Lindy Rattl'n Flyer Spoon

63 posts in this topic

With the water temps dropping rapidly in the past few days, the presentation has turned to a slower and more vertical one. I thought it might be a perfect time to try out the new Rattl'n Flyer Spoon by Lindy.

The Rattl'n Flyer Spoon is a lethal break-through jigging spoon hybrid! This new spooner's delight adds Lindy's traditional Flyer's long-proven gliding design to the popular vertical jigging spoon concept—with six fantastic color choices and an extra-loud attention-grabbing brass rattle.

Non-lead alloy construction gives the Rattl'n Flyer Spoon perfect weight balance. It's light enough to shimmer, dance, dart, or fly; yet heavy enough for the "feel" and downward momentum skilled spooners prefer. No need to use a swivel as this spoon does not spin on the "drop"! This active lure is a free spirit that still obeys rod-tip commands!

All sizes and colors feature Bleeding Bait round-bend red treble hooks, holographic/foil finish with lifelike preyfish scale pattern, and irresistible Techni-Glo eyes!

Best of all, the fish like em! grin

I picked a few different ones up for Ice fishing. Glad they have the DTro seal of approval, nice eye! Did you tip it with a minnow or a head, or just leave it bare?

I caught that last night on the river and I was using a whole live fathead on the spoon.

We put them to a serious test up on Devils Lake in March of this year while fishing with Jason Mitchell and a large crew from around the region.

In a group of 11 we all easily caught at least one limit of walleye and pike, likely several limits as it was on a roll and we C&R a lot of fish. Heck I did 37 pike by noon on one day and 9 walleye myself, many more that afternoon and the fallowing day.

I kept 2 Jason Mitchell Elite Series rods rigged and ready, one with a Salmo Chubby Darter, and the other a Rattl'n Flyer Spoon. If they snubbed one, the other got them to go.

I'll be keeping a few handy this season you can count on that.

I pack both the glow red and the gold whenever I make my journey to Lake of the Woods. It is one of the pure must haves for me up there. Great action, and great sound, equal great fish!

Its My favorite jigging lure, hands down. mI recently picked up the new, super small size to try. the second smallest size was the ticket for some monster perch last year.

Nice job with the Rattl'n Flyer Spoon Darren.

I'll be giving them a go this winter for eyes and lake trout.

I can't help notice you have an nice hook just off the bottom on your sounder.

They worked great on Vermilion for walleyes and perch!

I caught a mixed limit of brookies and rainbows one day last winter using the 1/8oz. gold Flyer, with no bait at all on it!!

Looking to give these a serious try this year in clear water. Those flash/glide baits have worked well for me in the past esp. in clear water situations. Add the rattle and you've got about as all-purpose of a bait I can think of!

I think the largest offering is only 1/4 oz...I hoping/wishing that they'll come out with a larger 1/2 - 3/4 oz size.

Ordered the 1/16th and 3/16th oz. kits from BPS they had the best price I could find. Each kit had 6 spoons for $19.99.

The Lindy Rattl'n Flyer is an awesome spoon! The 1/16th they came out with this year will be a killer for jumbo perch and the more tentative eyes!

Also, watch for the Original Viking spoons coming out soon by Lindy as well. I got a few in from Lindy and they have a pretty cool action as well. They are mainly billed for open water casting, trolling and vertical jigging, but I am confident that they will find a place in my ice tackle box as well.

Welcome to the FM/HSO/IL Dave. Good to know about the new jig. Yes, those Flyer jigs do look awesome and I will be using some as soon as I get on the ice.

I can't wait to try them out for some of those legendary 3 lbers over in the U.P. later this year!

Yep! Don't count them out for smaller pannies either. I used them tipped with 2 waxies last weekend for gills... Caught about a dozen gills in a pretty short time, largest pushing 10 inches. they might seem like a large spoon for panfishing, but put them to the test and you will become a believer. Don't take my word for it... try it yourself.

The Rattl'n Flyer, hands down, does damage for on ice duty!!

Have fished them since their proto-type stage,and have caught lots o fish on these bad boys..

The new 1/16 ounce, like Dave said, is killer on 'gills and crappies. They love the flash of the holographic color. If times get tough, run a smaller chain dropper of the spoon and tack on one or two euro.

Glad to see Lindy on board here. Great products for both ice and open water presentations.

Is there a better/best way to fish them?

Here is what I prefer:

Hard Jig... Pause and wait for the spoon to settle direct center (lure will flutter out to about 3 feet from center of the hole). Lite finesse jigging for about 5 seconds... pause again. If I mark anything, I will pull up slowely to begin the chase by raising the lure up. I will add some finesse jigging a bit while raising as well. I will repeat the hard jig, pause, 5 second finesse jigging, pause, about 3 cycles of this. If nothing is marked, I will move on to the next hole.

I will also add... the above technique is what I start with... You really need to watch your electronics and let the FISH decide what presentation they are looking for. If fish scatter after the pause... you may want to continue the finesse jigging. You have to pay close attention to what is attracting those fish in.

This jig will be my first jig to try when I get out on the ice for some eye action. Kind of like a little kid in a candy store with this one as it looks to be an awesome eye cacther.

Thanks for the tips Dave

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
