Mike D says:

add a trailer hook. You wont get short strikes

fuerst metternich says:

i see some arguments if it is weedless or not…if you want weedless, try a “snagless sally”, it is an inline spinner with a wire guard that will work anywhere…a good standby in any tackle box….
also you can in some instances slide a soft plastic lure over the hook of your spinnerbait(or trailer hook) texas rig style to make it more weedless, but the bar of the spinnerbait deflects quite a bit of underwater vegetation….and branches….

+Chad Vann best way to learn is to go and practice first by casting then when u get the hang of it go to a lake or the ocean and fish be careful reels are made for either salt or fresh water

I was about to make fun of this guy for his background music, but then I realized it was coming from another tab…

ajatkinson2004 says:

I can see them being “weedless”, but algae is a much different story. Algae will get on anything lol

fuerst metternich says:

if you use a trailer hook attached to the main hook(thru the hook eye, can be secured by sliding an aquarium rubber piece over the eye of the trailer hook)you can set the hook right away, so the bass don’t have time to drop the bait(remember to insert with the hook part up, like the main hook)…tight lines!

John M says:

i get weeds with it all the time with it too.

DwarfyHamster says:

Wait… I’m new to fishing and I thought spinner would spin a little bait (I have a spinner and it has a small flashy bait on the end) around your bait like the “fish” is getting annoyed and occupied so the bigger fish will be like “Omg free food!!! this will be a “snap” (Get it?)” But actually they just look like a small school of fish.
