Favorite Spinnerbait

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

X2 in double willow blade configuration. I started off using these and never stopped. They are harder to find around here now though.

I'm very intrigued after reading the TT review.

Why is it that no one mentions them much, let alone, choosing Secret Weapon Lures as their favorite?


I have one. The loose hanging wire gets fouled a lot and the eyes came off.

I actually had to cut my braid once it was so fouled up in the bait at night. Not worth the hassle especially in tournament situations.

I've fished them for years and love the ability to change them up on the water. I've had 2 older, lighter wire ones break on me, but only after 75-100 fish, which is surely enough for anyone... I really haven't had issues with the blade wires failing at all. Eyes coming off? Probably on a few of them. I owned way too many traditional spinnerbaits when I started with Secret Weapon, and I still own a ton, but when I need to really limit the number I carry and the space they take up, a 3600 of Sectet Weapons gets it done. And I'm far more likely to try out various blade combinations to get it really dialed in than when I have to retie, or worse, start swapping blades on regular spinnerbaits, if I even have the blades and parts to switch out with me. They do have a different vibration and fall than regular spinnerbaits, and I think that probably works both for and against them at various times, but overall I feel like their advantages outweigh their disadvantages.

Chode answer is pretty much yes...... The revenge spinnerbaits are no slouches either but all you have to do is take one look at the wire on the advantage and you'll see what I'm talking about. It looks like piano wire or something it's super thin and springy like.

More times than not I throw a Terminator Titanium spinnerbait in either a white+accent color or firetiger/chartreuse color. I will change blades depending on what speed/depth is working best. The blades that come on them are usually pretty nice.

However, if I had to pick my true favorite spinnerbait, it is this custom one I have made up:

This contraption was just something I toyed around with over a number of years until I got just the right combination of parts and low and behold it is fantastic. I have caught nice bass on it when no other spinnerbaits would get even a sniff. I have caught walleye on it. I have caught huge pike on it. It can be fished as slow or fast as you like. It even doubles as a buzz bait if you bring it to the surface.

It consists of a Terminator Hybrid Blade spinnerbait (good luck finding one now-a-days) that I have removed the blade and skirt from. I then put on a Lunker Lure Vibratron blade and a 5.5" Silver Swim Senko in natural shad that I nip about 1/2" off the front.

I have tried countless other swimbait trailers, and they will all catch fish, but the Swim Senko just seems to be way better, even when the tail gets bit off. It doesn't make any sense for since it is a pretty fast moving bait.

It is easily the best Pike bait I have ever used. You can catch them on the top or sub-surface. If one swings and misses while you are buzzing it just let it dive for 2-3 seconds then start going again and they will almost always take it underwater. I do not get the same results with a standard buzzbait.

I only have 2 left and don't know what I will do when I inevitably lose them.

I like the looks of that spinnerbait. Swimbaits as spinnerbait trailers do seem to garner more interest from walleyes and pike than those without.

I so have to agree, this is a fantastic Spinnerbait, and color. I also really like Daimiki Spinnerbaits.
