Put an inline sinker ahead of it, or even a split shot or two, about a foot or two or three ahead of it. With spoons you might want to consider using two swivels, or a snap-swivel and also a leader with a swivel. They can twist pretty good if speed gets them spinning all the way around.

Good luck! My fav spoon is a MN Vikings one my Grandson gave me, always is good for some pike smile

You may have salmon spoons. They are a lot lighter and you have to have a way to get them down other than their own weight. They are not meant for Northern Pike type of speeds.

You want to go and find some original Daredevils. You can feel the weight. Probably about 5/8 to 3/4 oz. in a 3" spoon.

    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite. 
    • Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.
    • Clover and Rye plots are coming in awesome and the deer are all over them. One of the bean plots also has not had a chance to grow deer just eat as they grow. Working either way they are getting food and staying around.   Clover ,Rye is all around the beans and corn.
    • Just thought I would post some pictures of this years food plots. Summer is going way too fast , I want it to be bow season right now but still some work left to do. All plots are done now and we can start getting trails and shooting lanes cleared.  
    • the peppers are a thia chili pepper, and yes i put 4-5 pieces of garlic in each jar along with sliced onions!!!!!!!!! i used to put 6 peppers in but in my older age that got to be to much so i cut it back to 4. i would think Jalepenos would work though!!!!!
