My buddy picked up a nice fish a couple days ago with one, first time he used it. He'll know better by the end of the season.

We crushed them Springer fishing this year on anchor using them, use the middle hole. And I just used a single #1 treb on the tail.

WhoooHoo...hubby is the one that got those to a marketing friend of his. They are killers. Ask away...he'll provide you any info you want to know about colors, how to fish them. Not a Tolman thing..a Dick Jacobs thing...that's why they're called Dick's Sure Spin. PM me for info regarding the marketing person who sells them (since he's not a sponsor on IFish).

What I can tell you is that they are for plug cut herring. There's no fussing with getting the right cut on the herring to ensure spin. Heck, even I can cut the herring. And it does just what it says...sure spin. The second great feature is that, with the herring being so hard to get nowadays, you can fish a longer time with the same herring. We brine our herring. You can leave the guts in the herring for a good scent. It doesn't fall apart in the current. They come in clear, red, green and they just got some UV ones. They have them for green, blue, purple herring and one other size but I can't remember what color the herring is labeled. Smaller I think and I think they can be used with sardines (don't quote me on that one).

So do they work better than regular herring in your opinion? Not having to Always wondering if your herring is spinning would be comforting.

absolutely..well, let me qualify that. I assume that you check your bait periodically to make sure it's not messed up by hitting something or something hitting it....if enough people are interested, he might be willing to meet down at John Storm dock in Oregon City to demonstrate...if there is enough current off the dock at this point.

For those of you who PM'd me, I sent you the wrong phone # for Dick and I also succeeded in losing your messages. If you'll contact me again, I'll get you the right phone #. (good thing I'm retired...I could really mess up office operations in a hurry..lol)

I have a handfull of them and fished them for the first time this year. I normally fish cut plug with a free hand cut that I learned from Dick Jacobs himself. I ran 1/2 cut and 1/2 Dick's sure spin this spring. the Dick's Sure Spin outfished the hand cut. I think they'll really show their value when B-10 starts and you're pulling fresh herring in heavy current. No worries about the cut end of the herring blowing out.

I was at fishermans last night and I was talking to (*****) and he said he was casting with the bait and it was holding up very well. The only issue was that you can fish the same bait till it gets too old.

No you can cut it strait with this set up, the little helmet has the angles for the nice tight spin. They even have them in colors to match your brine/dye.

Folks,

This is a great couple who I consider family. No, they are not an ifish sponsor (Yet?) but I can assure you that this product works and you are supporting the LOCAL economy.

These people are highly respected by many...I even named my son JACOB in honor of them

Bev,
I need some SURE SPINS

I was thinking of attaching one to a plug diver and using the cut plug spinner for bait while fishing for springer's on the Clack or Sandy. Or you could even work a hole over with a side planer with a diver and cut plug VS a kwik fish.

I don't know if these are the ones that use toothpicks to secure herring but I got some for Fall fishing @ a standard toothpick didn't fit through the holes.

A bit of a buzz kill to say the least.

Cheers.

Check out the AnglersInnovations booth at the upcoming Sportsmans Show for the Sure Spins and the LongLiner. PM me or go to the aforementioned website for more dealers. They have proven to be effective fish getters. Dick is hoping to do a demo at OC Fishermans in the future on the long liners. They are a bit confusing at first but once you figure them out, they are great also.

I used them this fall on the Yaquina,and the Siletz. In Tillamook in December. I got fish every place i used them. A few small tricks to useing them but i just cut the head off the herring.Leave the guts in,put in the picks, i use a bobber stop in the helment. Set the hooks the way i like them. And pull them till i get a fish or get tired of looking at the same bait.

The different colors symbolize use for different size herring, from purple to red. There now is also an xs for anchovies. Also, they are designed for round toothpicks.
