The best spinners for pike

Rublex orkla

Rating: 4.9

Rublex orkla

The catchy lure, consistently ranked high in various ratings and reviews, is a representative of the classic oscillating models for fishing pike. Just like Abu garcia toby , Orkla has a wide range of dimensions, represented by six modifications weighing from 8 to 24 grams and corresponding lengths ranging from 57 to 81 millimeters. The body is made according to all the canons of the Scandinavian type of spinners, i.e. has an S-shape. Such a configuration makes the movement spasmodic, reminiscent of a fry floating away from the spot, and inevitably forces the predator to follow a potential prey. In the attack phase, the key advantage towards the spinner is provided by the hooked tee, which retains its original condition for a long period of time (2-4 seasons).

If it is advisable to use all the spoons that appear in the rating up to this position as the main ones, then Rublex Orkla feels quite at ease as a purely fishing bait. It seems that her vocation is to dictate the bite tone of a large and medium predator. True, the high price inevitably repels thrifty fishermen from making a purchase, so, alas, it will not work to call it the most popular.

Advantages

  • the presence of six dimensional modifications within the series;

  • high-quality and seductive design of the spoon;

  • high quality workmanship;

  • very hooked tees;

  • imprisonment for breaking up reservoirs.

disadvantages

  • unreasonably high price.

Mepps Aglia Long

Rating: 4.8

Mepps Aglia Long No. 00

The outstanding creation of the French company Mepps was based on the principle of universal minimalism, working to the maximum of its modest possibilities. By some miracle, this rate worked, and the inexpensive (neither in terms of production, nor even more so in terms of purchase), the bait became a real bestseller in the circles of domestic fishermen. The prefix 'Long' in the name of the spinner indicates an elongated petal, the use of which is advisable when fishing on the current. This configuration gives the lure good control while driving and adds expressive movement. On the axial part of the Agila Long there is a weight and a red bead that serves as a mark for an attack.

A wide range of spinners has received special approval from the anglers, with 6 different sizes, adapted for catching a predator of any size. In addition, I was very pleased with the cost, which has not undergone a single change since the beginning of the widespread rise in prices. It is recommended to have such a sample in your own collection for every lover of productive fishing, especially since the purchase will not hit your pocket at all.

Advantages

  • very simple and reliable design;

  • wide range (models available from 2.5 to 29 grams of weight);

  • attractive appearance and active play during wiring;

  • extremely low cost level.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Blue Fox Super Vibrax

Rating: 4.8

BLU E FOX Super Vibrax

The noticeable and catchy Blue Fox Super Vibrax spinner is an equivalent replacement for the equally cool Mepps Agila Long bait, although it loses to the latter in terms of popularity in Russia. Paying tribute to the classics, the lure is excellent in catching perch (weighing 6-8 grams), but it does not shy away from dragging a very large pike out of the water. Vybrax's teardrop petal has good stability when fishing in the current, as well as vigorous and inviting play in stagnant water even with minimal pull. Cylinders resembling streamlined capsules with a small plane at the top are used as a load on this bait. This configuration creates additional drag, as if slowing down the spoon during fast retrieval, and also creates characteristic low-frequency vibrations.

The flight data of the Blue Fox Super Vibrax is due to the rational placement of the center of gravity, which carries the entire structure in motion by inertia. Particularly good results in this component are demonstrated by older models of spinners (weighing 10-12 grams), suitable for fishing pike, zander, river trout and chub. This is one of the most 'understandable' lures and is widely recommended for inexperienced anglers to hone their craft.

Advantages

  • satisfactory range of flight when casting;

  • four sizes of lures in the series (from 6 to 12 grams);

  • very noticeable and 'live' model;

  • the possibility of fishing for pike, pike perch, perch, trout and chub;

  • attractive price.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Kuusamo Professor 3

Rating: 4.7

Kuusamo Professor

A true 'professor' among their kind, this series of spinners is renowned as one of the most catchy that has ever been on Russian soil. Its name contains a very veiled hint of superiority, remarkable performance and virtuoso performance, which are so lacking in its closest competitors. Despite being limited by two serial modifications (with the same length of 75 millimeters and a weight of 9 and 12 grams) Professor 3 covers all the needs of anglers in bait for fishing grassy terrain and clear water. Such versatility of the spinner is justified by the presence of metal tendrils that protect the hook (single or double) from accidental hooks and breaks.

