Product Specifications

One of the most imitated spin jigs on the market has to be the Original Beetle Spin from Johnson.  Even though so many manufacturers have tried to imitate this fish catching machine, none have ever successfully matched the action and simplicity.  The Johnson Original Beetle Spin is actually 2 lures in 1.  When you want to keep the jig moving fast you can leave the safety-pin spinner attached and bring it past the faces of hungry, waiting fish.  As the fishing slows down, or when you want to jig it along the bottom, you can remove the safety pin and start fishing the jig head.

Colors Available

There are 2 main colors available in the Beetle Spin, featuring silver or gold bladed spinners.  The body colors and jig heads are available in too many color combinations to list here.  You are going to want to determine which color styles work the best in your area and then load up your tackle box with those color combos.

How To Work Johnson Original Beetle Spin Jigs

When you’re fishing the Beetle Spin as a spinnerbait you will want to cast it out past areas where you believe panfish, trout, crappie, or bass are waiting and then bring it back past their face.  You can either slow roll the spinner along the bottom, burn it past the center of the water column, or buzz it by just below the water’s surface.

As you take the spinner blade off you can start jigging the lure back to you, bouncing it along the bottom to entice strikes.  When this method fails you can use the same casting retrieves that you would use when the spinner blade is still attached.
