Last year in early fall I decided to try something that I had never done before. I had heard from a few guys about using a spoon to fish for active fall smallies. Basically the technique is to just cast out and let it flutter down on a slack line. Once it hit bottom, just pick it up again bringing it 5 to 10 feet off bottom; then, let it drop again. I was beside myself when I saw how great this new found technique was. The spoon that I was using that day was a 3.5″ Williams half and half hammered, which I had to dig out of my Ice fishing gear. Needless to say, I now also have it in my fall smallie arsenal.
Give it a try you won’t regret it.
