Unless your fishing at night there ain't but three color's for a spinner bait. White, Chartreuse and White and Chartreuse. Yes there are other colors but they don't account for much.  Popcorn in hand let her fly.

I use spinnerbaits all the time, has anyone tried a Limber-Blade. It has a flexible blade arm. I will try to upload a picture of one.

You're right about the others though. They're all I used for 15 years or so. Now the gold is almost always tied on, even when I fish a new place.

A big part of many peoples  fishing is simply making their  way down a bank and picking apart cover . Spinnerbaits come through brush extremely well and have a very high hook-up percentage . What is not to like ?

The part I don't like is that I never get a bite........ .

Check out Mike's Cosmic Spinnerbaits.  High quality like the old WE's and you can get wire tied skirts.

Occasionally, spinnerbaits are the very best option. Somebody taught me years back and I still utilize this tip. In the spring, summer, and early fall (never tried it in the winter) after the aggressive morning bite, if the winds are above 10 mph, a spinnerbait fished in stained water near weeds in water 3-10 ft. (generally) is often the bait that saves the day. Wind, stained water, and spinnerbaits can be magic. For all the KVD fanboys, KVD has echoed this fact too. I beat my buddy (a very good fisherman) 7 keepers to 1 using this tactic fishing in 20 mph winds on a very slow day. The fish just would not agree to anything else. That day I used a 1/2 oz Booyah with double colorado blades in Chartreuse. I like War Eagles and Strike KIngs too.

Hey, bro! I can remember a time when I felt that way too. Spinnerbaits were only in my boxes because I got them on clearance or as gifts. For ten years or so, I think I only caught a couple of dinks on them. I hated and neglected them. Once I fished them in the right conditions (I think got desperate that first successful day) and then had a couple of good days with them, my confidence in them soared. I NEVER fish them now unless there is a very good wind. When boat control gets difficult, spinnerbaits often become gold! Try them again in wind, near weeds or wood, and in stained water. I think your opinion will change.

Spinnerbaits have been around along time.

Old Shannon Twin Spins? I might also add: in the summer very early morning when the topwater bite is often good, spinnerbaits will often catch fish when they won't hit on the surface, many times better than topwaters. Also, a 1/2oz single spin( large colorado blade) in black or purple with a chunk trailer is one of the best night baits ever.Another option: try a fast retrieve that just slightly bulges the surface. They can cover most of the water column, top to bottom. Classic baits that will never go out of style

Don't go on the water without one tied on. I liked them so much, bought molds and started building them 20+ yrs ago.

Primary colors white, white/chart, fire tiger/bream, sometimes a black/purple. It was said in an earlier reply, they are a great search bait. I probably use a 1/2oz more than any other size, but will change sizes in a heartbeat, (match the hatch) Most of the time they have at least one gold blade and it's usually a willow. Been blessed to catch two double digits, one came on a spinnerbait I made.

Got the details of the lake I’ll be fishing a tournament on next weekend and immediately thought about slow rolling a spinnerbait deep.

Hmmm.  I don't see many on the water throwing them.  I have one tied on full time.  Sometimes more than one rigged up.  Any stores around me have at least one side of the aisle with inventory, so they must be popular.  It's proven fish catcher.

 

Agreed....  I always have one tied on but I don't tend to use them that often and when I have been out on a lake watching what other guys are fishing, I don't see that many spinner baits anymore. 
 

I am not sure why but it seems that there are some many choices in confidence baits that the spinnerbait has fallen to the bottom.  It still catches fish though.
