Nice!

 

Can anyone recommend a spoon/lure other then a Cleo, Moonshine or J13?

 

I'm looking to experiment.  I've been playing around with a Williams Trophy but no luck yet.

 

I have some Mepps Cyclops that I wanna try next.

Pump, I was going to recommend the Williams trophy, I'm using one this year too. For the last couple of years I've had luck with the Berkley Flicker Shad.

Gold/Orange Cleo.  I wont post where yet but I'll share with a vid later on.

I've seen people catch fish with the trophy but I find it very hard to cast.  Make sure you have the wind aiding you, I don't use this spoon when I gotta cast against the wind.

 

How heavy is the Flicker Shad?

 

Another lure I wanna try throwing are lipless cranks

The Flicker shad's not a very heavy bait. About the same as a shadRap of the same size. They have some weights to help with the cast, but it's not as good as a spoon. But they have a great action, are cheaper than Rapalas and come in quite a few colours.

I have a friend who makes his own spoons too.  He bought his spoons from a thrift store. 

 

Cleo's are getting expensive, I lost about 3 this season.

I thought it was a hen at first but it was a buck.

No way, the rim on the net must be hiding the snout. Nice looking anyway.

Thanks.  I'll have to check them out if I'm ever in the area.

I noticed with fresh fish, it's hard to tell sometimes.  The males would be still fresh from the lake with no curve on the snout.
