Chosen Answer:

This it the story of the Biggest fish I have ever caught on one of the the mentioned spinners.

Setting: I’m 14 years old at my Grandfathers cabin on Big Lake one hour outside of Anchorage Alaska.

Well it is summer time up here and there is no getting up at the break of dawn for the morning feeding of fish. It never really gets dark up here in the summer months more like dusk and then the sun starts to come up again. So I head out about 6am and it is already bright out and the sun is already up over the horizon. I get in the boat and head over to nice cove where water from the lake discharges into a stream and start throwing a white body rooster tail with a silver blade out into the cove hooking some nice rainbows almost every third or fourth cast for about 20 to 30 min and it starts to slow down. So I decide to try another spinner and pull out my Mepps #0 and swap it out with the rooster tail. I Cast back out into the cove again and BAM where back in action nailing 16 – 20 inch rainbows every few casts. Then again it starts to slow down and bites farther and farther apart. Well a lure swap worked last time lets see if it will work again so I decide to put on the all chrome Blue Fox #1 and fire another cast out into the cove. Yet again I hook into another nice rainbow feeling like I have walked into a sort of fishing Heaven with a grin that had to be from ear to ear I continue to fish the Blue fox for another 30 to 40 min when started to slow down again. This time I decide to put on the yellow with red spots Panther Martin. I cast my line back into the cove, the spinner hits the water and I start my nice smooth retrieve letting the lure stay down deep feeling the slight vibration of the spinner and then WHAM the quick heart stopping jerk of a monster hit. I jerk back on the rod setting the hook and line starts screaming off my reel and I realize I have just hooked into one hell of a fish. It charged all the way down to the end of the chanel made a U turn and raced towards me. As my line fell slack my heart dropped as I raced to the front of the boat Reeling as fast as i could to pick up the slack in the line. Close and closer i see the line coming in and then I pause for just a second and watch the line where it meets the water. Movement ! The line starts to make a V in the surface as the fish pulls the last of the slack out of the line and heads for deeper water i lean back and put the pressure of the rod back on him. Bam he takes of in another explosive run all I can do is keep my rod straight up in the air and put some finger pressure on the spool as this lunker strips line off my reel. Back and forth we go for what had to be a good 20 to 30 min. He is getting tired and I know it so I put the pressure on lean back then reel in lean back then real in again and again and he is coming in. He in not far of now I almost have you I think to my self and then it happens. He gives a monstrous tug and bends his entire body as he snaps his head the opposite direction he is being pulled causing me to bend forward drop the rod tip some and then I see him a bright two and a half foot flash of sliver kicking back and forth trying to spit that hook. My heart soars as I slowly pull him up from the deep water and get my net handy. Then as I hold my rod in one hand I get the net ready in the other. As he comes up and breaks the top of the water I make a hail mary shot at him with the net and I get him. I lift up and pull in a monster rainbow that had to be at least 36 inches and 15 pounds. It was one of the best summers of my life me and the wild waters of Alaska.

  1. With a silver Rooster Tail spinner with a black tail, I have caught numerous trout in the Deschutes river and the Yellowstone river. I tried it on smallmouth bass the last few summers and was quite successful there, too, and even caught a couple of perch and crappie. This is the surprising part, though. While just casting for anything that might hit, I caught a coho salmon one recent October in a local river usually known for panfish. I had to release the salmon since it was not a hatchery fish, but it was a great experience. I have had a few good experiences with a Blue Fox spinner, and caught some trout in Germany with Mepps spinners, but have done the best with the Rooster Tail.

  2. When I was like 10 years old, I saw bunches of small bass blowing up on the surface going after shad or some kind of bait fish. I look in my tackle box and dig through the junk my grandfather gave me for the day and pull out a shiny chrome Worden’s Rooster Tail. I tie on this 1/4 ounce trout spinner, look at it and think to myself what would happen if i cast this into a school of bass while they’re on the surface. I put 2 and 2 together and give it a shot. Nothing. I see them busting the top over there, run, total miss. I see them blowing up over here, run, miss. Then as I start to walk back toward the campsite, I hear them blowing up right behind me about 20 feet out. I throw the spinner out and start cranking. Within a matter of secods, I have a bass on! Yay! I set the hook and fight this bass. The line is peeling off my little spinning reel and I try to tighten the drag. I fiddle with it for a couple minutes and get it in. A nice, big, fat, plump, and juicy bass. I haul the heavy thing up the hill to the campsite and my family starts going nuts! one of my uncles takes it from me and weighs it on his fish scale. 9lbs, 6oz!!!!!!

  3. Mepps, Rooster Tail, and Blue Fox are my favorite and all work well i like fishing spinners for trout a lot but they work for bass too but i prefer spinnerbaits for bass.

  4. Don’t really have a’ story for ya’ but, in my fishin’ constitution both the “Uncle Martin” aka Panther Martin, along with Blue Fox in my opinion are the better of the four <);-3

    Note: Responses to your question will vary but again, these are my personal favs ~ have been for YEARS and have produced a wide variety of freshwater species ie., Trout, Salmon, Bass (small and largemouth), crappie, etc…
