Our very own Pete "The Dean" Gluszek was in Florida to share his years of knowledge fishing spinnerbaits. In this digitally remastered bass fishing educational video seminar, Pete shares tips to get your started selecting the right spinnerbaits for the right situations (or changing out the right blades or other components), teaches you how to fish a spinnerbait (with bonus tips for Florida lakes) and and the best conditions for fishing a spinnerbait.

While some anglers may have forgotten them in recent years, the spinnerbait is still an excellent versatile option for catching bass. Whether it’s burning a double-willowleaf, or slow-rolling a big single colorado blade, bass still react to these baitfish imitators. In this seminar, Pete Gluzsek shares some of his personal favorite spinnerbaits and a few tips to help increase your catches with this classic bait.
