Fish Head Spin Review
One of the things we find fascinating about fishing is how one man’s idea on fooling a fish spawns a whole new class of fishing lures. A lot of those ideas are just expansions of simple lead heads and plastic tails. Creations like the Chatterbait, the Alabama Rig, the Big O or the Senko spawned whole classes of lures and copy cats that sought to catch as many anglers and fish as the original.
One of those original ideas that seems to be a staple in clear-water anglers’ tackle boxes is the Fish Head Spin. This simple lead minnow head and hook with a small swivel and blade attached to it. Sought a better way to present minnow plastics to bass in deeper clear waters.
Similar to its smaller cousin the Road Runner, the Fish Head spin gives the angler a very life-like minnow head and subtle vibration and flash of a blade below a minnow shaped plastic, usually a soft plastic jerkbait or small swimbait. I’ve fished one for years, and a recent outing to Table Rock Lake reminded me how much I enjoyed fishing with these baits.
Here are some thoughts I had on the Sworming Hornet Fish Head Spin and why you might want to get a few for the tackle box.
