No matter how well secured you think a spinnerbait skirt is, there’s a good chance it’ll slide off at some point, especially if it’s old or if you’re catching fish left and right. To reduce skirt loss, Georgia bass guide Mike Bucca wraps all his skirts with fly-tying wire prior to hitting the water. If you’re not into prep work, however, Texas guide John Tanner says to always have some small zip ties in your tackle bag. These come in handy not just for securing spinnerbait skirts in a pinch but for mending jigs as well. This is a better alternative to using superglue on the hook shank. While that old trick will definitely keep a skirt in place, it makes swapping skirts a nightmare.
