Does the perfect spinner exist?

Snakehandler7
When I envision the perfect spinning lure, I envision something like a panther Martin meets a mepps, but with some actual weight to it. Idk. Can they make the whole rig out of tungsten or something? That sounds cheap.

What would be your ideal spinne? Better yet, have you found that sucker?

The one that would work in any depth of water in any weather for any kind of fish? 🤭

You have to make it yourself.

I concur with @Pni_fisherdude. After reading Jed Davis's book in the 80's, I began making my own. And if you follow his designs--and instructions based on the conditions--they are DEADLY!

P.S. Jed's advice isn't just theoretical either. He took a very scientific approach to figuring out our quarry. Get a copy of his book "Spinner Fishing for Steelhead, Salmon, and Trout. Read it and you will be well educated within a very short time span.

Thanks for the info I'll see if I can find the book.

Roostertails!

I prefer Panther Martins ... I've never actually had much luck with rooster tails. I've always gone with what works for me, so seldom actually try rooster tails ...

Brown 1/8 oz roostertail is a close to perfect as it gets, second place goes to either brown 1/4 oz or 1/16 oz roostertail, depending on what you're fishing for.

Some folks are like “rooster tails”

These right here have caught more rainbow's than any other lure for me. In this specific "Fire Tiger" pattern. And small brown Rooster's catch Blueback's like crazy too. Because they resemble baby crawdads, which Blueback's gorge on when they return to fresh water.

The only thing I have found, that outdoes those Rooster's above, are Woolly Buggers. But, then, those aren't spinners. (However they can EFFECTIVELY catch 'bows with a spinning rod too).
