I had always wanted to see what would happen if you created a double bladed spinner with two different sized blades. I contacted Dan to see what he could do. I ended up buying a few spinners, some with black bucktails and some with white. The main blade was a #4 Colorado and the secondary blade was a #2, the result was a spinner with more vibration but not as much bulk. A perfect combination to draw aggressive strikes from pike and not immediately get hung up in tree roots and other river debris.
My first few casts and I had a nice 28 inch pike.
A few very nice bass as well in Plainfield, Illinois in early November.
Several nice fish have been landed with a Sims in their first year of production.
50" Musky - Northern Minnesota
Caught on a Sims single #5 yellow spinner.
If you want an expensive, low quality lure that the fish don't like this is not the lure for you.
I lost a few Sims to snags in the spring when that water was high, I came back one fall day when the water was low and found 2 of them, wiped the dirt off and they were as good as new, that says something about the quality. You are not going to find a double Colorado blade spinnerbait you can throw with a medium action rod anywhere else. The single blade Colorado and French blade spinners work nice and can be painted about any color you would want.
I have caught many after that ranging from Pike, Largemouth bass, Smallmouth bass, Bluegill, Crappie and Warmouth on Sims spinner baits.If you don't believe me, go to the site order a few and see for your self. Dan Sims (Owner) and David Mannion (Co-owner) are just two guys who love fishing and enjoy making a quality product. Buy local, buy USA.
