Bemidji, Minn. – Spinners spin, flash and throb. Spoons flash, flutter and wobble. Each has its own unique brand of fish appeal. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could combine the best features of each lure style in one great design?

Problem solved. NORTHLAND’S “Macho” WHISTLER™ SPOON is the next major step in the evolution of angling hardware--a spinner-spoon hybrid that does it all.

“The “Macho” WHISTLER™ SPOON is forged from solid brass and features a CutSlab™, beveled-edge Macho Minnow® body design that erratically tumbles and flashes on the fall,” says Team Northland® Pro Staffer Tony Roach. “It also sports hollow brass beads that clack, clang & clatter, even as a sonic, whistling prop blade spins to lure Walleyes, Perch, Pike & Trout from a wide distance.

“The combination of the blade and spoon body creates an amazing array of performance characteristics that are unlike any other lure on the market. Notably, the blade acts like a parachute to slow the lure’s fall. As it does, the jointed body flails and flops on the drop, with a whole lotta clackin’ goin’ on. It flashes, beats and wobbles, all at the same time. And miraculously, it never tangles on the drop—ever!

“Ironically, as the cut brass body attempts to sail out to the sides on the drop, the spinning Whistler™ blade tends to pull it back in, keeping the descending lure directly beneath and within the cone of your depth finder, whether you’re fishing through the ice or in open water. So you can watch it on your screen, and actually see how fish react to its presence. You get a seductive, crippled-minnow action and attraction, 100% of the time. And that gets results!”

The “Macho” WHISTLER™ SPOON comes in 6 holographic Baifish-Image® colors, including 4 Hot Super-Glo® Color Patterns for added visibility and attraction. And they’re available in 1/8-, 1/4- and 3/8-oz. sizes to appeal to darned near everything that swims.
