Jigging Spoons / Ice Fishing
I have found shad spoons to be very adaptive to ice fishing. I have started using an altered willow leaf spoon with treble hooks for ice fishing on Cape Cod. It has proved to be more effective than the small kastmaster spoons I normally use. Since it is light, It has an enticing flutter action, and on the decent in the water it skids sideways covering a larger area around the hole than a heavier spoon. They are also effective jigging open water from a boat. It works so well I have decided to include it in my selection of Woo's Lures. Try it you'll like it. See links below for other ice fishing lures.
