Spinner blades

6 posts in this topic

I am starting to tie up some for this upcoming season. What are everyone's favorites (sizes, shapes, colors)

Also do some spin better at slower speeds?

you can use any color on mille lacs as long as it's hammered metal!

My fav would be a small Colorado chart green. But as previously stated, a hammered copper blade works most of the time-

Colorado, Size 4 or 5, and try different colors. I like firetiger, but have used Chart green as well. I don't know if color matters as much as the blade type and the vibration. Sometimes I bend the tip of the blade just a bit to get it to spin just a bit different. You have to play with it a little bit.

All that have been mentioned work well but the hatchets are also worth giving a whirl.

Right on again!!!!! Stay with those colors and add red, and even glow, and Rainbow. It seems like mid-late June on the Mud -Pink works well grin.gif

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
