Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads - Pro Series Spider
Spider Slider Heads
My go-to jig head every spring when the water is rising on The Mississippi River. The walleyes move shallow, generally around rip-rap banks, and if you throw in some laydowns and bushes, better yet. I use the lightest heads that will give me a natural down current drift, and rig up either a tube or a 4" ringworm and cast upstream of my target and let the current wash my offering over and into the cover. Whether it's rip-rap, or bushes, or logs, anything that can provide a break in the current and cover for the fish is what you want. Just rig it up Texas style and allow it to drift into and over the junk, and the walleyes will engulf it. Guys think I'm bass fishing, but the walleyes are tucked in there and they are hungry. After they spawn, I'll use the same technique for pre-spawn largemouths and smallmouths. The key is getting the proper down current drift, and these light heads give it to you. My favorite jigheads for shallow, early season walleyes on The Mississippi River.

I have been using Charlie Brewer Sliders for more than 4 years. Great product. I do a great deal of Walleye and Bass fishing. The Sliders work very well with plastic worms as they do with 4" Grubs casting. An extremely versatile jig head.

Great for working grass flats and potholes
This is without a doubt my favorite jig head. It works so well with Gulp 3” shrimp and D.O.A. 3” shad tails that you would think it was designed for them. When I lived in Illinois I used the regular slider hooks, fishing the rivers for smallies and walleye. The best thing about them was that they didn’t get snagged in the rocks like other jig heads would.
Now that I live in Florida I’m so happy that Charlie Brewer came out with the pro series because the regular Slider hooks were not strong enough for Redfish, trout, and snook. The pro Series is strong enough, doesn’t rust or corrode in saltwater, and is fairly weedless. Even when working around floating grass.
Couldn’t be happier with this product.

Ive been using slider hooks for finesse fishing with worms for as long as I can remember. They work just as good, actually even better then a bullet weight and a plain hook. My only trouble is when this product was shipped to my home, all the hooks were out of the plastic package, then I called and BPS sent more, and they were still out of the package. A great product nonetheless though!
