Crawler Haulers


Up until now our Walleye rigs with Mustad Slow Death hooks have all had propeller blades with clasp swivels, most with Glass Prism eyes.

Like this -

And some with double propellers like this with the swivel on front 4ft. leader -

Guys were requesting other non-prop blades and although I've got plenty on trout spinners, I had not built any for walleyes.

Recently, I've made time to start planning next seasons course corrections. One was to build more walleye choices and address that request for some crawler rigs with different blades.

Looking at my current blade inventory, I came up with two models - an ultralite 1/20oz version and a 1/10oz with slightly bigger blades.

Blade choices include - Inline's, Indiana's, Colorado's, Swing's, Small Prop's and of course small June Bugs!

These are all shown with Mustad Slow Death Crawler hooks (SDCH), but both versions offer blade and hook substitutions for online shoppers - 'Build a Spinner' for walleye!

All are packaged with a 4ft 20# mono leader. The blades and bodies are strung on stainless wire, not strung on the mono line. That means tying a few more knots.

All knots are 7 wrap modified cinch knots. To keep them lighter, I used .021 stainless and 35# crane or barrel swivels without clasps.

Here's a few pictures  of the 1/20oz and #1 blades -
