When I start fishing with a spoon you’ll notice that I’m not just using a minnow head and that I am actually using half of the body. I like to start out bigger and if that isn’t working I will then switch over to just the head of a minnow.
Today I am using a Northland Glo Shot Spoon. I am using the gold-colored spoon with a red glow stick. Some tweaks I like to make to my spoons include an upsized hook. I also prefer color hooks and in this spoons case, I used an upsized pink treble hook.
I also like adding a second split ring. This adds some action to the spoon and also helps with your hook up percentage. Now another I like to do and something that I do every time before dropping my bait down is test the action of the bait in the water.
By doing this I can see how my bait will react to different movements and I will also have an idea of how the bait is moving in front of the fish.
