I guess Joe, but I added it more for the vibration thinking in muddy water gills could locate it easier.I usually throw small spinners for gills in high muddy conditions but like the spoon for its ability to take it down to the fish ...gonna start using this more and see if the combo has its day

Hit one of the better deep waters this morning for some gills.Not in the cards for me today.I know where they are and it's just a matter of time before I get it right. Used a 1/10 and 1/5 oz swede with a little wax silver or copper color.I have some random success with the spoons so far but am confident it will come.I have been using small hops in the deep but will add the drag.I think I will have to make a trip to bass pro to try and find a few more color options.
My best success with this method so far has been shallow water weed top ticking, pretty much ever thing hammered it, in this type of location. I think the deep bite may be a more subtle hit. Time to try for some Lake perch. May all your lines be taut,and your pans filled with grease and sounds of the sweet fry.

After all this rain here in NE New Jersey I decided to add this little spinner to my spoon presentation...works good casting and retrieving slow.

Bill, Do you switch out the hooks that come with the Swedish Pimples with the #6 O'Shaughnessy on your rig example? If so, why? Do the gills take the single hook better then the treble? I checked the Duolock snaps on the Cabelas website in black. Many folks who bought them were very unpleased with the results. Others thought they were great. Think I'll look around on these things.

Bill, I totally agree....these things are always easier to say than do. However, it might start small and then increase in numbers. We would need to consider the proximity of lodging, restaurants, bait shops, etc. That being said, we should give it a shot. If held in Wisconsin, I believe the Dept. of Natural Resources has recently increased rules related to tournaments. I haven't researched the laws to see if they include panfish, etc. I need to do that if we target Wisconsin water.

I am on vacation this week. Currently, I am in Prairie du Chien, WI and my hotel is right next door to Cabela's. I went in there last night hoping to buy the hooks and snaps you recommend for spoon fishing. They were sold out of smaller snaps and they didn't have the Mustad hooks you recommended. I ran out of time so I'll head back there later today to look for other brands in that size/style. Beautiful country up here. We took the bridge over into Iowa and saw some guys fishing some backwaters. My wife told me to keep my eyes on the road!!

blackhawks, that sounds like a great idea!.....problem is the groups demagraphic diversity. If we could find enough members to participate in something like this I would like for it to happen on strange water, Rock lake in Jefferson co. WI might be a good location....I hear big gills swim there, and locals regularly finesse the deep water.....it's just itchin' to get spooned, but I'm up for any suggestions, and willing to travel.....meeting some BBG members on this type of stage would be a blast.......If anybodys got any ideas, shout them out!
