Hey guys! New member here. I grew up a bass fisherman and was taught how to fish a spinnerbait and a jig by an older gentleman almost 15 years ago. My fishing buddy was also an avid lure maker and I have memories of spending weekends in high school in his basement learning how to make R bends and blend skirts. Unfortunately my friend has had some serious medical issues and has been forced to not only give up fishing but also lure making. Recently he decided to pass down a large part of his inventory and tools to me and I am very grateful, however, I have been living and fishing in an inshore environment in SC for the last 6 years. While he will forget more than I will ever learn about building and fishing spinnerbaits for bass, he has limited redfish/trout experience. I have been chasing redfish/trout almost exclusively for the last six years and I am wondering how to turn these "freshwater" baits into inshore baits. I am not concerned with the strength of the hooks/tackle in general. I am curious if anyone has gone down this journey and would be willing to share some tips and tricks. I have started with "in-line" spinners with my favorite paddle tail as a trailer but am looking to move to spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
