Well from what I've gathered Jason, you tie one on and drop it in the water a ways, grab an oar and proceed to slap the little fish away from it that you don't want to catch. Then just pull in the big ones until you get too tired for any more.
At least, that's how I'm planning to use mine. ;^)

YESTERDAY WAS WINDY ON MY LAKE. i HAD TO ADD SPLIT SHOT TO MY LINE IN ORDER TO FEEL THE WEIGHT ON THE END OF MY LINE. I FISHED THE SPOON JUST LIKE I WOULD A JIG. LET IT DOWN TO THE DESIRED DEPTH AND MOVE IT AROUND SLIGHTLY. THE FISH SEEM TO HIT THE SPOON HARDER THAN A JIG. MOST OF MY HITS CAME ON THE FALL, SO KEEP A TIGHT LINE ON THE FALL.

you will catch all sizes on the spoon, just as you would on a jig. the spoon is not the tool for all occasions, but fished in various ways can be as productive as a jig. I think adding a minnow to the spoon reduces the action on the fall, so i do not tip with a minnow. they work with crappie nibbles, though. the fish seem to hold the spoon longer if you put nibbles on them, and they don't affect the "flutter" action as much as a minnow.

I have used them by casting a short distance over sunken brush and use a slow (slow) retrieve back to the boat, much like you would a beetle spin type bait. hope this helps.:) :)

(and I quote)
"I am sure they will work for you, just fish them like a jig. lift um up, let um fall"

Personally, I'm going to experiment a little with mine .... when I get a chance to use them. ...... luck2ya ... cp :cool:
