Question is when you make your own spinner rigs does bead color make that much differance ? If it does is there a rule of thumb for color as it pretaines to the water ,cloud cover,time of year, and color of blade ? What are the best all around colors ? Red ,yellow,green ,white ,are there more ? Jim

I prefer to use red, chartreuse, and pearl beads. I don't use the current conditions for my bead selection. Usually I just match my blade to the conditions. I have never had a problem with my bead selection. I would suggest that you just try different colors and sizes til you find what works best for the area you fish.

I never, after testing for many years, use anything but a light green and or red(salmon) color. Use one or the other color as a solid pattern with the other mixed in as one or two beads down by the hook and up by the blade. (solid row of green with a red or two mixed in or solid row of red with a green or two mixed in.) If that ain't working, nothing will....in my opinion.
how many beads do you generally use on a walleye harness ?
how many beads do you guys use on a spinner for trolling and how many for a spinner for drifting ?

I make sure the blade CANNOT hang over the top hook. I leave at least a 1/4 inch space from the bottem of the blade to the hook eye.

I like blue and white beads with a hammered silver colorado blade.
Has worked well for me for a long time.
