    Re: do you use spoons?

    For Williams spoons(pretty much all I use and very productive) I usually buy them at Cabalas, I do almost all my other shopping at Bass Pro but they do not carry Williams! :angry2: Also Jon is right, no tackle box should be without the Johnson Silver Minnow with a 3-4" curly tail, great for getting into the deep weeds where the big fish like to stay cool in warm weather or middle of the day-also its pretty much weedless.

    As far as time of day goes, I believe Pike are always ready to feed. If you are only catching them in morning/evening-maybe try a little deeper during the midday. Work the outskirts of where they where, and sometimes concentrate on slower deeper presentations. Up in NW Ontario we have never noticed any difference in time of day for catching Pike, Walleye on the other hand seem to congregate more in the mornings/evenings.

    Re: do you use spoons?

    thanks guys, I'll see if I can find myself some of the lures mentioned above ^^

    I think im starting to get the hang of this "cast" fishing... I've gotta say its very different from fishing with live bait,

    Johnson Silver minnow and Dardvl spoons have produced some nice pike for me in the past - definetly good lures to invest in!

    Re: do you use spoons?

    If anyone has heard of them, I find the Nasty girl spoons are incredible for anything that swims.

    Last weekend, I fished teh Deseronto Yacht Club derby. Gave up on walleye on the Quinte and started fishing pike. I came in first for pike, my Dad 2nd for walleye. I was using it but also caught bass and a dog fish over 10lbs.

    I've seen Nasty boy spooons at CTC but they're too light and more for riggers. My buddy contacted the company and they were discontinued so he bought all that they had in stock. Unfortunately, I'm down to my last 3 but if you ever see them, they're by far the best spoon I've ever used.

    I think what sets them apart are holes drilled thru the centre of the spoon...maybe causes a different vibration and sound.

    cheers

    Re: do you use spoons?

    You might be on to something there (as everyone just gets a drill out and modifies the spoons they already have!)

    Re: do you use spoons?

    I had one something like that about 5 years ago.. it looked like chrome 5 of diamonds, but the diamonds were the cut outs.. lure was about 2 inch in length.. was fishing Brighton Bay when I lost it.. Didn't even have a chance to see the fish it just ran and I snaped the line before he peeled my reel!! Im thinking a big pike/musky.. I was only running 8lb line and was fishing for bass. It worked awsome for bass and bows.

    I've seen them (nasty boy spoon) at my tiny local fishing store... I've gotta say they're pretty thin and lightweight and its used for rigging (can't cast them more than 20 feet :sorry. The holes drilled in them are pretty weird... They dont really wobble or spin as much as other spoons cause the water would just rush through the holes, but I guess thats what they're meant to do right?

    mmMMmmm... bet that fish tastes good!

    Re: do you use spoons?

    Hey araret,

    You're right...the NB are for rigging. Way too light to cast and retrieve with.

    If you do ever see the NG, scoop them up and you'll be glad you did. I'm still searching for more but have exhausted all tackle shops around my area.

    Cheers
