Throw The Spinner Away
No, we’re not literally saying to throw your spinners away. In fact, quite the opposite. If it meets regulations, always have it with you, but don’t be afraid to ditch that spinner if the birds aren’t finishing.
This may go against every fiber of your being as a waterfowler but keep an open mind and give it a try. Some states don’t allow spinners until later in the season, but regardless, think about how many white flashing objects that group of pintails sees from 500 feet in the air. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry has 1-3 in their spread. Be different, look different, and you’ll see it pay off often.
