Spinnerbaits are one of the preferred search baits for bass fishermen. They catch a variety of different fish, but most anglers target bass or northern pike with them. The shaft of a spinnerbait allows the bait to work through cover such as lily pads, wood and even some types of weeds. Any time you can get a spinnerbait into some cover, you have a great chance of catching a fish. Spinnerbaits are also very easy to use. Most of the time, a simple cast and slow steady retrieve will do the trick.
Rod, Reel & Line
Spinnerbaits are usually fished with a baitcaster with heavier line and a heavier rod. 14 to 30 pound test line is the norm, although, you may go lighter or heavier depending on the situation.
