For 3/8th I usually go with a 4.5 Willow/Indiana and a 2 or 2.5 Colorado...

In his video he mentions using a 3/4oz head with a #7 indiana blade. For the 3/8oz try a #2 (maybe 3) colorado and a size 6 indiana.

Indianna blades are oval shaped for less water resistance than a Colorado and more the a willow so the spinner bait will run deeper with less head weight and speed; 3/8 oz a size 4 Indianna is often used with a size 2 Colorado for a slower retrieve for 3'-5' depth range.

Here's a chart that I got from Stamina a few years ago. It is printed in their yearly catalog.
