Bassdozer's Style N Spinnerbaits for Slow
You are going to do best slow-rolling in mid-depths whenever
you see bait schools on the graph. Often the bait schools will
appear flattened down against the bottom - more like long lines
of bait strung out along the bottom - at the depth you desire to
slow roll. These could be shad or pelagics (minnows, shiners,
etc.) but may also be bait-sized panfish (sunfish, perch,
crappie, etc.) or young-of-year fish of whatever species. They
may be feeding on some sort of concentration, migration, hatch or
bloom of minute bottom life. Often, the baitfish you graph may be
lined up in bands at a certain specific depth. For example, you
may troll around and watch the depthfinder between 15 to 20 feet
deep, but only mark the bait schools close to bottom in a narrow
band at 18 feet deep, with little or no bait marked at any depth
in between 15 foot to 20 foot mark, only a concentrated band of
bait at 18 feet (for example). These "bands of bait"
are some of the best situations to slow roll spinnerbaits deep.
Single Colorado Slow Rollers
The single Colorado is the classic slow-roller set-up. There
are regions across the country where local anglers would not
think to slow-roll with any other blade set-up except the single
The single Colorado can be slow-rolled at any depth, but is
particularly beneficial to slow roll relatively shallow from 0 to
10 feet deep.
Maximum Action and Vibration Blade. The Style N spinnerbait
you see here is powered by the biggest, maximum action and
vibration blade it will possibly support. The blade will not
cause excessive torque or unbalance the spinnerbait, so it will
operate straight (provided the wire arm is kept tuned and aligned
properly. At the same time, it will have the maximum action
possible for this Style N spinnerbait. It displays a humpy, jumpy
and hard-shaking type action when slow-rolled. Please enjoy!
The single Colorado blade used to power this spinnerbait has as
much or more vibration than many crankbaits.

Colorado/Willow Slow Rollers
If you are slow-rolling in relatively open water where you can
make a good cast and cover a good stretch of bottom, I tend to
favor the 1/2 oz Style N spinnerbait with the blade set-up you
see here. In particular, the Willow gets a little
"lazy" in this set-up and it does not spin so hard
behind the Colorado shown. So the Willow doesn't make as much
lift as usual, so this set-up tends to stay down deep a little
better than usual.
This slow rolls best at or around the 18-20-22 foot mark. I
often read or hear that heavier 3/4 to 1 oz spinnerbaits are
better-suited to such depths. However, this 1/2 oz Style N set-up
will stay down at the 18'-22' depth all day long (provided you
can make a lengthy cast with it and slow-roll it back to the
boat. I catch an awful lot of fish at this depth range on this
Slow rolling the 1/2 oz Style N set-up you see here is a good
deal for me.
I don't know exactly what it is about this set-up that makes
it slow roll that depth so well, but it does.
Of course you can use it for casting shallow, fishing up near
the surface or any other way you'd use a spinnerbait. It's not
just for slow-rolling - but truly excels in every way you use a
spinnerbait. Please enjoy!
