Charlie Brewer's Sliders

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had any experience using Charlie Brewer's sliders. I was looking to purchase some and am interested in the weedless slider heads and was wondering what size and which one to use as there are many to choose from. Some say that some of the hooks are stronger than others and I was looking for recommendations on that as well as which colors and size sliders that are preferred. Thanks, Tommy

I use the spider classic heads, and the spider pro heads for all my weedless bassin. The only caution is the weights aren't exact, but they do go from lighter to heavier at least. Leaving some high salt baits rigged for a long time, you will see some rust on the classic hooks, but I haven't seen that happen on the pro heads. 

I have only had one classic hook fail and it was this year, in over 10 years of use, a rather large WI bass straightened the hook out on me, not sure what happened, because I have caught 5lb bass and pike on those hooks. I also like using these, because since they are over an inch, the likely hood of a loon or other water bird ingesting one and getting lead poisoning is very small. I honestly can't remember the last time I tossed a traditional Texas rig setup. 

The football head one has also done well for me as well.

I use open hooks and pour my own jig heads.  As for colors when we ordered we just called them up and go 1/2 dozen packs of everything that they had.  I've caught fish on just about every color.  It is what we use for ned fishing most of the time.

For my lake fishing I mostly use the 1/4 ounce heads, and on the river I use the 3/16 ounce heads because the current dictates that size. I have used the 

Lighter heads, but I rarely fish that slow anymore.

I like the Slider Pro in 1/8oz. Black is the only color I get.
