I saw a thread a few days ago and someone was saying they didn't see the point in having them. I think every spinnerbaits needs to have one. The spinnerbait is really nothing more than a reaction bait and I don't believe I'm the only one that thinks this. So it makes no sense not to have an additional hook to increase the hookup chance.

Trailer hooks have their place and time but they're not for every place and every time.

I only use a trailer hook when they're short striking... Spinnerbaits are so versatile and can be thrown in the thickest of the thick... Most are perfect out of the box in my opinion. Agreed though there is a time for a trailer hook.

Definitely like the idea behind trailer hooks. I use them on all my spinnerbaits.

But, if a fish wants it, the fish will get it. One day on Eagle Mountain a few years ago, my brother and I caught our limit of sandbass on nothing but spinnerbaits. Sandies have much smaller mouths than black bass. So like I said, if a fish wants it, they'll get it.

You're doing a nice job on the production but there is a plethora of very good basic bass fishing videos available to anyone. Some may find it useful but It's more like video noise so far. Maybe you can try something more interesting and cutting edge or humorous or maybe even retro.

I have an original idea for a video, have someone film you out fishing after the first beer, then edit and film after the 3rd, the 5th, 8th beer etc (include your narration while you fish),
be sure you have a designated driver....

to me, beer drinking and fishing kinda go together (not before 9AM for me though)
and if you're out back by your pool, you don't even have to worry about the designated driver.

You must be a Democrat. Just because someone has a different opinion or angle on a subject doesn't make them a hater. It seems that you are in love with and agreeable to most every post except for the ones that don't bring the love. It's a forum, thoughts can differ on any subject.
