Anyone fish with Spinnerbaits? If so you might find these interesting, especially when the fish want something different…or are particularly finicky that day.  Here’s a few of my custom “Micro” Spinnerbaits I reach for when I want to add some flash and vibration to my soft plastics.  The design makes it easy to change hook sizes appropriate for the bait size selected, or to attach a weighted jig head.   Because these fine-wire spinnerbaits are very light in weight they provide a lot of vibration for their size.  When rigged without any weight attached, a slow fall through the water column is possible which can be deadly.

I just use a Beetle Spin. They catch everything except catfish.

Yep...Beetle Spins are a good alternative if you don't make your own.  I like the ability however to exchange blades quickly if needed and to use ball bearing swivels.

I've used inline spinners like the Panther Martin for trout. They work good.

A Mepps spinner size #0 has been responsible for about 2/3 of the wild trout that I've caught.

 Those are good too, but for some reason, the Arkansas River trout love the PM spinners.

i find very small wiggly lures of various shapes at wall mart. about this time of the year i go to cottonwood lake east of me 50 miles. one lake drains to another through a big cement pipe. the fast water on the side that gets the water is full of crappies and they love very small wiggly lures. no matter what they look like. going to try a small floating frog also and going to try that for spring trout on a few ponds at historic fort robinson. ft. robinson has several ponds and a small lake. they stock well with trout and i also try fishing them in the spring. followed the clear water stream once on ft robinson. several mile back it came gushing out of the bottom of a cliff as a hard pushing spring. cant get cleaner water than that. we have good tasting water in this area.
