Vintage Spinnerbait Holder

Recommended Posts

When I was a younger man (40+ years ago), right after spinnerbaits became THE lure, I bought a spinnerbait holder I wound up liking very much.

The holder consisted of two plastic discs about 4 inches in diameter. One disc had holes about a half inch apart around the perimeter. The other disc had a V notch. The discs both were affixed to a center eyebolt with a spacer and washer between them. You would rotate the V notch disc around to sit over an empty hole and insert the spinnerbait hook point into the hole. Then you could rotate the V notch disc and the spinnerbait could not come out There was one space in the multiple hole disc that had no hole. That was the default position for the V notch. Friction held the discs in place. One holder could carry around 20 spinnerbaits, and if you had a trailer hook, you did not need to remove it. However the trailers sticking out meant you needed caution.

Somewhere along the way my spool with spinnerbaits disappeared. Ive always wondered if it might have been with my ex BIL.

Does anyone remember such a device?

Spinnerbaits are a PIA.

Yes they are. I try to keep them in the package they come in until I need them. And I rarely use one long enough that I need a special place to store it. I do have a spinnerbait box but it just holds them at home. I don't carry it with me. It is my favorite lure though.

I actually only have 3 that are my go-to's.

Carry about 60......but only ever reach for one of those 3

That’s the biggest problem. People carry too much stuff. And I know it’s just in case but if you aren’t ever going to take a chance on something different then quit carrying it. Makes no sense.

Oh I can justify it 😎 

I have a buddy that throws those big 3/4oz. Thumpers with painted blades the size of Datsun hubcaps.  One of these days he's gonna start putting on a clinic from the back of the boat.....and I'll need one BAD.  😁 

I'm ready for that day.
