    So I was watching a Jimmy Houston fishing show and he said if you are having a tough time catching bass this time of the year you might want to try a spinner bait. Ok that sounds good so I fix up a old spinner with a new skirt and trailer and it payed off spot on.....caught 2 to bass back to back and that was it. The fishing has really been slow for me the last couples of days....good to try new stuff.

    I have lots and of spinnerbaits and yet they always seem to stay safe in my boat or in cabinets in my garage. Years ago they were definitely a go-to bait for me and somehow just slowly got retired one by one.
    I really need to think about taking them out for a swim one day.
    Found a pic of my last spinnerbait fish and now your post is giving me inspiration bajacamp.
    Thank you and tight lines always. :)

    Dance and Roland, big time commercial promoters! Love Hank Parker, all about family! Jimmy, he can't stop giggling! Is Orlando still alive? The In- Fisherman, about what's truly important in life!

    Oh yeah Saturday fishing shows.....I really liked them all but Bill Dance would be my favorite when he would have guests like Terry Bradshaw or Jerry Reed just to name a few, not only a fishing but funny

    Roland says it would make a good Turkey call! I hope bajacamp doesn't mind the turn his post has taken!

    Who says you can't train bass to do tricks?

    Just give the bass a real minnow every time it strikes or even comes close to the Helicopter lure and soon the bass will be killing that thing.
