manish i think you have not attached a swivel to your spoon,further have u painted that red color to it intentionally ?

i think murrels striking such spoons is very rare as compare to spinners.

hi basrath,

yes I have intentionally coloured the spoon with a nail polish for the special effect and i do have a swivel in this spoon but that is missing in this picture. i am very new to spinning but in my case murrel is taking spoons very easily

Manish.

Hi manish cheers on the great catch !
Have u tried out soup spoons made out of metal for spinning ?
( soup spoons in this case would be the flattned out spoons u get @ chineese joints with the soup)
have a bigger wake and a more wobbly action ...also casts a mile on 8lbs mono ! ( thicker/heavier the spoon longer its going to cast!)
ps: maybe better better suited for deeper waters in lakes/rivers.

Nice catch Manish,

I have tried similar spoons(thanx for the pix) for two seasons in Murrel area never had even a single catch. Have caught Masheer and Mully with the spoon.

Websinner nice idea,..Do you catch Murrel regularly with soup spoon?

Imran

You should be able to get two lures out of a spoon.
A fat one like the one in the pic and a long slim one made from the handle which is a good option for faster waters.
We used to make them as kids and caught plenty of fish on both versions but the handle spoons sometimes needed a very slight bend to get them to wobble - just a bend, not a twist, you don't want it to spin.
At a push, you can even make three lures by cutting the bowl of the spoon lengthways. This makes great little spoons that are better than the ones you get fron using teaspoons but are a little more work to build.

Ken how should the spoon behave? Should they be wobbling or spinning, the spoons I make similar to those in the pics above spin. I shall try to cut some spoons lengthways and fish. Thanks for the tip.

Idealy, the lure should wobble rather than spin as spinning causes line twist.
It's hard to see until the end but have a look at this:

Spinners are different. With a spinner, the blade should revolve around the shaft and again, there should be no line twist because the shaft doesn't rotate.

Wonderful murrel caught. Nice spoon made. Reminds me of old days when I used to make my own spoons of different shapes and sizes. Famous shapes were kidney, mcdonald and teardrop. Dont know whether you are familiar with these names or whether these names still exists. These were my all time favourites. Used to make copper, brass and silver spoons. Thnks for sharing the pics and happy fishing.
