Which colorado blade for nite time
« on: 05/23/16 16:21 UTC »
Who makes a good #5 or #6 for night time spinnerbaits? Where is the best place to buy them?

Thanks

I have found that the 4.5 Black Nickle from Barlows are perfect for 1/2 to 3/4 ounce night spinnerbaits.  I do a lot of night fishing and these have been the best blades for me.  If you are in a pinch, paint a blade with CS "Smoke" powder paint.  They work good too. 

Also, if you are ordering from Barlows, you may want to get some of their black/red Starflash skirts for night baits.  Those or traditional black bucktail have been my best for night baits. 

Use a good ball bearing swivel.

Good luck.

  The best blades on the market I think are Hildebrandt. Not cheap at all. For night time fishing I like a #5 gold colorado on a 1/2 oz. all black bait.
