Bass Pro Shops XPS Lazer Eye Weedless Spoon
So here is another version of the classic toothy-critter spoon. I like it because it delivers pike just like the other spoons that come only in chrome, gold, and black. I cannot say that the cool picture designs catch more fish, but it sure is awesome to throw! It works in the weeds and thats where the fish are. For every 50 pike I catch, there is usually a nice 4-pound largemouth that I get too. Works well in deep water, clear water but best in mid-weeds. Durability is good. I keep a lot with me and always seem to hand them out to the weekend guys who don't have any spoons with them. Get 3 or 4 and use them. Use a leader. You will catch fish.

I bought my first XPS Lazer Eye Spoon when I was much younger. It was shiny so I bought it of course. Years later, after I lost the original, I bought a replacement. In a quite funny incident I was swimming this spoon with a pork chunk over some sunken logs in a pond and noticed how it looked EXACTLY like a swimming baitfish. I called my friend over to look and right as I said how much it looked like a fish, a bass came up and inhaled it. So needless to say so I like these. Great colors, finish durability, and action, especially with some color coordinated pork to match. The one complaint I have is that its not totally weedless.

It does work pretty well. It's not an 'every cast catches a fish' lure, but there is a time and place when you need something weedless, flashy and simple.

I bought this spoon about a year ago and really haven't used it until this last week fishing weeds/pads for pike. I probably caught 3 pike with it when the 4th took off with the spoon and left me with the weedless wire attached. I figured the loop would be more firmly welded to the spoon not the weedless wire. It worked when I used it but it just didn't last as long as I hoped.
