Jigging Spoon (from the so called Do-It mold)

Jigging Spoon (from the so called Do-It mold)
Simply because I like new lures, I bought myself the so-called jigging spoon mold. I took the first one down to the jetty, dipped it in to see the action and with the 3rd lift I hooked the first legal sized brown I´ve seen since spring. Coincidential but impressive! Anyone uses this mold? I like a very small slab with a thump. The smallest shad spoon has been very productive on baltic sea rainbow escapees, and this one is even smaller. No need to mention I instantly dremeled a run-through-variant. Since the wire form is so wide, there is no problem running an extra notch without further modification. I also like that the mold already comes with extra space for swivels. Full bearing makes for great rotation.

Any reason why these will work better than Flutter Jig slabs ?

With no better option right now hit a spot with only dink trout yesterday and surprised that 4 - 10" dinks managed to get hooked up on the 1/4 size FJ.

Like you, I pour my slabs with tin and think the unpainted flash is a primary attractor.

Not saying it was better, I just like to try new stuff and wonder if somebody has some knowledge/experience to share.

I love the FJ as a single lure but it has its limitations. For instance, if you combine it with a sabiki rig - which is very popular over here - in order to target cod and herring at the same time, you will find that its delicate balance will easily be compromised by draging 5 other hooks behind. The shad spoon is doing a better job there.

I also like the idea of a flounder attractor in the 3/4oz range for deeper tubulent waters where the lightweight USD wobble jig won`t cut it.  We use to have a small venture cultivating a specialized stamped stainless steel spoon for that purpose. Unfortunately, as soon as the idea took off it was pressed out of the market by cheap industrial lead-poured knockoffs that performed poorly but people found easier to maintoan bottom contact with. The Shad Spoon as a run-through did well in that role, too, but a distinguished product with an even wider shape might be easier to communicate.

Hawn, I wont say its better than a flutterjig, but being much wider action will be decidedly different. I like them in reservoirs whereas the flutter jig performs better where you have current to contend with such as rivers.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the smallest size Do-it jigging spoon is 5/8 oz ?

Kdog, are you saying the wider jigging spoon has better action than the FJ in still water ?

RE: Jigging Spoon (from the so called Do-It mold)
exactly. It weights 11gr tin, compared to the 16gr of the smallest shad spoon. I tried the 1-3/8 lead today with the sabiki rig and as expected it wasn`t impressed at all by a full 6 hook rig, means it performed wonderfully with a nice action.

Kdog have you noticed any difference with respect to the direction? Is there a front and a rear end? I just paint them as they come.

Yhe action is different. The jigging spoon has less flash, but presents a more visible flash as it turns slower imo than the flutter jig
As far as right wrong end, I cant tell a difference. Seem pretty symetrical to me
