Berkley BladeDancer

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
