    FIN SPIN

    What size hook on the 1/32?

    I was thinking about getting some really small chatter baits and trying those.

    his jigs are WAY too pretty to put in the water , they are really artwork , makes a road runner style in whatever your heart desires and is well known for them in some circles .
    but in the end , 1/16 or heavier is the best size underbelly spinner blade jig weight most of the time and it really needs a willow blade , the colorado style blades are just not what the doctor ordered in most cases ,to much vibration for me in lots of cases .
    and 1/32 are so light they tend to act squirrely and that aint fun ,a twisting bladed bait wont get many bites .
    of course , this is just my sometimes humble opinion

    The Fin Spin will catch fish. But IMO is a poorly designed jig head because of the taper.
    Soft plastics are a real pain with this head.
    I wonít be buy any more unless they redesign or put aggressive keeper/ grippers on it.

    They are not American Thumpers, they are Toad Thumpers, or at least that was what I found. He makes a 1/32nd with a #2 flat eye hook. He says they are designed to swim horizontal when long lining.




    Very tricky to get a bladed jig to swim horizontal while long lining. Everything seems to work to give it a nose down orientation. I make multiple styles of bladed jigs for myself, and it requires a lot of attention to achieve a natural alignment. From the hook, to the knot, to the weight, to the plastic bait, and finally to the blade itself and how it is affixed, everything has to work together to achieve a horizontal pull at speeds suitable for long lining. Not saying his will not swim horizontal though, as I havenít actually tried them. Besides, the fish still eat them even if they are nose down. LOL
