An Unusual Spoon for Northern Pike

Posted by MNAngler On June - 10 - 2011

Last weekend, when I went fishing with my father-in-law (Ken), brother-in-law (George), and his friend (Greg), we all told our own fish stories. This one was particularly entertaining:

Greg owns a cabin outside the Twin Cities metro area. He has a neighbor that routinely asks him about how he’s doing and what he uses when he’s fishing. Being a little annoyed at this, he created a special lure and put it in his tackle box, ready to take it out when the time was right.

One day, he saw his neighbor come out, so he discretely changed out his lure for his homemade one. His neighbor, as predicted, asked him how he was doing. Greg lifted up his stringer, loaded with Northern Pike. His neighbor asked him what he was using and he showed him this:

But that’s not the best part. A few days later, Greg saw his neighbor using a similar homemade lure!

Funny enough, the lure does work. Greg has caught a Northern on the spoon. He’s considering creating a matching knife and fork. I wonder how well those would work?
