How to Custom Build Your Own Spinnerbaits

Building your own lures is a great time and it allows for significant cost savings (see below) AND giving you something unique that fish may not be conditioned to. This video walks through how to assemble a decked-out tandem spinnerbait from start to finish. Here are some approximate cost comparisons: A basic, single-bladed spinnerbait can be made for roughly $1.75 while they routinely retail at $4.00. A top-of-the-line tandem spinnerbait can be made for roughly $3.50, while many of them retail for more than $8.00.
