Spinnerbaits have been around the bass-fishing world for decades for a simple reason — they catch bass.
But many bass anglers think spinnerbaits are only for fishing shallow in tight cover and through the weeds.
Dr. Todd A. Kuhn, host of Game & Fish’s Beyond the Bait Powered by Streamlight video tips series, says with so many styles and sizes, spinnerbaits can catch bass from the top to the bottom in the water column -- from deep water to skinny water.
In Episode 7 (“Spinnerbaits from Top to Bottom”), Kuhn tells you how a spinnerbait works in catching bass, as well as the difference between Colorado and willow spinnerbait blades, and when, where and how you should use the lure.
Learn more about spinnerbait fishing for bass in the video above.