From a visual point of view, Kuusamo Professor 3 looks much preferable to some of its rated competitors. The fact is that the manufacturer offers as many as 20 color options for baubles – both provocative and close to the natural color. In terms of price, the bait is not the cheapest, but its price is fully justified both constructively and productively. This shaker is not in great demand among new anglers, but amateurs take it very willingly.

Advantages

  • the possibility of fishing in clear water and in grassy thickets;

  • optimally matched rigidity of the safety whiskers;

  • very high quality coating that does not fade and abrasion for a long time;

  • favorable price-quality ratio.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Abu garcia toby

Rating: 4.6

Abu garcia toby

Another iconic model for the fishing industry, developed by Swedish craftsmen from Abu Garcia, could not pass by the rating of the best. Toby is an adherent of the original form of the oscillating spoon, which has absorbed the uncharacteristic bends of the calf and the presence of pointed wings at the top of the base. The latter are necessary to increase the lateral sway during the execution of the drive at various levels of intensity. In the most 'neglected' cases, the movement of the bait begins to resemble a corkscrew – the passes become so large.

The manufacturers decided to achieve an increase in the alluring effect by introducing a double color, leaving only a small part of the monochromatic colors in the series. The size range of Abu Garcia Toby also pleases with its variability. There are as many as 5 of them in the line, the weight of which ranges from 7 to 30 grams. However, all of them, in one way or another, are suitable for catching pike, sometimes being 'distracted' by catching other predators.

Advantages

  • low purchase price (in comparison with similar models);

  • high degree of catchability;

  • five size options and an abundance of color schemes;

  • non-trivial movement that changes when the intensity of the wiring changes.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Mepps Comet

Rating: 4.5

Mepps Comet

A series of spinning lures from the French manufacturer Mepps was developed with priority fishing for perch, but became widespread for fishing for large-toothed predators. The French did not invent something unique, preferring the universal shape of the petal, which starts at low speeds and is stable when fishing in the current. In terms of size ranges, the Comet series is also optimal. The smallest in its family is the PTS 2 model, which weighs no more than 4.5 grams. Next are the larger PTS 3 and 4, with generally similar build and pike handling.

The luring ability of this lure is based on the double action of the petal: high-frequency rotation and the accompanying visual effect created by flickering bright dots on a solid (gold or silver) background. The apogee of the Comet's superiority over the competition was the extremely low cost of the models, the acquisition of which is not alien to even high-class fishing professionals.

Advantages

  • double alluring action of the petal (dynamic and visual);

  • stable operation in stagnant water and with medium-weak current;

  • start of rotation immediately after immersion in water;

  • excellent workmanship and low purchase price.

disadvantages

  • not found.

The best wobblers for pike

ZIPBAITS ORBIT 110 SP

Rating: 4.9

ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP

A prominent representative of the ZipBaits company takes the top line of the rating due to the unified body geometry, which gives the minnow new behavioral facets. The deviation from the canonical look lies in the increased hump in the dorsal part, which contributes to the occurrence of vertical movements in addition to the wobbler rolling from side to side. In addition, the 110mm Orbit suspender is easily controlled on the water, can be used for a variety of leads and flies quite far when casting (due to the presence of a floating balancer). As for the external data, here, too, the wobbler managed to excel at its best. The durability of the lacquer coating has been repeatedly noted by domestic fishermen who have used this bait for several fishing seasons. In addition, the colors are also different – there are about 50 of them in the assortment of the line.

Despite such a perfect description, ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP faced a serious image problem that unwittingly reduced the number of ardent fans of the series. The reason here lies in the fact that the growth in popularity of the wobbler and the rather high cost have caused a wave of stuffing of fakes, the technical characteristics of which cannot be compared with the original.

