This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in February of 2019. If you’re targeting any type of game fish that feeds on bait fish, a flashy spoon can be an effective strategy. For these species — from muskies and salmon to walleye and bluegill — the allure of what appears to be wounded prey is often too enticing to resist. These options will cater to a variety of approaches, whether you prefer a bright, fast-spinning lure or a reflective, slow wobbler. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 19, 2019:

Noted that the Goture Long are a nice value that come in a pack of 10, so it’s not the end of the world if you lose one on a broken line and have to swap in a new one. Included two options that may interest fishermen who like to incorporate sound into their strategy — the Sougayilang Baits and Acme KO Wobbler both generate noises that are effective in attracting fish.

4. Acme KO Wobbler

5. South Bend Kastaway

6. Nichols Flutter

7. South Bend Super

8. Aqua Dream WSOG

9. Sougayilang Tackle

10. Goture Long
