How many replace a spinnerbait skirt instead of buying a new spinnerbait? What are some good replacements? Thx

If you donโ€™t make your own replacements then the Boss replacement skirts have lots colors to choose from

I replace skirts all the time! Zman makes a great 3 pack. Bass pro has a whole rack of different ones depending upon what you like- silicone, rubber, quick change, rubber banded, etc.

I literally carry 20-25 different colored skirts while fishing to change up and fit certain situations or baitfish.

I build my own Living Rubber Skirts and sell them also. I order from 3 different companies to get the endless combinations of patterns and colors. No one company carries everything you need to build the best.
These consists of:
- Rolls of living rubber that can be cut at different lengths to accommodate a Spinner Bait, Jig or Chatter Bait.
- Spinner bait skirting, which I like the Fine strands.
- Jig Skirting, which I like the Old School flat strands.
- Chatter Bait skirting which is a combination of both.
- All my skirts come with a Copper Wire Tie, complimentary Trailer ordered from another company and instructions for hand tying. Skirts are banded if you like to change them out often.
- New Color patterns in living rubber are continuing to come forward. No glitter or shine, which I like as they are more realistic and mimic all pray the Bass are seeking.


Each person you work with holds some promise to your future success.

I keep a roll of floral wire in the boat. Takes about 60 seconds to wrap a piece of wire around it to keep the skirt in place after you change it.

I make my own
Very easy to do. I use a band/collar first, then wrap floral wire around in front of the band
Then just cut off the silicone collar if you want
