ACME Phoebe Lures

$2.55 - $3.75

The ACME Phoebe Lures are a versatile casting lure/spoon suitable for a wide variety of species. The unique curvature of the Phoebe produces a spinning/wobbling action that drives fish crazy. The profile of this lure paired with the stamped scale pattern and fins creates a 3-d illusion that looks like a plump full bodied baitfish.

The ACME Phoebe Lures are a available in five sizes for anything from trout and panfish to salmon and saltwater species. The 1/12 oz. and 1/8 oz. sizes are also deadly when vertically jigged ice fishing.

Sizes and lengths can be seen under the "Specifications" tab above.

Used Phoebe Minnows for 50 years

About Me:

I have used Phoebe minnows from 1/8 to 1/2 oz. since the 60s. You can cast them right by the banks where fish lie. They get the tail-hitters. And you can jig them in a hole. I have caught sockeye and coho with the 1/2 oz. jobs and one of my biggest smallmouth bass with a smaller one. Silver is usually best.

Pros: Accurate and long casting, great in clear water.

Cons: Poor in mirky water.

Best Uses: Trout, salmon, smallmouth.

About Me:
We happened across these lures when we purchased a tackle box at a garage sale. At the time, we didn't know what they were called. When we didn't have access to our regular tackle box, we pilfered the garage sale box. These lures have great flutter action and will attract strikes when sinking, as-well-as on a steady retrieve. These have much better action and flash than a comparable size spoon in the quarter ounce size. The Phoebe flutters down more slowly than a spoon imitating an injured bait fish while the spoon just sinks. We use split shot (of varying size) to gain distance and a faster sink. This lure has proven itself on limited use in salt water for mackerel and are effective on strippers (white bass). It will prove itself effective on other pan fish and game fish as well. Copper was the first color we had. It is recommended to use a small snap swivel to prevent line twist. For mackerel, a short piece of 25-30# leader might be in order. We were happy to find the name, ACME Phoebe, at Fish USA and have purchased several of different colors, including more of the copper These are identical to our garage sale find..

Pros: very good action, Action and attraction

Cons: Fish and snags eat them

About Me:
I have used gold and silver phoebes for the first time this year and have had good luck. Mostly casting from shore. Something about the lure shape lets you get a slow retrieve without the lure sinking to quickly. And tons of flash to bring fish in with that shallow water. Good lure overall and comes with a strong sharp treble

Pros: well-built, very good action, triggers hits

Cons:
