The Dean of The Bass University, Pete Gluszek is on the water breaking down spinnerbait fishing during pre-spawn conditions. 

The Dean discusses the comeback of the spinnerbait, a bait that has been forgotten since the emergence of the chatterbait. Pete dives into different spinnerbait combinations, with blade selection and color selection. Spinnerbaits with painted blades are often overlooked, and The Dean shares a few instances were they can shine. Pete talks about his rod, reel, and line setup for the ultimate success with a spinnerbait.
