Now, Little George lures are typically used in the fall, winter, and early spring months--when the waters are still a bit cold and you need to draw some spookish bass out to get a little action. Still, though, these ones can be good in a variety of situations. Check out the video on slide 2 for how to use this and other heavy tailspinners for summer bass. When you cast the little george, you want to count it down to the depth the fish are going to be at depending on the lake or river you're in, and then bring it up a few feet before letting it fall slowly. Since the george has a spinnerblade, you want to make sure to pull it up steadily so that the blade will activate and cause the lure to "vibrate "as if its live bait--this is what will draw in your fish. Let it fall slowly; chances are, fish going after this one will hit while it's dropping, nearly 75% of the time. It's also good to fish these along submerged structures, and then along cliffs or sandbars where fish might school in the fall months. If you're not getting anything, you can also try fishing it vertically, letting it drop down, and bringing it up pretty sharply to get it spinning before letting it fall again. Do this along structures in any depth all the way back to the boat. This lure may be an old classic and largely overshadowed by newer lures; still, its probably one of the best selling metal lures you can get your hands on.
