How to Fish a Pinhead Pro Spoon
Micro spoons can be incredibly effect when targeting panfish. They offer a larger profile which big bluegills and crappies favor. You can fish them fast and they are one of the best presentations to hole hop with.
New this year to the ice fishing world is the Clam Pinhead Pro.
The Clam Pinhead Pro is made out of Zinc Alloy which provides great detail and a unique flash in the water. It comes in a variety of different sizes from 1/32 ounce up to 1/4 ounce and they offer a bunch of great colors.
It also has a flapper blade next to the treble hook that adds extra noise and flash under the ice.
Because of this spoons action and flash it can be incredibly effective without live bait.
Instead of pounding it on the spot, you’ll want to swim it. By swimming the Pinhead Pro you’ll be able to get the most action out of it.
Mix up your jigging cadence by adding small hops and shakes to make the flapper blade dance and give off flash in the water.
When fish approach, slowly lift the spoon up while continuing to make small hops and jumps. The real key is to always keep the spoon moving.
If you keep the pinhead pro spoon on the move you’ll be amazed how effect this micro spoon can be without bait.
