Yesterday I got inspiration to make one big spinnerbait, because I realized, that I do not have any for big predators. I have experience with small spinnerbaits in trout fishing and it has turned out to be very effective. Spinnerbait blades make a totally different rotation frequency as the same blade would make as part of an inline spinner. So, in my old lure part boxes I found all necessary components:
- Stiff non-corrosive wire,
- Spinner blade,
- Spinner body,
- Two split rings,
In five minutes I made a pretty nice spinnerbait.
After some hours I got even more inspiration. I divided the spinnerbait into all seven components, set up my video camera and started to record the process, how I made my spinnerbait. My aim was to practice video editing. Here is the result:
- Distance from the blade and the lure body should be big enough. During vibration the blade should not reach the lure body.
- The hook should not reach any blade connector parts- swivel and split ring.
When I browsed around the Internet to find some english terms for better explanation, I found this valuable site: http://www.fishingpatents.com/japan-spinner-bait-patents.shtml Maybe some patented ideas will help you to build a better spinnerbait!
