    HELP - Old School - Bait ID needed!! - Spin jig???

    Always get good info from this site!!

    NEED HELP FINDING THESE ITEMS

    Back in the day (25+ years ago) there were several companies that made these. If my memory serves me right, they were called a "swim jig. It was basically a flippin jig with a flexible wire spinnerbait type blade attached to it. They came in a variety of colors and sizes.

    Stan Sloan at Zorro Baits use to make something called a "Switch Blade" that worked really well. It's been years since those have been made, but I'd sure like to get my hands on some of them.

    I've spent some time searching the internet to find something like these and have yet to find anything that will work. The small jig spinners that fit on a beetle spin are too small. I'd like to be able to put a size 6 or 7 blade on this thing.

    If you have any clue where I can find products similar to these, I'd deeply appreciate help in directing me to those folks!

    As always, thanks a bunch for your help!

    Thanks, but an underspin simply will not work for the application I'm using.

    Seems to me like "Lunker Lure" made an odd spinnerbait with a cable mounted Colorado blade, but also had a metal bill, sort of like a crankbait. They don't show them on TW, but do show plenty of other LL products, so they're still in business. They vibrated like an SOB.

    Stan Sloan is also still in business, AFAIK. Those "spinner attachments" are available in larger sizes from BPS/Cabela's and probably places like LureParts and Barlow's. They also vibrate like an SOB. I seem to recall having some trouble with them fouling on the line frequently, but a better hookup ratio than a typical spinnerbait.
    Don't bother me, I'm screwing for virginity.

    I killed a 12-pack just to watch it die.

    They were called drop jigs or flash jigs. Dick Horn with Hawg Hitter Baits made the first on the market, with 2 nylon coated cables ( V shape) and 1 blade per cable. Had a rattle on each cable. That was the first bait company that had rattles on spinnerbaits and jigs. Denny Brauer was trying to get Dick to sponsor him, but Dick couldn't afford him at the time. This was in the early 90s when Lunker Lure was Denny's only sponsor. Yeah, going back a few days. My guess is your dropping them down bluff walls? The Rattelin Twin Spin was a killer on KY lake in January and February on the North Bluff walls back in the day. . We sold thousands of them across the country in the 90s.
