3. Spoon Fishing
Another old school technique that is sometimes neglected is swinging BC steel spoons. Jake says, “I love to swing spoons in virtually all water clarity. You only need to change colors to match the condition.”
In green water with one to four feet clarity, Jake fishes 2/5-ounce matte silver, 50/50 silver/gold. If the flows are heavy enough to dictate it, he stacks two 1/4 ounce spoons on top of each other with split rings. The stacked spoons are great for heavier and faster water flow to keep your spoon wobbling correctly. As the water clears and gets from four to eight feet clarity, switch over to 2/5-ounce copper, black or brass spoons.
For best results, cast slightly downstream and give the spoon time to sink. Allow it to swing across the current while maintaining a constant wobble of three beats per second.
