Spoons on wire dispy


Recommended Posts

I generally run a six rod spread on my small boat with two riggers, two wire dipseys and two leadcores off inline boards. I always run spoons on the riggers and leadcore and flasher/flies on the dipseys. Question is, are there guys who tend to run spoons off their dipseys rather than flasher/flies?

Edit: I shouldn't say "always" as there are times I run thinfins or stick baits...

Typically i run flasher/flies on my wire rods also but when the flasher/fly bite is non existent, I run spoons on the dipsey rods. Especially early in the season when the king bite hasnt turned on.

If the flasher fly bite isent going then i put #3 jayplugs on low wires. They take fish all year long the first time i run a plugs is about the 2nd weekend in june. It works for us and puts some bigger fish in the boat to. IMO

For some reason I've moved away from the j-plugs. I don't think I ran them at all last year. A couple of years ago I did run them on my divers and did well with them. I'll have to give that another shot. They are good off the cores too right? -- Bud

In the last week one of my most productive setups as been a ss mived veggie spoon, mono dypsy setting at 3.5. and regular size black screwball on braid dypsy setting 1.5 on the same side of the boat. both dypsys with no rings.

What where you running for mono between the diver and the plug ?. I'm not a big fan of snubbers but unless you beef up the mono you will break a few off..

Good question. When I was getting started, I was using 25lb mono for my leaders between the dipsy and flasher with snubber. Lost a lot of gear until I switched up to 40lb floro. I assume that 40lb floro would be a good choice.

As far as last season & and so far this season, Magnum Dreamweavers are catching just as many fish on my wires as my spindoctors do. Those spoons run awesome even w/ faster speeds.

I run 4 dipseys on my boat and i will normally deploy a couple flasher/flies and a couple of spoons. The Fishlander UG Blueberry Muffin is one of my all time favs off the high diver early in the morning. But, just as many times as i run spoons ill run all four with flashers/flies and theyre poppin'!
