Go identical to trigger more bass strikes
Sometimes itís that extra little bit of clinking and clanking that can trigger a strike.
Sticking with his going-against-the-grain nature, West Monroeís Kenny Covington just loves taking off those different-sized blades and putting on two of the same size, especially when heís fishing the Ouachita River.
"Thatís one of my better-kept secrets," Covington revealed. "I canít tell you how many bass Iíve caught on a white spinnerbait with double-willow copper-colored blades that are both No. 4s or No. 4.5s."
According to Covington, putting on the same-sized spinners forces the blades to work against each other rather than in harmony with each other. A lot of times, itís that little bit of clinking and clanking that can trigger extra strikes.
"Blades that are the same size work against each other," he explained. "Rather than cut through the water like rotating knives, they knock around on each other and clang together to create an entirely different spinnerbait than bass have ever seen before."
