A fishing spoon is one of the oldest and most versatile lures in fishing. With a design similar to the bottom section of an eating spoon, fishing spoons are made from metal or brass and feature an oval-shaped bodied with a waving or bubbling body pattern. This design helps these sinking baits flutter and dash as they're swimming, retrieved, or jigged in the water. Fishing spoons come in various sizes, weights, and shapes, helping anglers target anything from little panfish in the pond to giant saltwater fish from the beach.
