Spinnerbait rigging

Recommended Posts

Because I hate to have to grab my reading glasses every time I tie a knot a tend to use snaps, even on the R bend spinnerbaits - but I have a little trick that I use.

 

Whenever I buy a lure that has the plastic tubing protecting the hook I save that bit of tubing. Then when I fish the R bend spinnerbait I slice of a small section of the tubing and slide it over the bend so the bend is exposed, then clip my snap between the bend and the tubing. I'm at the point that I can do this by feel and don't need my glasses. And it still catches fish rigged this way.

I'm late to the party, but aquarium air line tubing cut to size works like a charm.  Cheap too. A dab of super glue will keep it in place.......

   I'm envious of you guys who don't use metal leaders. I fish 2 lakes that have musky (I caught one) and several rivers that have pike (I've caught many!). In those places, which are over 50% of my fishing, I ALWAYS use closed-eye spinnerbaits, and I ALWAYS use a leader with a snap. Does it wrap on the cast? Yeah, sometimes. Do I like that? No, I sure don't. But I don't like the tug/no lure/no fish pattern even more.

   If the twist is really bad, such as casting 45 degrees into the wind, I slide a 3/4 inch piece of 1/8 inch tubing over the

snap and twisted eye. That calms things down pretty well.    jj
