I see things like "burning buzzbaits" and "burning spinnerbaits" all the time. How fast, exactly, are you cranking your reel to make it burn? As fast as you can?

Yes! As fast as you can possibly go while keeping it in the water and/or over the tops of the weeds your fishing on. It is easier though to switch to a higher gear ratio instead of just cranking on your old 4.1:1 shimano

Huh. Good to know. I've never come close to cranking that hard. But then again, I don't use spinners much. I'll give it a try next time out on a hot day. Thanks.

Hey Fishcat...

Hey Man, Just another thought on that burning of spinnerbaits idea..both inline and safety pin style. The blades on the bait will make a substantial difference in the top end speed you can crank at. Of course the willow leaf and thin style blades can be cranked much faster while Colorado and more round/oval blades will have to be cranked a bit slower.

It may not make a difference on any given day... however, there are those days when speed is the trigger that gets the fish to actually commit to the bait. On those days it sometimes translates into several more bites if you go to the willow leaf style and can therefore increase the speed a bit more. Not to mention you can also cover a bit more water as a faster retrieve simply translates into more total casts over the course of a day. More total casts in a day equals a greater number of total feet of water covered per day.

Just one more trick you can pull out that might get a few more bites from time to time.

SurfsUp, after reading your last reply to chasen slabs #1 I thought this was gonna be some spin on words to where you'd want him to actually take the buzzbaits and burn them in a fire or something...:-) but you surprised me. Good advice! Man you can get those 'up nort' boys rolling smile smiley

What i like to do is to feel the fish out
start slow and work my way up in the speed
theres no need to "ripit" if your don't have to..

I experiment with spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, let the fish tell what they want that day. Superfast or sometimes crank-in buzzbait just fast enough to keep the lure on top.

If your looking to use speed to trigger some suicide fish a way to get a little more speed and less lift is to flatten the willow blade a little. Just take a pliers and bend some of the cup out of the blade.

"suicide fish" - good description. Burning seems to trigger a reflex strike, rather than a hunger or protection one. This was all good info. Thanks everyone!
