Eppinger Red Eye Wiggler Spoons
Eppinger Re Eye Wiggler Spoons
great lure for Northerns, Sturdy, well balanced and very effective. Especiall the five of diamonds and red/white combination.
It is pricey, but to have one or two in the box is a must. I would use it more if the price was better.

My go-to Pike lure
The 1 oz. for Pike is my go-to lure in Manitoba at God's Lake. I'm almost convinced that the color doesn't matter, other than lite lures for bright days and darker lures for dark days. Beyond that, it doesn't seem to matter. Pike will hit this lure with abandon. When the double hooks in front get lost it doesn't seem to affect anything; Pike keep hitting it. My favorite colors are the Chartreuse/Orange Sides, the Black/White Stripe, the Silver/Blue, the 5 of Diamonds, and the Hammered Copper. An erratic retrieve will generally always produce strikes.
It can be used in the weeds, too, if you are careful. Great Pike lure.

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.

Eppinger Red Eyes
The Eppinger Red Eye Wiggler series lures were recommended to me by the "Old Guys" who I go to Canada with every August for some Northern Pike and Small Mouth Bass fishing. These lures have out performed everything else in my tackle box every year. I would recommend to anyone going fishing up North to save your time on trying to figure out what lures you need and just buy "Red Eyes" and some very strong Bass Pro leaders because you don't want to loose one of these great Pike weapons.
