spinner on Rapala
I tried putting a spinner on the back of a four inch Rapala, the idea being that the spinner would replace the missing tail. I'm sure I'm not the first person to try this, but if you haven't, but wondered how it would work, here is my report. The spinner creates a lot of resistance, preventing any swimming action in the lure. So far I've only used it once at a small lake, with no bites, but I don't think this is difinitive proof that it doesn't work. You still have something that looks like a minnow and has a lot of flash and vibration. I'd like to try this with some of my other hard lures. I think with the right combination on the right lake, it might still be a winner.
Any one else have any experience with this?
