Heavy Metal Moves
By: Dave Mull


Bladebaits are year round fish producers, too, the lure of first choice for many anglers in rivers during early spring. Ask Wally Mosier and Phil Caldwell of Gresham, Oregon, who dominated last year's Columbia river Walleye Circuit With Bladebaits (Hedon Sonars and Silver Buddy) . They placed in nine of nine tournaments, claimed team of the year, and won the championship on Bladebaits.

Blades also frequently out fish all other presentations for coaxing pre-spawn males as they begin to gather on lake Erie reefs just after ice-out.

Each Blade design produces a different pattern, from the slight vibration of the 1/4 oz. Cordell Gay Blade to the dramatic vibes of the 2 1/2 oz. Bullet Blade and the 3/4 oz. Reef Runner Cicada. Vibrations from the Heddon Sonar and the Silver Buddy fall in between.
