The slow roll is just like it sounds. The bait is retrieved slowly so the blade and body more or less flutter along the bottom. In this case I am reeling in a bit faster to keep the bait moving a foot or so above the weed matte. Most folks think of the spinnerbait as a fast moving lure when in fact it is very successful bouncing across the bottom. When the weed matte is very thick I prefer to run it just above the weed line.
The color was white and black with silver and gold blades. Booyah Counter Strike in 3/8oz weight. I did not have to sexy this bait up with a grub combination or trailer hook. The skirt color, shiny blade and slow roll action brought a number of quality fish to the hand. This was a simple presentation that matched the day’s conditions very well. This is something I rarely pull off by the way. Usually I have to struggle and the way this year has been going…it is just good to see a few fish.
