Bagley and Northland Fishing Tackle pro Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson is not only known for his prowess on bass waters, but also has a storied career on the ice. When he’s not traveling on the Bassmaster Elite Season, you can find Gussy somewhere on Lake of the Woods’ expansive waters near his hometown of Kenora, Ontario.
After spending the day preparing to hit the road for the new Bassmaster Elite Season, Gussy gets out for an evening walleye bite jigging the new Glo-Shot® Fire-Belly Spoon.
A longtime fan of the Buck-Shot Rattle Spoon, which he’s caught literally thousands of walleyes on, Gussy now recommends that anglers look to the Glo-Shot Fire-Belly Spoon as a new walleye and perch magnet. “It’s cool to give fish—especially if you’re fishing a pressured spot—a new look with these baits,” says Gussy.
Gussy walks through the bait and how he likes to fish it with a minnow head, as well as explains the huge success he’s had with a variety of fish species—walleyes, crappies, perch, and even lake trout.
For those of you not familiar with the Glo-Shot Fire-Belly Spoon, it relies on its proven exposed light stick-stick model that provides angler a powerful Red, Green, or Chartreuse glow which lasts over eight hours. The bait attracts fish from afar, drawing more interest and activity beneath you when targeting a host of fish species. The Glo-Shot Fire-Belly Spoon utilizes a lead-free Z-alloy (Zinc) body to cut through the water column, reaching fish faster and without oversizing the offering.
The Glo-Shot Fire-Belly Spoon is available in 14 fish-catching colors inside and outside of the UV spectrum. Add the fact that anglers can purchase individual glo-sticks to mix and match colors, you have an endlessly customizable bait to address any situation on the water.
With an MSRP of $7.99, the Glo-Shot Fire-Belly Spoon comes ready to fish, one bait per card, in 14 colors and four sizes 1/8 (#10 hook), 3/16 (#8 hook), ¼ (#8 hook), and 3/8 (#6 hook) for a variety of species from panfish to walleye and lake trout.
