Dick's Sure Spin® Herring Helmet , now available in 8 sizes and 7 colors, continues to put more fish in the net. Beach and jetty casters are taking increased amounts of salmon by casting and retrieving herring like a spinner - even down rigger trollers can use plug cut herring with confidence because of increased bait durability! All colors react to UV light.
Sure Spin provides 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. Increasing numbers of anglers use Sure Spin® with an appropriate sized Maruto treble. Sure Spin is effective fished alone or with your favorite flasher. Maruto makes an excellent barbed sickle style hook of premium quality and for the expanding barbless fisheries, use the same hook in a ridged barbless version we call a Grabber Hook.
Riging: bait sizes and grades often vary by supplier, year, and season. For example if you are using green label herring focus on size Medium and have a few Large in the box as well. There is typically one to several oversize in a tray of medium or green label herring, the same is often true for all the other size grades.
