Spinnerbaits Your Brand

Recommended Posts

Since I have come to the realization that who I have been using is no longer I need a new resource.....Any suggestions looking more on the side of custom made but did like some I saw at Revenge.

I've been using Revenge spinnerbaits for about 4-5yrs now. Really nice looking with quality components. I had one break last year for the first time while reeling it in. The arm snapped. I have decided to try out War Eagles this year and so far, they are great spinnerbaits. I notice they are a little easier to reel in too.

Under Glenn's suggestions here I been using the Mann's classic spinnerbaits. From shore I like the smaller 1/4oz. Gold Colorado blades, with the blue glimmer skirt with a mister twister 4" split double tail grub for a trailer with a trailer hook with a shot of YUM shad scent. I set up the Mann's classic in chartreuse the same way but in chartreuse.

I also use the smaller strike king 1/8oz spinnerbaits too. I set them up like the Mann's classic using the blue glimmer skirts or the hot chartreuse skirts and using the mister twister 2" split double tail grub as a trailer or I trim the 4" split double tail grub to fit the smaller 1/8oz. Spinnerbaits.

I use the smaller spinnerbaits from shore. The 1/8oz. to 1/4oz. When setup right work really well.

The grub trailer has to be installed exactly on the centerline of the spinnerbaits so it runs exactly vertical and doesn't spin around. I also prefer the Colorado gold blades too. But my water conditions are slightly stained to stained most of the time.

Through trial and error I figured out what setup works here. Maybe a different setup may work where you are. But you understand a basic starting point. Now you just have to refine it and steel it in.

Sometimes Mann's are hard to find. When a lure is hard to find I go to Amazon.com

I almost exclusively use War Eagle.  I know you were asking for a custom.  So the ones I have been looking into lately are Sieberts spinner baits or Megastrike's.  I have purchased some specialized scroungers from Revenge.  So I bet those would be the real deal too.

There are dozens of good brands of spinnerbaits out there, even before you get into custom manufacturers.  I tend to use Terminators and War Eagles.

However, every time I walk into any fishing tackle store, I look to see if they have any custom spinnerbaits.  If they do, I always buy some, just for my collection if for nothing else.  I'd hate to count all the spinnerbaits in my collection - several hundred easily.  The vast majority of them will never see water, but they are a valued part of my collection.

I am fishing MegaStrike StrikeBack and Siebert Outdoors Cosmic.

Both brands are built with superior components and built to last.

One adjustment I make on all spinnerbaits is replacing the skirt

with Lumaflex skirts.

war eagle for "specialty" colors. but if I am throwing a white or white/chart then I have been using either BPS or H20 because they are cheap, effective and easily replaceable.

I fish Stanley, Mann's, Booyah, and SK  mostly, but I seldom fish them with the stock blades or skirts. I've found a few blade combinations/sizes that work well, and use whatever weight head for the speed/fall I want. I'm on a good spinnerbait bite now, only regret is the Jerkbait bite was short this year.

I don't have any custom baits, so I don't have any suggestions on that topic.  Hart, Stanley and Terminator titanium get my custom treatments or I'll fish them straight from the pkg.

My favorite is the pepper hawg spinnerbait from pepperjigs.com. Terminators used to be my favorite but the quality has gone down, especially for the double willows, as the smaller front blade often won't even spin. I also love Nichols spinnerbaits, as they make custom lures for you. Plan on trying some war eagle and revenge, and hoping Northstar comes back strong soon. But pepper hawgs and nichols are the best companies that make custom ones IMO.

I have a strike back that I bought from all the high praises from you, and wouldn't you know it's the only spinnerbait I own that hasn't caught a single fish.

My War Eagles on the other hand get gobbled up. :-)

Not custom, but I mainly use Terminators. They're hard to beat!
