Bolton is a big fan of us­ing a trailer on his spin­ner­baits for adding bulk and in­creas­ing the size of the bait’s pro­file, es­pe­cially in deep-water ap­pli­ca­tions where vis­i­bil­ity is lim­ited.

“When you get down there in 15 to 25 feet of water there isn’t a whole lot of light pen­e­tra­tion,” he says. “That’s where I like some sort of rib­bon-tail trailer about 3 1/2 to 4 inches long. They aren’t near as easy to find as they used to be, but you can bite down a worm if you need to. A Zoom U-Tail is a good one.”

One of his fa­vorites for shal­low water is a Zoom Fat Al­bert grub. In clearer water where speed is im­por­tant, he likes a split-tail trailer.
