I'm honestly shocked that anybody replied! It's an older technique that very few anglers know outside of pros.

We used to wake Shannon twin spins in the 50's before safety pin wire frame spinnerbaits baits existed.

I wake them quite a bit just to keep them from getting hung in grass or limbs . Blakemore made one  for waking I was fond of ,   the C.C. Spinner .It had an over-sized copper Colorado blade .

The simplest way of describing it is to get the blade(s) of your spinnerbait to create a v shaped wake as u retrieve it. It takes practice to find the right retrieve speed, but it can be lethal. I've found it works best when a bass won't commit to a buzz bait, but the spinnerbait is deeper yet creating a little commotion on the surface to draw a strike.

Probably all older fisherman have done this. Jimmy Houston became famous doing it

V waking a spinnerbait at night will get explosive strikes.

Isn’t that the same thing as just burning it below the surface?

Yeah.

 

I do it often, part of why I started making the big bladed spinnerbaits so I could have the baits I need to do it better.
