WalMart $1 Spinnerbaits - Anybody Use 'Em?

Recommended Posts

I got a couple with a few buzz baits and caught a few 5 pound large mouths.

Heck yea I use them. If you fish around rocks, trees, bridge supports or any object and you are fishing from shore those cheapo spinner baits are the way to go. I save my money for the baits I'm fairly certain I'm not gonna lose on the first cast.

Once and a while I will buy a few just to have some in my arsenal. I've never had luck at being able to use them over and over because the skirt will never stay on. Never taken the time to modify them since I can buy better ones for a few extra dollars. However I don't think its a bad idea to have one or two just in case...

No , just because of the swivels . Those cheap swivels wont allow the blade to turn when they are dropping .  Something I do a lot . Otherwise they work just like every other spinnerbait .

Big BIG fan of the ol' H&H's.  Have several of every color and style.  Caught a TON of nice bass on them and have never....NOT ONCE EVER...put the hook on correctly the first time.

yes i do and ive switched out the skirts and replaced them with strike kings skirt that i got from the tw black friday sale.

 

it looks like a decent looking spinner bait that cost less than $2.50  if you include a trailer hook.

Yeah, in a pinch, but you can pick up better "cheap" spinnerbaits for like $1.50-$3.00. They all catch fish. The wire on the Wally spinnerbait will fatigue quickly when bent and straightened, and they are light for their size, but what do you want for a buck. I like the Cabela's cheapies better for $1.50, and have a couple of hundred "good" spinnerbaits I've picked up along the way for less than $2 each. I usually wire the skirt and mod the blades, so I'm really looking for the weight and head shape, not color or blade configuration. I really dig fishing spinnerbaits.

Yes, even though I make 95% of my spinnerbaits I still use these. Days when they are hitting any spinnerbait I use these and same my good baits. I just wire or zip tie down the skirt and call it a day.

No because I’d rather pay a little more and get a spinnerbait with a better hook on it.
