Johnson The Original Sprite Spoon
Fish eat them, they cast a mile...
As a mainly live bait fisherman, I do use the Johnson Sprite a lot under certain conditions. You don't need any real skill to slowly, steadily retrieve them and they cast a long way. They are great for covering a lot of area prospecting for reds, snook, and trout. Finish could be more durable, but I suspect this is planned obsolescence so you buy more lures. Of interest to me is the fact that a two-pack of these lures costs significantly more than twice what a single lure costs...

The Johnston gold spoon with red skirt is also a killer fresh water bass lure........

I have caught tons of sea trout and reds on this lure. It is an essential part of any saltwater box.

I visited Aruba the past 5 years. I fish from shore. With this lure (gold color) I caught 2 foot long shook, Lost a bigger one (line broke I'm using 8lb test) and hooked a tarpon (line broke again now I'm using a leader) and I didn't have any more lures. There's a tackle shop down town that sells this lure in silver. I caught a small fish that looked like an angel fish. I live up north on the east coast and I'm hoping to try the lure on school stripe bass and blue fish.
