Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads - Pro Series Spider
Great In the river
Used these in the river to catch the years first smallies. Kept snagging up with tubs even when rigged weedless so I put one of these on with a 4" curly tail and never got snagged again. Caught 2 nice smallies out of the hole I had been working.

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.

A Finesse Staple
This is the Slider head that makes finesse fishing a great technique for any large fish, even 5 lbs. and over. It has sturdy wire that won't straigthen out when the big one loads on (avoid the light wire Slider head unless you don't care about losing anything over a pound).
This hook is sharp and the head really does slide through most cover. It works great with any 4" worm, Slider or otherwise, straight or curly tail. I like the 1/16 size normally, or 1/8 when the wind is up.
A Slider worm on a light Slider head is also a great search bait technique to probe cover until you find where the big guys are holding.

Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads-Pro Series spider
I have used these slider heads for bass fishing and with light line and have done very well with these. I normally use 4 inch soft bait's , but recently started to use 6 inch baits on these heads and have just as well. I've never had my hook straighten out as of yet knock on wood because have caught quite a few 3 1/2 to 5lb on these heads. You just have to treat these head as you would with light line and thin hooks, I use these on spinning tackle most of the time and like I said I really love these slider heads due to the way you use them(nice&slow). I know a lot of people say you can't bass fish with these slider heads but guess what you can and it's fun. Try'em out for your self. Also use nanfil line it's great..
