- When jigging a spoon around wood cover, replace the nickel-plated hook with a softer bronze hook. If the lure hangs up in deep water, apply pressure and the hook will straighten enough to free the lure. Or add an Ultimate LureSaver titanium split-ring (866-587-3728) between the lure and the hook. When you pull on the line you'll lose the hook but save the lure.
- In muddy water, add a 3-inch chartreuse swimming-tail grub to a spoon's hook as an attractor.
- Stick a piece of prism tape on a spoon or blade bait for more flash.
- If the bite is slow, press in the center of the Little George's spinner slightly to give it a bit more "cup." This will change its vibrations and might trigger more strikes.
- Bend the tail of a blade bait so that it has a slight curve when viewed from above. This will make the lure fall and hop more erratically.
