    Way to try something new to you! I try and stay away from 3 blades but make sure you keep using willows (maybe a colorado as smaller blade) they don't provide as much lift and can be kept on the bottom or just above the grass. Gold blades for cloudy and silver for clear days, at night paint the blades black and hold on! They work best around moored boats and structure best.

    I really want to put in some work with chatterbaits and see what type of damage I can do, same principle on the flashy bits, but a bit of vibration as well.

    And there's another lure I've always been skeptical of. Another thing to put on the list.

    The venerable set_da_hook used to put the hurt on the toad spotties using Zman chatterbaits with regularity!

    I think the disagree is for the blade discription. Colorado's are your slow rollers. They displace a lot more water and stay lower on the water column. Willows provide flash and can be worked easier if you wanna speed up the retrieve. The color description with the conditions are spot on tho. I haven't used a Colorado bladed spinnerbait in the bay yet but I'm sure they are more effective because of their tendency to stay low and slow.

    Spotties on spinnerbaits are dope tho! They smash them. If I could just get one to hit a crankbait tho.

    Imo Colorados are hard to keep down unless slow rolled therefore they provide more lift. Willows can be worked faster without rising as much off the bottom.

    Hell yea!! First post but long time viewer but I just started using the spinners and poopers recently. Before this season I never had the confidence to use them but this season I've been doing pretty good with the spinners, not as much with the poppers. I use a 3/4 white spinner and I've been starting to get some confidence with it . I also have a kayak w a ff so it's a lot easier to find where there at. Let me know what's up if anyone's trying to hit the kelp, I launch from McCall street usually alone at the beds. I have a little girl now so my girl only wants me hitting the beds if I'm with someone.... so hmu if you are trying to go I'm going tmrw 5/16 so lmk

    Brings back memories of fishing spinner baits at Spanish Landing beach many years ago and getting funny looks from the other guys around me...with the occasional, "you fish spinner baits in saltwater?" .....Shhhhh! They work!

    Spinnerbaits are like spottie crack, they litterly slam them. I've had the best luck with Phenix pro line series in 1/2oz. The durability is pretty good and they have a compact size which helps with short strikes. most of the time I'm slow rolling them on the bottom or just about the grass
