Spinners have proven themselves season after season in the Columbia River estuary and are now considered a Buoy 10 essential. Just make sure you bring lots of different shaped spinner blades, colors and sizes. Also, don’t just crimp your barbs that come stock on your favorite B10 spinners – cut the treble off and crimp on a Big River Bait hook that comes in an open eye. Having a strong single 4/0 hook will ensure deep penetration into any salmon’s jaw. Run your spinner 5 feet behind a Delta Diver and Flasher and you will have a winning combination at the buoy.
