Thomas Buoyant Spoons are erratic-action wobblers that imitate the darting motion of a frantic, fleeing baitfish. This action entices strikes from even the wariest of trout or salmon, and many other types of game fish. The largest size spoon is especially deadly on northern pike.

Buoyant lures feature jewelry quality finishes and a durable construction. These lures can be cast and trolled, in deep or shallow waters, using a moderately slow speed to achieve the most effective action. An occasional sharp twitch of the rod tip can draw some hard strikes.

  • Qty. per pack: 1

Thomas Buoyant Spoons are made in the U.S.A.

Killer in the Eastern Sierra

by Danny -

Thomas bouyants seem to consistently catch trout at our local lakes as well as the Eastern Sierra. I have had the best luck with Red/Gold and Perch, but the other colors seem to catch as well. The only thing I have against these lures are their hooks. They seem to bend quite a bit so I replace them with a Owner Treble Hook (Size #8). Aside from that, they are a great value and will catch you many fish. I'd definitely recommend them.

Deadly on Pickeral

by BigBaits -

We use these on the Finger Lakes in the 5/8oz size. We smash the pickerel on the Gold and Chartreuse patterns. Also, pick up an occasional northern and tiger musky. Many lures have their peaks then fade away on the finger lakes, but these have been perennial producers. Did surprisingly well on largemouth at Erie using a 1/2oz gold. Side Note: I placed my order on a Wednesday evening and my spoons were in my mailbox on Friday with the standard shipping. Great job FishUSA!

Black nickel color is awesome!

by Bigblue -

I use 1/6 oz black nickel spoon for trout fishing in clear water lakes and this color beats all other spoons by a wide margin. A must have spoon for targeting pressured trouts in clear water lakes. I have out fished bait fishermen many times with this spoon. A truly great spoon for right conditions.

I have used Thomas Bouyant spoons to catch Rainbows, Cutts, Browns and Triploids as well as a stray salmon or two and even a Steelhead. Primarily on the 1/6th oz. I wouldn't be without them!!

Thomas Buoyant Spoons

by TalWiWi Angler Society -

Been using for years and absolutely the best for high-mountain trout of all varieties. Really deadly action and good selection of designs. The tend to tumble more than others but worth the minor hassle.

Thomas Buoyant Spoons

by RUSS -

The Buoyant spoon body lure has just outstanding hesitating erratic actions at slow to medium retrieval rates. It's best used as a long distance casting lure in both 1/6 and 1/4 ounce weight sizes. It is not meant to be retrieved at fast retrieval rates for there will be a diminishment of its action and line twisting will come into play. This lure can just have outstanding actions depending on the rate of retrieval and rod techniques the lure fisherman uses.

Lure from the locals.

by CastAwayJeff -

Hawley, PA is home to Thomas Lures and they've been catching fish around the world for decades. I caught a nice trout as a kid on a Thomas Buoyant spoon and was hooked(pun intended) ever since. Gold works well around here and they come in plenty of patterns and sizes. I've got a couple 5/8 oz I'm gonna use for big bass and toothy fish here once the season opens in June.

Great for trout

by hudsonman -

I've used these spoons for a few years and they work great. The rainbow trout seem to really like them.

My favorite trout spoon....

by Creek Dude

Actually my favorite trout lure, period. I fish many small streams in N GA and TN for wild trout (mostly). Was concerned that the 1/6 was too big but I have caught fish maybe only 3 times as long as the spoon, but of course many nice fish too.

Due to regs on some streams I fish, I change out all the trebles to single hooks, less snags and doesn’t seem to lower catch rate either.

My most productive colors are black nickel and black. I always thought the black looked almost silly with all the colors until I tried it and it is one of the best for me. Silver and Gold (w/Red) work great too, but I usually just stay with the first two mentioned above since they almost always deliver.

I go out on many day-long wade trips with just a small container of 6 or so of these spoons and a few Panther Martins (just in case). I love the PMs but it’s is a rare day they fish better than the Buoyants.
