    What color spinnerbaits, specifically Reeb's, work best for spottie fishing in Newport Harbor?

    Chartreuse and white is really the only spinnerbait for bay bass your ever gonna need to own, doesn't matter where your fishing

    X3 on the chartreuse white. I use the bladerunner spinnerbaits in chartreuse white and perch colors (both are very similar) with chartreuse white being the most effective one. I fish the in San Diego Bay and even though they don't get numbers since they are quite large compared to a swimbait, they always give two or three BIG spotties everytime I go. Plus, they are really fun to fish with. Also consider the new warbaits spinnerblades. I haven't tried them yet but I am very optimistic about them.

    Again you can't go wrong with chartreuse + white.

    Tight lines!

    It may just be me but I threw the blade for a good part of the day in newport yesterday. not even a blade bite. what could I be doing wrong?

    the jig bite was insane though.

    I really like the Bass Majik SuperPro BombTosser™ spinner baits. They are made with 1/2" wire so they are super durable! The key to fishing spinner baits is that they only get bit on the fall. My favorite way is to fish them vertically on docks. I would defintley not fish them in the eel grass because they get gummed up. I only fish from the tube :2gunsfiring_v1: (SuperSlayer Pro Series 1250™), so you might be fishing them different. I pitch the the BombTosser™ right against the dock pilings in close. Pay attention! You WILL get bit on the fall so watch your line! I've caught tons on toad SPOTS doing this. I even caught a 3.5 pounder that measured 16"!! My favorite colors are MajikSmelt™ and HeatedBaguette™. I also recommend you fish light line and at least a 1 oz spinner bait. You want it to fall really fast so that you can get a reaction bite. One also would be wise to SMOOTHER them in Bass Majik's HotButter™ scent. Go get em!

    Been whackin the crap outta the spotties on the blades the last few months. There are many methods and colors. Since I mainly fish from shore I use a 1/4 oz bait ($2.00 bargains) and straight wind. Also, please ignore the eel grass on my blades.:rofl:

    I'd have to disagree. Most of my fish come on a slow wind and the spinner bait is excellent for fishing over the top of the eel grass! far more weedless than swimbaits etc. And A 16" spotty does not weigh 3.5 pounds :finger: I'd recommend 1-1.5 oz chart/white in whatever brand you feel most confident using

    Or the doo doo left on your pants...spottie dropped a bomb on you:rofl:

    on my usual bay ....shhhhhh...... fire tiger worked for me, I was buggin out the other night when my usual warheads and plastics didn't work, hard baits didn't either so when I popped the spinner, it was a mad house with spotties, impressed with the colors because normally I stick to darks at night so changing it up made a huge difference....and yes, Newport has been difficult lately, even in the hard to reach docks theres nothing under there, what gives?

    I would definitely argue you on this point but I won't.

    I just picked up one of these spinner baits at the Reebs booth at the pacific coast sportfishing event yesterday. I picked up a 1 oz. is this too heavy for the harbor for spotties?
