Originally developed in the 1980s by a seasoned West Coast commercial fisherman ("Sylvester") who had a passion and gift for developing custom tackle. More than a year of development and testing was put into the unique shape of this beautiful, classic wobbler spoon.
Sylvester's Secret is a classic wobbler spoon that produces erratic movements due to the oversized cup shape at its tail. The lure beautifully imitates small injured bait fish with an action sought after by both salt and freshwater anglers.
Sylvester's Secret has been used extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, from Alaska to Oregon. Although developed specifically for salmon, Sylvester's Secret has earned a reputation as a top performing lure for a wide range of predator species, including salmon, cod, trout, bass and pike.
