Do you use any type of trailer on your spinner baits? I never have but I was toying with the idea.

Zoom split tail trailers work for me on spinner baits and chatter baits

To slow the presentation down, get vibration and still be able to use a trailer hook, I go with a Zoom Fat Albert Twin Tail grub. Other than that, just a trailer hook.

I never have either. I didn't fish spinner baits much last year. I also was thinking of maybe using a trailer. either a super fluke jr or a fat albert grub.

The only type of trailer Ive ever used on a spinnerbait is a trailer hook... I've never messed around with putting trailers on a spinnerbait

Zoom Split Tail Trailer

I don't usually put a trailer on the back of my spinnerbait, except for when the water is muddy. And in that case, I use this! It's small but it definitely gives the fish something extra to hone in on. It's a nice little addition to any spinnerbait.

Missile Baits Twin Turbo

Eventually your spinnerbait (hopefully!) will have caught enough fish that the wire will get bent out of shape. Sometimes there's nothing you can do to make your bait run true again, even after the wire is bent back in the correct position. However, there are times when you can add a double tail grub to the back and keep it upright and from going to one side or the other. I like the Missile Twin Turbo the best. I just have a lot of confidence in it.
