RC Trickster spinnerbait

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

RC Trickster spinnerbait

Postby pharmboy2010 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 12:28 am

Know these have a small cult following. After what seems like a pretty long hiatus, back available on TW. Really wish they sold just the blades to put on other spinnerbaits.

These are some of favorite spinner baits. However, I do find they have inferior skirts. I always upgrade mine.

Tricksters are the best spinnerbaits bar none. Those blades are awesome. I was pumped to see them on TW the other day!

Question for you guys: I saw a video of Clunn talking about spinnerbaits, and when he talked about the Trickster, he claimed they vibrate so hard that you can expect the frame to snap after a few days of hard use. Seems like a bizarre comment, and one that doesn't inspire confidence. Do you have any experience to suggest this is true?

I've still got and use a trickster that I purchased in 2006 or 07. Of course the skirt has been replaced but they hold up fine. I can't imagine he meant what he said literally.

Correction: Clunn said to an audience member if you take the blades off the Trickster and put them on another (presumably lighter wire) frame, they'd fatigue the wire to breaking within a day. Still an obvious exaggeration. BTW, he also says there are no good spinnerbait fishermen on tour anymore.

Still one of my favorite spinnerbait to this day.

i picked up a couple at my local wal-mart yesterday. they only had 1/2oz white and wht/chart.

i had 1 of these back in the day, and it really wasn't a very good bait. the new 1's have a small red teardrop bead on the shaft to prevent the clevis from getting past the bend.

update. the trickster didn't make it but about an hour, then you had to pump it to get the front blade turning. i think i'll just stick with baits i assemble at home, i never seem to have any problems with those.
