The Binsky

11 posts in this topic

Last week I went jigging for lake trout, a fish I've never tried before. My fishing buddy recommended something called "The Binsky". I had never heard of it but I was impressed by the action and versatility of it. We didn't catch a thing but I liked the action of the lure.

Today I thought I'd go for trout on the local lake using the Binsky but hooked into 4 nice bass in about 30 minutes. It is apparently what they call a blade bait (I have a hard time keeping up with the terms these days) but can be rigged as a jig or crankbait.

Abybody else use this thing or heard of it?

Blade baits are very good in cold water, especially up here in the north. They are kind of a secret tool for cold water, most arent familiar with them... The most popular method is jig/rip them in fairly deep water (10+ ft) rather than a cast and retrieve. They are very effective in deep water due to their fast sink rate, heavy weight, and nice action.

It was mentioned last year in a post. I have heard of them,but I haven't ordered any yet. They look well build compared to a lot of blade baits on the market right now. Thanks for mentioning these,been wanting to order some awhile now but i forgot about them....lol

Sounds like the same thing as a Silver Buddy which goes along nicely with suspending jerkbaits in the early season

Exactly the same thing! They are fairly hard to come by however, most get them done custom. They are pretty simple, just a metal punchout with lead added.

The Silver Buddy type blade baits are a staple in my arsenal year round. However I have my best luck with them in the late fall of year around dams in rivers. Netcraft has their own version of this simple bait at a reasonable price.

I like blade baits because they don't take up a lot of room in the box, they cast well, and they catch fish. I mostly use them on schoolies, and for vertical jigging. I have some older *** Blades, but I started using one called a Cicada about 3 years ago, and it seems to do a little better than the *** Blades when I let it fall. They make a really tiny one that is great on trout and panfish on an ultralight. I use any color as long as it is silver/blue or silver/red.

I usually dont care for their in house baits, but XPS version is the shizzle. Probably all in my head but the holographic scale patterns look great and give it a realistic baitfish "flash".

Binsky rules -I catch many fish in the cold water months . Probably 200 fish a year on them from NOV through Jan

One of my favorite cold-water baits. Do-It makes a mold so you can roll your own if you're so inclined.

I fish a different blade, based on the old Worden's lure. They vibrate more than any other I've ever fished. I've caught fish ten to one beside a good friend fishing a Silver buddy side by side.
