Anyone ever fished them? I found them in the $1.50 bin at walmart, (Formerly the $1 bin) and bought a couple. I never used one till today and I caught a 3 1/2 lb bass on my second cast with it! It's like an upside down plastic spoon that moves back and forth on top of the water when retrieved slowly and then sinks when you stop the retrieve. It is completely weedless and is perfect for fishing lily pads. A heck of a lot better to throw in heavy cover then a seven dollar frog if you ask me! I fish it almost like a buzz bait except much much slower as it doesn't take much to keep it on top of the water. Just figured I'd share.

Looks interesting but I have never used one.

Just got to remember with those spoons to slow down. They're an old design from the days when reels had much slower ratios than the reels we buy today. You only get the correct action if you slooow down.

Any other old school and mostly forgotten bass baits out there that I should try out? I started using pike spoons for bass and have caught a good many on them, And the old creme worms. I'm trying to diversify my fishing techniques.

Torpedo, Hula Popper, Jitterbug. All three as old as dirt, and still catch fish like crazy. Also, check out Devil's Horse and Toothpick.
