Nories Wasaby Metal Spoon Review

Metal spoons have been around for a long time, but there has been a recent explosion of new spoons and designs on the market in recent times leading to growing sales of these lure types. In comes the the Nories wasaby, a heavy jigging spoon originally manufactured in Japan and designed for targeting species such as the large mouth Bass. A unique shaped spoon with precision balance allows you to cast this spoon and for and absolute mile.

For land based anglers this lure is a game changer, providing anglers the ability to cast great distances and reach water depths that you generally cant is a great advantage. Often predatory fish will simply strike or chase down this lure out of predatory instincts. And when you get a bite hold on because you know its going to be a fish of decent size. If the bite gets a little quiet then sometimes ill smear a little bit of scent on the spoon. ProCure or S-factor is a nice choice when the bite is quiet I find this certainly helps.

Colour Range

A growing colour range has most of the requirements covered.

BR2, BR4, BR5, BR7, BR8, BR13, BR15, BR16, BR28, BR139, BR172, BR18, BR184, BR265

Species to target

The Wasabi spoons will allow you to target species such as Bass, Trout, Redin, & Perch.

Technique

There are generally two distinctive fishing methods. If your in a boat or area not prone to snags then you would cast the spoon out far and let it sink to the bottom and pause. Then a couple of sharp quick lifts and again letting it sink to the bottom. Repeating this process all the way back to you. Quite often the fish will take the spoon before it hits the bottom so keep a close eye on your line to see if the slack tightens.

The second technique is a very simple cast out, allow the spoon to sink for a couple of seconds then a constant medium retrieve until the spoon is ambushed by a predatory fish. I generally mix up the retrieval speed.

Price

Nories Wasaby lures are sold from tackle shops generally around $20 mark each, slightly cheaper for the 4gma and 8 gram models. This is quite an expensive price to pay for a metal spoon. Yes its all quality components but I’m sure many anglers dread the idea of loosing a $20 spoon to a snag.

Pros

Nice design which is well balanced
Terrific vibrating action
Cast a long way
Can target a whole range of species with one lure
Decent colour range

Cons
Are expensive for spoon design lure
Prone to snags
Trebles on 12g are to big at times

Verdict

Its a terrific product and getting raving feedback from renowned local anglers. I have caught some decent size Trout and Redfin with it in recent times. Its made of quality components, and can cast so far along you to cover incredible distances. That being said it does have a steep price point for a metal spoon. Its a spoon that fresh water fisherman should carry in their tackle-box.

Final word from the author

I love fishing and hope that my kids will become my lifelong fishing buddies that I can take traveling around the state sharing fun experiences and visiting new locations. I hope to incorporate fishing with other fun experiences such as camping and traveling. In my experience, its only made my relationship with my kids stronger and introduces them to a potential lifelong passion.
