Item Number: N2 Blue 948 Pearl
Thinner longer, has more of a cup. Painted fire and ice on both sides. Herring/Anchovy Sticker without scales.
Sticker turns blue/green/pink. Spoon works well with its partner D-4 Blue 948 Pearl but a little narrower and little thicker.
For all my spoons, I recommend tying direct to split rings. I like 95 170 Mustad hooks 5/0 or QI hooks 6/0. I prefer Super Star fishing line as it coils very nice.
I learned this from the Canadian fishermen years ago.
PROS Lighter leader (60 lb test). Slightly longer leaders 4 fathom gives long stretch so big fish cannot break so easy. Gives spoons more action equals higher catch rate.
CONS After catching big fish, you will have to tie new leaders and you must use gloves when pulling as its hard on your hands.
After recommending this to a fellow fisherman, he started using this method. He called me up and reported, “Hey, it works great my catch is up by 50 percent. The only problem is sometimes the top leader will have a fish on and the next leader down will a fish on, and I have to pull both fish at one time. And I replied “So, tell me what your problem is again?”
*You can tie up 2 new leaders for 10 cents.
