Learned Something About Spoons


Recommended Posts

Recently i bought 2 3/4 oz spoons that resemble a daredevil. They were the PBS brand. Well I knew right away I was taking a chance. But I was on the upper end if my spending budget and was telling myself a spoon is a spoon. Well I took them home and and both on a dead drop and retrieve they spun like a single pin at the slightest provocation. I hated the darn things. I expect my spoons to flutter. I got to tinkering around and reversed the set up. I took the hook and put it on the split ring you tie you line to and tied my line to the end where the hook should be. It really made a a world of difference. It has a real fine flutter now and a nice wobble on retrieve. Just wanted to submit this if anyone has a cheap spoon like this that will not preform well.

It has caught some small catfish the first time I tried on a hump that us 30 ft deep. This spoon is the one PBS sells under the name of Flashy Times and it is 3/4 oz. it has a slight configuration difference than say a dare devil. But both are teardrop spoons. If you got a tear drop spoon just take it and reverse the hook setup and see what happens. Thats how we find out things.

When I was young I never left to go fishing without a Johnson Silver spoon. I never caught a fish on one, but according to all the magazines I was supposed too.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

I caught fish on them when I was living in Massachusetts. Drag them over lilly pads, then when you hit the edge of the pads, let it drop. Tipped with one of those Uncle Josh white split tail pork rind trailers. It might work hopped down a steep bank here in the Ozarks, kind of like a flutter spoon, but less snaggy.
