Spinners: Blades-n-Beads?

Recommended Posts

wazz

Hey everbody good to see people learning new things on the pond. Pretty nice when the fishing is so good, builds a little confidence to try something different. How about some of your favorite beads and blades on your spinner rigs.
One of my favorites is 6' with a quick change clevise, I start with a red hatchet blade. 2 silver beads in front and 6 chartreuse behind. I have to admit I probably switch the blade around a little to much, but thats just the way I am....

Give the infiltrater spinners a try. They work great and the best part about them is one person can use a lindy and the other can use one of these spinners because they work good at low speeds. Then switch accordingly. I use 4 red beads and a chartuce/ silver blade most often. They all catch fish this year.
I think even a turd used as bait will catch wallys out there this year.

We caught more fish this weekend with no spinner on our lindy rig. We had a 6ft. leader with 1 red bead and plain hook. It outfished the standard spinner blade combo by far. We only caught 2 fish with the blade and we had 30 fish Saturday. We left the lake at 3:30 pm because it was so hot. Sloppy Joes and 7 mile were the 2 spots.

I was up this weekend and it seems as though it did not matter on any specific color, type of blade, but the length of the spinner rigg was the key. 6'snells 6' snells
Friday we got out at 6pm, fished till 10.
Caught about 20. Only 2 in ther slot.
Most were comming out of the deep water off the flats, (typically on the down current/drift side of the flat.)
Saturday 30 eyes.
7 mile was hot, Shermans was hot, Batton, and curley,s.
Caught 4 27"
Caught 1 28+ deep water!

My ratio seems to be out of what you catch only 15% will be in the slot!
Have fun fishing, bring lots of crawlers and two nets for three people. Mille lacs is on fire

Another question to add to the mix: I'm a "self-taught" Lindy rigger (for better or for worse!) and have always done 2 hooks for crawler rigs and have gone back and forth with 1 or 2 hooks on leech rigs. Do you guys have better luck with 1 or 2 hook Lindys with leeches? Seems my trailer hook tangles easier on leeches than crawlers and I rarely hook 'eyes on the trailer hook with leeches (maybe 10%), which is just opposite of my crawler rigs - probably hook 60-70% of my 'eyes on trailer hook with crawlers.

Tight lines,
Blaze

* FYI - favorite spinner on ML is small hammered gold with a few red beads between spinner and hook - and yes, 6'-8' snells

The Infiltrators are hot, My favorite combo is the hammered silver with green beads. This resembles the color and flash of a Lake Mille Lacs spottail shiner.

Blaze,
I tried using a stinger hook on my leech rig for the first time earlier this season. I did manage to catch more of those short biters, but I didn't like using it at all. I spent 90% of my time untwisting the leech. Feeding line to the fish is a whole lot easier. Not to metion the presentation is much more realistic.

Infiltrator Spinner Rigs do have the hammered gold spinners in the kit.

These babies are the real deal. Very versatile going slow or fast.

You'll want to use them in slow presentations as well as fast reaction type bite presentations.

97% of users have claimed dramatic improvements in their catch rates using them versus other spinners.

It's the time of year you can use the panfish spinners to go after suspended crappies in main lake basin areas.

You can see the full line-up at:

You will definitely appreciate these spinners.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you  
    • leech~~
      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.
    • papadarv
      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
