Bink's Spoons has been around since the 90s and used across the country, but especially in the midwest from Arkansas all the way up to Minnesota and Wisconsin. You may have seen other reports discussing Bink's Spoons in previous months. For the rest of the year, we will have a post about Bink's Spoons every two weeks and how to effectively use them on Truman Lake and beyond for crappie and many more predator species. Bink's Spoons were made popular by their creator, Darrell Binkley, on Norfolk Lake. There, he uses the spoons to target many species including crappie, walleye, white bass, hybrids, and stripers. In fact, here is Bink's most recent report from his home waters: This is the time of the year to get out the jigging spoons. As in the photo, we have been catching fish like this for the last few months. A. Best size depends on how deep you are fishing. O to 40 feet, use 1/2 oz 40 feet to 60 feet, use the 3/4 oz.  60 to 90 feet, use the 1oz. B. Best color depends on the color of the water. In clear water, you need to be using one with a lot of white. In stained water, one with a lot of dark color. C. Size - match the size with the size of bait they are feeding on that day (Real important ) D. last but not least, while jigging raise your rod over your head and let it fall all on slack line! -Bink
Fishing Notes

It’s getting to be that time of year to break out the minnows. Crappie are pushing back out on the main lake and starting their summertime patterns. For those without livescope, dipping trees is going to be the name of the game and continue getting better throughout the summer.

Bink’s Spoons are an excellent tool to have in your arsenal for this pattern. They come in a variety of colors and add a nice fluttering action as you drop it down.

The most effective way to fish Bink’s Spoons for crappie is to tip a minnow onto the hook. That goes for whether you’re using the version that only has a single hook on it or a treble hook. If you use the single hook and get snagged, it is typically very easy to bounce the rod slightly and the weight of the spoon with knock the hook off the snag. It will work with the treble hook too, but may not be as effective.

Simply tip the hook with a minnow and get on a main lake flat. If you can find where the small ditches are coming in off the bank into the flat, those will be key places that fish like to stack up. Pull up to the tree and just slowly drop that spoon down the side. With the lake being up 10+ feet, you’re going to have to fish that much deeper. This time of year, a good rule of thumb is that many of the fish will be sitting halfway down however deep the water column or shallower. Bring that bait up slowly and you’ll feel a good thump when they strike.

If the current is going good, be sure to check out some of the flat points on the main lake with cedars and hedges. Those crappie will many times get on those trees late in the morning and get a lot higher up in the water column.
