A TIGER IN THE BRUSH
been beating up the newest member of the Timber Tiger Family of
crankbaits, the Wordenís DC13 that easily reaches down to 13 feet on
10 lb. test line. The DC in
the Timber Tiger family stands for Depth Control with the number
following indicating the expected depth with 10 lb. test line.
The newest family member is 2 1/8 inches long and weights 5/16 of
an oz. Really the bass have been doing the beating and Iíve been
doing the catching. I know
where a hump is in one of the many Pits at Hunting Sports Plus that the
bass can just stack on. The
little DC13 begs to be smacked as it crawls down the hump.
The bass have been doing a great job of killing this new
Iíve had the honor of using the whole family of Timber Tiger
Crankbaits, this new one is fast becoming my new favorite.
It covers the depth area I find I can catch a lot of bass - the
10 to 14 foot range. I can
even go shallower if I use 20 lb. test line and hold the 7 foot All Star
at 1:00. If I go with 8 lb.
test with the All Star almost touching the water I can just hit 15 foot. My comfort range most of the time is covered with the new
DC13. Itís a bassís
comfort zone to most of the year.
DC13 has the same great family design that provides the ability to
wiggle through the brush and not hang up.
The Timber Roller ridge on the lip and the guard fins protect the
hook points from the brush and timber like no other crankbait available!
It can be cranked as fast as you can turn the handle without
losing itís ability to track true. This bait has a violent flight and fright action that fish
key in on. This action is
extremely important in catching bass.
This action tigers strikes without the bait making contact with
the bottom or other structure.
DC13 is available now in 45 colors, 17 new ones. Colors that are mainly extremely natural to some new wild
ones. Two new ones that
will be a hit in the clear ozark waters is # 242 Transparent Brown Craw
Orange Accents and # 239 Columbia Squawfish/Smelt.
#226 will see a lot of action too, being Gold with a Black Back.
You can bet these will be in my Ranger when I head to the clear
waters to hunt for bass. Three
new reds are in the line up too for when we head to Lake Fork.
Dion Hibdon picked out some of new colors to try and while I
wonít disclose the ones I ordered the Hibdonís, you can bet Dion was
matching the hatch more than goiní wild and crazy!
