Well, they work :) caught a few more bass plus several big white bass on it Friday. 

 

All those pretty colors to choose from, but they bite the white. Sometimes I think fish don't understand how to play this game. 😄

It's a special white though, old school rubber that really flows nice. Plus those copper blades they never see. Obviously it looked good to them the way they were eating it.

A white spinnerbait is all I can get bit on lately. If I try to spice it up with different colors, they aren't interested. Copper looks great in the water I fish, but I never have any luck with it. I've never tried any copper blades though. All those you made look great.

 

I was just joking though. One time I was standing in a bait store looking at the choices, and this other shopper asked me if I knew why they made all those different colors, real serious like he was going to let me in on a big secret. He said, "So fishermen will buy them."

Mmm, those hammered colorado blades. I could use a few of those for the rivers downtown.

Hard to find a bait with them anymore, and I love them in dirty water like I fish a lot.

 

Ah, now here's a great argument for making my own spinnerbaits...single-spin colorados in general(other than dark-colored night-fishing baits), and especially hammered blades are increasingly hard to find. Love the copper too.  And they would be great in my own murky local river, which I don't fish often enough.

In the late 70's   I got my first baitcasting combo , it was a booger to cast . It was a red Ambassaduer 5000 with higher speed gears installed and 5.5' fiberglass Lews speed Stick . Looking through Bass Pro Shop catalog I found the Blakemore C.C.  spinner .  It was a black 1/2 ounce spinnerbait equipped with a number 7 "I believe" cupped , hammered ,  copper , Colorado blade . I bought a couple just so I could have something easy to cast at next club tourney . I won that event with three bass weighing 13 lbs . That was my go to spinnerbait for a few years after that. Roland Martin won a couple of events on big bladed baits and then everybody started throwing them . Kind of ruined it and now I mainly throw them in dingy spring time water .

Did one up with some big willowleafs. This is a good one in for the rivers when they're eating big gizzard shad for some reason.

No photo description available.

I was getting some jigs ready too.

Im interested in getting into spinnerbait making. Did u use wireforms or roll your own. Also, do you use an powderpaint air brush to paint them or do u just tap the paint on. Thats my biggest hold up right now because i only have a fluid bed.

I'm using wire forms, both open and closed eye. 

 

I'm using both a powder paint gun and tapping the paint on, mostly the latter. 

 

I wouldn't want to make a lot of them but for the specific ones I want they're working very well and I'm very happy with my decision to make them.
