That's what they make Ledgebuster for.

Yes, I have fished them as deep as 15 ft. I throw them out, let them hit bottom then use a slow retrieve. I'm usually targeting deep brush or grass on ledges. Great technique for active bass on windy days.

Use a 3/4 oz. or 1 oz. with a big thumping blade.  Let it go to the bottom, then fish it like a jig.  Pop it off the bottom, let the blade thump, give the reel a crank or two, then let the bait flutter back to the bottom.

I'll fish it that way as deep as I have to.

Bass will hit spinner bait near the surface, at mid-depth, or on the bottom regardless of bottom depth.

This is same way I fish blade baits, so it should work for the big spinners as well. However, that being said, I've thrown the 1 oz. Ledgebuster many times in past couple of years, fishing mainly for smallmouths. Have only taken a very few decent fish. Smallies do respond well to the blade baits (i.e.: Silver Buddies) however. I don't understand why they do the same with the big spinnerbaits? I keep trying though! :)

Absolutely!  Jig it, slow roll it, jerk it, yo-yo it..... Fish it just about any way you can think of.  For me, the spinnerbait is the most versitle lure in my box!..... Be ready for the strike when you are allowing the bait to sink to the bottom!

Cullin5 said it perfectly. There is no more bait more versitile than a spinnerbait.

Exactly!

We use them as deep as 25' around here.

Great question, I've been wondering myself.  I use a 3/8 oz and don't have the patience to let it drop very far.  I'll try some of the suggestions on this post.

I like to yo yo them around drop offs in 30+ ft of water in the mine pits! They are better in deep water imo!

You can burn them under the surface in 35' and have smallies come charging up for it around here.
