Catch more walleye by customizing your spinner rigs to give the fish exactly what they want
Consisting of a few beads, hooks and a rotating blade, spinner rigs—often pulled behind a bottom bouncer—are one of the all-time great walleye presentations. But there’s more to these simple-looking rigs than meets the eye. Learning how to customize your spinner rigs allows you to match the attitudes of walleye, as well as fish more effectively under a variety of conditions. The ready-made spinner set-ups you see in stores rarely cover all the options, but with a little tinkering of the interchangeable and easily available parts, you can customize your own rigs in a wide variety of ways.
