Molix Sneak Peek - Flutter Spoon
Mike Iaconelli gives you an exclusive sneak peek at a brand new concept lure from Molix - the flutter spoon!
Hey, Bass Resource fans. Mike Iaconelli back here at ICAST 2013 at the Molix booth. Usually, we do very new products that are being introduced to the public, but I want to do something a little bit different and give you teaser of something that's very prototype, something that we’re still in the process of figuring out and give you a little teaser on a bait that's going to be really hot for open water fishing and structure fishing.
And, everybody knows about the technique called deep flutter spoon technique, where they're taking these fluttering spoons and catching fish off of ledges, off of deeps drops, and schooling fish, using that very wide, fluttering spoon.
One of the problems with that spoon has always been the hook up ratio, the fact that it had one hook. You'd get a lot of bites on it and put maybe 50 or 60 percent of the fish in the boat. One of the amazing thing about working with Molix is they’re the best in the business with coming up with solutions to problems.
So, with all the baits we've designed, with the Lovr, the Lovr Buzz, the spinner baits, colors, they’re the best at designing cutting edge stuff. And so, here, I'm going to give you the first look, and this really is the first look, at a prototype structure spoon or, flutter spoon, that we're working on.
And, when you look at it, it really starts to look a lot different than a regular spoon. It almost has kind of a bug look to it, and it's got a scale pattern, natural eyes, and you can see that special cupped design of that spoon. And, that's going to give the spoon that very hard wobble, or flutter, as it falls.
But then, you’re going to see something that stands out like a sore thumb, and that's the addition of a second set of hooks. And that's the solution of the problem. So, we've got a hook on the bottom, like a lot of traditional flutter spoons, and then we've got a belly hook that actually lays flush against the body of the bait. So, it's not going to tangle with the hook, it's not going to be a nuisance around cover.
But, when that fish slaps at it, it's going to be two extra points in that fish’s mouth. You’re going to go from having a 60 percent ratio to a 90 or 100 percent hookup ratio. You add a Sampo swivel that's going to let that fish rotate a lot of other features and it's going to be amazing.
We've got a gold one and a silver one, but you're going to see a lot more. This is something that we're working on the rest of the year. When this comes up it's going to change the way you structure fish with the spoon. Mike Iaconelli here, ICAST 2013, to give you that special teaser. Bye.
