I've been using a road runner for some time with mixed results. How do you fish yours? I'm still trying to get good at using things other then live bait.

You might want to add some small inline spinners to your tackle box. White, yellow, or chartreuse rooster tail or mepps about an inch to an inch and a half seem to work well for many of the fish around here. Cast parallel to the banks where the little minnows hide and you can usually pick up a bass, cat, white perch, white bass, or even a sunfish. Ultralite to light gear works best for this size lure. The ones with the feather tails seem to work better than the bare hooks.

I have a couple of these and had not had much success with them either. Will try it the way you describe it.

Maybe I'm an idiot, but here goes. Do you just simply cast and slow retrieve these too?

For the inline spinners, yes, cast and let it sink for a few seconds to whatever depth you want to start at, then retrieve just fast enough to get the blade spinning. If you were in a school of breaking fish you might trry just ripping it over the surface as fast as you can to see if you could get one to hit it.

Different sizes and brands take different speeds to get the blade moving.
