Much thought is given to spinner blade color selection. I like to keep it simple, however, and use water clarity as a guide in helping me select which spinner rigs to use. When the water is clear, I opt for metallic colors, while off-colored waters call for some of the brighter colors. I prefer Pro-Walleye Crawler Harnesses for much of my spinner fishing, using the UV Silver Christmas and UV Gold Christmas patterns in clear water, and the UV Hot Steel and UV Tiger patterns in off-colored waters.

Whether the waters you fish are off-colored or clear, odds are good that the walleyes in those waters will be susceptible to fast fishing methods this summer. Using the tips just presented can, in fact, probably help you get in on some fast fishing this summer!

As always, enjoy your time on the water, and remember to include a youngster in your next outdoors adventure!
