I love this picture - my son’s first striped bass! Caught in Chatham, on light tackle and a Hopkins 1oz Shorty.

Hopkins are literally THE go to lure in New England for Blues or Striped Bass. If there is a fish, they will hit it.

Hopkins 1/4 oz spoon
I have one of the older but same spoon. On the spoon I have the top of the spoon is wider than the ones on the market now. This wider top allows the spoon to wobble without turning over. The one I have has yellow feathers tied around the hook. I have casught everything on it --- Red fish, bass and seatrout. You can add pork or plastic on the hook for more action. I give this spoon 5 stars. I bought mine around 1974.

Caught stripers on almost every drop. Plan on replacing spoon after 15+ fish as the hair starts coming off.

These spoons are the best!! Hands down for those discriminating summer walleyes.I primarley fish in the downriver area of the Detroit River and mouth of Lake Erie,aggresive vertical jigging is the preferd method.When it's hot,and nothing else is working for you,these are the secret weapon in your arsenal,it is all I use when the water temp climbs above 65.Don't forget a barrel or snap swivel or your line will twist like crazy.One more thing,you might consider a florocarbon or braded line leader,I've lost many spoons to those peskie monster Muskies,while fishing for walleyes.
TRY IT you wont be disapointed!!

Hopkins spoons are multi species lures that catch every preditor fish in fresh and salt from a to z...
But you have to learn the hands skills on how to make them come alive in the water. It takes time but once you get it down the most finicky fish will bite this lure. And it casts like a rocket. The shorty is best when jigged vertical in "sharp" short hits...
Good fishing

Everybody should have 3/4 oz spoons in silver....at least for winter deep vertical jigging or as an option to plunder a shad ball.
