metal blade baits

Recommended Posts

I have never used metal blade baits. When do you use them, size, and color? Any good brands? I saw a bunch of them clearancing at Walmart for a buck. Don't recall the brand. Didn't pick any up since I have never used them before. Any input would be helpful.

Not sure if this will be any help, but becareful buying your blade baits at Walmart, their Spinnerbaits work fine, but I think I am probably the only guy that has Buzzbaits that run under the water, instead of on top, they were on clearance for a buck, and thought I'd give them a try. I'll say one thing, they are original, I would spend the couple extra bucks and pick up a couple brand name Buzzbaits. Check out Gander, they are also having some clearance sales, and you will probably get some that run like they are supposed to.
As far as color, I've always heard to stick with the chartruse or whites in Spinnerbaits, or something that is close to a shad color. I picked up a dozen or so that kind of covers the spectrum, with some in natural colors also, if I see one that looks different or catches my eye, I'll pick one up, but I only use them now and then so I don't focus on them, just passing on what I have heard in the past, you'll get some good answers here I'm sure, there are some knowledgeable guys on this forum, good luck.

Wormburner,
I FINALLY understand your motto on your signature, "Buy a trailer, help support my fishing habit." I looked under your profile and now it makes sense. It always made me curious after reading each of your posts, but now, I know.

Thought I'd share,

Are you talking about Cicada type baits? They look like a willow blade with a treble and a molded on weight? I think these baits definately have a place in the arsenal. As for name brands, I think they are like rattle traps and other rattle baits, there is not a bad one. It depends on what the fish want. They are good early spring baits when the fish are still deep on main channel and lake points. They should be jigged verticle for best results. Work them like a jigging spoon.

Thanks Clay. That is what I was looking for. I don't have that type of bait in my arsenal so I don't have much knowledge about them. It sounds like a good time to use them is when the water temps are on the colder side. Is this accurate? What about after cold fronts?

Yes, this is accurate. I think during weather swings in the spring they would work. I think that once the fish have gotten into their late spring early summer patterns other baits will work better. There will be more fish shallow where other baits will be affective. Hope this helps.

Bucketmouth, sorry thought you were talking about spinnerbaits, and buzzbaits.

Coach Dog, Yep I sell and lease semi trailers, and fishing is main habit, the two just kinda went together when I made a signature.

    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:      
    • Watch the two videos below and see what you think?  Wet land destruction or not?   I saw these clowns on Youtube and sent it in to the MN DNR and this was there reply and mind back to them.   May help to read the Wet land use description on the DNR web page as well.     Read bottom-up.     To: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR)  "Well you are the experts paid to protect our wet lands.  If you didn’t see any objectional wet land damage in either of the two videos I forwarded.   Then I guess I must have been mistaken what wetland and Wild rice bed damaged must be?  Just a question if there registered to operate in a public water area, do they have to use a boat launch like every other water craft or just fly off through the reeds like they did in the video?  Keep doing a great job guys!  May be I buy one.  Thanks for your time.  Steve"          Sent from Mail for Windows From: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Sent: Saturday, December 3, 2022 3:53 PM To: [email protected] Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR) Subject: Sherp Complaint Steve: I got an email sent to me through the info center regarding a wetland complaint you had sent in about a year ago.  I also saw the email you attempt to send Captain Seefeldt.  Just wanted to let you know the Captain was not  ignoring you, it looks like you misspelled his name in the original email you sent.   This spring after the snow/ice melted and things started to green up, one of our enforcement pilots flew around the area where the farm is located.  The pilot was unable to locate any areas of concern where the Sherp may have caused damage to the wetland.  The pilot also flew over other wetland areas close to the farm, but did not observe any damage. The Sherp is dual registered which would allow it to operate in a public water area.  If the other wetland/lake where they drove down the road is private property we have not received any complaints from landowners down there for trespass.   I have included the Captain in this email.  If you have any further questions feel free to contact either one of us. Thank you Conservation Officer Brice Vollbrecht, Bemidji #1 Station MN DNR Enforcement (Cell)-218-760-1798
