USE OF SPOONS | Category: Fishing Talk

Hingol 1 year ago

Here in Pakistan, spoons are generally used for catching Pompano and Threadfin Salmon. Tried to do the same but with no luck. Can it please be advised and guided how to use the spoon i.e. for Threadfin Salmon and for Pompano etc. How fast should the retrieve be for either of these species. Once the spoon is cast, should be allowed to fall to the bottom or the retrieval should be started when the spoon falls half way. At times, when there is a rocky bottom and the spoon is allowed to hit the bottom, it generally snags and lost. What should be the size of spoon for Threadfin and for Pompano? So, how should it be done?

Looks like no one knows

I have only ever caught threadfin on fresh bait. I don't think we have pompano in Australia.

I am only guessing but I would have thought allowing the spoon to sink to the bottom with a slow to medium retrieve.

Obviously if you have a rocky bottom you shouldn't allow the spoon to go there. It's best to let the spoon sink a little then retrieve with medium speed and twitching motion. This will generate a lifelike or a hurt fish motion to attract the predator. I have also caught pompano on with Soldier crabs as bait which is also one fo the best bait in the world. Try it I'm sure you will have some success. Great fishing.

Forgot to mention, a light shiney 1 1/2 inch spoon size works very well for pompano to.
