    2019 Spoon Report

    Fished on Tuesday evening, May 21 - Caught 0 fish on the Ben Parker Magnum Spoon. Saw very few fish on the fish finder, and the ones I saw were deep (50 ft)

    Fished yesterday evening, June 04 - Caught 0 fish on the spoon. Saw a good number of fish, but they were scattered, fish were still very deep around 45-50 ft on average. Usually I see them in 30-40 ft this time of year. Going to try again next week and hope to have some pictures to post afterwards.

    Went back yesterday evening, 6/11. Fish are still really deep. Zeroed for the third time except for switching to bass the last 15 minutes and catching a couple spots. Will try again later.

    They are deep on the other lakes too. A lot of fish stayed really deep most of the winter and spring too. I had just a handful of days this winter where they were up shallow swirling. Everything was out deep jigging.

    bryan, I am always skeptical of a single mark or two being a striper. I also want to see them moving and refer to the graph as looking like spaghetti when I know I am in stripers. Maybe your screen was lit up more before the attached picture but I look for a lot more before I drop a line. Below is the shot I took this past sunday morning. This is what I look for although I will drop a line if I see three or four good marks but again, they have to be moving. It kind of looks like the fish on the bottom of your screen shot is moving so maybe you were on stripers. It has been difficult to find the large schools this year. Confirmation is always holding one in the hand. I will also say, I have been fooled a few times this year with a spaghetti graph of catfish. You and I both have the same sonar unit, Elite-7 Chirp.IMG_5397.jpg

    Good luck out there and keep posting results and screen shots too. I think it helps others to know what to look for. john

    Well, that's what I was saying with the picture. If I was on a school I would have a picture of the actual fish. I haven't found them grouped together yet, so I've been forced to drop on a spot where there are 2 or 3 "close" together.

    I'm expecting better results next week if I can find time for a trip.

    I gottcha Bryan. Better luck next week. I see you were fishing the channel. I have never fished the channel but also rarely fish in the afternoons or evenings anymore. But when I have, I still don't fish the channel. I am checking the same spots I fish in the morning. But I also don't spoon fish or troll u-rigs which I assume is better done in the channels.

    I keep thinking I may run into you since I believe you fish out of Clemson. Good luck next week. I hope to fish Sunday morning and think I am going to Coneross area. this may be last time I fish Coneross, depends on how well I do. It's soon time to go downstream. Good luck all. john

    Finally. Last night was my sixth trip this year. We caught 1 fish on trip #5 . Found the fish yesterday evening and caught 10 all on the spoons. Water temp was 89, fish were the right depth (30-40 ft average). I've been fishing the same area on all 6 trips and they were just late showing up this year. Hopefully they will hang around for a couple more weeks.

    That is awesome. Was it spaghetti? Was there any bait around the area? I would like to have an evening pattern when I don't feel like getting up at 4AM and then feeling like not wanting to do anything for the rest of the day. Maybe I'll run into you sometime. john

    Bryan, If you don't mind me asking. What's your rod/line set up you use with the magnums? I'd like to get out one evening this week.

    It was for about 10-15 minutes. The wind was blowing me off the fish and I would drift a ways when taking one off the hook.

    I wouldn't say there was a lot of bait, but there was some. There has been bait since the beginning of June.


    As far as setup, I'm using abu 6500 c3 reels, cheap eagle claw rods, and I usually use 20-30 lb mono. I normally only drop in the channel, but when the fish followed me out of the channel (b/c of wind) we kept fishing and stuck 3 trees...luckily we didn't loose any spoons.
