Mini Ice Spoons

Mini Ice Spoons
Not necessarily 'jigs' but i fish them pretty much the same vertical style through the ice or below my kayak in summer.  Can also use them pegged under a float just as easily.  These are all small lightweight spoons that i added solder to the back of to add some extra weight and then i powder coated.  The extra weight comes in handy on the ice when you want to get down to fish on the finder quickly.  Added on a #12 or #10 treble to a few and then going to add on single dropper hooks on a few others.  Hopefully be using these soon....... ice is building here finally.  Icon14 : Co-Founder

Your painting prowess makes them the best I've seen. You prefer hanging trebles to soldered singles?

Excellent paint job's AF, should haul some in. A guy could even throw one of those red flippers on in place of the small blades for some extra variety.

Russ, after this weekend, you may have safe ice, but be careful

I have a buddy that uses small spoons like this in deep, open water during the Summer to target Bluegill. Cast it out, count it down, then do a twitching retrieve. He prefers a single hook on a split ring, instead of a treble. At these sizes, that's usually an Orvis "big eye" fly hook. I can't remember what the model # for that hook is.

RE: Mini Ice Spoons
Thanks for the comments everyone. I do have some both ways, trebles and singles. Also have a bunch with single dropper hooks. The singles seem to work good with bluegill, but i have lost a lot of crappie with those. I think the trebles keep crappie hooked up a little better. I do hate how the get tangled up though. I have them all hooked int a piece of foam and in a separate box of my Plano ice gear. Got out on the ice yesterday but only tiny bluegill to show for it. Not a lot of available ice yet, but should be plenty more by the weekend. Cool : Co-Founder

Sounds like some serious ice building weather is heading your way but I sure as shootin would not want to be out there during that weather if it's going to be as cold as they forcast. Big Grin

Yes indeed, the cold weather is here. Only 13° now and spose to drop through the day. Wind chill could drop down as low as -40°. Don't think i've ever seen that before.

I don't mind using my hand auger, it is a 6" Nils and cuts the ice very easy. But if it builds over 10" or 12" i might have to break out the heavy as hell 8" gas auger. I hand cut 50 or 60 holes on Saturday and Sunday.... but the fishing down right sucked. Only brought home 3 fish. Hopefully do a little better this weekend. But then they are calling for 50° and rain on Monday...... WTH??? : Co-Founder
