Several years ago I always tied on a little George anytime I went to a lake with sand bass in it. The Little George was my go to lure. It always ran true and worked like it was designed to work. Now days I can't buy one that works! I'm pretty frustrated with them. The last dozen or so I have bought twirl around in circles. They are supposed to hold true and straight and the spinner is supposed to spin. What is the deal with Little George's these days? Is there another brand of this type of spinner that actually works? Is this another example of [censored] being made in some foreign country with zero quality control? Anyone else had Little George issues?

Sorry for the rant but I absolutely hate buying something new and it don't work right out of the box.

Get rid of the little George and start using gay blade type lures! I was having the same issues! Gay blades are my go to lures! Sandbass, blackbass, drum, catfish, specks, redfish, lady fish, smacks, small sharks have gotten their lips ripped with this lure! Very versitle lure! You can get different styles and colors at Walmart to cabelas

I really like the Humdinger but I've been having problems with my line twisting around the tail end before the blade when casting and retrieving. Should I add a swivel or any other recommendations to correct this?

I had the same exact problem this past weekend on Ray Roberts. A lure that so simple should always work. Especially since they've worked excellent for years and years, why now do the new ones suck? I bought 3 new ones and non ran right. Finally got one to act right after some tweaking though.

OU Sooner....I found if you add a snap or a snap swivel to the humdinger it helps to keep this from happening..my grandson and I found schooling sand bass the other day and the humdinger was great to cast out and reach the school...catching one on almost every cast for over an hour...I had never tried them before but found them at Anglers Pro Tackle...my grandson also caught a couple of nice largemouth bass using the humdinger as well..sold me on them so I got online and got the whole assortment..great lures and not expensive.

Just throw a simple fake shad about 1-2 inch length.

Just rigged rods with M T Pockets/Streetwalker's Georges, they work, for tomorrow's trip, white and chartreuse. Turned into my #1 lure. Sure hope the wind lays as forecasted.

also if you are throwing it with a spinning rig try slowing the line with your hand. I just reach up and kind of make an "O" with my fingers when it is about to hit the water. kind of like thumb braking with a baitcaster. solved those probs 99%
