Flutter spoon questions

Recommended Posts

I’ve never fish a flutter spoon and never really had much desire, but lately I’ve been getting more curious about it. I have a few questions for you spooning experts. 

 

1.Does it it need to be clear, or do you still find success with some color in the water? LOZ is not typically as clear as the Rock. 

2. Is this a technique that works in the colder months or is it pretty much a summer time deal?

3. I know there are quite a few topics that can probably answer my other questions that I have right now. So, I’ll get to searching and reading. 

Thanks

They work just dandy on LOZ for LM and stripers/hybrids; my experience is they are more of a warm(60+) water deal but others may fish them effectively in colder water.  Last weekend a good number of fish were suspended at 22’ in deep water and a friend was doing well with one counting down and horizontal jigging through them.

I’m thinking that I can try shooting them into the deep condo docks. Seems like it could be a good way to cover a decent amount of water and hit more of a big dock in less time.

I am sure you will catch fish; you will likely catch cabling as well so bring more than one...

Cables and brush piles are my two biggest worries. I never hear about anyone up here fishing them, but I hear about guys doing it on table rock all the time.

I have done a good bit of it around big docks on LO.  Never messed with the great big spoons out on structure.  The one I pitch is a double that is 4" long. I just pitch it in there, let it flutter down 8-12'.  The actual depth under the dock doesn't seem to matter (10'-40+').  All of my bites have come within the first few feet of drop. I've never had any luck diddling around down deep with it.  

An extra hook on the front makes it harder to pitch (watch your fingers!) but helps keep them stuck.  

Don't dick around with them at the boat. Swing them in right away or they'll shake off and shoot that spoon right at your face.
