Very cool. Looks like that bass had no problem with your spinner/spoon set-up. Did you try the super glue idea? Bob

Thanks Bob that tip sounds like it'll work.Thanks for your in put!

John, As far as your spinner blade seperating from your spoon, you can try putting 2 or 3 colored beads ahead of the clevis and blade. Then take a round toothpick and a micro amount of superglue, place the dab on the bead furthers away from your blade and let it set up. It will hold your bead in place and not affect anything else. Just be very sparing with that stuff. You'll get the hang of it in very short order. It should work fine for you. Bob

My spinner /spoon worked well today ,caught alot of BG/Bass and White Perch...but a drawback is the spinner seperates from the spoon while casting (maybe if it was mounted on a shafted spoon it would be better.I'm thinking the added spinner/Spoon combo is better for trolling and drifting spoons . I'll continue to use it under muddy or badly off colored rainy water though as I think it is still a trigger to some degree. Fish feel a spinner I think better than a spoon and I'm using it more for vibration than flash...Its a tiny spinner and the spoon has the flash and perhaps a little more flash and bigger profile from the added spinner works better under the conditions of cloudy visibility for the fish.

The spinner/spoon combo is easy to assemble but read through my discussions on "Spoon Chuckers "for its drawbacks as well as pluses...I had some old Eagle claw snelled spinner rigs designed for small trout/Panfish and the hooks rusted..so I cutoff the spinners/clevis's and beads and utilized them this way.

Bob, as to your question about hooks, the single hook that comes with the Swedish pimple is by far the best single hook...it has a larger eye to better accomodate the split ring....the Mustad Oshaugnessy hook is only to be used with spoons like the Acme Kastmaster, as they do not include a single hook with their product......Snaps are snaps, just make sure it's a cross lock snap and not a safety pin snap.

John, I re-posted your pic for a better view....this page will stretch pics that are wider than 600 pixels.

First time using the spinner/spoon/ worm rig.... a rainy muddy water concept...this fish and others were caught casting to a 3-4ft. flat adjacent to a dropoff of perhaps 6-10 ft or more shortly before a storm and little cold front...need to test this drifting and trolling
