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.  We will have a post about Bink's Spoons every two weeks until February talking about 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. You'll even catch some big blue and flathead catfish as well. Dipping trees with a minnow tipped on the spoon can yield many crappie and is the most popular usage of the spoon on Truman Lake.  
Fishing Notes

The crappie bite is in full swing right now. Folks are getting them with minnows and jigs, but sometimes it seems like you run into a finicky bite. So what do you try? Well, breaking out a Bink’s Spoon might help. The Bink’s Spoon with the single Aberdeen hook is specifically designed for crappie fishing and easy snag removal. It is most effective when tipped with a minnow.

Most of the guides and anglers are finding fish back in the creeks and cove pockets, especially when you make your way up the river arms. The fish will stay there for several months. Brush Creek in the Tebo arm is famous for holding huge numbers of fish in the winter time. Schools the size of houses as we’ve described in previous reports. Look for this to be happening soon.

But, if you’re looking to try something different. The bluffs on the lower end of the lake around the dam and up into the lower Pomme and lower Osage can be very good places to drop your Bink’s Spoon. Simply cast the spoon tipped with a minnow up to the bluff and let it fall to the bottom. Raise it up a couple of reel cranks and just kind of let it bounce along the bottom in 18-22 feet of water. The bluff right by the dam is very good for catching crappie in the wintertime.

The lake remains low, even with some recent rain. Water is stained to muddy in the upper ends but fairly clean on the lower end.

All colors of Bink’s Spoons are reported to be working, but favorites are Albino, black/white, all white, chartreuse, blue/white and green/white.