Advantages

  • optimal overall performance (110 millimeters in length. 16.5 grams in weight);

  • good casting range;

  • the ability to work on the burial horizon from 80 to 100 centimeters;

  • 48 colors in the assortment of the line;

  • versatility in terms of the use of postings.

disadvantages

  • availability of low-quality counterfeits on the market.

Yo-Zuri L-Minnow

Rating: 4.8

YO-ZURI L-Minnow

One of the most successful series of wobblers stops one step away from the leading position and the entire history of this market segment. L-Minnow from Yo-Zuri is a successful attempt to create a bait that has a body texture and color that exactly matches the appearance of a real fry. It is known for certain that the concepts of these minnows consisted of 4 length options within one line, but today (mainly due to the great popularity) on the market, you can only find models with 44 and 66 millimeters. Nevertheless, even such a modest gradation in size does not prevent the small L-Minnow from showing excellent results in catching large fish – the main victim of the attractiveness of the wobbler is the pike and the gaping perch.

The game of representatives of this line is distinguished by high intensity, the description of which is best described by the word 'flickering'. Even with uniform tracking, the minnow demonstrates increased twitching, which immediately catches the eye of an attentive fish and provokes the latter to a smashing attack. As a result, in this competition, the wobbler almost always wins, allowing retirements in only 2-3% of cases.

Advantages

  • good controllability of the wobbler with different wiring styles;

  • high catchability of pike and perch;

  • a wide range of colors within the line;

  • the possibility of fishing for snags, rocky embankments and grassy locations.

disadvantages

  • high price.

Megabass Vision 110

Rating: 4.8

Megabass Vision 110

Another loud-voiced flagship of the Megabass company, the development of which was carried out with the aim of productive work in the reservoir for catching bass. Having several deviations from the classic forms of the minnow fish (increased hump in the dorsal part), Vision has a 110 mm body, adapted for fishing in mainly the upper layers of reservoirs (with a depth of 1 meter). As a balancer, it implements a floating weight system, the role of which was taken over by a tungsten cylinder. When casting, the center of gravity shifts to the tail, giving the bait an impulse to increase the flight distance. After submersion, the weight gradually displaces to the head of the wobbler, which positively affects the dynamics of its movement (not only horizontal, but also vertical swaying) during the wiring.

The main factor in choosing the Megabass Vision 110 is the ability to carry out wiring of any intensity level, whether it be a uniform pass, step jig or aggressive twitching. The wobbler shows itself perfectly in all these fishing manners, opening up new facets for anglers. The only significant drawback of this model is the high price level, which only ardent fans of fishing can pull (within the framework of reasonable target spending).

Advantages

  • great popularity of the bait in the domestic market;

  • full compatibility with various fishing styles;

  • optimal quality;

  • good flight data;

  • implemented floating balancer system.

disadvantages

  • high level of cost.

RAPALA Husky Jerk

Rating: 4.7

Rapala husky jerk

The competitive classic minnow from the Finnish company Rapala got into the rating due to its extreme popularity among anglers who prefer versatile lures for catching various predators. Huky Jerk in this regard is simply incomparable: going down to 120-240 centimeters, it catches not only pike, but also pike perch, brown trout, perch, as well as river trout and salmon. The main technique for fishing with this wobbler is to make a very accurate eyeliner to the fry flock – the main thing in such a situation is to choose the right color. The chaotic running of the fry when a predator appears will create the necessary confusion, and if you give this bait a small impulse to move, it will inevitably become a 'victim' of the attack.

As for the dimensional parameters of the Husky Jerk, there are as many as 5 of them within the line – from 60 to 140 millimeters in increments of every 20 length units. At the same time, their weight varies between 3 and 18 grams, causing the appearance of good flight data in larger models. The only more or less serious drawback of the model can be called the price parameter, but when looking at the quality it does not seem so overpriced.

