I want to get some opinions on fishing with spoons. What success have you guys had with them and what your views and techniques are on them. Thanks

It depends on the mood of the fish.Most spoons will work.I find they are much more effective with some type of bait tipped.Minnow heads,larvae and wax worms are a few types of bait used.Plastics can work to but the learning curve for that is longer.(Subtle movements best).Some spoons that come to mind are little cleos,sweedish pimples,(I consider these spoons),fireeye minnow,ivans smasher,do jigger,kastmaster,buckshot rattle.Just to name a few.Like all fishing lures spoons have their place and allot of times the fish are looking for something else!!!!!I'm always surprised at "new"presentations folks are catching with!!!!Have fun don't fall in!!!!!c63

I use spoons for walleyes, perch, and crappies. On occasion I will use tiny spoons for gills as well. If fishing for panfish I usually load them up with spikes, sometimes small minnow heads.

My favorite spoons are buckshot spoons, slender spoons, and macho minnows.

I have only had success with small spoons for panfish. Game fish I would starve on what I caught on spoons.

I use larger spoons for eyes and sauger regularly. Medium-sized buckshots are my go to, but I also use holey angels, kastmasters and other larger spoons with a good fluttering action. Always tipped with a minnow head.

I use small spoons almost exclusively for panfish. Unless the bit is really negative, I use small buckshots, small frostees, and a few other kinds of small spoons tipped with spikes or waxees.

do you rig them on swivels? I have heard this prevents a lit of line problems. just wondering what you all think.

I use a crane or barrel swivel tied to as long as possible 6# flouro leader where I can still hook my spoon to the rods bait keeper with-out having the swivel go through the first eye lid.

I love jigging spoons

For walleyes that's just about all I use is spoons. Won't even have a second line down. I tie direct to spoon. Tip with minnow head and good to go.

Panfish I do ocassianly but have good confidence with plastics so use them most of time.
