You are using the frostee spoons, not the frostee jigs? I'm intrigued, I haven't come across a thread where anyone mentioned putting plastics on a spoon, just tipping with minnow heads or perch eyes. Is this common? How's it work compared to tipping with minnow heads or perch eyes?

Yep using spoons. Figure I'd give the fish something different to look at!

I really like using spoons for gills they get deep fast and often wondered about using plastics on them...I replace the treble with a single hook and use wax worms...sure plastics would work!?!?

The one good thing about plastics is that you don't need to use all of it. Generally only use a piece only big enough to get the size and shape of whatever is being imitated

You need to be a bit more selective with your plastics on spoons...also depends on spoon type. 

A rattle'n flyer spoon may have a different action or starts to loop spin with plastic attached to it.  Whereas a buckshot spoon, wouldn't matter.

For more information read my MN nice journal

On the business end of things, Boshold remains steadfast on jig selection, although even here, he wanders from the crowd. “My favorite approach is to go ‘vertizontal,’” he quips, with a sly grin. “I’ll often tie up a vertical jig, such as a Northland Live Forage Minnow Jig, and then dress the hook with a micro plastic bait rigged horizontally. When you rig a vertical jig this way, it swims to the side on the drop. When you engage the bail and stop its decent, the combo pendulums and swings back toward center, which triggers big panfish like no other motion I’ve found.”

Great for minnow heads no bait snatching

nope, I just use meat on my spoons. Small spoons get maggots, oak grubs or waxies. Bigger spoons I put on waxies or minnow heads. If I'm fishing for trout I will sometimes use mealies on my spoons. Whatever, if I'm fishing spoons, they are tipped with meat.

This is my exact go to for crappie....no8 hook northland forage minnow jig in super glow chub, stacked with 4-6 waxies to produce the same flutter and pendulum action described. Pound it with 2-6" jigging motions to make it flutter. Crappie kill this jig all season

i'll sometimes replace the treble with a single hook and thread a 1" or 2" plastic minnow on there. works pretty well on the bluegill and i've found that i usually catch larger fish on that.

Plastic on spoons all the time. Leave the treble on, thread the plastic on the barb lined up with the face of the spoon. Spoon vertical, plastic horizontal. Killer combo.
