Bait with a rotating petal, differences and peculiarities

Jigs with lures recently almost forced out of our boxes spinning the good old “iron”. But there are times when no lures tin not do namely without the turntables and other baits, having in its structure any of the rotating element. These appearance simple devices will be discussed, especially its nuances. What are spinning lure with rotating petals and what are their differences and peculiarities?

Let’s start with the classics of spinners, commonly called “decks” and “Uralkali”.

Served as the standard products company MEPPS, and therefore key terms in the designation of types of lures and forms of their petals taken most of its directories, for example, dividing the petals of sizes (from No. 00 to No. 5) and petal shapes (Long spin at an angle of about 30°; Comet — 45° and Aglia — 60°). Even choosing turntables from other manufacturers, we still orientirueshsya “MapSource scale” for their own convenience.

However, not all manufacturers produce “decks” with the petals, like the MEPPS, exceptions is, for example, the American spinner with the petals forms the Colorado. A considerable number of spinners and all have very original shapes, and sizes have their own. It is primarily an old Swedish classic from MYRAN or, say, predpolojenie from the same MEPPS and BLUE FOX. There are “turntables” class “inline”, distinguished by its special constructive — they don’t have handles (clamps). As example XD spinners from MEPPS, as well as a complete line of turntables from PANTHER MARTIN.

Spinner baits are made for fishing in different conditions. For catching on a strong current set heavier cores, for example, MEPPS Hard Long. Have peredneprivodnyh “fans” of the core do not, and instead it is a sinker-head that allows you to catch them at the bottom using speed wiring.

Petal spinners MEPPS Lusox, for example, easy to start and runs at an angle of 20-25°, not only on wiring, but if you fall on pause and when you jerk the lure up — and in this lies the main idea of creating “fans” of this design. Furthermore, if the sinker-head to remove, it would make a great bait for fishing in the surface layer of water over the grass carpet.

Spinners can twist the line. To deal with this in different ways. One of the options — front ogruzka, the other a core with a displaced center of gravity, most often in the form of fish. The company lures SAVAGE GEAR core consists of several balls, one of which is larger than the other, made of tungsten and drilled with offset. The “fans” of the Krasnoyarsk company WATER BEETLE the core is symmetrical relative to the axis, but the center of gravity due to the internal cavity. The American “urasaki” EPPINGER Osprey Notangle protivoshokovymi device is simple limb axial wire at a 45°angle.

If the bait is not protected from twisting the fishing line, but fishing is OK, then we can always put a swivel. Only place it should be required closer to the bait, not on the other side of the leash, otherwise the sense from it will not! And do not put the swivel of unknown origin should not risk the lure, and eyes), a trophy, too.

Now a little about the hooks on spinning lures. Equipment “vertustech” tees additional funds often referred to as jewelry, also brings its favor. In some reservoirs the grayling and trout have a positive attitude to the flies of feathers. Pike quickly responds to the increase in the total volume of the bait, and it can not only fly, but also silicone tail Twister, or even “eyes” on the tee, moved from the winter balancer. However, there are “turntables”, which was originally equipped with smaller spinners with eyes from the balancer, and more — with brand eyes.

Flies are mounted on the tee in different sizes. Large fur from the tail of a deer, elk or cattle, so under water, giving the bait a larger volume and to some extent covering the hook from the grass, and sometimes even save from thorns. So why do some lures catch better and others worse? Often two the best spinner different manufacturers show completely different results. Spend a little examination. You need to compare the materials of the petals, their thickness, shape, and bend. Then compare the thickness of the wire and the design, shape handles, which rotate the petals.

Petal usually made of brass (you can check with a magnet, moderately thin, stamped neatly and evenly, stainless steel wire axis elastic, tough enough. Handles smooth, free from burrs and distortions. Structurally, the arms are different, the most successful of the tapered washers, they are less wound onto themselves algae when posting due to their more streamlined shapes. Petal from excessively thick metal will be harder to engage and more likely to stray, too thin will start easy but will be exposed to different kinds of injuries. Needed a kind of “Golden mean”, and for different numbers of spinners it is different.

The standard thickness of metal again, you can take the petals from MEPPS. The arms (clamps) MEPPS can also serve as samples. Some models of turntables of different companies equipped with very useful appliances that help to quickly replace the hook. These devices differ from each other, but in General, a given function is performed. Trolling with such a system can be retrofit directly on the fishing quickly enough — for example, to replace the usual tee for “embellished” or dynarnic.

In addition to classic turntables, there are other spinning bait, having in its structure a rotating petal: “turntables”Tandem with two blades on the same axis; tailspinner and similar lures, which usually includes the word “spinner”, spinnerbait…

Tandems are different from the simple classic of spinners only an additional petal impaled on the same axis. They are bulkier, heavier, make more noise when you post and are very effective when fishing for active fish.

Tailspinner, as a rule, represent a massive and weighty body in the shape of a fish from metal, less plastic. This fish is usually fitted tee and petal on the swivel located in the rear of the lure.

