It only has one hook so i would say “yes its legal”, It is very similar to the painted spinnerbait blades, but I don’t think I would pay that much money for one. That is going to be a great Northern lure!!:) Who’s blog did this come off of??

I lost a nice spinnerbait just like that last fall to a big snake while fishing for bucketmouths. Thanks for bringing up those painful memories..... wink

But yeah, unless it's 9+ inches and 3 ounces....no way would I bite on that offer.

It seems like one could paint a few eyes on the blades of a cheaper spinner bait...

i use $3.99 terminator ss spinnerbaits, just think how many more fish i could catch with that bad boy. i'd have to keep it locked in a safe(next to the ricos).

$23.00 for a spinner bait?! Those terminators are expensive enough for me. But this one must only catch record sized fish... and I can't afford to have a fish mounted right now anyway, so I'll stick to what i've got. wink

I figure it hurts enough when I get bit off on a $5-$10.00 lure.

I don't pay that much for muskie spinnerbaits, and those have the insurance of heavy leaders...

You could build one of those yourself for about $5 (less if you make them in bulk...)

And it would boom... All of us fishaholics can always seem to find a way to get new fishing lures to put a smile on our faces. Come on Riverrat your stock is rising as we speak.

I think that the extreme netters are a must with this bait... HAHA. The thing that sucks, is a guy like me has no idea how to make Lures, so if that is as good as it looks, I would probably buy a couple, thinking that I would have an advantage over the ones who wouldn't spend the money. And I am not some one with a bunch of spare change. But to have the edge would sure intrigue a guy. And I would have a couple, so that when those darn northerns take my bait for a ride, I would have a back up one.

The Lure builders love guys like me I guess

Honestly there is not one thing special about that bait. I myself rarely slow roll a spinnerbait, I know some do but if you think about it a spinenrbait almost always has the blades turning, so the detail on the blades is worthless, the head and wire design is nothing special, actually I think its pretty plain, and the skirt is no different than anyone elses, on top of that its not even tied its collared. No hidden weight, no special detail on the head, and worthless eyes and detail on the blade, save yourself some $$ and go buy some decent shelf spinnerbaits.

    • I know I would  That bacon really looked good!!!
    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.
    • Bash him all you want. We are in a surplus and that state is doing great. I hope the best for his health, and look forward to him finishing his term.
    • Hello everyone, I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore. I will be helping with a class for families to try ice fishing and am looking to show them the variety of baits to use. Is there anything in St. Paul? Why don't we have more bait shops anymore.
