Notice About Double Dawgs

Here is a few pics of a few Musky Innovation Double Dawgs that I painted some time ago. These were painted on a special order pearl white blank that sold out very fast last fall. I have several other folks contact me wanting some of the baits painted but I couldn't get any more blanks........Well, I just got word from Aaron at Musky Tackle Online that he has obtained 10 more white Double Dawg blanks. These are the Double Dawgs that can be custom painted in your favorite color/pattern.
These are the only Double Dawgs that I will attempt to paint in custom colors and there are only 10 pieces available at the time of this post.
If your interested in getting some of these Double Dawgs painted just contact Aaron at Musky Tackle Online to order them.
If you like..... you can order them from MTO and have them shipped direct to me for painting....just tell Aaron you want them shipped to me

Here's is the link Musky Tackle Online's website

These are in limited supply and will go quick.... so if your interested you better not wait or they'll be gone.

Sizes and Styles

Here's a couple different shots of some of the more popular bodies. Some are solid bodies and some are split bellies of various styles.
From left....
9" Shad
6" Shad
5" Fat Shad
9" Curl Tail Shad
6" Paddletail
These can be rigged several different ways but the most popular is on a jig head.
Next is the split bellies
9" Shad Split Belly
6" Paddletail Split Belly
These two work best when rigged on one of the weighted swim bait hooks that are so popular today.
9" Fork Tail Split Belly Shad
7" Fork Tail Split Belly Minnow
These two can be used as a twitch /jerk bait, When rigged weedless on a unweighted swim bait hook these can be used in and around the heaviest cover.
The last body on the far right is a solid body 7" Fork Tail.
I sometimes use this as a trailer on a jig when fishing along the bottom or as a trailer on a big spinnerbait.

The following photo shows a size comparison between A Big Boy, a 8" Big Paddletail, a 6" Paddletail, the Widetail and a Ribbontail.

A Few More Colors

A buddy and I took a little time away from work , this week and we decided to spend an afternoon on the water. With the unseasonably warm weather we've been having...especially for February, it made for a very pleasant day on the water. It had been way to long since I'd been out so I really had a good time....and the fact that the fish were biting pretty good didn't hurt either.

Here's a decent bass I got. This is probably the biggest of the 2-3 dozen we caught

My buddy Mike with one of the bigger crappies we got.

In addition to the bass and crappies we also caugh a catfish or two and a striper of about 5 -6 lbs.
One of the cool things about being on the water when during different times of the year is seeing some of the wildlife that you don't normally see.
Here's a pic I shot of what appears to be a river otter just before it went into the water and disappeared.

Overall it was time well spent at least for me...but I think Mike had a pretty good time too.
