Where to fish it?
The Buster Spoon can be fished in a variety of different ways. You can either choose to cast it out and let it sink to the bottom and then fish it back in a jigging motion with your rod tip. You can also choose to cast it out, and retrieve it on a moderate to slow speed, let it dartle around in the water like a wounded baitfish. Or just plain simple troll it on a flat line or planer board behind your boat. The Buster Spoon runs, depending on the diameter of your line, between 3 and 6 feet (1,8m). If you want to fish deeper water, you can attach a small sinker on the front end of the splitring that it comes with, or simply use a bottom bouncer to make it run down any desired depth. The possibilities are endless! All in all the StrikePro Buster Spoon is a very versatile lure that can be used all year round but excels in the Winter and Spring when members of the Esox family feed on smaller baits. Try one out, I’m sure it won’t disappoint!
