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.

    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
