Keys to Spinnerbait Success - Mike Iaconelli : Remastered

We have fully remastered Mike Iaconelli's spinnerbait bass fishing seminar class video from Harrisburg, PA. In this 52-minute video, Iaconelli breaks down what a spinnerbait is and why, even though it's a classic, it's still a great modern lure with loads of flexibility to catch bass in various conditions. Iaconelli goes in to break down the components and configuration of a spinnerbait and in what circumstances you want to use: different blades, various colors, lighter/heavier weights, shorter/thinner wire and more. Once you have your spinnerbait selected, Mike has 5 fish-catching retrieves that will put fish in the boat. Sure, chunk'n'wind is one of those retrieves, but it's certainly not the only one. Lastly, Mike Iaconelli talks about the tackle he uses to fish spinnerbaits, which you can buy at Tackle Warehouse.
