Back in black, edge hammered silver

Met Syonker at his old stomping grounds before he moved inland, and gave it a try this morning.  Plume was colder than the lake so that didn't work.  Then we found a log or wreck that cost him all three spoons on his side.  Then we missed the first hit.  Finally cracked the nut, silver black edge flutterdevle on a one color out deeper where there was chop instead of in close.  Those took seven hits, the same in mongoose took the first, shad raps took two, and a Jr streak in perch took a coho.  Ended up with eight browns and a coho, of course the two browns we let go at the end were the biggest.

How powerful was the flutterdevle today?  I pulled one of my rods and put one out just messing around as we had a limit of browns hoping for something else, and mine got hit in five minutes.

Great trip, great company, great snacks.  That's why we do this.

Order direct from Eppinger, hammered silver Jr flutter devles.  Then put a 1/8" stripe down the edge with black sharpie.  This doesn't hold up well, so it will tell you if you're dragging bottom.  Then bend them into a lazy s shape if not so applied at the company.  I've had them come bent and come flat.

I add a sticker eye to the front, my friend, the only other guy I know who runs them, switches out the hook for a small siwash.

The mongoose, and sparkly blue tape versons from the factory have their days too.

Below are my Jr. Flutter Devle go-to colors.

From left to right: Flo O-425, SFloGrC-360, S-355, S-22, SBI-359, SGR-356.

The 3rd & 4th spoons (black edged & orange crush edged) are self-created color combos.

For slow trolling bend the spoon into a more pronounce "S" shape, for faster trolling flatten the spoon out.
