Hi

 

Im about to buy 2 o 3 max spinner bait targeting smallmouth, largemouth and white bass, but i never used a spinner so i don't know, considering tha i will only buy 3 max wich colors are the best to choose, i normally go fishing after 5 pm and sometimes i stay fishing till midnight.

 

By the way i fish in Amistad reservoir or Amistad Lake in Del Rio, Texas.

 

Thanks

I'm no expert, nor do I even have any confidence in spinnerbaits as I dont use them a whole lot.  That being said if I were to go buy three spinner baits, I'd buy one green pumpkin, one white/chartreuse, one black/blue or another green pumpkin with a different variation of color...maybe some orange in it.   As far as blades go, one will produce more vibration than the other.  I only own two spinner baits and they're both gold, one has two willow blades, the other has a willow blade and a smaller colorado blade. 

 

I'll be watching this thread though for more responses because this is one lure I really want to better incorporate this year.

I don't use spinnerbaits as often as I should, but when I do I usually throw it when white/chartreuse color combo works the best. I always have some sort of a white trailer and a trailer hook as well. 

 

Not much to go off of, but I hope it helps.

Spinnerbaits to me are a stained/dirty water only technique. With that being said I pretty much only throw white and chartreuse, blade combo depending on water clarity. The dirtier the water the more likely I will throw double Colorado blades opposed to willow leaf blades, as they produce more "thump". Best times to use a spinnerbait is overcast conditions with some wind. Target cover like laydowns, dock pilings, weed edges, rip rap banks, points. Adding a trailer hook with help with short strikes. As far as equipment goes I use a 7' Medium heavy/moderate fast action casting rod, a 6.4:1 gear ratio reel and 15lb fluorocarbon. 90% of the time I'm out I have a spinnerbait rod with me, they just flat out catch fish.

For White Bass I choose Strike King Rocket Shads . If you do go that route  wrap a little wire around the double hook because I've had two or three come off during the fight .

Or what I do is remove the double hook and put a Gamakatsu size 1 open eye siwash hook on and clamp it shut with pliers. I feel it works better than the stock double hook.

Stanley Vibra-Wedge

Designed to deliver maximum thump and vibration, the Stanley Vibra-Wedge Spinnerbait produces more water displacement than any other spinnerbait on the market.  Featuring two of Stanley’s most innovative designs - Vibrashaft wire and Wedge blades - the Wedge blades are specially designed and taper in thickness, allowing them to emit the thump of a Colorado-blade, as well as, the flash of a standard willow blade. 

 

For all around setup I prefer double gold willow leaf & skirts of white, chartreuse, or any combination there of!

I always have a spinnerbait tied on.  I typically use either a white/chartreuse or a black/blue with 1 willow and 1 Colorado blade.  The majority of my good fish this year have been on spinnerbaits.

Some good advice above.

 

Good rule of thumb would be:

Low Light Conditions/Stained Water: Darker colors and more vibration - Colorado Blade

High Light/Clear Water: Lighter more natural colors and less vibration - Willow Blade

Windy Conditions. Clear Water with a lot of chop: White Color/Double Willow Blades fished into the wind ;)

 

Never hurts to add a trailer or trailer hook or both

 

Good luck @grayfox0327, let us know how you make out. :)

3/8 double willow either War Eagle or Siebert Outdoors. White with accents is best color. Throw regardless of conditions, and Reel fast enough where blades are 1 to 5 inches beneath surface. Spinnerbait is my favorite bait.

I fish Amistad a lot too. It seems spinner baits are most effective in the spring. You can't go wrong with white/chartreuse.

I always throw out a plug for the good ol' H&H Spinner baits when there is a post about them.  They are VEEERRRRY cheap and they flat catch fish.  The best thing about them...especially when you are on a tight budget...is that you can throw them fearlessly without worrying about losing them.  Buy 2 or 3 of every color and style and you are still less than 30 bucks down.  Just remember to put the hooks on or your hookup rate will be..uh...less than stellar.  I wouldn't know, of course......a friend told me.  :rolleyes:

 

3/8 Double Colorado blade can be found at Academy for $1.49 or even cheaper on Ebay.  They are very old school and have been around forever...because they work.

when its dark i tie on a strike king tour grade night spinner bait and have gotten good results.

 

also those 1 dollar black colorado spinners  at walmart works great too. a bit small at 1/4 oz but its still castable in most situations and catch fish.
