I'm used to small lures, which do very well for panfish and trout. But, like any fisherperson, I'm always interested in bigger and better fish--which with its nice heft, polished surface, and good design, the Johnson Slama Spoon seems to promise. Alas, on test day, however, neither the Slama Spoon nor anything else I tried from my arsenal resulted in fish in the bucket. We're now in a deep freeze, so no more tests until spring. If I catch something nice, I'll post photos.
