    Re: Salmon Spinner Questions

    Here's the situation... Same lure side by side... 1 lure just split ring... 1 lure swivel + split ring then hook... Do they look to far apart..? The blade to hook gap..?





    Hard to tell from the pics I should of hung them up right...

    Re: Salmon Spinner Questions

    What do you guys think..? Hook closer to spinner blade..? or further away..? Opinions please... Silvertrons are close as it gets... LoL... I got a old spinner builder saying close as you can get... and newer generation guys looks like they leave some room...

    Re: Salmon Spinner Questions

    I'm having a bit of trouble with some of the crimps I'm doing on the salmon spinner's I'm building... On about every other crimp its cocking my straight inline loop... I haven't managed to figure out either a wire position or crimp groove in the crimpers to avoid this... Nothing like ruining a spinner last crimp... Any advise appreciated... Its on the titanium wire...

    Re: Salmon Spinner Questions

    Thanks fellas... There is definitely a learning curve on building spinners... The actual .035 wire would be easier to work with than the titanium wire if I had a wire former tool... Still contemplating that... All places in town are out... Right now the titanium is easier to work with...Im hoping the titanium is rigid enough for them to run right... Bending that .035 by hand is not easy if you want a good looking loop... I already found out to give myself a little extra for the titanium wire LoL... You'll get a few holes in your fingers if you try to bend a loop in it with not enough extra wire... Only time will tell. They both have pluses and minuses... But if they run right... and the crimps hold up titanium would definitely be the way to go... No more bent spinners would be a good deal... Probably not for lure companies tho... LoL...

    Re: Salmon Spinner Questions

    See we are all in agreement on the hook tubing LoL... I wish they didn't put it on but it hides janky looking wire twists... First thing I do when I buy a spinner is cut that stuff off... Or at least enough off so the hook moves free...

    1. Silver is what I use the most. I also like Silver that are half red and half silver.(I paint them myself) Last season brass or copper worked well for me. I used a brass body and shiny brass double blade blue fox and it was killer.

    2. Always double blade. I think double blade gives out a little more vibration and flash which seems to bring out their aggressive response.

    3. Beads - red, pink, yellow. The same or in combination. I don't know if the bead color makes any difference but red is my favorite.

    4. Trebles

    5. No

    looks like you'll be ready to roll when the season starts.
