If you are looking for some quality spoons and spinners then look no further. Get’n Hook’d Lures is a Canadian company out of Penhold Alberta sells just that, and trust me you will not be disappointed! From the painted logo to the vibrant eye catching colours, these lures have so much detail that they are sure to catch a fish. I got the amazing opportunity to test these bad boys out in some open water on a recent trip down south to Powell River. The action they produce in the water and the way the light reflects off of them is truly amazing. I unfortunately had no luck catching a fish this trip but I always find winter fishing difficult as well as new bodies of water that I have never fished before. I did meet a local fisherman who was fishing near me one day and was full of fishing knowledge, after chatting about fishing and this beautiful area (he gets to call home) he happily gave me some local fishing spots to try out next time I am down. Living up North where it is still hard water season and -20°C, it truly was a treat to be able to test these lures out at this time of the year and I cannot wait to slay the fish come Spring time on them.
What Is The Difference Between Spinners and Spoons?
For those of you that are new to the world of fishing you might be wondering, what exactly is the difference between spinners and spoons?
A spoon is an oblong shape, and concave on one side. It is usually made out of metal and shaped like that of the bowl part of the spoon hence the name spoons. As the spoon catches the water it produces a wobble, a longer spoon will give you a wider side to side wobble than a shorter spoon which will give a shorter side to side wobble. The deeper the concave is on the spoon the wider the wobble it will produce than that of a flatter spoon. Spoons are mainly used to attract fish by reflecting light as they move randomly side to side as it is being retrieved.
A spinner bait has a metal blade which is attached to the wire of the lure which then spins like a propeller around the body of the lure when it is in motion. When you cast your line out and then start to reel in the lure goes into motion and the blade begins to spin. In the water the blade catches the light from the sun and sends out tiny vibrations kind of mimicking the behaviour of a small fish. Because spinners are flashy and make noise they have the advantage over other types of lures on cloudy days and in murky water.
