Fishing spinners, also referred to as spinners, are almost an icon of spinning fishing. Nearly everyone knows them and they are highly appreciated by generations of anglers. How come? Well, these lures are both versatile and relatively easy to use. For many, they are the basic tool for catching pike, trout, chub, ide or perch. Their large sizes attract the plump brown trout and catfish.
They are simple in design. A rotating paddle is attached to the loaded body with a wire shaft – and that’s it! A fishing spinner works in two ways. It shines, attracting the attention of actively hunting and curious predators. It also generates an extremely strong hydroacoustic wave detected the predator’s lateral line. The wave allows the fish to locate it, hence provoking the attack.
It follows from the above text that the spinner is easy to use. Sure, but it does not mean that fishing is monotonous. Late autumn or even winter is the perfect time for slow, almost anaemic dragging the lure in water, on the verge of keeping the spinner working. In spring and summer, it is worth being a bit more inventive and diversifying your activity. For example, you can change the pace of dragging, make more or less sudden movements with the rod, draw circles with the tip, or even stop the lure – the sky is the limit!
The wide range of spinners allows you to choose the perfect model for your fishing ground and fish preferences, regardless of whether you want to catch pike from over dense vegetation, a predator observing a school of smaller fish at a greater depth or a river chub lurking behind a water-dipping tree.
