Default gold spoons

I am fairly new to salt water fishing but I bought a little boat the first of the summer and am out several times a week. I have only caught 4 red's so far and all have been on gold spoon in the daytime, I have tried live shrimp, dead shrimp, cut bait, to no avail. My question is are gold spoons not as effective at night due to the lack of light to make them shine ???

when your useing a spoon it targets 2 of the fishes senses

it has vibration becuase of it spinning and it uses sight when it flashes it the water so your chances of catching a fish at night on one are cut in half becuase there is no shine but if your fishing dock lights both of those senses are used becuase of the light off the dock

I disagree with KingLing. The quality of a fish's eye sitedeviates from species to species. Saying that, the deviations can be in the spectrum of color they can see and how much or how little light they can pick up with their eyes.Certainly on aclear night with a full moon your spoon will be able to reflect light visible to fish, especially in clear water. Now the eye site of a specificfish such as a redfish,I cant say for certain but I can say that redfish can becaughtthrough all hours of the night which leads me to believe that they are predators that have no problem holding their own in the nocturnal world. Just my opinion.

But I lost my last two yesterday after having a blast with ladies, pompano, and reds, have to go buy more, but will have a min. of 6 in the box at ay one time.

I throw it out, let it sit for five second rule, then a real or two then pop it, a real or two then pop it, at a fairly fast pace, not as fast as you can reel but fairly steady.

Does anyone ever sugar coat their gold spoons w/ a little piece of cutbait, or piece of Gulp! Shimp/Shad (or whatever the pin fish just tore up)?

You know, I have heard of that, but I have never done it, I just thought it might affect the way it moves thru the water. But I hear people say it works great.

adding cut bait imo makes the spoon swim with less or no wobble (maybe really small pieces would work) i have had better luck adding a grub or small swimming trailer.



with your stop and pause technique the swimming tail will catch alot of fish on the fall. give it a try. i like to try all different kinds of trailers. the one in the pic is my favorite with the gulp swimming mullet a close 2nd.
