Spoons catch fish. It’s as simple as that, but not every spoon has the same shape. The shape gives them their action in the water; in addition to whatever action the angler imparts. The Williams Whitefish Spoon also has a unique stabilizing ridge down the center of the spoon that creates its only distinctive action.
The Williams Whitefish Spoon (www.williams.ca) can be trolled or casted. It will catch fish either way; although the action when pulled in short jerks by an angler will incite game fish to strike it. Williams Lures attributed this to two things. First, a stabilizing ridge in the center of the spoon that runs down the middle of it keeps the lure from rotating. Second, the wide action as the spoon swings back and forth flashing wildly.
The flashing action is enough to draw the attention of game fish from long distances. When paused, the Williams Whitefish Spoon dips and dives backwards slowly. It looks just like a dying baitfish and an easy meal for a fish.
The smaller C60 Williams Whitefish Spoon is recommended for jigging in open water or even for ice fishing. Just like the other Williams Whitefish Spoons, the smaller C60 can be trolled or casted. Its petite size matches young of the year baitfish.
The C70 Williams Whitefish Spoon is larger in profile compared to the smaller C60. At 4¼-inch its profile represents a larger more mature baitfish. Its size makes casting to schooling fish easier.
The much larger C80 and C90 Williams Whitefish Spoon are big spoons. They are so large it’s possible to use them as small lure attractors or possibly dodgers. Most anglers will troll this for great lakes salmon; in addition to big lake trout. Up north, anglers will also catch muskie and northern pike while southern anglers will catch hybrid and striped bass on these bigger spoons.
All of the Williams Whitefish Spoons can be fished at slow, medium or fast speeds without the spoons spinning out or losing their action. That’s because of the design which has little resistance when pulled through the water.
Every Williams Whitefish Spoon has a precious metal finish which gives it a brilliant flash when retrieved. It comes with either a honeycomb finish or mirror finish.

From the largest to the smallest, the Williams Whitefish Spoon can be casted, jigged or trolled for game fish. In southern reservoirs like Beaver Lake in Arkansas or Table Rock Lake in Missouri, the Williams Whitefish Spoons are lethal on schooling white bass, black bass, spotted bass and smallmouth bass. On Beaver Lake you can also catch walleyes, hybrids and striped bass with these lures.
When fishing for stripers on Beaver Lake its best to use the biggest one. Stripers can easily eat a large shad in one strike. The larger spoon also helps with making long casts to schooling stripers.
You can troll them, cast them or even jig them. The Williams Whitefish Spoon can do it all. That makes it a versatile lure and one you need in your tackle box.
