I want to tie my own spinners and crawler harnesses.

any suggestions on a line to use? and has anybody used the quick-change clevis' that I have seen?

or am I just better off buying the pre-tied rigs?

Trilene XT, Maxima and Segar Fluorocarbon are all good. I usually use 15# test. The quick change clevis are an advantage while fishing. I find myself changing sizes and colors of blades more often with them.

Your much better tieing your own spinner rigs. Cheaper in the long run and you get exactly what ya want. I tie my rigs with 10 or 12# Trilene XT. Once you get the hang of the snell knots you can make them in a few minutes.

Ya the initial investment in all the components may look pricey but you will save in the long run. I also tie all my spinners with the quick exchange clevises. They are better on your lines and you can change out colors and sizes without ever cutting anything.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
