I usually use white, and chartreuse/white. That being said, I just bought a spinnerbait in bluegill color that I am dying to get wet.

I'm starting off with the War Eagle gold shiner, which is gold tandem willow leaf. Since I bought this bait, it has replaced most of my SB's. I use it almost year-round, changing to a black/blue with Colorado blade in the winter or really unclear water. I think most fish I've caught on a SB would have bitten no matter the skirt color because it's such a reaction type bait. They don't know why they bit it. Instinct made them do it.

The majority of the time I'm using white with various accent colors year round. I little while back I had a pattern figured out at a certain lake that utilized a white bait with purple accent strands with a white and purple boot tail that just flat out slayed em' for an entire season, but particularly in spring time.

In the springtime before herbaceous cover makes it too difficult to fish cleanly, an inline spinner such as a Mepps will catch a lot of bass.

These are three proven spring producers .

 

The red blade use to be a local favorite . Not many people    throw it anymore .

 

The middle Strike King Spin Dance is my all time favorite spring spinnerbait .

 

The short arm has a weedguard . I like to fish pockets off the main channel and drop it in any cover available .

I prefer Indiana blades but in a pinch Colorado blades will do too. It’s all about that thump.

I experiment with blade styles/ combinations starting with a single Colorado with the first substantial warming trend. For skirts, um.....I don’t use them.

My spinner-bait technique is as follows... and I think I am a pretty good spinner-bait fisherman.. 

 

1) I never throw a spinnerbait without a trailer. I use either a matching swimbait trailer or twin grub tail..

 

2) Clear Water = White with Silver Willow Blades or Glimmering Blue with Silver Blades. Both will have a matching trailer. 

 

3) Murky/Stained Water = Chartreuse or Chartreuse/White with gold Willow Blades, matching trailer

 

4) Muddy Water with Low Visability = Black or Chartreuse with Gold Colorado Blades, matching trailer

 

 

90% of the time I do not burn it. I slow roll it or run it just quick enough to keep it clipping the top of a submerged grass bed. 

 

 

 

I throw them all times of the year as long as water is 55 degrees or warmer and at all parts of the day. Some of my biggest bass with come on a spinner-bait. It is one of my best confidence lures. Sometimes I catch bass on them when I cannot catch them on any other lure.
