WHITEFISH ? I used in it Canada last year in Ontario and Saskatchewan and both places the pike loved this spoon. They hit this better than my other spoons so eventually got smart and just used it. This spoon helped catch the largest pike I have seen so I'm hooked on it's design. Rate it right up there with some of the all time classic lures for pike and walleye.

The Whitefish offers an impressive variety of weights, sizes and finishes allowing you to match the size and color of prey larger predators are feeding on. One of the many assets of the Whitefish is its versatility. Ideal for trolling and casting. Size C60 is an excellent jigging spoon on open or hard waters. The size C70 at 4?" is a perfect imitation of most mature baitfish species. The larger C80 and C90 sizes are popular great lakes salmon lures as well as proven big lake trout and northern pike favorites. They are regularly used as bait or smaller attractors or dodgers. Their unique shape offers less resistance and the brilliant flash of the precious metal finish attracts fish from greater distances.

Red/yellow/white is a great color combo for northerns.

Let me point out though in my experience when yellow is working it's the best but sometimes, don't really know why, fish absolutely shun yellow. So be advised better have some that are only red/white in your box in case that happens.

Another good tip on spoons is a red treble with a bucktail on it replacing the factory hook will increase strikes and hook ups tremendously. Almost all factory hooks are JUNK. Go at least one size bigger than the factory hook. Trust me, red hooks WORK they absolutely aren't just a marketing gimmick.

Leo most factory hooks are junk no question and I would bet the red hook thing works but I haven't tested it.

Leo what make of treble hooks would you go with in a 5/0 or 6/0 hook? The ones on these spoons are around a 4/0 hook.

I carry 2 of them in my tackle box at all times. When I lose one, it is replaced as soon as I get back to civilization. I use the big silver ones that are 6" long, and they work well. Try the redheaded Rapala's as well, and the perch pattern. You won't be disappointed.

I'd say marks photos from canada show the williams spoons did pretty good for him :)

I should have stuck with them longer, I was using weedless spoons with twister tails on them.

These two spoons I used most on the last day and what Bruce is referring to. I replaced the original silver steel hooks with the red ones Like leo suggested and you can see the red has been roughed up quiet abit by the hunt for big fish.

Hey Rowdy, red hooks sure seem to work for me also. I have them on all of my spoons and most of my crankbaits. I like to use them for panfish with wax worms and minnows. I always put them on the spoons that I put together too.
