Dropper hooks on spoons? Why and how?
« on: Feb 12, 2017, 09:20 PM »
I'm new to the group but reading a few of the threads here recommending spoons and was wondering why the dropper chain or drop-hook was recommended and used? How do you guys do this?

Here's a video with a good explanation of how and why by Doug Stange.

sometimes they are attacted to the spoon but they are reluctant to bite, so the dropper or chain hangs just a bit lower and is tipped with a small spike, mousie or plastic bait witch is a nice little meal that they can inhale. I'm guessing that just a staight up spoon is to much bait for them and they want that small easy meal hanging in their face. Also works good for crappie and perch.
it's all fun and games till somebody looses a walleye!!

I have had good success with replacing the treble hook on a 1/16oz Slender Spoon with a #10 or #12 shrimpo jig with plastic tail. Jig it like a spoon to get it to flutter then jig it like a jig/plastic to get the bite
