  • Recommendations for Spinnerbaits

    Posted on March 15, 2011 by admin

    New or novice fishermen often ask about spinnerbaits and what are the proper times to use them.  The common wisdom is to use a spinnerbait during windy or inclement weather. However, as mentioned on our site,  spinnerbaits can actually be fished year- round and in any weather condition.

    The key to a spinnerbait is to make sure the bait stays in the strike zone. To accomplish this, once the bait is cast, the bait should be allowed to sink into the strike zone (depending on the depth of the water) and then retrieved. As the bait "rides" up in the water, stop the retrieval so that the bait can sink back into the strike zone.

    It's also important to periodically check the blades to ensure that they spin freely. If there is a "catch" or the blades do not spin freely, see if you can determine the reason for the catch and fix it.

    Spinnerbaits can be a tremendous weapon in your bass fishing tool box. Remember to retrieve, stop and allow the spinner to sink back into the strike zone, retrieve, etc. Follow these directions and you are sure to catch a lunker!

    Use spinnerbaits to get into the home of the lunker!

  • Should you use a weight when you wacky rig?

    Posted on March 9, 2011 by admin

    One of the most common questions that we are asked about wacky riggin' one of our trick worms is if a worm weight should be used. The short answer is...maybe.  A weightless rig  certainly drops slower than a weighted rig. Since the trick worm is slower to sink, the bait will potentially stay in the strike zone longer. This weightless rigging produced the world record spotted bass in California. The potential drawback is that due to the limited weight of the rig, casting (especially in higher wind conditions) can be challenging.  This can certainly be cured with using a worm weight. What's the drawbacks of using a weight? First, if the weight is not pegged (held stationary) the weight will slide up and down the line and not be of much help in casting. Also, with a weight, the trick worm will sink quicker and move through the strike zone that much quicker. With a pegged worm (like a screw-in weight), the problem with the weight sliding can be eliminated. However, the problem with the quick sinking can not be fully overcome (unless you use a weight that is not very heavy). In our opinion, the additional distance realized with the weight isn't worth the loss of additional time that the weightless trick worm will give you in the strike zone.

The launch is scheduled from the Palatka city dock at 7:30AM with weigh-in scheduled at 4PM. There was a lot of activity at the city dock when I was there yesterday. Everyone is excited and can't wait to get the tournament going!
