    Just wondered if any of you have tried or heard of Spin n Glo's. It's a float with mylar wings when fished in current it spins and the wings put of a flash. You fish it right above the hook with a bead in between. They're used alot in salmon fishing out west, but me and the guys at the tackle shop got a hold of some and have had very good results on the Blues.

    I used to use them all the time for salmon in alaska, never thought about them for cats....hmmmm... Might just work, maybe a little cut bait on the hook....:cool2:

    I do fish them with cut bait on the hook, shad or herring.

    Do they make any noise? Some noise could be a good thing.

    Hey Jerry, I don't think they make any noise, but the wings should put off vibrations as the spin.

    Never used them. But it sounds like I might have to give them a try.

    i have used them for flounder and they work great. i don't see why they wouldn't for catfish especially if you think about it a float in font of your cutbait makes it that much more efficient and who hasn't used a sinner rig and caught catfish put the 2 together and it should work fine.
