I consider myself a spinner bait guy. Thought for years that it was the best way to catch a bass. Started throwing hollow bellies a couple of years ago and now can't put them down. I use the 5 inch all year round now, from the bank to 25 feet. Just a matter of finding the right cadence.
A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
