6 Spinnerbaits

Recommended Posts

If you could carry 6 spinnerbaits to cover as many situations as possible what would they be? Color, blade combinations and weight.

This is a true exercise in futility for me. Having said that, I will keep it simple. Two of the following colors, white, black, and chartreuse. Each color consisting of a Colorado blade and a double willow leaf in gold and silver. All of them will be 1/2oz.

1. (Obviously) White/Chartruese 3/8oz double willow

2. Blue glimmer shad pattern 3/8oz double willow

3. Bluegill pattern 3/8oz double willow.

4. Black/Red 1/2oz single colorado for muddy water and night fishing

5. White/Chartruese 1oz large single willow "ledgebuster" for deep slow-rolling

6. 1/2oz double willow with skirt removed and a swimbait threaded on the hook (shushhhh :whistle: )

 

These 6 choices can cover all water depths and temps, as well as account for clarity and forage species.

3/8oz tandem Colorado/willow leaf War Eagle in Sexy Mouse

3/8oz  tandem Colorado/Indiana Booyah chart/white

1/2oz double willowleaf War Eagle Screaming Eagle in Spot Remover

5/16 tandem Colorado/Oklahoma War Eagle Finesse in white

5/16 tandem Colorado/Oklahoma War Eagle Finesse chart/white

1/2 tandem Colorado/willow leaf 50/50 blades custom chart/white

 

I don't fishing spinnerbaits very often, hard for me to even come up with 6 honestly. Funny thing is, I probably carry 100 different spinnerbaits and these are the only 6 I fish with any regularity.  :laugh5:

I would  just get 4 advantage spinnerbaits.  The blades are interchangeable and so are the skirts. 1/4 , 1/2, 3/8 , 3/4.  Gill, white,  gizzard,  chart white.   Just keep extra blades and skirts so you can mix and match.  You can have 4 spinnerbaits that service multiple different purposes just by having extra skirts and blades on hand.

This is easy for me as I normally use the "6-pack" when trying new water.

 

1.  1/4oz double willow -  color depends on conditions.

 

2.  1/4oz Indiana/Colorado tandem - color depends on conditions.

 

3. 3/8oz double willow - color depends on conditions

 

4. 1/2oz double willow - color depends on conditions.

 

5. 1/2oz Indiana/Colorado tandem - color depends on conditions.

 

6. 1/2oz single Colorado - Black and Red with Brass or black nickel blade.

 

 

Those 6 will cover all your bases fairly well, there are a lot more but those are basic, the 1/4oz bait is small so you aren't going to want a thumper blade in that size. A 3/8oz double willow is what I call an all purpose bait, the reason I only have one is because the 1/4oz with the tandem Indiana/Colorado will cover the smaller, hard vibrating bait and the 1/2oz covers the larger area so you don't need to have one in the middle too, but you can go with a single 1/4oz double willow and add the tandem to the 3/8oz is you like the heavier side. The reason I don't have any single blade thumpers in smaller sizes is because of the lift, you need at minimum a 1/2oz bait for a thumper as it won't lift as fast as the smaller ones. This list will cover shallow burning to mid depth slow rolling and everywhere in between.

I´ve got over 100 spinnerbaits, do I need them ? nope, why ? cuz I end up fishing with the same old:

 

3/8 oz single gold Tennessee blade white & chartreuse skirt

3/8 oz single nickel Tennessee blade black skirt

3/8 oz tandem gold white & chartreuse skirt

3/8 oz tandem gold chartreuse & lime skirt

1/2 oz copper double willow white skirt

 

See, I don´t even need 6 I do well with 5. BTW, the black skirted one is only used during very low light conditions ( from sunset till dawn ) so that will make it more 4 than 5.

 

Why I got so many if I only use so few  ?  well ..... I like to spend money stupidly in tackle.

1/4 oz    Terminator T-1    Oklahoma/Colorado  Gold/Nickel

1/4 oz    Terminator T-1    Willow/Colorado  Nickel/Nickel

3/8 oz    Terminator T-1    Willow/Colorado Gold/Nickel

3/8 oz    Terminator T-1    Oklahoma/Colorado  Gold/Nickel

3/8 oz    Terminator T-1    Double Willow  Nickel/Nickel

1/2 oz    Terminator T-1    Oklahoma/Colorado Gold/Nickel

 

I'm not going to list color, because that depends on conditions and being that they're all Terminators, they all come with quick skirts so I would be able to swap colors as needed. With that combination of baits too, I could swap blades to make my own personal combination. That being said I still carry 35-40 around with me lol

Oh yeah, nothing is more eye opening than seeing you only have 6 inches of boat before the water starts pouring in, time to remove some stuff.
