Rated 5 out of 5 by Debron911 Proven performer The Red eye wiggler is a proven early season performer for Northern Pike and bass on Sanford Lake. The hammered copper color seems to really work. The upper hooks make a rattling noise that helps attract fish, and they seemingly cannot resist the urge to strike. with 5 hooks, they usually get caught. The main disadvantage is that it is no longer useful in trhe weed bed areas once the weeds get near the surface. Available in many colors. May 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LifetimeFishingChick Timeless Versatile Killer I remember seeing this in my father's spoon collection since I was very young. It was on the suggestion list of spoons I should buy for the NW Territories of Canada. Not only did I reel in enormous ancient pike with these until my arms felt like jelly, but I've also pulled in numerous 20+lb lake trout while trolling with them.. I recently tried some shore casting with the standard 1oz nickel. I pulled in a 30lb king salmon from the mouth of Green Bay. The term "oldie but goodie" is an understatement with these lures. The 1oz is great for casting for distance, and the action is easy to feel and adjust or maintain evenly. The action along with the size and eyes really peeves off territorial fish causing them to strike consistently. There's no school like the old school. September 20, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by gonefishn2 Don't Leave Home Without it I have used this lure for over 40 years, and is my lure of chioce when fishing for Northern Pike in the Door County area of Wisconsin, and the Washington Island area. I still have the very first one my grandfather gave me when I was 10 years old, and I'm still catching Northern with it. It is a proven lure, and you should not leave home without one in your box. I have found the original nickel works best, followed by the brass, 3" lure. July 20, 2011