Advantages

  • high quality workmanship;

  • the presence of five standard sizes within one series (from 60 to 140 millimeters);

  • good flight data from 'older' wobblers;

  • realistic appearance;

  • an abundance of natural colors.

disadvantages

  • quite high price.

Jackall Smash Minnow 110 SP

Rating: 4.6

Jackall Smash Minnow 110 SP

The bait, created in the best traditions of customization for real fish fry, successfully competes with the equally well-known L-Minnow line from Yo-Zuri. Purely conservative in terms of colors (at the moment, manufacturers have prepared only 6), Smash Minnow continues to enjoy the fame of the most provocative bait, forcing predators to go into a thoughtless attack. One of the characteristic features of this wobbler is the original balancing, which gives the wobbler an increased inclination to the side edges during the drive. Such a swaying movement simply cannot ignore the attention of the fish, and it is due to it that the bait realizes such successful provocations.

With a length of 110 millimeters, the Smash Minnow suspension weighs in the region of 19 grams. Such impressive dimensions allow anglers to fish with a wobbler from the coastline without much difficulty. As for the deepening horizon, it is, in general, not so great. With active posting, the minnow goes into the water no more than 80 centimeters, where it perfectly catches big pike, asp and pike perch (closer to dusk).

Advantages

  • excellent catchability of pike;

  • accurate reproduction of the body texture of a real fish

  • optimal overall dimensions, contributing to the possibility of casting from the shore;

  • adaptation of color solutions mainly for natural colors of fish.

disadvantages

  • high retail value.

The best vibrotails for pike

Crazy Fish VIBRO FAT

Rating: 4.9

Crazy Fish Vibro Fat

The leading line of the rating is occupied by a reliable jig vibrotail, the main advantage of which is expressed in a clear observation of the balance in the component of softness / stiffness. Actually, this fact makes other important characteristics, such as strength, extensibility and ability to absorb attractants, optimal. The last in the series, by the way, as many as 6 – ranging from standard fish oil aromas, and ending with the specific smells of shellfish and crustaceans.

As for the dimensional variations, within the Vibro Fat line, those lie in the range of 71-120 millimeters, providing various amplitudes of the swing of the tail with a massive heel. In terms of durability of use, these silicones are unmatched, showing excellent results in both the preservation component and the price ratio. Vibro Fat definitely deserves attention from domestic anglers as the best vibrotail for pike fishing.

Advantages

  • many color options (solid, component and with the introduction of sparkles);

  • excellent material balancing in terms of softness / hardness;

  • the presence of attractants in a basic form;

  • high degree of 'survivability' of the tail;

  • three standard sizes within one line (70, 100 and 125 millimeters).

disadvantages

  • not found.

Fox Rage Fork Tail

Rating: 4.8

Fox Rage Fork Tail

By the opinion of a large number of anglers, V-shaped silicone lures are among the most worthless of all species diversity. However, the advent of Fox Rage Fork Tail to the market has managed to significantly change the state of affairs and return to such an uncommon class a bit of consumer confidence. Externally very similar to fish fry, this silicone has a grainy (scaly) texture, realistic enough to convince a predator of 'liveliness'.

Fork Tail is distributed in three standard sizes: 100, 135 and 180 millimeters, each of which is suitable for pike fishing. All the work of drawing attention to its person is performed by a sensitive V-shaped tail, which works freely with both offset hooks and jig heads. To enhance the luring effect, anglers recommend using this silicone with attractants containing fish oil extract. Such a measure will eliminate any hesitation of the predator and provoke him to an immediate attack of the hook.

Advantages

  • excellent alluring conditions;

  • three dimensional variations within one series;

  • good value for money;

  • the possibility of impregnation with attractants;

  • realistic appearance.

disadvantages

  • the thin tail breaks off easily when hooked.

Mann's samba

Rating: 4.7

Mann's samba

The original concept of a vibrotail from the Mann company came to the liking of domestic fans of catching toothy predators. The unique shape of Samba contains a downward triple undercut from the body to the tail, which allows the silicone to make complex multidirectional movement along the wire. This lure has only one standard size in its series (80 mm long), which is equally suitable for catching medium-sized fish and for pulling a real trophy from the water.

