Spring is your best shot of the year to catch a GIANT bass on a spinnerbait! Ponds, creeks, lakes, reservoirs, it doesn’t matter… bass are moving shallow, they’re getting in the cover, and they’re susceptible to the flash and movement of a well-placed spinnerbait.
If you could only own one spinnerbait in one color to have your best shot at catching fish on ANY lake, anywhere in the country, I would choose this one…
Revenge Deep Runner, Double Nickel Blades, Blue Shad Color, 1/2 oz Size: http://bit.ly/2oSfWd6
As you branch out and adapt to changing conditions you will need more baits in more colors and blade combinations. 1/2 ounce is by far the most universal spinnerbait. If there is ever a doubt, go 1/2 oz. Its heavy enough to pair with any trailer and light enough to still be fished shallow if speed is adjusted.
If you intend to focus shallow all the time 3/8 is your best size but be prepared to use a 3 1/2 to 4″ swimbait trailer instead of a 4-5″ swimbait trailer.
On the other hand if you intend to fish deep (Greater than 15 feet), or in current, or if you intent to burn the bait, 3/4 ounce is the best size for you. The beauty of 3/4 is that it can be burned mid range or slow rolled as deep as 30-40 feet.
The only other consideration is night fishing. We really didn’t talk about night fishing in this video but if you intend to fish primarily at night I recommend a larger hook (Revenge Heavy Duty, see below) and sizes 3/4 or 1 1/4 oz so that you are no struggling to maintain “feel” in the dark. The heavier blade gives great feedback on bottom and will keep you “connected” to your bait, despite not being able to see.
Here are the baits…

Recommend stocking sizes 4, 4.5, and 5 in Nickel, Gold, and White. Keep in mind size 5 is the largest so if you do not typically imitate bluegill or fish in extremely stained water, this will be your least used size.
