Anglers targeting deeper waters for trout, bass, steelhead or salmon may want to try the Kamlooper Spoon from the Acme Tackle Company.
The Kamlooper’s body shape and high weight-to-profile ratio have been designed to get the spoon down quickly into deep river pools, stream pockets and lake ledges. Trolled or fished on the retrieve, it tracks deep through the water column with a frantic swimming action.
Says Acme: “The action is tailor-made for a stop-and-go fishing style. Halt the retrieve and the spoon flutters enticingly towards the bottom, imitating a wounded baitfish. Jig it vertically over structure or near a school of suspended baitfish to take advantage of the fast-sinking style and enticing movement on the fall.”
Acme, a Rhode Island company that has been making lures for 60 years, offers the spoon in four sizes to cover a wide spectrum of spin-fishing and trolling situations.
The tiny 1/8oz version is designed for trout or panfish in small streams, ponds or heavily pressured lakes where a little extra finesse is necessary. The 3/16oz. Kamlooper is more suitable when longer casts are required or when targeting fish patrolling deep along ledges or in swifter currents.
A 3/8oz model is recommended for steelhead and salmon in rivers, trolling deep for mackinaw, or even jigging vertically for bass. And when deep-feeding trophy brown trout, pike and muskie are the target, Acme suggests the largest, ¾oz Kamlooper.
Each spoon in the range is available in finishes that combine a metallic flash with baked-on enamel patterns that imitate a miscellany of forage fish in various water conditions. Premium quality components, including stainless steel split rings and heavy-duty treble hooks, mean the Kamlooper will provide many seasons of use, says Acme.
