Do you mean the blade baits used for Walleye?

Or spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, Rooster Tails, etc. for bass????

Please clarify.

Thanks.  :)

Being from Ohio also jig thrower,blade baits are very effective for bass up around here.I have used them for 20 years in the 40 to 50s degree temperatures.Have seen them win early spring and late fall tournaments. The most productive one I use is called a Vibee produced in Ohio.Most gander mountains in the area have them.bps have a few that are comparable,Sonar and their own versions.If just starting to use,my recommendations would be 1\4 and 3\8 oz depending on wind.Silver on sunny,white on cloudy,and sometimes firetiger on muddy.Jig this bait where you might find the first or last weeds of the season.also on drops and humps.When fishing I use 10lb floro with a snap is critical.cast the bait letting it sink on semi slack line ,as if a worm ,95% of the bites will come on the fall.Lift rod from 10 to 12 o clock let fall again,do not allow the rod to just drop back to 10 abruptly.drop rod with the feel of the bait! Good luck!! This bait has been a go to for me when I couldn't get a bite on anything else.Is also a productive bait on Erie in the larger sizes!

The only blade bait I use is the Silver Buddy. I vertical jig it and bottom bounce it after a long cast. It is one of the most productive cold water baits. The fish prefer the gold color in 1/4 oz. and 1/2 oz.
