Spinnerbaits for Kicker Bass - Patrick Walters


Share On :

Patrick Walters has been fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series since 2019, and had a big win at the Toyota Texas Fest in 2020. In this 2021 Bass University fishing class seminar, Patrick talks about one of his favorite lures for putting kicker bass in the boat, a spinnerbait. Often overlooked by anglers in favor of the chatterbait, the spinnerbait is still a great versatilve bait for imitating baitfish and generating reaction strikes. In this video, Walters breaks down the spinnerbait components he uses (wire frame, blades, skirt colors, trailers and hooks) to assemble his favorite baits for different situations. He also shares the tackle he uses to fish his spinnerbaits (rods, reels & line). You can purchase all the tackle in this video from Tackle Warehouse.

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
