"You can't beat these hopkins spoons! they catch everything! Ive caught everything on these spoons. Fluke jigging it off the bottom, blues and stripers casting and jigging them, bonito, false albies, and schoolie bluefin trolling and jigging them! Not having a handful of these in your arsenal is a crime!"

"this spoon is very good for surf fishing. you can cast it a mile. ive caught numerous spanish, bluefish, speckled trout and even seen a few rockfish caught with it. hopkins spoons are money."

"i nicknamed this lure brand (hopkins, the boxer). i use this in the jetty at the indian river inlet in delaware. the weight allows me to get the distance i need, and the bluefish love it. dont get me wrong, i believe you get what you pay for. this is an expensive lure to donate to a stop that has a lot of hidden snags."

Thanks for the explanation - These lures out fished at least 15 other local bait shop lures 6 times in a row! I ordered more because I ran out. Casting in breaking fish in the Chesapeake Bay there are none better to my knowledge. Amazing! We tried some look-a-like ones we found @ Bass Pro - not even close - when casted side by side to the Hopkins - your lure was the unmistakable winner - catching on nearly every cast - thanks again.

You might add Great Lakes Pink Salmon to your species list. I used a c 1960 #2 NO=EQL in the St. Mary's River and limited out every time I used it.

Wow, we just came back from Venice, La...boated over 100 Redfish, over half on the Hopkins Spoons...

We launched into Prince William Sound from the small port town of Whittier, and drove out about 40 miles, I was jigging off the bottom with the same Shorty 150 that I was using last time out. After catching 8 or 9 rockfish, a couple of gray cod, a black bass, and a couple of sculpin, I hooked a much larger fish. The fish turned out to be a 53 inch long, 72 pound halibut, that we finally were able to land the fifth time I brought it into view from the boat.  The fish ran all the way back to the 65 foot bottom and then out away from the boat even further four times!  That was quite a workout for me--it certainly warmed up the rainy cool day.
