A buddy and i are heading up there on friday and were wondering what type and color spoons would work for springs. We have fished roe and wool ties but never spoons so we have no idea what to use.
thanks Ray E
I've had some good luck with a Mepps Aglia 5/8 ounce "heavy weight", silver blade with a silver/blue body. Cast and retrieve, no float, although I go that route too. It managed to produce twice when the roe was running cold. :thumbup: Seems to give the fish something else to work with when the roe is thick in a run. Also amazing to see the steelie juveniles chasing down something 1/3 their size. :happy: Gotta say that the strike you get on the hardware is a little more exciting than waiting for your float!! As a sidenote, my only Thompson steelie was caught on a spoon with some blue on it, best fish fight of my life! ;D
