Spinnerbaits

I know this has come up before, but most of the discussion around spinnerbaits seems to be around their strength to withstand a peacock battle. I'm curious in their ability to attract strikes to begin with regardless whether they've held up or not. Also, has anyone used the so-called beefed up models (e.g. closed loop eye, heavier wire, etc.) with any success? It just seems like in heavy cover situations using a retrieve just bulging under the surface could really be effective.

We, 4 guys, had good luck with spinnerbaits years ago in Lake Guri but we were at the other end of Guri close to the dam. I tried them a few trips in Brazil and no luck.

But also had great luck in Peru with rattletraps and no luck in Brazil with them.

Ed:
It's interesting you should say that about Guri. I had a video of Jimmy Houston successfully catching peacocks on spinnerbaits and recalling that, I believe it was on Guri.

Really strange that it would work there, but in Amazonas. Anybody have a theory on that?

I agree Dan. The spinnerbaits always work better on windy days if you're fishing them on the top. At least for the largemouths in Florida.

I'm pretty much convinced I'll just have to take a couple with me to see for myself.

BTW - what's so natural about a 7" hunk of ceder crashing into the water and going pffft...pffft....pffft? :-)
