How heavy is it?? Dawgs can be too much for standard spinning setups so just be careful you aren't overloading your rod.

Dunno what weight it is Andy......but it's half the size of the one posted with only 1 treble at the base. Doesn't feel overly heafty. By overloading do you mean for repetitive casting and suchlike?

It's a springdawg by the sounds of things. It should be ok. Overloading just means casting something beyond the limits of your tackle, like a big lure on a light setup.

I use bulldawgs and deviants on my local reserviores and find a slow steady retreave to induce takes even in the worst conditions.I prefer the six inch versions with the front trebble removed ,the rear trebble can be nicked into the belly to reduce snagging. Very Happy

top man deadbait for clipping large top hook off, i have never used them but , i have seen the damage that top hook has done to the roof of a pikes mouth, when my mate was using them. he dosn't use them with the top hook anymore. pike must allways come first.
i take my hat off to you.

I have a couple of bulldawgs, they keep trespassers out of the garden scratch

No, really, I have a couple of the lures. Haven't caught a thing on them. They sink like a brick and scrape a channel along the lake bed, snagging on everything along the way.

I suppose they will be better used in the deeper waters of glacial lakes. Is that where they made there names.

If anyone wants my two you can have them. afro

Take it your not a fan then, Andy Razz

I'm gradually getting to have a collection of various Lures, all these Jerkbaits, Crankbaits etc.. etc.... Rolling Eyes I am going to stick with the lure fishing over the Summer & Autumn, get the statics: Smelt, Lamprey's etc.. out for the colder winter weather. I LOVE the mobility of lure fishing Very Happy

You noticed I don't like, nay HATE the things, Bazz

I, like you, have bought a selection of different types of lure. That way I can make my own mind up on their usefulness. I have come to realise there are a lot of bad lures out there. A handful of great ones too. It's an expensive business but I am now saving money by concentrating on avoiding the bad ones. For this reason I am prepared to spend more on the good ones.
