The spinnerbait may have fallen out of fashion in some parts of the bass fishing world, but it’s making a comeback with anglers in a big way. On overcast, windy days, it’s hard to beat a spinnerbait because of its versatility. It can also be “burned” across the shallow waters or probed through the deeper depths.
To maximize your catch-rate, start out by using 15- to 17-pound-test fluorocarbon. The heavier line will keep your spinnerbait running straight. Always add a trailer hook too so you don’t loose any fish—a free-hanging trailer hook works best. Willow leaf blades work well for medium to deep scenarios because willow leaf blades do not create much lift. Colorado blades should be used in the shallows or at night, as they create more lift. The Jackall Super Eruption Spinnerbait combines the best of both worlds with their blade design that incorporates both properties of the willow leaf and Colorado blades, allowing you to fish at the desired depths.
