Hello, I have started to paint my own spinner blades and bodies for trout lures and am looking for inspiration and suggestions on what designs to do. if you have any designs that you know work well or fun/crazy ideas I would love to paint and design them. Thanks

Honestly, if you had an all black spinner and an all silver plate spinner, you could probably catch 90% of the trout willing to bite with just those two patterns.....but where's the fun in that.

I’m partial to copper blades with subdued bodies. Also like the rainbow patterns. I think a little bit of a bright color for contrast helps. like maybe a red dot on the blade or the little bit of pink in the rainbow pattern

I am partial to the copper Thomas Buoyant and brown Rooster Tail colors, they have caught many trout for me.

Wordens Fire Tiger Rooster Tails have caught more trout, for me, than anything else. Except for maybe Woolly Buggers and/or Teeny Nymphs.

@Snopro made a great comment above. All black spinners is deadly on Fall Nooks, on gray/foggy/overcast days. The same could also be true for trout.

I troll a wooly bugger 3 feet behind an egg sinker; it looks just like a minnow!

A trolled black woolly bugger, 3 foot leader, and 1/2 ounce egg sinker above a barrel swivel will slay’em!

I've only used them in still water, with 4 - 5' of leader tied to a torpedo bobber. One small split shot, about 12" up the line from the hook. To get the bugger to glide just under the surface. SLOWLY kick in a float tube and BAM!

For sea-run cutts, the weapon of choice is a gold-bladed Roostertail with brown body.

Yep!!! Small ones. They mimic a major food source: crawdad fry.
