3) Trail Blazing
Adding a soft-plastic trailer to your spinnerbait helps fill out the bait's profile and increases the amount of vibration the lure puts out. And the stronger the vibe, the more your bait mimics a struggling forage species. Also, giving pike a chunk of soft plastic to clamp down on prevents the skirt from shredding so quickly. My go-to spinnerbait trailers are twister tails, lizards, and paddle tails.
