David Fritts wins another with the DT

Recommended Posts

Congrats to Fritts who took the Guntersville FLW with a Rapala DT-10.

Also recently won the Clarks Hill in October on the DTs (blowing away 2nd by over 10 lbs.!)

I don't understand it....he's just using plain old yellow and shad colored Rapalas.....how could he possibly blow away the competition without any "Sexy Shad" cranks? ;D ;D ;D

Maybe one day he'll learn.... ;)

He said he won the Clarks Hill on a DT. Some of us know that wasn't the case. Oh well he's got to support his sponsors.

Fritts is well known for never being totally honest about how he caught his fish. Even after the tournament is over. Some of my friends were watching him catch his fish and they all said he was using a white Fat Free Shad.

You got to wonder about the "honesty" of any pro when he says what he won on, he has sponsers to answer to.  Anyway, I've never used the DT series, what type action does it have? ( Is that the bait monkey biting me on the back of the neck? Or, is the "pro's " endorsement working?   )

Sound like Chicago Politics to me. Aren't there cameramen or boats with or following the top guys? I remember seeing KVD pulling in a bunch of fish on a fat free shad and said he caught his fish on Strike King series 5 "Sexy Shad". Cameras don't lie. He later did say he caught a few on the bomber. Makes you wonder that if you don't actually see it can you believe it. We need a congressional investigation into this matter.

I like DTs and the Fat Free Shad. It all comes back to using the lures that work for you. I don't usually go out and buy a lure because a pro states it was his winning lure. That lure may not work for me. We see it all the time in discussions on this forum. Some people love particular lures while others couldn't catch a cold with them. I use what has always worked for me. If something new becomes a trend and numerous people are buying it and successfully fishing it, then I'll try it. Unfortunately, this puts me behind the curve on new lures, but in the meantime, I'm still catching fish. ;)

1 thing Fritts does that I've never done is throw a Chartreuse and brown brankbait.  I look at that and think that's the ugliest/unproductive looking color I've ever seen.  But at the Clarks Hill tourney he caught at least 1 on camera with that color and early reports are used that color on Guntersville.

How dare you talk about my boy Fritts like that.  ;)

What those guys may have thought was a Fat Free Shad was probably that bone colored DT20 that he was using. Do you actually think these dudes were actually close enough to Fritts' boat to accurately see what brand crank he was throwin? I doubt it too. ;D
