Your Fav Spinner Bait Color? Trailer?

Recommended Posts

I'm usually using a white or whit/chartuese color without a trailer. Was jus curious what is everybody else fav color in which situation. Do you use trailers?

 

 

One thing I like to do, is buy a cheap wallmart jig and take the skirt off and but various plastics on them. I've had success doing this, especially for smallies in the potomac. Though that was years ago.

I usually use white or chartreuse with no trailer, and black if I'm night fishing or in muddy water

I use a smaller 1/8oz spinner bait with a single  silver blade with the larger or full size blue glimmer skirt. Then I use the mister twister 2" split double tail grub as a trailer, with a trailer hook. Then some yum shad scent and I'm good To go. I like the Colorado or Indiana blades better. Sometimes I. Go up one size in blade

size for more thump. This seems to be the hot setup from shore but you need yo trim the grubs body to fit the hook on the spinner bait and put it on straight so the spinner bait doesn't spin.

 

My stained water to slightly muddy water is the same setup except for a gold Colorado or Indiana blade

With a chartreuse skirt, with a mister twister 2" split double tail grub trailer with a trailer hook. I like the larger sized blade for more thump in stained water.

 

If you can't change the blade sometimes I borrow one from a larger spinner bait. Or just try it as is.

 

If you can't find the 2" split double tail trailers them go with the 4" ones and trim them to fit the hook but leave the split double tail to size. Don't forget the yum shad scent.

 

Now how you use it is very important. I try a slow reel above the sight line first. After a few casts I will slow up so it's below the sight line like in there face approach. Reel it just fast enough to keep the blade thumping. Holding the rod tip up and slow reeling

the spinner bait will allow the blade to be out of the water slapping the water right and left as we reel it. This is the topwater presentation for over weeds. It's topwater action at its finest. There's something about that blade slapping that attracts fish. Even when my Joe's fly bass size blade slaps the water on the cast it calls fish. It's the cup of the blade that does this noise as it hits the water.

 

My deepest thanks to Glenn here for advise on spinnerbaits I finally got the hang of it.

People can guide you but it takes time to figure out a setup that works for your situation.

Don't give up the fish will let you know when you get it right.

I use white, white glimmer, wht/chart, and chartruese spinnerbaits 99% of the time. I also use a white zoom fat albert grub as a trailer 50% of the time.

Like the majority white/chartruese during the day and black with either red or blue at night. Sometimes will use a white twin tail grub on the white/chartruese ones, but this often leads to the spinnerbait not running perfectly straight. Always use a large black grub as a trailer on the black ones at night.

I like a black and red spinner bait at night as well. Usually one with a large colorado blade(s) for more thump.

1/2 oz. Terminator Chrt/Wht or Chrt/Blue/Wht double willow leaf, gold blades. Usually no trailer. If I do use a trailer I'll use either a white split tail or a 4" white curly tail grub.

My favorite spinner bait is a Bass Assault Citrus Shad. Type blades and colors of blades are determined by water clarity and or time of day i'm fishing....

White with no trailer.  I do like to use spinnerbaits with colored blades.

I've got lots of different colors of spinner baits and I switch them out a lot.  Recently I've been fishing clearer water (6.5' secchi disc reading)   I've been fishing a gold/greenish head with a golden shiner skirt, double willow blades.   Mixed results - the past month or so I really haven't found many decent fish shallow                                     so there really hasn't been much of a spinnerbait bite to speak of.
