Hi Guys

I have been hearing that the AquaDream Spoons are the BEST spoons for these fish ? If so what size and color. I'm fishing the inlets / back country brackish water. Thanks in advance

Manny

A gold spoon is the best for redfish here in jax.

Gold spoon is your best choice but not my first choice for snook.

I just ordered the PinFish, White and 24K color spoons from AquaDream. Will these colors cover the two species ? Thx

I have tried many "great" lures that everyone raves about (insert any year from '86 on) and nothing has ever out fished a basic silver spoon that displayed decent action. My two largest snook, a 36" and a 39 1/2 incher, were both caught on a .96 cent silver spoon. All of my snook experience comes from the Gulf, between Honeymoon Island and Treasure Island. It's the greatest reason to visit the Tampa Bay area in the fall if you ask me.

That's my .02, but I have found a silver spoon to outfish anything except live bait when it comes to snook in the Tampa Bay area in the late summer/fall.

I use the Aqua Dream spoons too. Great product :D . In my tackle tubs onboard the W500 are pinfish, mullet, and gold all the weedless single hook versions. Here is a shot of one of a large number of jacks I played with one day last fall out of Genung's. All on Aqua Dream spoons. One tip that helps is to add a small swivel to the split ring and then tie to that with a loop knot. I use the small black SPRO versions.

I only carry the simple cheap silver spoons in my Lure bag and always get good results :)

So did my ex-wife but she was still great at catching fish. I would go with the AD :smoke:

Wow, should I be concern ? These lures seem well built, has anybody had this problem with the AD coming apart ? Thx

I wouldn't be the least bit concerned. I've been using the same ADL spoon for the last few weeks on one of my rods, and have probably caught close to 50 fish on it, including 23 reds (18 slot) that were landed in one afternoon...haven't had any issues with the hook/screw coming loose. One thing that I would do, and which Capt. Mike suggests on his website, is to add a barrel swivel to the split ring. Otherwise you'll have to deal with SIGNIFICANT line twist.

Same here. I have never had a screw come loose on the AD. That is the only brand I carry in my tackle box. No I'm not on AD's Pro Staff :smoke:
