“Break­ing down Spin­ner­baits” Terry Bolton iden­ti­fies the key com­po­nents of spin­ner­bait de­sign and se­lec­tion. – Matt Wil­liams

Terry Bolton didn’t write the book on spin­ner­bait fish­ing, but the per­son­able FLW Tour pro and hard-core “blade” nut from Pa­d­u­cah, Ky., prob­a­bly could. His spin­ner­bait prow­ess is largely cred­ited for his suc­cess as a tour­na­ment an­gler and his mem­ber­ship in FLW’s $1 mil­lion club. Part of his suc­cess with the clas­sic lure can be at­trib­uted to the fact that the Ranger pro has learned – through trial and er­ror – how var­i­ous spin­ner­bait com­po­nents can be com­bined to make a spin­ner­bait more ef­fec­tive in dif­fer­ent fish­ing sce­nar­ios. “The main thing is learn­ing which type of spin­ner­bait is best suited for a spe­cific pur­pose, be it slowrolling on ledges in 20 feet of water, fish­ing around rocks and boul­ders, or fish­ing around brush or grass,” he says. Here’s how the 12-time For­rest Wood Cup qual­i­fier breaks down one of the most ver­sa­tile bass fish­ing lures ever in­tro­duced.
