any day is a good day to throw a blade. any time clouds block the sun is better even if it is 1 lone cloud throw the blade.

Nick, I haven't caught much on them lately either.

I have my best luck on a cloudy day with a slight wind.

LOL> I fish them on flat water as well as with a little chop. But the advice to fish the weeds and the weed lines is probably the best advice so far. Try changing up your retrieve also. Maybe try reeling a bit faster and then a bit slower. Play with it until you start to get hits. Also pay very close attention to the colors. and start with a single blade. Maybe a small willow blade.
Have fun.

Yeah, Nick, that might be a little big. Try a smaller bait with just two blades-I like a tandem setup for most conditions-a Colorado blade in front of a willow leaf blade. One of my favorite ways to fish it it to burn it back in where the blades make a bulging wake on the surface. In muddy water I go with a bait with a single Colorado blade. It puts out a lot more vibration that a tandem or double willow setup and makes it easier for the fish to find it with it's lateral line.

I would definately look for something a bit smaller. I am not sure I would even use that on the lake I fish. Lol.
Good Luck.

I never have any luck with spinner baits either. I've heard that single willow leaf is the best blade, though.

NICK,

Go to the "articles" section of this site. There are articles on just how to fish just about any bait, including spinnerbaits.
I don't know why all the "Newbies" don't use the "articles" section before they start asking "how to" questions. They would learn a lot from these articles, then they could ask very specific questions about a particular problem.

Definately some of the best advice I received from you when I was a newbie. It is a great source of info, and thanks to you, I've read every article at least once.

PS Pig-And-Jig is considered a crawdad bait by most folks

Spinner baits used to be a big time producer for me, but the past few years they have got me little to no fish at all. Maybe I am fishing the wrong kind.

I lose most of my fish on spinnerbaits. Just can't get the hook set right sometimes.

huh??
keep the line tight .
when they are heading for the surface put your rod below the surface of the water it tends to keep them from jumping.

welcome to the site any way..
