I don't know of a way, but if there is someone who is very innovative out there this could be a "Million Dollar Idea" smile.gif

Good Luck,

Adding a "rattle" to a Spinner rig is easy...I typically will add one or two buck-shot rattle beads (Northland Tackle) in place of a couple of the others...Easy to due,,,defineately makes a difference on some days...Happy Hooking BFJ

BFJ, How did you add the buck-shot rattle beads to the rig? Where did you put it?

I also stormed up another idea adding rattle to your bottom bouncer, never tried it but thinking about doing that also.

Hog Hunter, Simply cut the hook from the snell, remove a couple of existing beads then insert the buck shotrattles retie

I too have added buckshots to spinners I have made. But couldn't you simply cut the knot at the top, unthread the existing spinner and beads, add the buckshots and redo the knot? That would be easier than cutting off the hook - at least for me it would.

For you walleye fisherman out there. Is there anyway way I could add rattle to my spinner rig when fishing for walleye. I know the blade gives off a viberation for them but can i add rattle to really get thier attention.

You dont need to do any cutting. Go to the dentist closest to you and get some of the rubberbands people use for braces. They are very small and perfect for this sort of thing.

Actually, I found these little things that have rattles on them that attach to hooks/jigs. Although I bought them for small jigs for fishing crappies, I never used them. I'd have to check but I think they'd attach to darn near anything.

Look around near the panfish/jig section at your local store and you might see them.

Hi Fishin'Bemidji
I always take the easy way out when it comes to tying knots and the knot on the top is a lot easier than the one for the hook. A boy scout I was not!

You know sometimes things are to simple to realize, I too used to cut the hook off until I realized one day that cutting the swivel off was easier.

Good Job!!!

they do make small rattles that can be attached either to the line, or to the lure itself. They can also be attached via the small rubber band method. As for bottom bouncers, excellent idea, although it's already been put into production. You can definitly modify an existing bottom bouncer to do the trick, or if you are smart, build your own and incorperate the bead filled plastic chamber into it.

Stamina tackle in Mpls makes a bead with a BB inside of it that goes on the line like a regular bead. I use them on my bobber rig above a sinker.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
