Flutter Spoon Tricks You Need To Try This Fall! (Everything You Need To Know)

A flutter spoon is an incredible tool during the Fall transition. As bass ambush baitfish, the true potential of the spoon begins to shine. Its slow, tantalizing fall mimics a wounded baitfish better than any other bait. When smaller fish are busting baitfish near the surface, the giant bass you’re searching for are down below waiting to gobble up a flutter spoon. 

Technique is key with the flutter spoon. There is a reason some anglers swear by these spoons and others curse them. Pay close attention to how Tim pumps the rod and works the bait. Every detail matters when presenting these big spoons. As you go up in size, technique will matter more and more. Stinger hooks also become critical. 

Tim shows his method for adding a sliding stinger to the nose of the spoon toward the beginning of the video. Stingers increase you hookup ratio dramatically and when you use a sliding setup your hookup to land ratio will sky rocket. As an added bonus, you can hook multiple fish at once with this modification as well. 

Below are a breakdown of the baits and equipment Tim discussed in the video. The links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item. We’ve included our favorite gear as well as some lower cost options for the budget-minded angler.