Japanese lure DUEL Salt Spinnef like tailspinner. It has the curious feature of petal is fixed to the shackle by means of a winding ring. But the Japanese just do not do anything, and why complicate the build process and add an element in the equipment of bait? Is similar mount petal makes it work more stable, and generated vibrations are stronger.

Spinnerbait — a strange, at first sight, the bait is in the form of a wire “arm” at one end of the petal Il! set of blades, the other sinker-head hook with a silicone skirt. Liked it not for everyone. To understand and accept, you must master not only the technique of his cast (it’s pretty parasit), but also to deal with the technique of its filing and of places of application.

Because the spinnerbait is flying not very far and is not as accurate as we would like, to use well, better than in calm weather. The best areas for fishing on spinnerbait will be grass with vertically in the water stems. From horsetail and rare cane these lures for spinning are usually successful kicking. When passing the “Windows” of clean water among the grass give the spinnerbait to freely fall to the bottom of the petal (or petals) will spin. When the bait reaches the bottom, raise the bait up a rod or podnachivaet coil, making the next “step”. That is a spinnerbait you can not only uniformly, but also speed the transaction.

You can still apply the bait with short stops in which her “skirt” will be a moment to bloom like a flower, and in the beginning of the movement to take shape again. If you catch overseas miracle does not work, you can replace it with a “skirt” on the Twister or vibrohvost, sometimes it helps. Recently the firm has a WATER BEETLE appeared spinning lure Locust (“Locust”) with a rotating petal, when posting at the bottom Cirkewwa on the ground. She caught pike, perch, large salmon.

There is another group of lures that have spinning in the water element is any screw, not the petal. It’s all kinds buzzbait, products homebrew under the name “impeller”, or “propellers”, as well as the Devonian, at the expense of the blades rotates and the body itself. Devon is part of the twisting of the fishing line ahead of the rest. Even modern, is equipped with ball bearings products RB I prefer to equip Berlusconi, and double and triple better.

And the curtain — a little bit about spinning tackle. For the past twenty years, many of our anglers seriously interested in true rods of high modulus graphite. However, for fishing the “iron” is enough “dark” rods, a much more modest part of the material and, consequently, prices. But it is very rare to find a fisherman who has a special spinning rod for fishing the classic bait.

For example, for fishing on small spinning lures I years use MAXI-MUS Egoist 76 with the test up to 10 g. This lovely versatile spinning reel excellent throws my microscopic self-made “fan” and “impeller” when fishing on microrack and margin its graceful Blanca enough to counter the very big fish, which is sometimes inclined to attack such a small bait.

For fishing on small spinnerbait, tailspinner and “turntables” up to number 3 I take JS Nixx Inshore 76 with the test to 21, It to its name (“Shore”). He’s like a catapult just shoots any bait “over the horizon” without undue effort, about such speak: “throws himself”. Although the main purpose of the spinning — jigs-baits, and secondly, crankbaits, turntables he copes not worse, but awesome sensation of his Blanca allows you to experience literally the slightest touch of the bait to something under water — figuratively speaking, “zapped”.

As a universal spinning for trips on smaller rivers, or for fishing from a boat Inshore Nixx very good. For fishing on the largest in my boxes of turntables and other spinning lures for spinning rod I prefer a MAXIMUS Raptor-x86 test to 1 oz. Rod building extra fast with a powerful butt to the best of “evil”, poilite, with excellent sonorous blank and rings FUJI KR Concept titanium frames. With paristemi turntables 4 and 5, the Devon and large spinnerbaits them to work — a pleasure.

And another spinning reel I would like to mention in connection with this topic, although his appointment is limited primarily by the fishing microjy because of the special “slideway” of the tip (solid-tipped apex). Talking about TEAM SALMO Tioga test 732MF 1-8 while the focus of this rod, I’m on some take apart fishing jig lures still and box “turntables” from No. 1 and smaller, and also a homemade microbalance. The fact that Tioga allows to catch very small “turntables”, while the casting distance due to the soft glued the tip is phenomenal.

Now a little about the coils. Nothing special from the reel for fishing with spinners, we do not need. I note only that for catching on a strong current in the wiring “upstream” useful spinning reel with a high gear ratio, typically of the order of 6.2:1. At the same time, the increase in gear ratio leads to a decrease in the force characteristics of the coil. There is a certain dilemma of choice: either the slower but stronger, or faster, but “softer”.

Some kind of “Golden mean” can be a coil with a larger diameter spool, which increases the speed of the winding mechanism with the standard transmission in the range of 5:1. An example of such a coil SALMO Grand Confidence 9130FD with a gear ratio of 5.2:1 and a diameter of the spool 55 mm at 3,000.

A new coil made my low weight (245 g) packing cord. Both spools are small, while filling the Power cord Phantom 00,12 mm in the unwinding 120 m, the backing was not required, “braids” was missing under the “visor”. This cord was a perfect match not only for accurate winding on the spool, but its characteristics of strength and circular cross section (flat cords for fishing on turntables is better not to use).

The theme of the “fans” are too broad in the scope of a short article it does not fit. But do not strive to grasp the immensity, the main thing for us is to remember that baits with rotating blades do not put off for long time, they still work great, are extremely interested in fish, and catching them will be very, very interesting. If you make a good choice…
