I recently was given an old tacklebox with a few baits left inside. There were 4 of the old Shannon twinspin baits. I used to have some years ago, but havnt fished this style spinner in years. As I remember, I caught a few fish on them years ago. This was also a favorite bait of Harold Ensley, a famous Missouri fisherman, who caught lots of Ozarks area bass in the 60s and 70s on these spinners. I met him years ago at a sportshow in KC, and he told me a black twinspin with a pork eel trailer was a favorite of his. Is anyone fishing this style spinner? If so, how are you fishing them? Colors ? Trailers? I'm going to clean these up and give them a shot again.

My brother and I both had one of the Shannon Twin Spins. He did catch a few with his. I never caught one on mine. I finally took it out of my tackle box. We both had them with a yellowish colored skirts on them. I may still have mine somewhere in an old tackle box. Good luck with yours if you use them.

I make twin spins but not the Shannon design. Twin spins are a good vertical helicopter fall and fished slower then today's single or tandem spinner bait. Don't fish them fast like a spinnerbait, slow down.
