How to Get More Vibration From Your SpinnerbaitsSpinnerbaits catch lots of bass. Plain and simple. But there are ways to tweak them to make them catch even more bass! Today we’re going to talk about How to Get More Vibration From Your Spinnerbaits, giving you an advantage that will put more bass in your boat.

What Shape and Size?

Most people know that the shape and size of the blades on your spinnerbait will determine how much they vibrate. Some people, though, don’t understand how much difference the blades can make.

These People Are Missing Out on Lots of Bass!

How to Get More Vibration From Your SpinnerbaitsColorado blades are, by far, the best blades for creating lots of vibration. They are superior to willow leaf blades and Indiana blades. Their big, round shape moves a lot of water as they spin. And the amount of water they move helps attract more fish.

This is super important in specific conditions, such as muddy water, stained water, low-light conditions and after dark.

The bigger the blade, the more water it moves, and the more vibration it creates.

Blades or Wire?

What most people don’t realize, though, when it comes to How to Get More Vibration From Your Spinnerbaits, is that the wire you use to make your spinnerbaits also has a huge impact on vibration.

Different gauges and types of wire can either enhance or dampen vibration.

Heavy wire stifles vibration. It’s stiff, and it doesn’t “give” as the blade rotates. This muffles the vibration of the blade.

Lighter wire allows the blade to move freely. And this movement gets transmitted to the wire, sending more vibrations out into the water. The bass feel these vibrations, which attracts them to the lure.

Knowing which blades to choose and which types and sizes of wire to use is critical to building a spinnerbait that will vibrate as much as possible.

When it comes to choosing the right blades for your spinnerbait, it can sometimes seem overwhelming.

There are hundreds of different sizes and styles available. When you throw all of the various colors and finishes into the mix, now you’re talking about thousands of possibilities!

Spinnerbaits are one of the most versatile baits that you can make when it comes to catching bass and a multitude of other species. And nobody can argue with the fact that you could throw just about any blades on a spinnerbait and it will catch some fish.

But how do you squeeze the most potential out of your spinnerbait? How do you make it the most effective it can be for specific conditions? It pays big dividends to take the time to understand how different blades can change the way your bait behaves and attracts fish.

Different styles and blade shapes create different levels of vibration and flash under the water. This can increase or decrease the ability of a fish to find your lure. And all of this is based on water clarity, light conditions, water depth and a host of other factors.

Spinnerbait blade colors and finishes will also change how well a spinnerbait can be seen. Nickel, gold, copper and brass are some of the most popular finishes and they’ve been around long enough to be proven fish catchers.

Painted blades and blades with photographic finishes have emerged onto the market in recent years. They’ve made a pretty big splash in the marketplace, no pun intended. These blades allow the angler to add color or realism to their bait. This sets them apart from the ordinary spinnerbaits fished by the vast majority of anglers.

Sometimes a simple change in blade color can make all the difference in the world and change a slow outing into one that you’ll remember for years to come. Different colors will offer better visibility in varying water clarity.
