JIGGING SPOON QUESTION

5 posts in this topic

i would appreciate a little input on fishing jigging spoons am going to try to run up to winnie this weekend and i have never really messed with spoons alot.my main question is rigging and what most of you guys use for connecting to the spoon.i know some spoons are meant to be tied direct but what about the ones where you should use a split ring or snap or snapswivel? i was leaning towards a split ring just cause it seems like a little less (JUNK) to have hanging down there.any replies would be helpful.thanks

I have always used the quick snaps that you can get at most any tackle shop. They are just a small clip in the shape of a J the you can snap a lure on. 1 tip if always will crimp it a little with a pliers after I put it on so that it is tight and I don't have to worry about losing my lure. This allows you to change lures quickely without having to retie. If I am using a spoons that that done not have a swivel on it I use snap swivel. I agree the less stuff down there the better. However with spoons I don't think that it really matters. I want them to move around that is why I use a swivel otherwise you will be fighting twisted line.

I prefer a jigging spoon with a ring on top like the Glow Devils, it helps give the spoon more action. If the spoon doesn't have a ring on top use some type of snap. I do not use a swivel with jigging spoon because they seem to spin and twist your line either way. I do however, let the spoon unwind every time I bring it up. Don't forget the glow spoons. Maybe I will see ya on Winni this weekend, I will be there too! Scott Steil

From experience when using a swedish pimple without a split ring is not good. By the end of the day, your line (knot) around the lure will weaken and eventually break. I always use a split ring or a swivel. Sometimes the swivel will cause the lure and the line catch each other, then you have a little problem. But changing lures is a snap. White and Glow in the dark colors have worked well for me on Winnie.

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
