Mini June Bug singles

Here's another alternative to consider.

The 1/8oz June Bugs were a hit so I decided to rachet down a click, using a #7 blade vs the #6's on the 1/8oz version.

A 1/18oz little brother to the 1/8oz. Ultralite for small streams and bank fishing bluegills.

To reduce weight, I went down to 8MM tail beads as well, then used a # 6 offset steelhead single hook.

These still have the slip R bend tail loop for hook substitutions and are available with dressed zonker banded singles, zonker banded #10 trebles, weedless, single or treble hooks.

Strung on the stainless for two points of blade rotation, these also provide that interesting fixed angle strobe and can be retrieved at ultra slow speed while still flashing at slow speed.

The dressed zonker banded hooks add interesting color choices and a fluid fish attracting bait when wet, that can even be scented.

Nice alternative spinner.

Here's a few pictures.

Normally I shy away from throwing spinners from the bank due to the hang ups. I decided to throw the original June Bug from the bank - betting that because of it's incredibly slow sink rate I could more easily impart some action without getting hung up.

Well...it worked. After an hour of using other lures and no bites, I threw the June Bug in and Wham, Wham, Wham...I started to get hit after hit until I finally landed a Largemouth.

Another June Bug score!!!
