Willowleaf spinner blades #4.5 ( also known as "Willow" blades ) are long and narrow and need a faster speed to keep them rotating on your walleye rigs. One advantage they have is they do imitate the side profile of a baitfish which is long and slender. Another advantage of willowleaf blades is your home made fishing lures run deeper. We also have soft live bait jig heads which you can tie onto your walleye spinner in place of the rear hook which makes your walleye rigs more buoyant. That way you get a shallower running live bait rig and still maintain the nice side profile a willowleaf blade offers. Our specialty is proving fishing lure components for walleye lures.
