Go with the Punch size. I think it is the best size representation for the forage walleye and rainbows are feeding on. Colours? My faves are antifreeze, purple pete, Sprite, Nascar and Angel tears.

yep 3.5" will be the best for erie. colours that area great also include pink panties, greasy chicken, killer ants, sprite, if you have the money get them in both silver and copper backs.

keepen'er afloat is always better than sinkin.

copper for sure. copper backed wonderbread is my favourite spoon. i've been told to change all the hooks as soon as you get them, also told they were dealing with that issue.
I've forgoten to change a few and have no issues, but i was warned to change them out.

Thanks guys - great help - (sounds like all the colors work !!)

Onmedic - Were the hooks that came with them substandard ?

thats the rumour, like i said, i do have some swapped out but others forgot or never got around to it, have had no problems but its the only gripe i've heard, that and they don't troll under 2.0 mph well, but who does that really? Not an issue for me. 2.3 or 2.5 slowest i've gone this year, caught fish so worked well in that range.

Just saw yesterday that angling outfitters have knock out on sale 6 for 20 bucks. Such a good deal i thought that i bought 6 and dont have a trolling boat yet:D

just got back from angling outfitters with a dozen of them - some of the more popular colors are hard to find but i think i've got a start. I forgot to ask there - but they don't come with split rings - do you guys add them ?
