Do you love big bluegill?
somebody told me, that gold color y better than silver and is true, in beetle spin.
last winter I used them slowly retrieve in the river and they work god, for small bass and pan-fish.
I have tried them but without much success....
Don't know if it's just me but when I try a lure and don't have any luck... it tends to gather dust in my tackle box for the remainder of it's life.
The fish taught me something about working the Beetle Spin yesterday .A yellow Perch ,Bluegills and several Bass up to 13" wanted a moderately slow retrieve with stop and go interruptions ,three Crappie pecked , followed and finally were caught using a crawling speed with interruptions,and two White Perch wanted it quick and steady and hit it hard! A lift and drop through the column was not tested often enough but didn't produce when used.
Mixing three speeds caught 5 species!
The same grub tail has been on the 16th oz. spinner bait all year and is stil holding up . The BSpins are a great value! Other jigs and trailers get torn up easily and have to be replaced . The jig hook is bent to the side and will have to be replaced eventually but it is still hooking fish!
I was wading or fishing from shore midday.
Great method explanation, Patrick. And thanks for your explanation, John.
Maybe Im fishing them too fast, although they tend to hang in the weeds if I don't keep them moving along.
Does anyone switch out the blades, say, putting on a willow leaf?
Hey I ran into this on the internet looking for something else!
I have caught fish on the B-S, but I find they are best reserved for the warm months.
I have caught,
On the little safety spin spinner, so far.
