Dutch Fork Custom Lures
From the east coast to your boat, spinner blades and tackle proven to catch walleye by the pros. Ghost blades are lighter and more versatile than metal blades. You can see the bead pattern through the blade which will change colors as it spins. The Colorado blades will spin freely at .4 mph, and since they have less flash and less vibration than traditional metal blades they really work well under sunny skies, flat calm conditions or heavily pressured fish!
