  1. Past hour
  2. I'm convinced just about any spinnerbait will catch bass in the spring . I use a lot of maufacturers plus ones I pour . A good choice year round for me is 1/2 ounce Gold willow rear blade , Colorado front blade with some chartreuse in the skirt . Make sure it has a quality swivel because a lot of bites come when the lure is paused and those blades need to keep spinning .
  3. Yo Zuri Hybrid. It may not be 'according to Hoyle' co-poly, but what is significant, is that it is great stuff....up to 12#....and amazing stuff with KVD line spray.
  4. They really seem too. I rig them with either Shad Impacts or Burbbling Shakers and fish them just faster then the current, just ticking the bottom to gauge depth. I think the shape of the jighead, the angle/location of the line tie, and the overall light weight of the package all help keep it from snagging. I have fished this rig a fair bit wading the upper Potomac and I focus on steering the jig back to me safety, I only really seem to loose them when they wrap around the plentiful wood debris. These are also great as are the very similar Decoy Nail Bomb heads.
  5. Owner Ultrahead Finesse Jig Head is another that comes through rock extremely well
  6. I must have bought a bad spool of Yo Zuri Hybrid a few years back. I really didn't like it, but to each their own. I've been using Silver Thread Copoly since the early 90s. I really like the abrasion resistance when I'm fishing rocks for smallmouth, and it doesn't have the memory that some other lines have.
  7. It’s actually a SK Shellcracker. Great plastic with a very subtle action. They are a huge pia to get rigged stright however.
  8. Sooo much good information in this article and the ones linked below it: https://www.bassresource.com/fish/spinnerbaits.html

  11. I like that! nice colors on the floater... looks peaceful where that pic was taken
  12. In similar situations, I will always fish topwater when viable, as topwater won't get snagged. Also you can usually fish a moving bait if you pay close attention to reeling so it only hits the rocks but does not sink down to the rocks where it can get stuck. Football head jigs are designed to not get stuck in rocks, but it does depend on the rocks of course too. Finally, finesse baits like a ned rig or a drop shot with the long cylinder shaped weights also don't tend to get stuck, but might not be the best option if you have current to contend with.

  14. Challenge the whole .01 acres thing, that's like the size of my bed room (including the gabled alcove).

  16. Hello! It's pre-spawn here in Rhode Island and I'm really trying to get into selecting the perfect spinnerbait for my conditions (I normally fish from the bank). Spinnerbaits are killers this time of year and I wanna fish them correctly. So, I was wondering: what are your general rules of thumb for selecting blade type (willow leaf, Indiana, Colorado) and color for your blades? I think I understand the skirt type should be brighter for dirty water and realistic/darker for clear water - but not entirely sure where one blade color and type would benefit over the other? Thanks a lot!

    Fish Eyes

    I dont know how big of a role eyes have in getting bites with crankbaits but I'm convinced when slowly fishing a jig and grub combo in a nearby river during cold water periods , eyes make a difference .
  21. I've tried the braid to fluoro , and it does have advantages but just not enough for me to justify the extra knot between me and the fish. Clearly it works you see lot of pros using it especially with finesse techniques , but just a confidence thing with me I guess
  22. Those Keitechs aren't cheap either. You think the smaller tungsten heads help?
