The secret is out. These are not just for bass anymore. We have been casting the big spinnerbaits here on Lake McConaughy for years to take large walleye and hybrid stripers from the rocky points and the dam. With the recent drought cycles dropping the water level substantially, new growth has taken over the shoreline. Now that the water level has returned to a more historic level, the growth has been flooded, with 30′ to 40′ cottonwood trees totally submerged. We knew the fish were down in the trees, but getting to them was a challenge. The answer was the spinnerbait. With the bigger sizes we could get down through the branches with limited hang ups and the fish were generally very big. This method has stayed mostly here on Big Mac until most recently with some big tournament wins at Lake Oahe in South Dakota. These baits can be trolled on lead core using the 1 oz. size and the 2 oz. will get to 20+ feet down trolled on Fireline or Spiderwire.
