Adding Bigger Trailers to Spinnerbaits


Adding trailers to spinnerbaits is a great way to give the lure a bigger profile which helps to attract larger fish.  Whether you use a trailer hook to rig the soft plastic like you see to the left or you just rig the trailer on the regular spinnerbait hook, this technique works well.  Grubs and swimbaits in the 5 to 6 inch range will work well on spinnerbaits in the 1/2 to 1 ounce size range.  Fish these baits slow and steady around cover and you will catch some nice pike.
