At a Glance: Spinnerbaits

Spinnerbaits are combinations of jigs and spinners creating larger profiles and tremendous vibration and motion. Spinnerbaits are great options for fishing shallow to mid-depth waters. The variations include soft-body styles, skirted, and even dressed-hook styles. The spinnerbaits are designed to trigger the lateral line system on a predatory fish, attracting them to the bait. Spinnerbaits also are constructed to mimic the profile and vibrations of a baitfish, making them an ideal target for larger gamefish in clear water. Buzzbaits are especially great for fishing shallow water because they stay near the top and are only pulled under the surface when a fish bites the lure.

Popular brands of spinnerbaits available at FishUSA include Strike King, Accent, War Eagle, Z-Man and more.
