War Eagle Mike McClelland Finesse Spinnerbaits
The War Eagle Finesse Spinnerbait was designed by pro angler Mike McCelland to catch a quick limit of fish. The compact size of the Finesse Spinnerbait will generate those extra bites during tough fishing conditions. The Finesse Spinnerbait features a dual length Bass Eagle pro series skirt, Mustad Ultra Power Point hook, and Sampo swivels. All these quality components is the reason why War Eagle is one of the most productive spinnerbaits on the market.
Mike McClelland finished 4th in the 2009 Bassmaster Classic while fishing the 3/8-ounce War Eagle Finesse Spinnerbait.

Comments: I am a big fan of WE spinnerbaits because they catch good numbers. The quality isn't bad but the nothing special. The lead is not particularly dense & the wire and head will loosen over time. Also I could care less about cosmetics but the paint doesnt hold up. With all of this said however this bait, the T1 and the WE double willow are the only spinnerbaits I buy anymore simply due to performance of the bait.

Comments: In windy conditions I used Shimmer Blue with a white little dipper trailer in and around emergent grass. They didn't just hit it. They engulfed it. Every fish had it way down their throat. Swims beautifully and looks realistic with and without the trailer. Held up well after many fish.

Comments: I've used the War Eagle Finesse spinnerbait for the last 2 seasons. I can say, with 100% confidence, that is a perfect spinnerbait. The size may be small, but it casts easily and far, has a big profile thanks to the elaborate skirt, and the fish here just love it.

Comments: I've been using Mike McClelland's finesse spinner baits for around 2 years now and have caught bass, snakeheads and crappie of all sizes. I have them in both Mouse & Pond Scum Perch and they've become a go-to lure.

Comments: I've used these for an entire summer, now I'm ready to review! Simply put, I always have one tied on, smallies kill em, largemouth love em as well. These are by far a confidence bait, always catch fish on them. Great colour selection to boot...

Comments: I have fished spinnerbaits for over 20 yrs and find this finesse spinnerbait to the best I have used. I fish small lakes and ponds from a float tube and I have had great success with the Pond Scum Perch and the Sun Perch. I fish these baits on a Kisler light Carbon Steel rod with a Lews Pro Speed 6.4:1 reel, spooled with 30# TUF Line SuperCast Braid. Recently caught and released 9 large mouth bass with 8 in the 4# range which is great for a small lake in south central Idaho.

Comments: By far the best spinnerbait on the market. Smallies kill them on the Susquehanna.

Comments: Fished one these puppies yesterday for the first time and let me just say WOW! I caught 9 bass total on a pressured lake, the biggest was 3.8 pounds. I have fished a lot of different spinner baits but these are a must have in the tackle box. Slow roll them in shallow water along the banks and hang on! Awesome product! Will be buying more!

Comments: This spinnerbait has caught me many fish. War Eagle spinners are my favorite brand to use. As a previous person commented they can bend out of shape but are very easily bent back to work like new. Slow roll this puppy through the right channels of good type of weeds and you'll get some nice fish usually. I also like Revenge spinners and have caught several fish on those too. Nothin like a spinnerbait strike! Good fishing all.

Comments: Well this spinnerbat is pretty much the best one I've ever used! Fished it while my buddy fished a plastic worm and caught more than him. Haha. But this bait is made to catch fish, not fishermen. It comes through all kinds of cover......including trees on the banks. Bends pretty bad but is easy to bend back and the skirt and hooks are top notch. I like the amount of flash from the blades. The jighead is also very shiny. It casts a mile and runs good. Will buy more!
