where are you fishing? when I'm up smallmouth fishing, I can get away with a spinning rod 80% of the time. for fishing topwaters, jerkbaits, crankbaits, tube jigs, drop shots, jigs, etc.

when I'm fishing largemouth in the south? drop shot, shakey head, poppers, and certaing jerkbaits and flat sided cranbaits like shad raps.

if there isn't much cover, I'm more prone to use my spinning setups.

I'm in Texas and mainly target largemouth. I use spinning for top water and square bill, but trying decide if u can use a swim bait on spinning.

I guess I'm not sure why you'd want to, I use spinning rods for light light, and light lure applications.

So, finesse approaches, or light line in clear water.

I wouldn't throw a square bill or most swimbaits on spinning tackle.

Any bait that is too light to throw on a baitcast, I'll throw on a spinning setup. Small cranks, small top waters, small swimbaits, jerkbaits, and finesse baits(drop shot, shakeyhead, tubes)

I would throw a banjo minnow, but definetly not the helicopter lure on spinning gear.

I have 2 bait casters and 4 spinning rods. Trying to figure out how I want to rig each. Currently I use a t - rig and spinner bait on my bait casters.

Most of them are 7 foot medium or medium heavy rods. I may switch the t-rig over to a spinning to free up a bait caster.

I used a spinning set up for everything for a long time. Texas rig, spinnerbait, crankbait, didnt matter. I caught some very big fish on it and I could put it wherever I wanted. May not have been the best tool for the job but it definitely worked. If you are more comfortable with a spinning setup than a baitcaster then go for it. Its about having fun.
