War Eagle Wake Spinnerbaits
War Eagle Wake spinnerbaits are balanced to perfection and are ready to perform properly right out of the package. The Wake Bait is for BIG FISH, with a big Mustad needle point hook and heavier wire with a twist tie. The 3/8 oz. allows you to retrieve the spinnerbait real slow on top, and the 1/2 oz. allows you to reel a little faster. Both sizes are great for slow rolling also.
Cast the War Eagle Wake spinnerbait to your targeted area and retrieve just fast enough to create a "Wake" just below the surface without actually breaking the surface of the water. This presentation is a good pattern to use around submerged timber, rip-rap, fall-downs, vegetation, edge drops, docks, and just about any type of structure when the bass are active.

Comments: This spinnerbait has been crushing bass from 3.5-5 pounds for me since I got it two weeks ago, I highly recommend this product. I've caught two on it that were around a pound so small ones will go for it too. Cole Slaw is the color I have. I've just been slowly retrieving it about 2-3 feet deep & killing it & bass have destroyed it. It makes too much vibration for them to ignore! Just ordered a black one & I'm excited to see how that works

Comments: Great spinnerbait, use at least a medium heavy rod if you can and a reel that can handle bigger baits. Will catch small and large fish. I caught a 1 pounder and then a 5lber on back to back casts.

Comments: I was a little hesitant at first that the blades were too big for the average size bass I catch. I couldn't have been more wrong. I usually cast this parallel to rocky shorelines and slowly retrieve. I catch more bass in the 2 lb range that dart out of the rocks to grab this than other War Eagle spinnerbaits such as the double willows and finesse spinnerbaits. It really sends out the vibrations for the bass to pick up on. Bottom line, if there's a fish around, it will eat this.

Comments: Have used these recently on 2 different lakes in Wisconsin. Pike go crazy for these. Caught most of my fish on them. Order more than one!!!

Comments: I haven't used this version, but the style has been around a long time. If you need a slow, high in the water column presentation, this spinnerbait will do the job very well. The sound profile is like no other spinnerbait, plus the surface disturbance really adds something special. Try it early and late in the year when bass are holding close to cover form warmth. Great on summer mornings and evenings when it is steamy but the fish aren't aggressive. You might try removing one or two of the beads. The blades will clunk together, but you can have some problems if they jam. Anyway, this looks like a fine version of an old standby.
