Tackle Preview WannaFish a Lure

WannaFishALure hoochie spiners

Here are a few tackle items worth checking out. I have not yet had a chance to fish these yet but to be quite honest, they look pretty fishy. These are all made by Toni at wannafishalure.com. I have included some photos so you can see some of what she has to offer. The hoochies have a skirt similar to a fly and look pretty interesting. The photos really do not do them justice… Click on the photos for a larger view. [Use the back button to return to the previous screen]

The spinners appear to be fairly fishy. Two features that I liked are

A.) The glow bead above the trailer hook.  That feature, I have found to be very effective at inciting a bite, especially when the fish are being temperamental.

B.) I like the hook selection. The sickle hook has accounted for many a fish that has been brought to net in my boat.

One feature I am not crazy about is the swivel attached to the leader for ease of snapping in below the dodger. I am one of those guys that is always messing with my leader length so the swivel would most likely end up going bye bye in a short period of time.

All things considered, I will be putting these in the water later this month for a test run. I was brought up fishing spinner baits for kokanee and if push comes to shove, I prefer to use them over any other bait, especially in the spring.

Here’s what I want you to do now …

  • First, in the comments section below, I want hear about any new 2012 kokanee tackle… Note that I will delete links that do not pertain to the topic.
  • If you are interested in having your tackle previewed here along with a review of the way it was fished please contact me!
  • Third, I would really appreciate it if you used the button below and shared this post on Facebook, Twitter or one of the other services.

About Kent Cannon

My passion is fishing and hunting as well as traveling throughout the Northwest and writing about those adventures.

I was separated from my job a few years ago due to the still ongoing economic downturn. I had spent years working, focusing on things that really were not near and dear to my heart all the while scrambling and climbing to what I perceived as the top. I of course did not realize what I was doing, because I was caught up in the moment, focusing on what I thought was the American dream. Crashing and pushing ever forward like a Lemming headed for a cliff, oblivious the world around me.

I was more than a little bitter over loosing my job; it was a good job as far as jobs go and I was making a lot of money so I could live according to the manner in which I wanted to be accustomed. In the process of trying to find another job in an unfavorable economic climate I found something that I had left behind many years ago. I found me!

That is how and why I started this website, looking for myself and sharing things that I found along the way. Even though I am older now, suffering a little from arthritis and my hair is now somewhat graying I still have fire in my belly for the next adventure. The more that I seek out my next adventure, the more excited I become!

    Thank you for your review. I hope that these are as successful on your lakes as they have been on mine.

    I know that hoochies have been around a long time but these are called Squiddy Things. I choose the fly hook under the squid because of low hook ups I was having. The hook sticks out at a weird angle which gave me more hook ups.
    As for the swivel 🙂 I thought it classier than a loop. I start out with 18 inches of 15 pound test. My thoughts were long is better. Hard to put line back on a short leader.
