Size 3: Freshwater fishing lures for pike, wiper, bass, walleye, trout, and salmon.
Size 3 fishing lures work well for pike, wiper, small and largemouth bass, walleye, trout, silver and Kokanee salmon and steelhead.
The Size 3 should be fished with 6 pound or eight pound line (heavier line may be used in bass country). The Size 3 fishing lures can be used effectively with lead core without pop gear. If your waters necessitate pop gear, try running it in the vicinity of your lure on a downrigger by itself on an extra rod. The pull of pop gear on your rod is a “drag”.
The Size 3 in the plain silver Pattern 202 is a favorite of naturalist Glenn Lau. Glen fished the Size 3 is Wisconsin and it was so effective for catching larger fish, he kept losing the fish because the split ring was getting ripped off the lure. This prompted us to replace the spilt ring with a heavier duty stainless steel version to hold the lunkers that will hit this spoon.
The Size 3 fishing lures weigh 3/8 of an ounce (~10 grams). Available in patterns 201 – 215, and 300 thru 330.
