Spinnerbaits for Bass: 8 Choices That Always Seem to Catch Them

These are some of the best spinnerbaits for bass on the market today.

Bass fishermen have a plethora of options to consider when it comes to fishing lure selection: Crankbaits, buzzbaits, topwaters, jigs and soft plastics to name a few.

But in our mind, bass fishing is almost always better with spinnerbaits.

Here are eight of our favorite fishing spinnerbaits to add to your tackle box. These will help you boat more and larger smallmouth and largemouth bass more often.

Booyah Pond Magic

Cabela's

I've always been a fan of smaller lures. They're underrated for larger fish. The 3/16-ounce Booyah Pond Magic shows that good things come in small packages.

This lure comes in six color choices that help you match local baitfish. It features Colorado and willow blades to help draw in fish.

War Eagle Screamin' Double Willow

This Screamin' Double Willow lure has nothing but four and five-star reviews on Cabela's website. It's a great-looking bait in a 1/2-ounce size that seems tailor-made for catching big bass.

The double willow-leaf blades are sure to create a ton of vibration fish will easily detect with their lateral line. This will entice strikes and you'll catch fish more often.

Strike King Premier Plus Colorado/Willow Spinnerbait

We've been using Strike King spinnerbaits to catch bass for years and we doubt we'll stop anytime soon. One of the largest bass I ever caught came on a Strike King. The Premier Plus is another highly-rated bait on Cabela's. This one is available in ¼ and 3/8-ounce sizes.

We recommend the chartreuse/white to imitate a small bluegill or bream and the bleeding shad and sexy shad colors to imitate other types of baitfish bass love. These come pre-rigged with a trailer hook for those swiping strikes.

Bass Pro Shops Lazer Eye Tandem

Fishing lures are expensive. With many lure manufacturers charging $7-9 a lure for some spinnerbaits now, we appreciate Bass Pro Shops offering a budget option at $5.29 each. The Lazer Eye features Eagle Claw hooks and "Lazer Eyes" to add a bit more of a life-like appearance to them. These lures get high reviews from users for how well they catch big bass.

Northland Reed-Runner

Cabela's

This is another budget bass lure at a great price of $2.99-3.99 each. The Reed-Runner is available in sizes 1/2, 3/8 and 1/4 ounces. A combination of willow leaf and Colorado blades provide an appropriate amount of flash and noise to these lures.

These spinnerbaits come with different blade finishes varying from a flashy nickel to painted blades appropriate for muddy waters.

Terminator S-1 Super Stainless

Cabela's

I've personally been using Terminator spinnerbaits for years and the action and durability have always been great. Terminator spinnerbait blades deliver great flash and vibration. They work in both shallow water and deeper water. Terminators work wonderful in a variety of situations and you can bet when you do get a bite, it's usually going to be a big one on the end of your line.

Booyah Counter Strike

Cabela's

We already mentioned the Pond Magic bait, but there are plenty of other Booyah spinnerbaits that are great for bass. The Counter Strike is another one of those. These are available in a variety of colors and blade finishes. Just about all of them will catch bass in different situations. The 3D eyes, scale pattern and red gills really help sell the illusion of a wounded baitfish.

Strike King KVD Tandem Willow

Cabela's

It's safe to say Kevin VanDam, the multi-time Bassmaster Classic and Angler of the Year Champion knows his spinnerbaits. He's said multiple times how they're his favorite lure. KVD's Tandem Willow has 117 five-star reviews on the Cabela's website. This lure just works. This one is available in 3/8 and ¾ ounce sizes and five color schemes sure to catch big bass.
