Tip-up spinner rig colors

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I tip-up fish a small spring fed lake which has relatively clear water - you can see bottom in 7-8 fow. Other than silver, what spinner colors would you guys recommend for my livebait rigs? Thanks, later.

Hey,

I tied up a few QS rigs last year with the really small blades in black. Just enough to be considered legal. That blade against the darker top of the back on a sucker is pretty hard to really see, it sure doesn't stand out.

Not as much a color recommendation as a subtle approach for clear water. Hope that helps.

if hoping to attract pike with the spinner in clear water I would use silver as mentioned and gold cause of the flash.

I have tried a lot of colors and all have had their moments. As you say silver and gold are always good choices but for the last few years orange/black and orange/white have been my favorites. Trying to match the black on black with a small spinner is an excellent idea to try also.

Last year my 'Christmas tree rig' worked well - a silver spinner with a couple pretty pearl red and green beads.

Years back an acquaintance beat me to my flag and pulled in about a 20lber. That was on my homemade double bladed red and white that was packed with matching beads. Sometimes they like the jewels.

I'm telling ya if you take a look at the old color research done by infish and a few others pink always was on top for visability.

JP - You prefer the Two Lips, Cherry Grove, or Strawberry Hill? Rose Sharon and Daddy's Little Girl are options also.

    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
    • No, shes not but on a paper thin rotted floor your kitty would fall through. I can see why she worried.  I didn't because it wasn't on my side!!
