CHOOSING YOUR SPINNER FOR FRESHWATER FISH

Trolling in a pond, lake or river enables you to target trout as well as freshwater predators such as northern pike, yellow perch and even largemouth bass. It is a prospecting technique which enables you to continuously explore new spots. There are two types of freshwater spinners: rotating spinners and undulating spinners

 

ROTATING SPINNERS

Rotating spinners are generally used in rapid waters with a current and can be used in a lake. It is made of a spinner blade that is usually oval, which rotates around a metal shaft which reels in to bring in the lure. The sparkles emitted from the spinner blade are attractive to nearby predatory fish, and trigger attacks.

UNDULATING SPINNERS

Undulating spinners are effective in large bodies of water (such as lakes) with little or no current. The weight and specific shape of the undulating spinner enables you to cast further but dive quickly, which enables you to prospect several water layers.
