  • Ohio spinnerbait fishingGFO Library: Spinning Magic on Ohio Lakes Everywhere!

    Do you have a "go to" lure? That one you tie on because you KNOW you can catch fish on it? Every summer, I seem to find a "magic" lure - one that finds the fish no matter what. This year, it is one of my 'ole favorites: a spinnerbait. Ohio spinnerbait fishing is a BLAST!

    I've always loved spinnerbait fishing for bass. Blades thumping and flashing, tail fluttering, it just lures fish right in. Boy, do they SLAM it, too! This year, Ohio waters haven't disappointed. I have caught fish with THE SAME spinnerbait (albeit with many trailer changes) all summer long.
