Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResource.com, and welcome to another addition of Hank Parker's Fishin' Tips. This week's question, it comes from Kevin from Boise, Idaho, and he says, "Hank, I noticed you use a lot of willow-bladed spinner baits with gold blades. Why gold?"
Hank: Well I like gold. Sometimes they're a little bit more flashy than nickel. I use nickel a lot in real clear water, but if that water is off-colored, I'm kinda matching the water a little bit, I like those gold blades.
So I use Indiana blades, I use Colorado blades, and I use willow leafs as well. And I always, you know, Indiana blade is kind of a compromise that I found to be really favorable for me. So I probably throw more Indiana blades than I do anything else. It's kind of a cross between a willow and a Colorado. Puts off good vibration, good flair, and I think that gold just adds to that flash in that off-colored water, and I like it. It's been very effective for me.
