front to get them to run the way I want. It's tough to work them fast and get them deep.

Bulldawgs have been bad in the past, all the one's i've gotten within the last 2 months have been very good. Thorne has mag dawgs for $12 while they last.

I have the 9, 11, and 13" sue's. Walleye, black, sucker, black and orange are all good choices. I'm looking to get some of the shallow versions this winter to use as surface baits next year.

I like the walleye color, and yes I have noticed they hold up better. They also don't seem to foul as much on the cast which to me is the biggest difference and probably why they do hold up better.

Hey not trying to hijack the post, but if you want the durable of the durable -- try a swamp donkee -- they have similar action to the sues and dawgs -- but the body is made form solid mold plastic. These babies are durable -- the tails are soft and replaceble/ interchangable. Just another option to consider.

I've used a swamp donkey, they are cool and very durable/user friendly, but IMO the tail doesn't even come close to having the same action as a dawg/superd/sue. It's stiffer and shorter.

I had the same problem. I changed leaders and after that they worked fine. Prefer the Sues over the Dawgs, but have also found the northerns love them.
