Hey ya’ll,

 

So I recently ordered a rather large order of spinnerbait making materials and am looking forward to it arriving. Fall, Winter, Spring is spinnerbait season for me so I stocked up. 
 

I am looking to tie my own rubber skirts on and include some accents in the skirt for a little added flash and color. Curious what material and color you like to accent your spinnerbaits with. I’ll be working with a white round rubber base and I did get some holographic Flashbou for some accent… not sure if that is the best material to use but it looked nice so I got various colors. Finally do you prefer to accent a specific side of the skirt I.e bottom, top, sides and will braided line be an effective thread? Thank you!

I don't think it's needs to be exact.

Just getting sort of in the ball park is usually good enough.

When you posted the photo of your champion spinnerbait I noticed immediately how much it resembled a perch.... probably about the right length too. That orange highlight on the head is awesome.

Maybe don't worry about my spinnerbait suggestion... i think you are pretty well dialed in

Pure white I would add like 3 or 4 strands to the sides or some black on the back? I  am not the expert on simple spinnerbait colors though? Kind of have this OCD thing going on with mine.

For LMB I have found the one color that seems to do better than all others is black.  Add a little blue for accent.

Accents and matching the hatch gives me more confidence.  Lures are the only thing I have ever done in my life that is artistic.

I like to put my accent on the sides i.e. lateral line. But really it depends what im going for. I do this more with hair jigs that skirted jigs. Almost any hair pattern i do has a couple of strands of crystal flash for a lateral line. I try and use flash colors that fit in the color scheme. On crawfish type patterns i usually go for some sort of gold or copper. Baitfish patterns, i go with silver or pearl. Both will get green on occasion. I also like to use red thread as i feel this gives the appearance of gills. Now whether or not the fish buy that is another story. 
like AJ said. Close is usually good enough.
