I'd like to toss some of these in the tackle box and learn to toss them this summer. I know they are a popular lure and look fantastic in the water. I fish ponds mainly (one shallow and one deep) with one having a lot of cover. Both stay fairly clear except one does get a little more "bronze" colored toward fall. I pretty much fish for anything that's biting and adjust as it goes.
I'd like to build a "starter" kit with of some spinner bait (color/design/size) but I don't know where to start, what to get etc. There always so much out there and I never have a clue where to start with these.

Trailers are an option but i do not use them. I always have a trailer hook though, it has benefited me alot having one. If you want to add a trailer there are single and twin tail grubs to name a couple.
As for fishing a spinnerbait there are a number of different ways. I usually add a few pauses in my retrieve to "kill" it. You can work it with your rod as well or slow roll it on the bottom. Let the fish tell you what they want.
Oh yeah, watch this. Should answer any other question you have!

Color selection really depends on what forage you have in the lakes you are fishing. For the most part I am throwing a new gill color (shown below) because on of the main food sources for our bass are bluegill.
As far as trailers go, I would simply put on a trailer hook and go fishing.

You can throw three colors of spinnerbaits anywhere in the US and not be wrong, a Chartreuse + White, a White, and some sort of 'Gill pattern. I'm partial to Northstar New Gill, myself, too. As far as blade combinations go, I'm very partial to double willow, but will often throw a wide willow as well. Both are very good in multiple situations.
