The attributes of a spinnerbait is the flash and vibration it produces. I tend to go thru a process of elimination: I generally start off with a blade that would produce the most flash and if the fish are bumping it with no hook ups, then I mute it down with a less flashy painted or gold blade. Same with vibration, I start with more and mute it down. Then I switch out blade sizes and shapes until I get a combination that works.

When all the combinations I go thru are exhausted, then I'll switch to a slower presentation.

What he said is perfect. Start off at the top and work to the bottom. Also though, work around with blade combinations. A colorado blade in your situation sounds to me should be one of your top choices. The colorado blade is gonna give you alot of vibration. I would start off with a single big silver colorado blade if the water is clear as day especially with that sun starting to reflect off the water in the early morning. If the water is a little stained or if it is cloudy, switch to a big gold colorado blade. But, in the case that wind starts picking up, go to any combination of a willow leaf but stick to the Silver during bright sunny days in clear water; or a Gold in stained water or a Gold in clear water on a cloudy day.

I'm in love with Northstar's Hidden Weight baits. I love burning a 3/4 ounce Willow/willow, bulging it just under the surface in the morning. That said, in clear water, I'll back off to a 1/2 ounce Willow/willow with chartreuse and white painted blades. (Body being Chartreuse and white...) One of the lakes that we fish a lot has gin clear water and any flash from blades is off-putting to the fish. If fish are really wanting a "thump" I'll switch to a Stanley Wedge. It's got more vibration than a Colorado blade and pulls through the water easier.

If your water has bait fish like shad then there really is no 'bad' time to toss the old spinnerbait. I throw them at night with totally calm water! The key is that the bass have to be in a 'chasing mood'. An added advantage of throwing spinnerbaits any time is that they tend to draw bigger bites. It is one of my best big fish baits and I almost always have one tied on no matter what the conditions.
