My vote goes to the Johnson Weedless Spoons too. The smallest one they make (I think its 1/8oz, but may be 1/16oz), has been a killer for me the past few years. They're a pain to throw, especially in the wind, but the results have spoken for themselves! Oh yeah...the gold ones.

Late,

Gold

Gold...we always used the regular 1/2 oz. sprite, with the treble removed and replaced with a single hook, with a red bucktail cut about in half. LA Cox, one of my "secret weapons" used to be the smallest sprite rigged like above, but about 15" to 18" behind one of the small clear bubbles. Costs like a dream, and sometimes the bubble creating a wake on the surface, would attract reds.

Johnson's suck now

Johnson's are now made overseas from what I heard.
The finish rusts quickly.
The finish is very thin also.

Luhr Jensen's claim to be U.S. made and don't rust as bad.
Yes, they're at academy.

Also Hotrods never rust is seems like.
The have a great wobble, but you gotta work it differently.

There you have it there you go.

Fish INC,,

The old sprites used to be a lot thinner than the ones in the past 10 or 15 years. They wobbled much better. We used to sort through a card of them looking for the thinnest. I still have a few of the old thin ones, but mostly without the finish.

Johnson Sprite. I have caught reds on both gold and silver, but more frequently on gold. Buy both!

Nothing like a "sidewinder" for the surf and caught and 8+ on it in Trinity last year. Limited many times in the surf when no one else could catch a fish back when the water was clear blue in 94 in the surf. I also use a castmaster when the wind is tough. Caught a 30lb jack standing on the beach at SPI with the castmaster. The sidewinders are hard to find.

I have been using the Nemire 1/2 ounce gold spoon for a couple years. Its a great spoon and it has a rattle which helps.

I only use the weedless spoons made by big fish tackle company. They have a smaller profile which helps when casting and wobble like crazy. Their 1/8oz spoon is the perfect size for the flats IMO. Plus, they have a small ring on the back for adding a bucktail.

Their website is www.bftco.com
