Salmon spoon/flutter spoon


Scoot

Question

Who makes an extremely light spoon for trolling behind downriggers? I'm looking for something like a "five of diamonds"-type spoon that has virtually no weight. I'd like three and four inch versions.

There are tons of trolloing spoons on the market, mostly aimed at downrigger fishing for great lakes trout and salmon. Pro king, northport nailers, coyote spoons, diamond king, the list goes on. If you are inland and local tackle shops don't have them, Cabrlas and bass pro do. If you specificaly want a "daredevil" shape spoon, that may be tough. Most flutter spoons are long and narrow, but come in every color combo imaginable.

Finn spoons, Diamond-King, K-Stars, Sutton's, Evil-Eyes. Theres more but most use the same type spoon design as the K-Stars and D-Kings. In Duluth you can find Jim's Flash-Traks. In the past few years patterns and painting techniques have really evolved. Translucent over chrome and nickle finishes with clear coats have really been hot. I started striping and repainting my chipped up Superior spoons. Its become another hobby out of controll. smile.gif

Which ones will be the lightest? I'd like one that will hold its action going as slow as possible.
Thanks for the replies.

Some of those Sutton's that ST mentions are paper thin, probably the thinnest of all those mentioned. The Scorpions I use have superb action at very slow speeds, I've trolled these out on the mud behind riggers/dipseys while also pulling boards with snapweight/spinner combos at less than 1 mph.

The Evil Eye and the Swedish spoon are thin too. You can bend them to fit your trolling speed, in fact you wont have a choice but to bend them back after a laker bends them all up on you. smile.gif

Fisky I'll have to look into them Scorpions.

      If your company is very large and has many employees, you will have to hire a professional company that is specifically dedicated to that, since a single professional will not be able to do everything, in the google search bar you can find many, but if someone here can recommend you one that has used it as much as possible is much better, good luck to your company and to you!

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/
    • valtt79
      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/
