When you're creating spinnerbaits of your own, how much trouble do you go to to try and match the forage of a specific lake you plan on fishing? I personally don't go to much trouble. I just try to use color schemes that will draw strikes based on overall conditions, water clarity (or lack of it), and maybe time of year. Sometimes I even go with "the shock factor" by using extremely gaudy baits that I know the fish haven't seen before. This works really well for me in dirty water or under low light conditions, such as dusk and dawn. Should I be putting more effort and thought into this? I try to keep things simple and basic and it seems to have worked for me over the last 20 years, but maybe I'm missing something! I look forward to your comments and feedback
I was reading an earlier post in regards to seperating skirt strands. I use a hair comb. Seems to do the job every time. I start at the tie off. After streching and snipping off the tabs. You can get a multi pack of combs at the dollar store. Hope this tid bit might help someone.
