ACME Tackle Phoebe
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.
Phoebe spoons are for anything from trout and panfish to salmon and saltwater species. The 1/12 ounce and 1/8 ounce sizes are also deadly when vertically jigged ice fishing.

Acme Phoebe lures are made in the U.S.A.

Used Phoebe Minnows for 50 years
by Farcaster -
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.

Rarely have I fished with this lure and not caught fish. I have a variety of colors and sizes in my lure box and frequently, when nothing else is working, I'll clip one of these on and hook a fish shortly after. I doubt that I have another lure that is as effective as the Acme Phoebe.
Excellent trout lure

Casts well .Excellent action
#1 in your tackle box
I use these lures/spoons for all fish. I use the 1/2 off my kayak on the river and catch walleye, pike, and small mouth. I have caught all 3 on the same trip with the same 1/2 gold. In the small trout streams I use various weights depending on the flow. A 1/12 will float with a fast current and stay off bottom. I believe these lures command lots of defensive strikes. The smallest phoebe lures will produce a large flash and I have caught a few foul hooked trout. Worth a try and not just 25 casts. Cons are...they work because of their flash presents so murky water hinders their performance but I also have hammered bass all day with these. I lose spoons and you are going to lose some..deal with it. Just a great lure
Very effective lure for river trout.Great action.Good quality.

Excellent action. Easy to use on ultra light spinning gear.
treble hook came off
by gopher -
During a good run of perch (ice fishing) the treble hook came off the split ring. I was able to reattach after fishing but it probably cost me a few fish. I will try in a trout stream in May in the upper penisular of MI.

Time tested design, still my go to river and stream spoon.
7 Brownies on a fast section of the Roaring Fork, CO.
by Bopper -
I unexpectedly stayed on the Roaring Fork River in Carbondale, CO for a week . the only gear I had with me was my executive 5 piece spinner/fly combo rod and a pair of sandals. The water was 41Â° and the OAT was 60Â°, so standing in the water was not an option for me. The shoreline was rocky and lined with brush, so I figured I would try out the only lure that I had the I felt was heavy enough to sit a foot under the surface with the fast current. It worked great IMO. I landed 7 12-17" Brownies in about 7 hours of fishing over 3 days.
Fast and good
Good came fast and as described. Would recommend
