My first couple spinnerbaits and a fish
« on: 10/29/16 13:47 UTC »
First good fish I caught on one of the spinnerbaits I built.  1/2oz Double Colorado blade slow rolled over a hump with standing timber.

Bluegill patter with double gold willow blades

Shad pattern with gold top blade and silver second blade

Those are nice. That bluegill pattern is high intensity. Good catch too!

Thanks Mr. Tom.  It's a good looking bait, can't wait for the largemouth to start getting after the bream beds in the Spring time next year.  Hope you're starting to feel better by the way!

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I appreciate it. Catching a fish on a lure I made myself is the entire reason I started making my own baits. There truly is no better feeling.

Great baits and fish. And I'm totally jealous that you're in shorts and a tshirt. Fished today, maxed out at 54, cloudy, some sprinkles and mist with a slight but very cool breeze. No fish. Not sure I'll hit the water any more this year.
