Q:
I have a few mystery trout lures. They are like tiny money clips with hooks. Some are gold, some are silver. They all have red diamonds on them. They are deadly on western trout. What are these things called? I can't remember for the life of me.

Sounds like some kind of spoon with stones/beads on it to create flash.

Red diamonds rather than dots? Or red dots in a diamond shape?

the beads are usually used to creat a flash as well as eyes.

Other than the red diamonds, they sound like a super duper.

I think they are "super dupers". Would have to "see" one though.

If dots, then they are likely Jake's Spin-a-lures.

You're right, they are Jakes Spin-a-Lures. Very similar to Super Dupers.

Super Dupers are fished slow, with no swivel. They're designed to roll in one direction, causing the lure to move sideways in that direction. When enough twist builds up in the line, the direction of roll will reverse, causing the lure to move sideways in the other direction. Overall action is a big zig zag toward the fisherman. If a swivel is used, the roll rarely reverses and the lure only moves sideways in one direction. They work great for me in beaver ponds, where a slow retrieve seems more productive and lures like spoons or weighed spinners need a faster retrieve to not drag bottom. I've heard people say they use the Super Duper in fast water, but doesn't seem to work for me.

The lures you have are Jakes Spin-a-Lures. They are the only lure resembling a money clip that has paint finish of red diamonds. I also am familar with super duper lures that resemble a money clip but they do not have a finish with red diamonds. I first bought Jakes-Spin-a-Lures at Lake Yellowstone Hotel general store after asking the store clerk what he recommended for the lake Yellowstone Cutthroats. He showed me the distinctive u-shaped Jake's lure (with one end of the top of the u-shaped lure bent inward)as to what the fish were hitting. I caught several nice cuttthroat the next 2 days my family spent their. Afterward I ordered more of the lures in gold and silver from compamy in Wyoming which makes Jake's Lures. Good Luck.

Sounds like a Jakes lure. They are great, especially for lakes because they go deep but get hung up in rivers and streams often.

Jakes money clips is what i'v always called them. I first discovered them in yellowstone national park, they are Trout/Grayling Slayers. A helpful tip a older angler showed me with these is you can put pennies in them to get a further cast. Just make sure your line can handle the weight.
