The Shad King has been catching fish for more than half a century. Known in years past as the Russian Spinner and Shiner, this bait has the action of an excited minnow. This lure works great when spin fishing by adding split shot on the line for a little extra casting weight. It is also very effective as a trailer with other lures. Featherfly models of this MicroLite lure are also availabe for dedicated fly rod anglers who like the Shad King for fly rod fishing. The Shad King is also very effective for all types of ice fishing. – from http://www.yakimabait.com website.
These spoons are very small. 1/32 ounce? yeah, that’s small. I flat line troll the 1/8 and 1/12 ounce sized ones in nickel and gold color about 100 feet behind my boat to target rainbow trout and brown trout in Round Valley (and laketrout in the early spring and late fall). Make sure to use a quality ball bearing swivel to minimize line twist. You can use the smallest dipsey diver (45mm) to get down to about 20 feet with these, otherwise you’ll only be about 2 to 5 feet down.
Just messing around pitching the 1/8 ounce model on 4lb ultralight setup you can have a blast with sunfish, little bass, rockbass and bluegill.
