BOOYAH Blade Spinnerbait - Tandem
I have fished Strike King spinnerbaits back when Charlie Spence owned the company so I am a big fan of SK. 2 weeks ago, my son outfished me 8 to one on a snow white Booyah. My Strike King was the same color, weight, blade size and had the same trailor. After fishing rocks all day for the smallies, his ( or should I say one of my ) Booyah had no chips in the paint and the wire was still in pretty good shape while my Strike King Premier Plus looked like it was hit by a bomb. Outstanding bait Booyah!!!

Spinnerbaits are one of my favorite ways to bass fish, and these are the best that I have used yet.

not very durable
There's no question that this bait catches a lot of fish. My only complaint is that this bait is not very durable. I've had the wire on two spinnerbaits break at the elbow within a period of two weeks.

I really like this spinner bait. My favorite color is the Chartruse and white with gold and silver blades. When the bite gets slow I tie on either a 3/8oz or 1/2oz. I'll vary my retreive depending on certain conditions. For example, if it's in the middle of the summer, and the water temps are high, leaving the bass in an inactive pattern, or holding in deep water or suspending off a drop, then I let it get deeper, retreive it slowly. In fact, I almost work it like a jerk bait. Pull, pause, reel up the slack--repeat all the way the back. A lot of times they hit it on the pause. However, if they're active, feeding in the shallows, I'll speed up my retreive to the point where the spinner bait is just about to break the surface.
Another retreive worthy of trying is the "Yo-Yo." Let it drop, pull it back up. Reel in the slack, and repeat (a good spring time retreive).
At night, or early in the morning before the sun dawns, I'll use a darker color pattern, then switch to something lighter like the chartruse and white as the sun comes up.
Something else worth giving a try is adding some kind of a trailer. A pork trailer, straight tailed worm, or even a creature bait, like a bass pro shops beaver bug.
I find that I get bigger bass to hit these, I haven't caught anything smaller then 3 or 4 pounds with this lure.
Give it try, be patient, and catch fish!
