#3 Mepps best spring pond bait ever.
Nope. Just crappie fish mostly. Every now and again I get a wild hair to catch some trout from the stocked creeks.
If I bass fish it is from my boat. Usually flip jigs or texas rigged beavers or something like that. If I try for smallmouth in the creeks I use texas rigged tiny brush hogs or slider worms.
I see. I only use the Mepps for Spring pond fishing... I've never used one in a lake.... Not weedless enough.
I prefer 'non-description spinner you never heard of and I prolly never use' spinners! They are awesome and WAAAAY BETTER THAN MEPPS OR ROOSTER TAILS BRO.
I use Mepps almost exclusively. I use #2 or #3 Algia when bass fishing, and #1 without the feather tail for trout.
I spent an afternoon wading around Energy Lake one afternoon in early October with a white Mepps Algia #3 catching bass after bass. It was a lot of fun.
Some of my all time favorite Smallmouth lures are in-line spinners.
1) use to be a #9 black and gold standard teardrop
2) was a 1/4 oz perch/fire tiger rooster tail gold blade.
Now the rooster tail is the only spinner I throw now , that's for quantity and quality.
Anyone know how to get into making your own inline spinner? Cause I lose way too many rooster tails and Mepps whenever I trout fish.
Wire, beads, spinner blade, and a hook. I think you want to use a pair of round nose pliers to bend the line loop.
Bass pro has components but I am sure there are several dedicated lure making places on the web.
I've thought about this too.
Parts are easy to find, just search lure components . I get a lot of my stuff from http://www.do-itmolds.com
I bought all the parts to make my own ( the Musky Killers and Mepps#5 are pricey ).
You can put your own together for about 1/2. That's buying dressed hooks, blades, beads, the whole works.
If I think of if I'll post a picture of one I made and a " factory " one side by side.
When you make your own do they spin well? I guess that is my question. Because I've bought the cheaper versions and the problem is they do not spin well at all.
Yea , they spin every bit as good as " store bought "
But the bigger lures are the only ones I made. I would think if you bought good components ( clevises and blades ) they would spin just as good ( maybe better depending on the brand )