The variety of colors and designs make Mann’s Samba one of the most versatile lures that can be used for any fishing conditions. Among other advantages of this vibrotail can be distinguished a very low cost and distribution method – 5 pieces in one pack. This is a great lure for beginners to use to perfect your jigging technique.

Advantages

  • an abundance of undercuts and transitional elements that have a positive effect on the game of the bait;

  • an abundance of color variations (about 23 pieces);

  • durable material of manufacture;

  • the ability to catch predators of any size (from small to large).

disadvantages

  • not found.

The best twisters for pike

SAVAGE GEAR Monster Slug 20

Rating: 4.9

SAVAGE GEAR Monster Slug 20

The unexpected leader of the rating is the unique SAVAGE GEAR Monster Slug 20, which is a non-standard twister with the outlines of the body of a full-fledged fish. A thin tail, made in the form of two small antennae, acts as an alluring element here. When navigating, the current creates very intense vibrations of the tail part, which creates the illusion of a rapidly floating fry. This in many ways provokes the predator to attack, forcing him to rush thoughtlessly after the skillfully executed bait.

Despite the fact that SAVAGE GEAR Monster Slug 20 is mainly a sea lure, domestic fishermen have adapted it well for fishing in small bodies of water. The specificity of the size (200 millimeters in length and 30 grams in weight) performs the function of screening out small fish, guaranteeing a bite of a real trophy. Therefore, when using this twister, you should always be on your guard – a sudden jerk can discourage even the most experienced angler.

Advantages

  • optimal balance of price and quality;

  • large overall dimensions, making it possible to fish in the sea;

  • an interesting split-tail game;

  • several basic color options (5 pieces).

disadvantages

  • not found.

MANN`S TWISTER 040 CH

Rating: 4.8

MANN`S TWISTER 040 CH

Flaunting classics from the Mann company perfectly took root in domestic reservoirs, for which it received a well-deserved place in the ranking of the best. Its strong point is its versatility, which makes it possible to catch small fish for microjig, and the next moment to swing at dragging a trophy predator. This duality is facilitated by the combination of a decent length (120 millimeters) and low weight, requiring the addition of a loading element to the bait system.

Everything from the movement of the tail to the corrugation of the body is subject to classic manners. It is noteworthy that the most catchy of the entire collection of MANN`S TWISTER paints is the bright 040 CH rich lemon color. At the same time, it cannot be said that other options show themselves much worse, but this was originally established. But the really key factor in buying this bait was that when packaged in 10 pieces, it costs very little and, moreover, has good strength indicators. As a result: one full bag can easily be enough for 5 fishing seasons.

Advantages

  • versatility in terms of applicable postings;

  • optimal dimensions for fishing big pike;

  • high popularity among domestic fishermen;

  • reasonable price for a set (10 pieces).

disadvantages

  • not found.

Pontoon 21 homunculures hightailer

Rating: 4.7

Pontoon 21 homunculures hightailer

The third contender of the twister rating is the classic silicone with an elongated body, the game of which is distinguished by high intensity and appeals to the mindless reflexes of the toothy predator. The Pontoon 21 Homunculures Hightailer is available in two sizes (70 and 83 millimeters), the difference between which is virtually imperceptible. The smaller model has slightly sharper movements, which are led not only by pikes, but also by smaller predators (such as chub, perch and ide). In turn, the large model works for expressiveness, giving out a kind of click when guiding on the tail.

In addition to the peculiarities of the movement, Pontoon 21 Homunculures Hightailer is distinguished by an abundance of colors for any conditions of the fished reservoirs. As noted in the reviews, the packing method, which provides for the sale of a twister in a set of 5 or 6 pieces (depending on the size), gives no less advantage to this bait.

Advantages

  • low price;

  • several size options in the line;

  • more than 15 color options;

  • the possibility of using silicone with single and double hooks.

disadvantages

  • low tail strength – instant breaks from the toe are not uncommon.
