Thread: What kind of spinners are these?

    Default What kind of spinners are these?



    So what kind of spinners are these ones, and can I order them thru the mail?

    the two on the far left look like king killers to me, in clear water anyways, but you tell me, I've never cast gear for kings before, just bottom fished with spin-n-glos. Usually I'm fishing pretty heavy current (cuz that's where my boat owning buddy takes me) but this year I'm trying a deep calm channel behind an island at a creek mouth, so I'll try hucking spinners... Unless you share better ways with me. I'll try some roe under a float too.

    So you big river fishers, are you confident in chucking spinners into a big river like the Kenai to catch the big kings? Or do you have better ways?

    I dont know what those are but have you ever fished Kodiak custom lures? Seems to be the best for kings. Fish them low and slow. You can get them at bnj. Or three rivers tackle

    I don't think they are a particular name brand but rather "home made". On a particular water on a particular day any of them will catch fish.

    It's hard to beat a Vibrax for kings if a spinner is the weapon of choice.
    They are available everywhere that sells tackle.

    I haven't tried spinners on kings yet, just ever used the spin-n-glos. Our camp stuck to two colors of them and most always had all the action on the bar unless the run was real hot and everybody caught,; two colors white/pink clowns and Fluor-orange/fluro-yellow lettuce and tomotoe colors. I was hoping to find some spinners representative of those colors. Haven't tried the Kodiaks yet, but will get on ordering some pretty quick.

    So what are the best fish catching colors to use in Alaska? Can you tell me what color is the most reliable? And I'll order up a bunch.

    If I were you I would wait until your here then buy them locally. The local store can tell you what colors to get. Especially since it does sometimes vary from year to year on what is the hottest.
    I personally like chartreuse and orange mixed or solids.
    But lots of colors work well.
    Also each river has its own hot colors at times.
    If you really want some like in your pic they would be fairly easy to make.
    A wire former would be handy but a set of round nose pliers would work.
    I'll check my sources for those blades and bodies and see what I come up with.
