How Project 2015 turned into
Salmon Buster™ Spoons

Reel Instructions

With all things fishing, nothing is written in stone.  Basic instructions can lead to success.  I can share with you, we ran the prototypes on 20# test mono. Designed into these spoons is the ability to use a reasonably priced, very strong made in USA coastlock 5-34 swivel from Roscoe.  Some spoons, like yesteryear's Lucky Lure, Sutton Spoons, Flutter Spoons and Big Jon's Finweaver all required expensive Sampo ball bearing swivels ...if you want to reach these bygone spoon's full potential?

During 6 months (May-Oct) of test sessions in 2014 we never ran extra long leads behind the riggers.  Staying this side of 30' back at 50' down, and the riggers went deeper, lead lengths from the cannonball decreased.  100' down the 4.65 produced action with a 10' rigger lead and at 90' down the 4.0 took fish on 12-15' leads. 

My spoons have a dazzling pulsing action, much like a crankbait that transmits lure action up the line on rigger rods.  So, don't let your rod's twitching action, or rod pump that might fool you into believing you're towing a shaker.  It's just the Salmon Buster™ spoon ringing the dinner bell for Mr. Fish, as it very well should!  I was surprised to learn, with a 100-120' of line off the reel, my spoons could be fished on the surface with no added weight in the speed range of 2.2 to 2.5 mph.  This is how we learned of the constant throbbing and pulsing action that was a reel-eye opener.
