good stuff here, i looked retrieval up specifically to see if i can find out why i lose a lot of soft lure tails fishing or the well known soft lure tail curl that may cause missed chance to set the hook, was i too fast ? certainly does not appear that was the cause. i regularly use the slam shady 2.0 with my favorite setup the hoss helix hooks tucked slightly into the lure to be completely weedless which works very well

wondering if a stiffer tail in the area that folds only, that would not fold so easily or engineering with thin wire or line under the body and tail to keep from folding ?

again thank you for all you guys do – you are making a better fisherman out of me !

Very good discussion. Going to look at less aggressive, “impatient” 🙂 action and see what works. Thanks!

I surf fish, and in my (very much novice) experience the spoons are equivalent to the suspensions they’re talking about starting around 38:00. I have never imparted any action to the spoons; just a steady retrieve. So far every strike on a spoon has happened within a couple of seconds of hitting the water. So my hypothesis is spoons work when you have a pack of predators chasing abundant baitfish. So when I’ve walked the beach I’ve looked for bluefish jumping and schools of bait fish showing up in cresting waves and tossed a 3/4″ spoon out.
