My not too secret SMB lure

Recommended Posts

Hey people

 

I have been using a small safety pin spinner for smallmouth for years with either a worm piece or small soft jerk bait on a 1/16 or 1/8oz jighead for years with great luck. My own Beetle Spin spinnerbait style. I like stickbait pieces and the smallest fluke with a size one blade. I caught lots of 2-4lb SMB and a bunch of LMB, Pike and panfish too. Anyone else like this style for Smallmouth?

I have been using those since i was a kid so 30+ years.  I don't throw them much anymore but my son does and catches fish for sure.

Me too, but for some reason I stopped years ago. I'm glad I found it again.

Would have a very similar action to a Beetle Spin, but you get to select your own colors.

Great. I like it. I use to fish the heck out of the beetle spins, Mr. T spins, and stuff like that. Great way to put ripped senkos to good use. I fish a larger type spinner bait for river smallies. But I know what you mean on some days you have to scale back size. Have fun with it.

Funny how when you look back at what you caught MANY bass on  30 or so years ago, and you now don't use any of it...???

That is so true.

this year i have gone back to my fishing roots, on some baits.

All of the old baits still catch fish.

Another old lure that still catches a ton of fish is the rigged worm with the white or orange spot,usually in purple.  Ike-con, Mann's, if I remember correctly.

Different plastic but same small spinner. I've found that when they won't bite big spinners, they love the little ones.

Try it with a Charlie Brewer Slider Grub.

Just the Beetle Spin when I fish the upper Historic James River for smallies.

How do you make these?

I bought a bunch of size one blade safety pin spinners and I add a regular ball-head jig in 1/16oz or 1/8oz sizes.

Whatever plastic bait you want. Or you can go out and buy some Beetlespins and call it a day.
