flutter spoon

Recommended Posts

i have been watching some fishing shows recently and they have been mentioning flutter spoons or fluttering spoons.

would anyone have an idea of what kind of spoon they are using?  I have searched flutter spoon as well as fluttering spoon at BPS and the search comes up empty.

Im thinking that this type of spoon would be great in winter time.

could anyone post a link to where i can find this type of spoon?

Lots of cheaper stamped spoons as one travels north.  These don't sink very fast, and many weigh in the lighter weight class. Sometimes you can fish these as a casting spoon. They are often shaped about like a daredevle spoon in brass or silver and they will catch fish. Might want to put on a better quality hook, and add a swivel.

Basswishes.com has the rights to manufacture the old Dixie Jet spoon which may fit your needs. It was a popular jigging spoon from yesteryear, but don't know if they are producing any as yet. The Johnson sprite is another spoon which may fit your needs, but I'm not sure if they are available either.

does anyone know if they make a FLUTTER spoon 1/4-3/8oz in weight?

You can buy lightweight flutter spoon blanks at Barlows Tackle - you can google it to get their website.  You'll have to add split rings and hook, but you can build your own for about 2-3$.  Jann's Netcraft also had spoon blanks, heavier than the ones at Barlow's.  You can build your own and save yourself some $$$.  And yes they do work.

I do buy more expensive spoons on occasion but my mainstay spoons are generics I buy at my local tackle shop for about $2.50.  I actually like the movement from them best of all, but in reality it doesn't make all that much difference to the fish.  There is a time and place for each type of spoon and I do use several types depending on the wind or if I want more penetration into the water ( Mepps cyclops).  Before use I apply a couple of coats of clear nail polish, aids in rust prevention.  50% of my fish are spoon fed.

Another good place for spoon blanks is lurepartsonline (Stamina tackle) for building your own. I would never spend 6 or 7 bucks for one - especially one that doesn't even have a dressed treble!

My dressed hooks always get discolored badly, I don' t keep them separate.  When it's hook replacement time I seldom put a dressed hook back on, I say hooks instead of treble as I do prefer a single hook ( siwash) on my spoons.  As far as nail polish, it isn't needed on all spoons, I just know from experience which ones to put the polish on.  Toothpaste is an excellent cleaner for spoons, especially for freshwater ones, Brasso sometimes removes too much of the plating.
