Confidence in Spinnerbaits and has this ever happened to you?

Recommended Posts

Went out yesterday on what started as a nice day. Was throwing a Bubblegum floating worm T-Rigged and ended up catching 1 fish on it. Then the wind started picking up and instead of leaving like I normally do,I put on a  Spinnerbait. Throughout the course of the day I caught 4 fish on the Spinnerbait,the largest being probably 2 pounds. I was pretty stoked as I never throw spinnerbaits.

Oh and has anyone ever had a random fish just jump in the boat?

I heard some commotion behind me in the baot and I took a look and this little fella jumped into my boat,he was gingerly recaptured and released.

Awesome.  My better spinnerbait days have been on cloudy, rainy, or windy days.  That's not to say I don't catch fish on spinnerbaits when it's sunny.  I do. I've just had better days overall when the light penetration wasn't as intense.

And no, I've never had a fish turn himself in!  How bizarre!  ;D

spinnerbaits have always been my go to baits.  Especially earthtones in semi clear water.  Chop on the water is always a bonus.  Not sure what to say not knowing what the conditions were.  Deep/shallow, water temp, etc.

BTW, I've never had a fish that desparate to be caught! ;D

Ya know I really HATE the wind,I mean hate it. People know I get UBER grouchy and irritable in the wind,but for some reason I decided not to let it get the best of me yeterday. Made it work to my advantage. I like throwing soft plastics,but its hard to control my 10' Jon Boat in the wind,I cant keep the presentaation the way i want in the wind. With Spinnerbaits,its a no brainer. The fish pictured in my Avatar was caught on the exact same bait I was throwing yesterday.

Its a Strike King Spin Dance Spinnerbait,which I inherited when my Uncle passed away. Its done some good. So far Ive caught 7 fish on it. Ive never NOT caught something on it when I throw it.Its the only one I use.

;D ;D ;D  I like that.

AA, I have the same feeling with my Northland Tackle 3/8oz golden shiner reed runner w/#5 colorado blade.  Favorites=confidence!

I have good luck with spinner baits. I like all black ones with a black over sized colorado blade. It slow rolls real nice or you can churn it along the surface and puts out lot of vibration. I have caught some of my bigger Lmb on them. The only thing I don't like is that the dinks wear them out and then you hook a HOG and he jumps once shaking his head and the wire breaks. This make me want to cry every time it happens! :'(

i used to love spinnerbaits, last couple of years they have forsaken me though. Big fish bait for me usually. And a big yes on the fish jumping in the boat. Not to me personally , but happened to these guys in a tournament i fished against. Smallmouth were chasing shad and one got a little overzealous and jumped in there boat.
