This Pro Prefers Spinnerbaits
During the autumn months when bass are still moving in tributary creeks feeding on shad, tournament angler Dave Wolak may only have one type of lure in his boat. It will be a 3/8-oz. pearl/white spinnerbait with double willow leaf blades and a white plastic trailer, a lure the Yamaha Pro has been using for years on waters throughout the United States.
"I honestly don't think a fisherman needs another lure this time of year," laughs Wolak, "because it's hard to find another lure that can be retrieved so many different ways but still looks like a shad no matter how you fish it."
