The Tail Spin is an overlooked option for Spring bass. Its traditional use is deep water presentations around baitfish and schooling bass. Like many techniques it has been refined in recent years and a variety of new lures have hit the market to help capitalize on the shallow bite, smaller baitfish, short strikes, etc.
If you're still using a tail spinner one dimensionally its time to consider your other options. This bait can be hopped, steadily swam parallel to bottom, jigged, burned, or used to cast extreme distances to busting fish. With so many options its a wonder we don't have a tail spinner tied on every time we hit the lake.
