Bass Pro Shops XPS Lazer Eye Strike Spoon
I used the gold one on my trip to the sierras last summer. I was catching nice 1lb rainbows all day at places like north lake and south lake resevoirs on the thomas buoyant (which for the record is the greatest spoon for trout in the world that I've seen). On the last day of the trip we went to lake Sabrina and I decided to break out this spoon. First five casts, five fish. With good size too. I caught my biggest rainbow on this spoon at around 2.5 pounds. Im gonna try some silver this year. the only thing that went wrong with this lure was that one of the trout ripped the tail feather off, but I still caught fish. Great lure!

Productive, but poor finish
During rough conditions, this was the only lure that produced any fish (trout) during a recent trip. Caught 2 nice brookies in about 15 minutes of working this lure. My only complaint was that the yellow stripe had also "washed off" in the same amount of time.

My New Favorite Spoon
I fish primarily in saltwater for Redfish, Flounder, & Speckled Trout. I had always been a soft plastics man, and still use them to some degree, but started throwing these Lazer Eye Spoons while on a wadefishing trip. I was getting 3-1 strikes over the other guys using the old standard Johnson spoons. That got my attention. We were in a back bay recently hunting Redfish when we noticed Speckled Trout on the shoreline. I keep a rod on the boat rigged with one of these spoons at all times now, so I grabbed the rod, cast to the edge of the grass and "Wham!", nice Speck! My friends were throwing plastics with no success. I handed the other two a Lazer Spoon, and it was mayhem for the next 45 minutes! We caught 37 Specks, with 17 keepers. There will, of course, be conditions when I have to use the soft plastics, but the Lazer Spoon is my new "go -to" lure that I reach for first. I like the 1/2OZ, but could see where the 3/4OZ would be good in the surf throwing agains the wind.
