THIS LURE IS GREAT BECAUSE MOST OF THE TIME, IT CATCHES FISH! REALLY. BUY THE #2 ONLY!!!I WAS ON MY PONTOON BOAT WITH MY BROTHER IN LAW AND HIS 2 SONS (9 AND 11) IN CENTRAL MICHIGAN ON A 450 ACRE LAKE KNOWN FOR BASS AND NORTHERN. NEITHER ONE OF THE CHILDREN HAVE EVER FISHED BEFORE WITH SPINNING BAIT. ALL OF US WERE FISHING WITH DIFFERENT ITEMS. I WAS THE ONLY ONE CATCHING USING THE BLUE FOX. WITHING AN HOUR, EVERYONE PUT ONE OF THESE LURES ON AND EACH PERSONLANDED AT LEAST 3-4 NICE FISH.

rust rust rust
i bought a few size 3 spinners to use for trout, i caught lots of fish with it. I was very impressed till the next morrning, when i was looking through my tackle box and dicovered that the treble hook and the gear inside the spinner started to rust!!! I think that everything that is going to be in the water should be made to a matirial that will not rust, including these spinners!

I used the Blue Fox Vibrax Spinners the last time I fished in Alaska for Silver and Pink Salmon. These lures worked great and I will be using them again in August to fish for Silver's and Pinks.

I have been using this for a while and it never lets me down. When nothing else is getting hit, i will throw this in and catch something. Great for bass, but will catch any fish...I caught a blue catfish with it once!

I fish where a stream enters into a river. I fish there regularly using blue foxes. Today I went and a guy was just slaying them. I couldn't catch nothing. He was using blue foxes and I was too. He caught a 22 inch rainbow. So how do I retrieve them and where should I cast? What colors are good too? Any answer would help. Thanks!
The way I fish the blue fox vibrex spinner in a stream or a river, is I look for structure, like a big boulder, a fallen tree, a spot with a pool. Look at the way the flow of water is going! And look for structure in those areas. Trout will use theses places as an ambush site for bait fish,worms or any kind of food that the current will bring there way. That way they don't have to waist a lot of energy chasing down food! And also pools will hold fish because the water will be deeper there and also cooler, and as well a spot to get food that flows by or swims above them! As for using the spinners, vary your retrieve from fast to slow, follow the shore line, fish the edge of the chanal, around any spot where fish may hold! Also trout like to hide in undercut banks. As for colors, if it's sunny use gold, silver, bright colors, if it's cloudy use reds, oranges, chartreuse colors. Also a technique that I like to use is fan casting, start from your left side and work your way across to your right side forming a fan pattern in the area your fishing! But most of all look for structure, trees overhanging the bank, along logs and so forth! Hope this helps?
My dad caught a fish throwing the lure into the current, letting it drop and had the line fall out, when he picked it back up there was a fish on. But I've also caught fish just reeling in. If you want rainbow you've got to do it in the current, at least that'd how i catch most of my fish. Behind rocks and log, or where the ripples on the surface look like they end, but let the bait drift into that area.
I usualy have three sizes of the blue fox,panther martins,as well as mepps extra deep, and mepps aglia bright! The sizes would be from 3/32 to 1/4 oz. As for colors, silver,gold, red, pink, yellow! Cover all the basses and you should be successful!
I'd start out with gold. It works good for me, but I'd also have a bunch of other colores in your tackle box. Sometimes bass just perfer a specific color or a specific color just seems to work well in one pond or lake over all others. Take for instence a farm pond in Missouri that I fish... the bass love pink??? I don't know why, but I tried it and found this color to be the best... so don't get stuck on one color and try figure out which one works the best for the H2O you fish.
They are very good for panfish and bass, so I have found. I have used the #1, #2, and #3 spinners in all colors. If i had to buy just one, it would be the #2 in silver. That seems to catch the most fish for me. As soon as the lure hits the water, give it a quick jerk, this will get the spinner going, then just slow down and wait for the bite. The only downside is the trebble hook, you will tend to loose a few when fishing structure.
