Seen these threads before but curious to see what spoons were putting fish in the boat this year.  My best producers were Spooperfly Blue Dolphin followed by Cracked Ice.  Orange crush and R and R special did a decent amount of damage too.

Top spoons for me this past season were: moonshine sand burr, silverstreak slimeball, silver streak snowball, and the dreamweaver orange leopard, green leopard, and blue leopard.

I don't have a favorite spoon or even a couple of favorites.   I have a Plano box filled with spoons that I call the hammer box.  I have hundreds of spoons and I wanted a way to improve the efficiency of what spoons to use in my set up.  

How does a spoon make it into the hammer Box?  When a particular spoon in my spread for that day obviously outperforms the other spoons that spoon finds its way into the hammer box.  It may take numerous trips to fill a hammer box but I think it's worth it to keep track of those special spoons.  I have used several identical spoons at the same time in the same positions in my set ups but only one might make it into the hammer box.

This tells me there is more to it than a style or brand or even identical colors and patterns that makes some spoons just hot.  I almost cry when I lose a spoon from the hammer box.

With enough time I placed enough spoons in my hammer box to cover early morning, early in the season, later in the day, later in the year, fast, slow, and colors to match the species I am chasing.

I still have lots of extra spoons that are not in the hammer box.  I try to run one or two of them in the spread .  Occasionally,  one of those spoons makes its way into the hammer.  

I guess I need a hammer fly box that does the same thing.  I tie my own and I have way too many.  This would improve their efficiency also.

Have a great Day! Shellfish

Any moonshine magnum was good this year, literally any color on any given day,  there was not one that really outproduced other than in short 2 hour spurts, but I own over 80 and every one caught fish this year.

It would be helpful if you could include a picture or manufacturer of the spoons. Each mfg calls it something different, so it can be tough to look up online. Thanks.

As for me, I didn't have a spoon color that stood out as better than the rest.

Hey Svitreum sent you a pm. Would like to pay you back for your advice and ask for more out of Kenosha. Let me know if you have a Sunday open. Just show up with your tackle weather permitting? BTW, inland trout should be starting in couple weeks. Keep it up!Jeffg

Definitely have to agree with Svetreum on the Moonshine RV. Dancing Anchovie and Mongolian Beef were my top 2 then blue knight in blue glow, and stinger blue dolphin.

Moonshine RV spoons were outstanding along with Warrior Blue Knight. Stinger stingray spoons with orange for the steelies too!!
