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

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
