Well let's see. Just about anything in sizes 3,4,5 in pink, orange, green, red beads with silver, copper, brass and colored blades in pink, red, orange and chart.

Have to find what works for you really and it does differ from river to river, at least it does up here. One river red is hot where another chart is killer and yet another pink is the thing.

Will work better to let us know which rivers and where you are gonna be fishing to get the best help.

I honestly do not think color matters that much really..
Size 3 and 4.. 5 if the water is really ripping or deep.
Try size 4 pink with mini pink hootchie.
I think the silver blade blue body by R&B look mighty sexy! :cool:

The blades you make yourself are the best.
TCO's are good too, but just a bit spendy.

Well, for the extra UV killer addition thing, the minis are pretty darn good!
But I just dont have enough to pull out 8 bucks for a spinner if we are using preds for coho. They are cheaper than GDFs (which I have about 30 of) but GDF's are spendy too, unless you get them for 30-50 scents a spinner :cool:

last year at cedar for coho i was next to this little old vietnamese guy who got snagged up. well he started pulling and he actually retrieved a ball of gear about 15" in diameter made up of primarily of spinners and spoons. it was classic, he started shouting "im rich im rich!" probably about 100$ or so of gear. we all got a good laugh out of it and then went back to slaying them... it just goes to show... u never know where you'll strike gold :lol:

The only thing color wise that seems to make any huge difference is a brass blade. 14/17 coho last year were on old tarnished brass blades with the rest coming on orange blades.

It was a waste of Brass

It was a waste of Brass

The first pic is a few of the SPinners that I found, I dont know if they are what you are Talking about, but they sold those at Joes for $8'



and the Second pic is a Spinner I got from a Friend and he got it from Russia,
He caught his first trout on That Spinner. I was Woundering if it would Work for Coho?

You have two GDFs (the two with black circles) and a few bob toman's, and I can't tell the others. They are pretty rusty, but unless the hooks are unrusted and sharp and the wire is un damaged, keep em! Otherwise, tear them apart, save the beads/blade/clevis/whatever and re build em!
They are too big for coho too.
