hmmm this is spoon that not normall hahaha
Welcome to LureAndMore , mate , ..........you're right , ....but strictly seen this is not a spoon , but a pirk !
There are different terms for spoon lures around , ........first and most common would be the "casting spoon" , this is the one that anglers mostly refer to when talking about spoons for fishing , ......the term says it all ,..... it's cast out and retrieved .
Another one is a "trolling spoon" , ....ar first sight it looks like a casting spoon as well , .....but if you get it in your hands , you'll see , that it would be made of a very thin and light sheet metal , not that much suited for good casting and retrieving sufficiently deep , .......this spoon model is supposed to be trolled behind a weight let down to a given depth from a boat .
The third one is a "jigging spoon" , also called a pirk , ..........these lures do not quite have the looks of the above mentioned lures , they are more compact and heavier , ...because they are meant to sink to the bottom fast and be jigged down there , either in a cast-and-retrieve manner or vertically below a boat ot from a pontoon or pier , ....etc !
Such jigging spoons are most likely made from lead , solid brass or steel rod and there are also few non-lead alloys around , ...they can weight from 10 grams to 1000 grams , depending which species of fresh,-and saltwater is the target fish .
