Berkley BladeDancer

7 posts in this topic

I was watching a Lindners Angling Edge video and in the Slop Fishing segment they were plugging the Berkley Bladedancer. I generally view any lure recommendations (even the Lindners) with a skeptical eye, especially when the fisherman is sponsored by the manufacturer.

Anyone ever use this lure? If so, waddya think? Does it work or is it junk?

Been using them off and on now for 2-3 years, so far no takers. honestly we don't use them alot but have used them enough that I have little faith in them.

i have used it in the past.. caught a few bass on it not many though. i think it rides a little to high in the water, even the heavier ones. if your fishing shallow and around a lot of thick cover or snags it would be ok. Not one of my favorite lures in the box though.

I've been using the skirted weedless version for a few years now. They are awesome in rice and pads. The weedless version has a better hook than the regular blade dancer, which is junk. If you like using Jaw Breakers, Moss Bosses, or any other weedless spoon, try the blade dancer. What I like about it is the swimming action, it has a good wobbling action when dropped into the holes in the weeds.

I have one, weedless in black, I like it with a 6" power worm instead of the little curl tail they send with it. It is a slop/weed/transition area bait. But I tend to use it as an alternative when the go to's are not producing, or as a go back when a productive area has been worked once.

I prefer the Jawbreaker spoon first though. I have one tied up for a lot of the "slop fishing" part of the season.

I picked up a couple from a bargain bin last year. Thought they would be an alternative to a chatterbait. Not so much. Very difficult to keep from spinning out of control and also could not keep it from coming to the top and skipping out of the water. Glad they were cheap, gave the remaining baits to some kids fishing from shore. They were still in package so they were excited to have them. For all I know they clobbered em using those baits. I hope so, cause they just did not work for me.

GTN - same thing for me. I ended up tossing it in the trash.
