ACME Little Cleo Spoons

ACME Little Cleo Spoons

Description

ACME Little Cleo Spoons are very versatile, taking various species of gamefish around the world. ACME Little Cleo Spoons are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors suitable for use on a variety of gamefish, ranging from trout and panfish to stripers, pike, and muskie.

The unique hump-backed shape of the Little Cleo results in a seductive, wiggling action as the lure is drawn through the water. The illusion created is one of a baitfish, acting in an erratic, confused manner. This triggers the predatory nature of the gamefish to strike. This appeal to fish explains Little Cleo's fantastic success as the one lure that takes all gamefish.

We carry the ACME Little Cleo Spoons in the following sizes:

CF-190 (1/16 oz.) - used for ultra light spinning or spincasting with 2-4 pound test line.

C-180 (1/8 oz.) - used for ultra light to light spinning or spincasting with 2-4 pound test line.

C-160 (1/6 oz.) - used for ultra light to light spinning or spincasting with 2-4 pound test line.

C-140 (1/4 oz.) - used for light spinning or spincasting with 4-6 pound test line.

C-100 (1/3 oz.) - used for light to medium spinning, spincasting and trolling with 4-6 pound test line.

C-200 (2/5 oz.) - used for medium to medium-heavy spinning, trolling and baitcasting in still or running water with 8-12 pound test line.

C-230 (2/3 oz.) - used for medium to medium-heavy spinning, trolling or baitcasting in swift or deep running water with 8-12 pound test line.

C-340 (3/4 oz.) - used for medium-heavy spinning, trolling or baitcasting with 10-14 pound test line.

C-10 (1 1/4 oz.) - used for heavy spinning, trolling and surface casting with 10-14 pound test line.

Colors available vary by size.

I own dozens of these in various colors and sizes and have caught many, many steelhead on them over the past 30 years. I even still have some of the "Wiggle Lures" that had the hula girl etched into the back of the spoon. You old timers know what I'm talking about!!! I do change out the hooks for the next larger size though.

We have used these lures for lake trout in Canada and have had excellent results. We have tried other spoons with little luck. We ran into some friends from our home town that were fishing the same lake and using another brand of spoon. We were on the lake for about an hour and a half and had caught our limit and the only had 1/3 of there limit. Use the little Cleo's and catch fish.

I use these spoons extensively for late fall and early spring salmonoids. They are durable and I have caught a pile of fish on them. When trolling or casting make sure the action on them has a pumping action. If they flip flop back and forth the retrieve is too slow, if it spins it is too fast. A pumping action side to side turns on any fish. I have caught perch, pike, bass, all species of salmon, catfish, carp on these spoons. The fish can't leave them alone. One afternoon over a 1.5 hr stint I landed over 20 spring coho and who knows how many more got off. This is an A1 lure....
Pros: Durable, strong, catches fish
Cons: I have a pile of other spoons that never get used

First used one 55 yrs ago for white bass. Destroyed my little Zebco. I've caught catfish trolling with them and they'll get crappie,(caught a slab yesterday) bream, spot, sea trout, croaker, whiting. Dosen't seem to be a limit to what this lure does. One of my all-time favorites. A dependable standby when nothing else works. And I've only used the solid silver ones!
Pros: Been using them 55 yrs, Strong, Looks Realistic, White bass tear these up, Good For Variety Of Fish, Irresistible to Fish

Best used for sight fishing in upper column of water.I use it for little blues in and around Barneget Inlet, N.J. The silver and blue lure looks like local bait. If your on the fish this will produce 9 out of 10 casts. The body of the lure will last but the hooks(easily replaced)could be a litlle better quality.Great lure for the price.Make sure the wind is at your back.
Pros: Easy To Store, Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle, Irresistible to Fish, Sinks well with braid

Tipped with sucker meat, or a glow in the dark jig, a gold little cleo in all sizes has caught lake trout, rainbows, ling all out of the same hole for me. The larger size are more weighty and I can feel it well in 80 feet of water with 15 pound flurocarbon lines. Excellent for winter jigging, great in summer for casting or trolling. The old standby for me WORKS! The energizer spoon?

Just cast along weedlines and your shure to catch a fish.

The Little Cleo Spoons are the best bait that i have found for catching Steelhead in Lake Erie in the late summer and the early fall. Also they work great in deeper sections of rivers. In mid-summer believe it or not they also work great for catching small mouth in the rivers around here. Technique wise what you want to do is make short cast and lift that rod tip as high as you can and bounce the spoon across the top of the water. Believe it or not the smallies come flying out of the water for them. A ery versital bait that I recommend to anyone.
