A spoon lure, in sport fishing, is an oblong, usually concave lure, usually made of metal or a shell, shaped like the bowl of a spoon. The spoon lure is mainly used to attract fish by reflecting light and moving randomly. Just by reeling in a spinner, you get the lure to provide the action that leads to a strike.
Spoons are very effective and versatile lures that will catch a wide variety of both freshwater and saltwater game fish! Anglers can cast, troll, or vertically fish spoons to catch fish. For the most part, spoons imitate wounded bait fish. They put out a lot of flash and vibration, mimicking a wounded and easy prey. Spoons can be used to cover the entire water column, from surface feeding fish to those right on the bottom.
