About Nichols Ben Parker Magnum Spoon
Resembling a trolling dodger more than a lure for bass, the Nichols Ben Parker Magnum Spoons are giant metal spoons designed to imitate injured or dying shad that bass feed upon. During the FLW Tour Event at Kentucky Lake nearly every angler in the top 10 employed the magnum spoon to catch a majority of their weight. Upon first glance, the lure looks like there's no way it should be used for bass fishing - the all metal spoon measures 7 3/4" in length, 2" wide and weighs 3.4 oz. Magnum is the only proper way to describe this spoon. Former Elite Series Bass angler, Ben Parker, who grew up fishing the Tennessee River Lakes, designed this Nichols Spoon to mimic large species of Gizzard Shad that the biggest bass in the lake are feeding upon. After years of development and personal use, Parker partnered with Nichols to manufacture this giant hunk of big bass catching metal.
Fishing the Nichols Ben Parker Magnum Spoon is a test of strength - as the old adage goes, it'll put hair on your chest. Anglers who have fished the spoon comment on just how tiring it can be, but how effective it is, so the tradeoff is worth it. Using the spoon correctly requires the correct tackle. Recommended tackle includes an 7'6" - 8' rod with a rating of 5-6 power - in fact, Alabama Rig rods are great choices for this technique as well. A high speed reel spooled with 20lb fluorocarbon is recommended as it is strong enough to handle the strain of the lure's weight, but supple enough to allow full action from the spoon. Spoon comes stock with a high quality, 4/0 short-shank EWG feathered treble custom-made by Trokar and therefore doesn't necessitate upgrading hooks ~ essentially, this bad boy is ready to fish right out of the package.
