Spinnerbait blade configurations

   Everyone talks about blades. Blades are important, I'll give you that. But only part of the time.

   1) I occasionally get fish on a spinnerbait that are hooked in the lower jaw from the outside. They were hooked as they went after the blades, not the skirt.

   2) I also get fish hooked in the roof of the mouth. They were going after the skirt, not the blades.

 

   In scenario #1, the blades were generally flashy, including some 1/2 oz. Super Roostertails that I had. (They had silver plated blades.)

   In scenario #2, there was no pattern to the blades.

   If I could, I'd rather avoid scenario #1.

 

   I've also noticed some homemade spinnerbaits that had black chrome (black nickel) blades. What's up with that?            jj

For this reason alone, I ALWAYS use a trailer hook.  

 

Blurry pic, but this fish gets away without the trailer:
