You have it right Doug....Kastmasters are probably the most confusing when it comes to determining what side rides down.....The stamp always rides down so the fish can see the name of the spoon...:)

I'm having some success this spring with spoons. It's a blast fishing this way Thanks everyone. I'm having a little confusion with setting up my Kastmaster rig. Which side of the Kastmaster rides up, the side with the writing or the side without the writing. The way I currently have it set is with the writing down and the hooks being up facing the side without the writing.

59 degrees was the surface temp yesterday.

Millhouse Bayou in Grand Haven, MI

I don't know where to get the surface temp without going down there myself (I live about 1/2 hour away, but will most likely be going there tomorrow). I'll hook you up with that info as soon as I can.

Feel free to suggest other areas too. Millhouse is just very convenient to fish. My folks live right on the bayou and have a 14' rowboat that my brother and I have access to.

Craig, I need to know what state the lake is located in, and what  the current surface temp is before I can send you in the right direction...

Comment by Craig DuShane on April 16, 2012 at 2:04pm

Whoops, I guess it will have to be next time then. I'll just try to be careful with it.

Any chance a how to/where to tutorial/instructional YouTube video might be in the works? Hopefully with answers to questions like...

-If you were on a new to you small lake/bayou with a maximum depth of 18 feet just at the very middle (and very heavily weedy almost everywhere else), how would you locate the fish you're targeting with your spoons? Would you just troll along the drop off/weed edge casting into spots that look like they might produce fish, or do you cruise along zigzagging over the middle with a depth/fish finder trying to locate a big school to target somewhere first? So basically just how do you find the fish.

-What's the proper way to retrieve the spoon after casting? Is it a different method for different depths of water?

These seem like the biggest pieces of the puzzle to me and would love to get more specifics. I just ordered the 2012 Panfish Guide and May 2011 In-Fisherman issues, so maybe some of that will be covered there in more detail. Heck, I'd even let you shoot your video(s) on the bayous I fish on!

By the way, thank you very much for sharing all this with us.

I find Power Pro to be too limp....it wraps around my rod tip often...1lb dia will work fine
