The only spinner that should be used for bass and trout is the small casting spoon, which is a very small spoon with a single undraped hook attached. A worm can be used on the hook but it is unnecessary — the spoon alone is attractive enough. The double hook casting spoons are for use with live bait.
A very good bait, attractive to all game fish, is the Pearl Wabbler. The darting movement of this spoon makes it very attractive. There are other spoons of metal made on the same pattern. These are the same as the original trolling spoon except that they have treble hooks.
In addition to spoons there are also spinners which serve the same purpose. They are leaf-shaped blades attached by loops along the center line to a brass wire link and the lobes of the leaf being turned in opposite directions cause the blade to revolve rapidly when drawn through the water.
