fishing tips and tricks
 May 1, 2004; 02:24AM - In-Depth Spinnerbaiting
 Category:  Fishing tips and tricks
 Author Name:  Steven Narup
In-Depth Spinnerbaiting Tip&Trick Description 1: When most people are asked, what is a spinnerbait? They will more then likely reply with this, it has a hook with a wire attached to it, with a lead head and a silicone skirt, with either one or two blades. The majority of the time they will automatically describe the clothes pin spinnerbait. Well in essence, there is much more to that. There is more then just that style of spinnerbait, this is what most people do not understand. Two other spinnerbait types are just as productive when presented in the right situation. These two baits are the tail-spinner and the in-line spinner. These baits are slowly catching on to the clothespin spinnerbait.

There are quite a few styles of spinnerbaits, including tail spinners, in-line spinners, and clothespin style spinnerbaits. Each style has there own time and place. The most widely used of these spinnerbait choices, is the clothes pin style.

Tail spinners can be a great choice when fishing for smallmouth bass and or finicky largemouth due to the baits compact size.

In-line Spinners became obsolete for many years by most bass anglers. Until now, they are slowly catching on to both Smallmouth and Largemouth anglers.

In-line spinners are a great bait when the fish are active but they can also be great when presented it other situations. Most people use in-line spinners when the fish are in a negative feeding mood, due to the baits smaller more compact size. There is one problem with in-line spinners, which keep the majority of people away from them, the fact that they will give you line twist. To help with this scenario try a high quality stainless steel ball bearing, this will cut back on the line twist. A ball bearing helps prevent line twist like so, when the bait starts to spin and twist in the water column the line will most likely twist without a ball bearing. However, if you have a ball bearing connecting the mainline to the leader, when the bait twists the ball bearing spins the line back so that the line will not twist as easily. If by any chance you do have line twist, let out a couple hundred feet of line into the water and turn your trolling motor on, this will get most of the twist out of your line. Another trick is the tie your line to a heavy object and stretch the line out by tightening your drag and pulling the line.


The clothespin style spinnerbait comes in many different combinations including blade size and style and different size heads. There are Steel and Titanium wires. The Titanium version is nearly indestructible, and needs little or no tuning at all. Titanium also lets off quite a bit more vibration then steel. The heads on clothespin spinnerbaits are starting to be produced with different materials as well, such as Lead, and Tungsten. Spinnerbait anglers are slowly starting to make the switch to Tungsten spinnerbaits, due to the fact the head is almost 3/4 the size of lead, making the bait work through cover almost effortlessly.


In general, spinnerbaits are a very versatile lure, which is one main reason why most bass anglers use them. Bass anglers have been using them for many years now and they still produce fish as if they came out yesterday, you just have to know the different ways to fish the bait.

Tail spinners can be great finesse baits and they can be fished shallow or deep, because the body of the bait is lead, with a little blade on the back. The majority of tail spinners come with a single treble hook, making them not as easy as the clothespin style spinnerbait when trying to fish through thick cover. To work the tail-spinner you can just reel the bait back to the boat, by doing this you will reduce the odds of catching more fish, but it does work. Instead, you should give the bait a little action. You can yo-yo the bait by letting the bait fall to the bottom, then pick your rod tip up to about a 10 oclock position, just keep repeating this procedure unless you are not producing. On the other hand, you can do a combination of things, to give the fish something different to look at. You can yo-yo the bait during part of the cast, then reel, or twitch it back to the boat. One last way to fish this bait would be to vertical jig it, in deep, clear, cold water. This technique will work in different conditions, but works best in deep, clear, cold water. When you vertical jig a tail spinner you cast the bait out a few feet and let the bait fall vertically, on a semi-slack line then you slowly lift your rod tip and shake the bait, let the bait fall and keep repeating this process. I like to use baitcasting gear when fishing tail spinners, but there are times when you need to fish lighter baits and that is when spinning gear comes into play. I mainly fish Pflueger rods and reels. The rods are very nice they come with premium Fuji guides and a Fuji reel seat, making the rod one nice package. I really like the Trion Baitcasting reel because they come with five ball bearings, one roller bearing and a smooth multi-disc main gear applied star drag system, making this a great reel for mostly any type of fishing. The reel is great if you want to fish a lighter line, because you can set your drag and the drag is so smooth that when a fish pulls there will not be as much stress on the line itself.


In-line spinners have been around for over fifty years, and they are still going strong, Mepps has been in the in-line spinner business for a while now, and they still sell great. Most anglers do not use in-line spinners while fishing for bass instead they are using bigger in-line spinners fishing for pike or musky. However, I know they are missing a lure that can catch bass like it can pike and musky. I have had great success fishing in-line spinners in creek openings, where the creek empties into the main river, fishing for smallmouth bass. In-line spinners can be worked shallow or deep, they come with or without tails, painted blades or non-painted blades. When you work an in-line spinner, the best possible way to fish these is to reel them in. If you try to jerk the bait, you will lose a lot of action, because in-line spinners are not made for jerking. In-line spinners let off a lot of flash, and maximum flash happens when you just reel it in. When I fish in-line spinners I like to use spinning gear preferably the Pflueger Trion spinning rod in a 6 foot medium action, with a Pflueger Trion spinning reel, because they come in a 6:3:1 gear ratio which will allow you to speed up the bait without getting as tired out. They are very smooth and cast light baits a mile.

