How fast do you guys that use spinners spin them? I have never used one, and not sure if you would make it just barely move, or let it spin and flash kinda fast.

I think it depends on what you are spinning.

Watch the string and you will know if it is spinning too fast.

Get it tweaked in so the object you are spinning spins but does not twist the line. That will be the fastest you can spin that object.

A golf ball with very little drag will be able to be spun faster than a large 6 or 9 inch spoon with much more drag.

Don't mind BNS's comments.

Until Elwood and I make a HB Spinner big enough to spin his Fish toys ice saw, he will never be sold on the spinner idea. smile

Maybe take the head of an electric auger to spin an ice saw? You might need to ad a rehostat (sp?) to control the rate of spin.

Easy now... with posts like that you might get an invitation to join the redneck engineering team. smile

Yea buddy you know what I'm talkin bout...

I start out at a speed that just turns the spoon and work my way up from there. I like a good slow roll of the spoon then once in a while I will shut off the spinner and let the line twist out and jig it agressively then back to a slow roll.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.
    • Michael Endres
      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers  
    • Michael Endres
      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
