Freedom Tackle Corp manager Tom Chopin posted a new video the other day. Watch the minnow spoon take down the smallmouth bass of Lake Erie. Tom shows us how the slow horizontal fall was key for getting bit. Fish were hitting it as it fluttered down instead of picking it up off bottom like a traditional jigging spoon. Finesse Jigging Spoon for wary fish. You could tell it’s a wary fish by how it’s barely hooked in the corner of the mouth.
I’ve used the minnow spoons for smallmouth bass across the north also, and they work very well for vertical jigging applications just like this.