Clothespin spinnerbaits are one of your more versatile baits in the spinnerbait family. You can work them quite a few different ways, and give the bait action if you desire. When I work a safety pin spinnerbait, I really like to use a Pflueger Trion Baitcasting rod, anywhere from 6-foot medium to a 7-foot medium heavy action. The 6-foot rod will help you when you want to make accurate casts, and the 7-foot rod will help when you want to get distance with your bait. With the Trion rods, they are extra sensitive high modulus graphite, which will give you the ability to feel the blades turn on your bait. I will throw the bait on 15-20 pound test Berkley Trilene XL. When you work a safety pin spinnerbait, you can just reel it in, but again you are going to be missing some fish. When I fish a safety pin style spinnerbait, I sometimes jerk the bait, doing this gives the bait sort of an injured baitfish presentation. You can also let the bait flutter down, then you pick up your rod tip, and repeat, doing this gives the bait a yo-yo type effect. If I am going to be fishing a spinnerbait in cold water, I will look for anything that lets off heat because this will warm up the water just a little bit, fish do feel the difference, and I will fish the bait around that. If the fish are just coming up and nipping at the bait, you may want to add a trailer hook for extra insurance. I will usually throw a spinnerbait with a trailer hook in any tournament situation. If the fish are coming up and hitting that bait and not taking it you can use a soft plastic trailer, I prefer the three-inch Bear Claw Grub from Bearpaws Custom Handpoured Baits. I like the Bearpaws grub because it comes with the scent baked right in to the bait, this will give you a definite edge on other anglers, because you will not need to use scent on the exterior of the bait.

Spinnerbaits are a great and versatile lure that have made a lot of many for companies in the fishing industry. The only thing I can that I can leave you with say is next time you go out on the water, I dare you to tie on a spinnerbait, and I know that you will not regret it.

Gordo Banks Pangas

San Jose del Cabo



June 8, 2008

Anglers



We are now a couple of weeks away from the official start of the summer season. Tourism continues to be in a slump due to the poor economy in United States. Complaints of super high airfares are rampant and with the skyrocketing fuel prices we expect there will not be a solution in the near future. Local weather patterns have been quite pleasant, mostly clear sunny skies, with highs near 90 degrees and lows averaging about 65 degrees. Oceans conditions have been relatively calm in the direction of the Sea of Cortez, this is where the majority of sportfishing fleets are now concentrated. Water temperatures have ranged from 74 to 78 degrees, clarity has fluctuated daily, but general consensus is that it has been favorable. Very extreme tide in recent days, close to a six foot tidal swing, this is about the extreme limit for this region, higher swells has been running as well, particularly on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas.



The striped marlin bite continues to be very strong, especially in the areas off of San Jose del Cabo to Desteladera. The only drawback has been the lack of larger baitfish, though there are large concentrations of bolito that have been encountered on the fishing grounds and they are being jigging up and used with good success as trolling baits. Plenty of mullet now schooling along the shorelines, but these never do make the best offshore baits, though when hungry enough the stripers will take them. The marlin which have been weighing in the 100 to 150 pound range have also readily been striking on live sardinas, which are now of very good size and have been found in over abundant quantities inside the Puerto Los Cabos marina. Larger gamefish could be seen feeding in the midst of the dark clouds of balled up baitfish right in the panga docking area. On one morning there was a monster sized snook that exploded through the bait ball and scattered the baitfish up on to the dry dock and even inside of some moored boats. Lots of smaller roosterfish, sierra and barracuda are now following this bait right inside of the marina.



The annual run of larger roosterfish that typically passes through this area during the first part of June has yet to develop. There are large numbers of juvenile sized roosterfish, but only a scattering of larger roosterfish are being encountered by anglers that have been trolling the inshore surf zone with live mullet, the preferred bait. Perhaps by next week we will have better reports in this department.



There has been a lack of pargo close to shore, so far only a handful of dogtooth or mullet snapper have been accounted for, perhaps they will be later this season as well. There are a mix of snapper species being found on the offshore banks, huachinango, yellow snapper and barred pargo. Striking on sardinas and yo-yo jigs. An occasional yellowtail, amberjack and cabrilla are also hitting the decks, some of them weighing over 30 pounds.



Not much to talk about for yellowfin tuna, on some days there are reports of fish seen feeding on the banks, but more often they are not striking, just an occasional tuna in the 10 to 30 pound class being accounted for, these fish were taken on either dead or live sardinas.



Early in the week there were some quality catches of dorado reported, this was when anglers found weed debris in the area of the Gordo Banks that were holding large numbers of do-dos, they were not monsters, but it was fast action for fish in the 10 to 20 pound range. Larger dorado were being found off of San Luis, this is where concentrations of bolito were schooling, one of the dorado favorite meals.



On Sunday, June 1 the annual Dorado Tournament was held out of La Playita. This year the event attracted some 35 teams, mostly pangas, but also a few cruisers. No huge numbers of fish, but at least fifteen respectable dorado were brought to scale by the 1:00 p.m. deadline. Gary Weis from Santa Monica was fishing with Gordo Banks Pangas skipper Chame Pino on the 22 ft. Killer and they accounted for the winning dorado, it weighed in at 45.5 pounds, caught on a bolito on the San Luis Bank.



In recent days there has been a early morning wahoo bite that has developed on the Inner Gordo Banks. Anglers with the normal arsenal of high speed wahoo lures have landed one or two hoo at first light, weights have ranged from 25 to 50 pounds.



The combined panga fleets launching from La Playita / Puerto Los Cabos sent out approximately 76 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count of: 8 wahoo,

38 striped marlin, 61 dorado, 11 yellowfin tuna, 205 roosterfish, 98 sierra, 8 yellowtail, 7 amberjack, 14 bonito, 204 various pargo species and 18 jack crevalle.



Good Fishing, Eric
