Had success with Gills on three style spoons tipped with crawler chunks yesterday .Hus Lure , Kastmaster and Super Duper all caught Gills .
Yes Badger the Acme company also discontinued another of their successful ( for me ) baits, the Shad King Flutter spoon . It was a a real fine April lure when the Bass first start hitting decently .The small size Fjord spoon would be great for Gills I feel .I did once catch a 13" rainbow Trout on one a long time ago .
John: I had the same thought about the Acme Fjord spoon. Unfortunately Acme stopped making them. I have some of the Fjord Jr. and the tiny size Fjord spoons. I have had success on trout and panfish with them.
Anyone know where I can get Acme 'Fiord' Spoons?The smallest sizes should work great on Gills as they have a slender profile like the Blue fox Rattlin' Flash spoons .
sounds great Allen .Glad you joined Musky Mods group here !
I have size 3 Colorado blades in both diamond-pattern chartreuse, and hammered copper. I use both of these for my own in-line spinners. I put an 8mm chartreuse bead on the spinner's shaft as well. I also dress my own trebles.The in-line spinner I did this past Spring (actually two, lost one of them to a fish), with a copper Colorado, chartreuse bead, and green-dressed treble caught HORDES of aggressive 'gills and hungry LMB's.
Thanks Dick ,Chartreuse Blades worked well on Smallies on the Delaware River when it was muddied by rain . Copper and Chartreuse are both worth having .
John fishing muddy water can sometimes be overwhelming. Nothing more frustrating than trying to fish muddy water. It's a trial and error thing. What works in clear water often does not work in muddy waters. This is the time when we go to colors and vibration. John I have always had good luck with copper colored blades in muddy water. You will find Colorado blades to be a little better because they give off more vibration. So now you have the color of the blade with added vibration which helps in the fish catching process. I usually get my blades at net craft. They usually have a pretty fair selection. Hope this helps you in your thinking process it's something I've learned over the years and use it often.
Another good visual idea would be a big Chartreuse bead .You're getting me thinking Dick, thanks!
You are right Dick. Copper is a better choice in muddy water .I don't think I have any panfish sized Copper so I'll look out for them .I have Bass sized Copper Blades I switch out on Spinnerbaits but they are BIG!
