Bassdozer's Style N Spinnerbaits for Slow Rolling

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 Colorado.

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 spinnerbait set-up.

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!
