Bass Pro Shops Strata Spoon
We have had so much rain this spring, that I have not had a chance to get out fishing.
However, I've used these jigging spoons for over 20 years, and they produce just about every time. I'm always seeking to catch walleye, and these do better than any other type lures available. The only thing that may, at times, out fish them, is live minnows or night crawlers, depending on the temp. of the water. I was introduced to these type lures by first using Hopkins spoons. They were productive, as well, but they are extremely expensive, even if you can locate them anymore. They are very hard to find, and strata spoons are just as effective and much more affordable.

spoon them up
Great spoons for a great price. I used the 1/2oz chrome bucktail while vertical jigging and caught the saugeye in the pictures while fishing a private gravel pit in OH. It was 21 1/4" long. Doug

worked well on schooling strippers, jigged through the school and hang on.

Summer time jigging spoons
When the sun gets directly overhead the bass head for the channel drops. Perfect time to use the Strata Spoon in the 3/4 oz size. A little tip is that you don't have to fish directly under the boat. Make a long cast and use a lift and drop technique or fish the spoon like you would a plastic worm. I fish Illinois hot water lakes and have had 50 to 75 fish days strickly on the Strata spoon. Also a tip on getting this lure unhung. Get directly over the lure and very gently bounce the lure up and down and the weight on the lure will make it come loose about 95% of the time.
