Do spoon lures work for bass?
Jigging spoons and their intense flash are great for lethargic bass. When they aren’t actively feeding or chasing down baitfish, a jigging spoon is a nice downsized option. They still create the flash, rumble, and distraction like a flutter spoon, just at a lower rate. They are also best fished vertically.
What are spoon lures best for?

Jigging spoons in lakes can be an extremely effective technique that will often catch far more trout than the commonly used straight, unvaried retrieve. This is because trout are predators, especially the larger, trophy-sized ones.
Are spoon lures supposed to spin?
As the lure approaches you, note what it is doing underwater and couple that with the rod tip vibrations and the “feel” you are getting. A spoon should swim with a side-to-side wobble while a spinner should have a constantly-revolving blade. If your spoon is spinning, you are reeling too fast.

Should I use snaps on crankbaits?
To help keep lures in tune and catching fish, use a loop knot or small round snap to attach the lure to the fishing line.
