Most bass fishermen associate spinner baits with springtime fishing. In the summertime months crankbaits, big worms, and jigs are the baits of choice. While these statements are generally true, most of us tend to forget that a spinner bait can be used in the summertime as well.
Strike King released a spinnerbait a couple of years back called the Bottom Dweller. It is a big spinnerbait that was made specifically for deep water. The Bottom Dweller is most commonly thrown in current-based lakes but it is equally effective in reservoirs as well. I like to fish the Bottom Dweller in the same places I throw my crankbaits and big worms.
