Tony Maja's Bunker Spoons are ready to use right out of the package and have been designed for maximum success. The spoons are made of extra heavy gauge stainless steel which makes them work at a greater depth with less wire or line and with only one keel. The action of Tony Maja's spoons have been designed to swim subtler than other spoons and the 9/0 stainless bucktail hook gives them a more life-like swimming action which increases the hook up ratio with virtually no foul hook-ups.
Tony Maja Custom Stainless Steel Bunker Spoons can be trolled with wire, braid, mono and even on down riggers. For best results try to troll Tony Maja's spoons 5 feet from the bottom or 5 feet under schools of bait. Speed is important, but the tip of your rod should give you a good idea of how your spoons are working - there should be a steady pulsation on the tip of the rod. If not, you may have to increase or decrease your speed.
Over long periods of use, the screws securing the keel may loosen do to the vibration of the spoon. Periodically check the screws to be sure they are tight. Liquid thread adhesive may be used for a tighter seal.
Spoon works great when paired with Tony's spoon rod. Go to spoon when trolling. Make sure to check screws once in a while on the weight as they come loose over time

ConsPricey compared to some others

Very well built and the action is just as described when paired with a compatible rod. I would give it a 5 star if it came with the beaded swivel attached for this price but none the less, they work great.
ProsGreat action and high quality materials
ConsPricey compared to some others.
Good design that should catch fish.

Consistently catch large strippers on the #4 spoon. Works best on wire line with banker spoon rod. Very effective

ConsSome people struggle dealing the wire, but it gets fish when nothing else is

Personally wire lining isnt my favorite technique, but you really can't beat wire lining bunker spoons when there are bunker holding in your area.
i've used other spoons and have had success but i like the Tony Maja because i don't have to tweek them too much to get that right action.
definitely spray lock tight on screws
Prosheavy metal doesnt bend
