Fishing Tips

  • Spinners baits are excellent for bass fishing.
  • Spinners come in one and two-blade styles.
  • Fish single blades in deeper water and tandem blades in shallow water.
  • In dingy, murky water, use Colorado blades for more vibration in the water.
  • In lightly stained to clear water, use willow leaf blades for more reflection.
  • If the fish are not biting, try slowing your retrieve.
