Behold: The Spoon of Wonder
« on: September 24, 2017, 03:03:42 PM »
I am guilty of buying lures that look awesome. So awesome they must catch fish. So awesome that often, they simply don't. I go back to y usual set ups. However, all changed when I found......The Spoon of Wonder. This beauty is two spoons in one. That clearly means twice the mojo. Twice the catching power. Twice the magic. On one side....googly eye black on chrome.....the other side....sparkly googly eye with a uv finish over the cop car ah lah cookies and cream colors. This spoon in the last three trips has accounted for 6 out of 8 kept fish, a few released not by choice, and a chinook released by requirement. It is a two sided marvel. I'll be setting this one aside and using soon some winter blackmouth.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

Like all magical lures it will depart you someday.  Especially if you plan on bouncing bottom for black mouth.

When I get a good lure like a lucky K15 or hot Kingfisher spoon I retire them if they make it through a season.  It makes the wall of fame.

I bid farewell to my #1 spoon of wonder, for some reason they quit making Kingfishers in the yellow fish scale.  For chinook, it outfished everything I had at least 5:1 everywhere from AK to Pt Townsend bank down to Buoy 10.  I hooked a nice bubble nook this year and it took a nasty turn at the boat and broke it off.

When you find one, buy a case of them.

Don't get caught up on colors.  It's usually the action of any particular lure rather than the color that catch the fish and make it that magical lure.  I have several plugs that have barely any of the paint left on them that outfits everything else still.
