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.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
