Weedcutter Spinnerbait for Pike, Muskie and All Gamefish
The 1.5 oz. Weedcutter spinner bait isn't new to the Gapen line of tackle, but this size is. Years ago, Dan Gapen, Sr. created the first willow leaf spinner bait for the fishing industry in smaller bass sizes. It was an instant success. Unlike all the other spinner baits, the Weedcutter has a unique ability to travel through weeds, brush, stumps and willow without hanging up. It's deadly on northern pike, muskie, largemouth bass and even giant striper.
Working the Weedcutter
Like any Gapen product, the Weedcutter was field-tested during the summers of 1996 and 1997. This "new" lure proved to be lethal on trophy gamefish. The Weedcutter was especially deadly on muskie and giant northern pike. Attracting these two species was best done by retrieving in a slow-rolling manner through and over dense cover.
