New Hula spinners

42in Tiger Muskie caught on Hula Spinner yesterday

Stop by Fish Creek Spinners Web Store and checkout it's new format!

Got an email that a Yankin Jaw Guide Service client caught a nice fish on the Hula Spinner yesterday. The fish was 42 inches long and weighed 20lbs. It was released.

The lucky angler was sent a spinner for this picture, so I'm able to share it along with a few pictures of this new spinner design with anyone stopping by the blog or website.

Here's the fish. Looks like it was a beautiful day on the water. The fish took the spinner on his third cast into a promising spot.

Now for a few pictures of various colors of the new spinner. It weighs one ounce. The Hula comes from two double Colorado blades and a stacked silicon starflash skirt. When I showed it to Marie, spinning it from my hand, she said it looked like a hula dancer. No more need to think of a name, whew. Thanks Marie!

The double blades are on separate clevises with an integrated bearing bead for smoother spin. The skirt hides a 1 inch PVC riser that extends the #2/0 treble hook
toward the break in the skirt. This avoids the need for a stinger rig.

We have about 10 colors and either brass or nickel, hammered or smooth blade variations. We're using Colorado and Indiana blades #5's and #6's.

This one caught the fish.

Here's the brass cousin.

Few more colors, I like this one. Cream white, brown faceted glass with olive skirt and Brass Colorados.

Here's a purple and Smooth Brass Indiana version.

Last one, fluorescent Orange and hammered nickel

Just in time for a summer sales trips. Party on!
