Spinnerbaits, and Bladed Jigs!
« on: February 21, 2021, 09:35:49 PM »
With all the talk with spinnerbaits, and Bladed Jigs, I figured I would throw my hat in the ring, and show you guys some of mine I just recently finished up. A buddy of mine had me make him a Spinnerbait like these pictured, last year, and he did very well on them, so another friend of mine asked for 6  (giggle) 3, 1/2oz, and 3, 3/8oz. I do really like the copper blades myself. I have caught a lot of fish with spinnerbaits pretty similar to those. One being my 2nd biggest of last year, being 5.4.

Then the picture of the bladed jigs, I am making those for a new tackle shop I am going to be selling baits in, in Warwick, called The Tackle Box. He actually reached out to me wanting more freshwater gear, which is really cool! I've been getting Buzzbaits, Spinnerbaits and Bladed jigs ready for him. Also some hand turned Jitterbug style baits. Little bigger then a 5/8 oz bug, but not as big as the musky bug. And I always end up throwing a couple to the side for myself. Sometimes, I do that too much!
I make baits, so when I fish, I am product testing! And when I am not using baits I make, I am researching.

Thank you guys! The copper has become my favorite blade color. Not really sure why, maybe its because its not used a ton so its something different, or its natural enough looking. Who cares though, as long as it preforms!

What are you guys running for wire thickness by chance? I go back and forth between .035, and .040. The thinner wire seems to bend a lot more, but "They Say" the thin wire catches more fish. Not sure if that is just a tall tale told by the old timers, or if it really makes a difference.

@metz12 Thinner wire bends more easily, but it also vibrates more. So it's a trade-off between performance and durability.
