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.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
