I finally took the plunge and used a spoon for gills. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I had hits on almost every cast. I was fishing below a spillway at the lake where I live. I tipped the BF spoon with a butterworm and had a blast. I learned about this site and the spoons from Mod. I also had a few crappie, but the gills killed the thing. I have a couple pictures on my phone and will attempt to post later. I had two humpheads to boot!
