Spoon Question

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, I watched an episode of Inn Fisherman during which they were spoon fishing with a spoon (it looked like a silver Dardevle) that had a "clacker" or "ticker" added to the front of it. The clacker was a short piece of wire maybe 1 1/2" or 2" long with glass and brass beads designed to tap against each other creating a tapping or rattling sound as the lure moved through the water. They caught northern pike, walleye and smallmouth bass (of course they always catch fish on these shows). It looked like a good idea and I was wondering if anyone had used a clacker on spoons like the Williams Wabler, Dardevle, Lucky Strike Half Wave, etc. and might have some advise.

Years ago dad and I used a spoon with red bead like you described. They were silver or brass. The bead was located inline with the hole that you would tie the line to. It was called Red Eye Spoon, but I don't remember who made it

Some times after a night of too much drinking, I make myself a red eye. I am not sure if the fish would likt them or not, but it is worth a try.
