Has anyone used Custom Jig & Spins RPM (Rotating Power Minnow)?  I picked up one in the Red Glow Tiger color in size 3 (1/4 ounce - 2") and one if their Slender Spoons - Pro Series in 1/16 ounce Nickle/Pink Tiger.    I was wondering how well they worked and if there were any tips for using them.  They look pretty good but we all know looking good and working well can be two different things.

I have a couple of the power minnows,  but I  have not had any luck with them yet.  In fairness,  I have not used them a whole lot so I  honestly can't say if they work or not.

Slender spoons on the other hand absolutely work.  I  always have a  pole rigged with one.  Crappies,  gills, and  perch, and northern love them.

What size Slender Spoons do you use and is there a must have color?

I have used the slender spoon and have caught a lot of fish on it.  The 1/8 size is versatile for all species and I think it has the best flutter while also having enough weight to get down the hole.  I have used the 1/4 some but my best is the 1/8.  all colors have produced from plain gold or silver with different tapes to the pro series that are painted

I used both for the first time this past winter, had luck with both! I'd recommend them!

i use 1/16 oz slender spoon only and tip it with spikes. it is not my go to lure. it's a back up plan when nothing else works or to try to get fish to my area. it walks away from the sonar cone too much also and if you have a camera down it can get caught up in it.

i target pan fish only tho. fish see different colors every day. so one color may work well on one day but not the next. my go to color in lures is gold for day time and blue glow for night time.

What are you targeting?

They are great spoon for anything from panfish, to walleye to trout.

For panfish, I use the 1/16oz slender spoons quite a bit. Either with a gold or nickel/chrome finish depending on the water I'm fishing. One thing I do is remove the small treble hook and replace it with a Shrimpo jig and plastic. I found that there are times when a smaller bluegill will get all 3 of the hooks from the treble in its mouth, this can be challenging to remove without damaging the fishes mouth

For perch and walleyes, I prefer the 1/8oz size spoon and leave the treble hook as is

The slender spoons have a great action to them. I've caught quite a few Lakers and my 1st steelhead on the largest spoon.

I use mostly the 1/16 oz.  My go to colors are chartreuse, and gold, or red and gold.

On the drop, the spoon does go outside the flasher cone, but once it reaches the desired depth, it comes back into the cone. I usually use subtle jigging strokes so the spoon does not get beyond the cone, and I don't have issues with it tangling up.

Slender spoon is a fish catching machine.  I pounded the fish the first time I used the smallest slender spoon in chartreuse/gold on crappies ... the 1/8 size I have caught perch and walleye on.  Fishusa.com has a sale on slender spoons in custom colors..
