Baitfish Spinner Rigs


The BAITFISH SPINNER RIGS are the hottest spinner rigs on the Professional Walleye Trail, and have claimed more 1st place winners than all other spinners combined! Their secret is a specially designed series of lifelike "holographic" Baitfish-Image® attractor blades that "match-the-hatch" and mimic gamefishes’ favorite meal . . . a crippled baitfish minnow! The shimmering blades spin, pick up light and reflect the Baitfish-Image® back with each revolution to produce the illusion of live bait. It fools wary fish and triggers aggressive strikes!

The BAITFISH SPINNER HARNESS has it all! They sport sticky-sharp Needle-Point hooks, durable snelled leaders and our "holographic" Baitfish-Image® attractor blades that provide maximum flash and lifelike reflection. They are available in three models with "single" or "double-hook" worm harnesses, and deadly behind Rock-Runner® Bottom Bouncer sinker weights.

  • In clear water, use natural baitfish colors like Silver Shiner, Perch & Rainbow Chub. In lightly stained water, sGold Shiner, Yellow Perch and Firetiger colors work best. For dark stained/muddy conditions, go to larger blades (#4, #5 or #6) in the hot colored fluorescents!
  • When trolling or retrieving a spinner, vary your speed by pumping the rod tip and with "S" turns & erratic "stop-and-go" movements from your motor!
  • When a bite is detected, hold rod steady and slowly drop hook towards fish before setting the hook! It’s often a 5 count. Let ‘em eat it . . . then stick it to ‘em!
