Bass Pro Shops XPS Lazer Eye Weedless Spoon
old stand by
These spoons are the best all around pike lures I have ever used. They are weedless which is necessary most of the tme here in Alaska. A "must have" for Pike.

43" Ontario Northern!
This was the only weedless spoon that would safely navigate through a submerged 15' football field sized weed bed located in a bay of a Dawn Lake, Ontario fly-in trip (Wilderness North). When it did finally catch on something, which felt like a log snag, it turned out to be the corner of a fat 43" Northern's mouth!! After the subsequent fight, catch and release, the weld between the weed guard/terminal loop and the spoon became very loose, making me wary of using it again, but it's a small price to pay... I would still recommend this lure, as it worked perfectly until I caught that 30+ #er. Lure used was the Gold Shad in 3/4 oz.

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.
