Spinnerbait Tactics That Work
How many fish have you missed?
It is said you could be missing over half the fish that are coming after your spinner bait. Why? Because you're getting short strikes.
There is one way to fix that situation and it's easy to do.....add a trailer hook! Maybe one trailer hook isn't enough, you can add two or even three. Yes three, Hank Parker says he uses up to three trailer hooks, if it's good enough for Hank then it's good enough for me.
A lot of people think you put a trailer hook up on the spinner bait hook, that isn't the case.
For best results, put the trailer hook down by the tip of the hook of the spinner bait, that allows for more natural movement and doesn't confine the hook.
Think about it, if you're getting short strikes then they aren't going to hit the first hook anyway. Try this the next time you go out and see the difference.
