The action on the blade dancers are a lot like Jaw Breaker spoons made by Northland Tackle.I can't catch a d**n thing on them either.Love the action but the fish don't.

Agree with all previous posts; had two of 'em looked great going through the water but couldn't get a fish to take it.

THEY SURE HAVE GREAT ACTION THOUGH.

I have a couple of sets of them and have never had a strike on them.  I can't say that I have given them a very fair chance though.  They have to be worked very slow or they will come right to the surface.  Now that I have developed more of a "slow" game I should give them another try.  I do know of a guy who claims he catches bass on them all the time.

  I have recently found a new little private 1 acre pond that is full of fish that will bite about anything you throw at them.  The next time I go I will throw the "Blade dancer" to see if they catch fish there.

there is no logical reason for this thing not to catch bass

it just doesn't.

I am happy to see that I am not the only one to get "hooked".

Well, you never know until you try, I guess.

At least you only bought1 pack Gr8Wall. I bought many. ;)

I must admit, it is fun to watch the bluegill look at them though. :o

They'll be going in the bin with my Chatterbaits and a few other lures that never seem to work for me...

Even pike that are hitting everything will not touch this bait. I was surprised when I seen the weedless bladedancer released, they must be fooling a lot of people. The thing that disappoints me (besides the bait being worthless) is that Al Linder endorsed this piece of junk.

I rig the included plastic power bait on a jighead and fish it like you would a grub.  This way it is not a total waste.

i used the smaller version one day while fishing with my uncle in a private pond for bluegill. Thing was killing them when we tipped it with nightcrawlers. never tryed it for bass. Maybe for pike you could tip it with a fathead minnow or shiner?

I was fishing for largemouth at the time and the only way to keep the pike from biting off my bass baits was to use the blade dancer  ;D.

The Blade Dancer has caught a heck of lot more fishermen than fish. Add me to list. I bought several, couldn't catch a cold with "em.

Maybe you guys should mount a "blade dancer" on the wall vs. that big trophy bass! ;D

A littel board with plastic bait on it.....that would be funny! ;)

I was thinking about picking some up, but after reading these posts, I think that'll be a big fat no. I usually don't give many Berkley products a look. I just don't ever catch anything on their products. The power worm is about the only thing I have caught fish on.

I am on the list also.  Never caught anything with those blade dancer lures.

I don't like berkley or powerbait products at all.  I just can't catch a cold with their products.

Al Lindner endorses them because he gets paid to do so. Notice that his boat and clothing are covered by the same logos of the lures he endorses? Or that his show is sponsored by the same products he endorses? It's because he is sponsored by them.
