Artizan 'Double Trouble' Spinnerbaits

The Artizan ‘Double Troubles’ series of Spinnerbaits are a ‘swing blade’ or articulated style lure that utilises Tungsten bullet heads with 52 strand skirts, a choice of Hammered Brass or Silver Nickel coated Willow blades, and 4/0 Double Hooks.

 

The Double Trouble is designed to be fished in both open water and where there is thick cover. Double Troubles are designed to be versatile. They are built using a free-swinging hook design that allows the angler to quickly change the hook for all types of presentations, should the need arise. As well as the Swimerz Double Hook fitted as standard, we also include selected Wide Gape and Straight Shank Hooks.

The solid brass Willow blades used in their construction can be fished faster, and are a better choice for warmer and clearer water, than Colorado Blades. The hammered finish has more flash than a smooth blade, also adding a small amount of drag.  Blades are a consistent size across the range, with the range of head weights enabling fishing from the shallows (with the lighter heads) to deeper water, as required.

The stainless steel wire used is heavy duty and can withstand any abuse, is highly rust resistant, enabling more ‘pull’ and a good hook set on a long cast. The length of the front wire and placement of the blade provides protection for the hooks when fishing in cover.

Tuning Double Troubles. The more you open a wire up or spread it apart from the blades and the head, the more you can slow the bait down and get it to vibrate. It also gives the spinnerbait more lift so it will want to come up in the water column. Closing the wire gives you more speed, and it will be more apt to stay down and not rise to the surface.

Adding a soft plastic lure is optional with fluttertail lures like the Swimerz VTail Soft plastic enhancing deepwater fishing, as these lure type provide less lift in the water than standard curly tail or paddle tail soft plastics.
