Meet the New SpinFish® Sizes From Yakima Bait Company
New from Yakima Bait® are smaller versions of the popular SpinFish® bait-holding lure. The new sizes include a 2.0 (2 inch) and 2.5 (2-1/2 inch) versions. Like the popular 3.0 and 4.0 sizes originally introduced the new sizes feature a patented pull-apart “Easy-Fill” bait chamber, scent-dispersing design that can be filled with your favorite bait. When trolled or still-fished in current this lure will produce a vibrating, spinning, wounded-baitfish action and alluring scent trail.
And while the bait that works best might be one found locally, the list of options might include: worm, leech, shrimp, crawdad, herring, anchovy, sardine, squid, goby, or alewife. After adding desired bait or scent push lure halves together and you are ready to fish. A cotton ball can be placed in the front half of lure to slow down bait dispersal when using canned tuna or liquid scents.
According to Yakima Bait president and CEO Dan McDonald, “these new smaller SpinFish sizes match smaller forage that walleye, perch, trout and kokanee depend on and larger predator fish often devour too.”
When rigging the new sizes in combination with conventional sinker or bottom walker, try a 36-to-60 inch leader. To draw fish in, try rigging 18-to-45 inches behind Lake Troll, dodger or flasher. To reduce/eliminate line/leader twist always use in combination with quality swivel, which can be positioned halfway down your leader or a few feet up the main line. Kokanee prefer the faster action a dodger or flasher provides but due to SpinFish producing a lot of its own action a 16-to-24 inch leader might perform best.
Unlike other bait-holding lures, SpinFish needs no rubber bands to keep the lure together. All SpinFish sizes can be rigged in combination with single siwash, double single or treble hook(s).
