Hey,

I've missed a couple of big muskies on the "cowbell" lately. I see the hit, feel the hit and then they are off. The hooks are sticky and I can't figure out why this is happening, it's really pissing me off. Does anyone wait a second, like with topwater, before setting a hook with the DCG? I've been using the purple skirt and copper blades on really clear water, maybe silver blades would make them engulf the lure more.

Later,

Tim

Is anyone having any luck on these things lately? The DCG has been one of the top in my rotation lately, still only pike landed. It requires some maintenance but is a fun one to use if your up to the challenge, these things are like reeling in a wet sock!

Not the Cowgirl, but with a custom bucktail with 2 #10 blades I've caught one and recently got 2 follows. You definitely need a low ratio reel and a power handle to throw these things for more than 10 casts

I used one for a few of hours this morning with my Penn 955 and a medium heavy 8' rod. Not too bad of a bait on the Penn, which is a lower ratio reel as Dan mentioned. Certainly didn't feel like a wet sock to me, though it thumps very nicely.

If you use the "Cowbell" for more than an hour you will feel it . I have a new elbow brace to prove it . I have had a few follows but I am losing confidence quickly . Sticking with it could be the difference in a big fish so I will keep going till I blow out my elbow . <<<<><<<

Tom,

Looks like a bad case of cowbell elbow, I usually switch baits before it gets that bad. Keep fishing til you blow out your elbow?, Your a musky fishing machine!

Is Bushkill Tom wearing a "Mansier"?????

Nice to see you've been working out! All of those rumors about the massive consumption of Ho-Ho's must be false...
