Product Description

Another revolutionary Johnson innovation, the original Beetle Spin. Simple and easy to use for any angler, Johnson's Beetle Spin is the direct ancestor of the spinner grub Virgil Ward first fished over 50 years ago.
  • Many have tried to imitate it, but there's only one original Beetle Spin
  • A mainstay lure for pond anglers since the 1950's
  • Loud, hard vibration caused by cupped blade calls in fish from further away
  • Beetle bodies offered in the most popular sizes and colors

The Beetle Spin is the first artificial lure I fished with; more than 60 years ago. I use the 32nd ounce for bream and 1/16 for crappie. When they are bedding this is my search lure. I can move fast and switch to live bait when finding them. White is the most used color and black is second. There is no bad color as they all catch fish.
Thanks Johnson for many years of enjoyment for my family and me.

Exactly what I wanted everyone needs a few of these in their tackle box. I have been using this bait for many years have not found anything to even come close to the amount of fish this thing will produce.

All the selection I wanted not offered at the big box stores, similar prices. Perfect. When I lose as many as I do with kids you have to order by the box

I am very happy with them and they are all I use. Ultra light tackle is the only way to go.

Great beetle spins
Have been using these for 2yrs now. Have caught many Bluegill, and other Panfish on the 1/32 oz lures, I even caught a chain pickerel on the 1/32 oz orange w/ black stripes lure weighed about 2.5 - 3 lbs on 8lb mono. Also have the 1/32 oz chartreuse, & white with red dot lures. They are a great value, cheap, and easy to use.

Beetle spin always gets the fish!
Beetle spins catch a variety of fish. Love them for the Ultra light set up for panfish and bass in the smaller lakes we fish. Even the bigger cats love them. Just caught this nice lil chunky bass on a 1/4 oz, orange black Beetle spin. UL set up, 4 lb line.

Probably the most versatile spinner I have ever used for general panfishing. It has caught bass, rock bass, perch, sunfish, northern and the occasional walleye.

Great lure for bream & bass
1st time I used 1/8 in pond, caught 7 2#+ bass. Used 1/16 and caught bream & bass. Both using black body. All that I've bought, the eye is not painted over like other manufacturers of similar styles of lures.
