Dick's Sure Spin® Herring Helmet delivers a perfect cut plug spin every time and extends bait life giving the angler increased fishing time. Fish with downriggers, at higher trolling speeds, and against currents with confidence. Rig with your favorite herring leader configuration.
Available in 6 colors for a variety of locations and conditions, the Sure Spin is rigged by placing it over a typical plug cut bait as shown. All colors except clear, react well to black and UV light. Whether hand cut or miter cut Sure Spin gives a correct and durable cut angle throughout the life of the bait. There are many ways to fish and rig a Sure Spin, but most often an out of the package two hook herring rig is the choice. Sure Spin is effective fished alone or with your favorite flasher. In the expanding barb-less fisheries here in the Northwest use our Maruto semi-barb-less Grabber Hooks with Sure Spin.
