GALYAN's Spinner Baits

    Pharley Hook 'Em

    Bought a bunch of Galyan's bass spinner baits this summer, and have been going through them left and right. I guess on the good side, the hooks are pretty darn sharp. However, I have had 5 or 6 of the little rubber bands that hold the jig together break and snap within the past week. I may have to adjust a leading brand once in a while, but they rarely break until they look rough....many many fishing outings.

    I know, I know....what do I expect for a buck....I do expect more from Galyan's though, I regard their fishing line as quality.

  2. I have a few spinnerbaits like that as well. They are not Galyan's lures but rather some that have aged in my tackle. I was searching the other day in a couple of locals shops for replacement skirts but was unsuccessful. I know I bought some replacement skirts some time back. Does anybody know any shops locally that carry them?

    By the way Pharley, you are right that they should not come apart in the first season like that regardless of the price if they come from a reputable source.

    I've been using them for years without having this problem. Bring them in to me and we will replace them.

    I use the Galyans spinnerbaits when I want that type of presentation but in cover where it is likely I will snag up. I don't mind cutting off a $2 SB instead of a more expensive one. If they snag up, I cut the line and keep fishing the cover until I am satisfied I have covered every inch. Then I go back and retrieve the lures if possible.
