I'm now making 1 1/2oz-2 1/2oz size spinnerbaits for stripers, I"ve heard of using 3/8-1/2oz sizes but only to have them destroyed, that is because of the .035 wire, mine are made on .051gauge quite a bit heavier.

I am sure they will be killer. How do you fish them, spinning gear or baitcast? Do they cast a good disance well?

type in my name and click on my pics albums. click on pic for enlarge view and description, These are huge so I"ll be using a 11' 2piece Tsunami spinning rod with 25lb test. these lures are so massive you need a long rod to maneuver them and line to steady them. I've tried some of the Dacron type stuff, but I'm a little hesitant with retrieve presentation. A thicker line dia. holds the lure steadier. I don't know maybe too picky, the longer rod give much better maneuverability for steering these lures.These aren't for surf casting,or they could be ,but more for river fishing,much like casting jigs, On line they cost as much as 16-18$ a piece that's before shipping cost, so your talking about a 20$ lure, you want to know where your fishing as far as structure goes. Northland tackle makes some real nice ones, mine aren't as pretty, but they catch fish BIG FISH!
