I have heard about using small spoons for crappie and bought a shad king 1/32 oz spoon by hildebrandt a few days ago. It swims good and flutters great on the drop. I have also seen a website that has tiny spoons. They say icefisherman can use them too. Looks like to me you could make these spoons from small willow leaf blades. Anyways, does anyone fish with these spoons and whats your favorite way to fish them?

I tie a piece of line about 10 inches long on the bend of my hook and to my spoon and slow troll them..... works great.. I make my own spoons you do exactly as you say. But you have to use gold hooks for the soldier to stick...

Look in the archives. I have a few threads there on how to solder them and fish them.

I've used them quite a bit too with good luck on all types of fish. On a side note, what exactly is something like a Rooster Tail? Spoon or is it called something else? They are one of my favorite hard baits to throw...

F.Y.I.: The June issue of In'Fisherman has an article dedicated to "Spooning for Panfish".

Are you using the spoon as a trailer on a jig??

I guess one would call these micro spoons given their size

I usually troll them back and forth along a dock or fishing pier, pretty good results with bluegills. no crappie though.

I guess i don't have any micro-spoons, lol. I wonder how small the hook is then? Anyone know a good brand that sells micro spoons?

I have never used them, but there is a member here in Pennsylvania who talks about using them a lot. He even offers to give a few to fellow boaters that catch him on a lake. Check the Pennsylvania state forum and look for posts from chaunc or send him a pm. I am sure he can help.

CC, i'm on the pro-staff of Microspoons.com. They make panfish size spoons that work very well. They can be fished a variety of ways too. Lots of colors and sizes to fit almost every need. If you'd like to know more about them, visit their website. Home - Micro Spoons & Jigs (http://www.microspoons.com)
