Spirit Lures . https://spiritlures.com/
This new kid on the block looks like it has a bright future . I'm happy to be giving feedback to Cameron Neufeld , the developer of this lure . This is the Looney Spoon , and he is also making a swimmer head for hootchies.
These are early days, but so far the Looney Spoon has been out-performing the other favourite lures.
The action is from the head first , which I like , and which you might guess from the shape . The paint and finish and hardware are good quality .
I don't fish with flashers attached to the fishing line , and this lure is a great choice for having that sporty feel of having a direct connection to the fish with a light lure . I'm sure it will work well behind a flasher for those who want to do that .

That's enough scenery shots for a while .
Yes , we did get hit by the snowstorms , in two dumps of snow , but lots of people on the coast got it much worse . And , in a few days we are back to the usual rain and wind storms , which aren't so pretty.

It's January and relatively quiet for most of the fishing boats .
