Picutred below are my two wire-line trolling outfits. I own just these two, and the massive bunker spoons attached to each are the only bunker spoons I have. This is because pulling these heavy hunks of metal on 200 feet of wire at 2 miles per hour for striped bass is about as fun for me as a root canal. But the fact remains that they catch big bass, and if I've absolutely exhausted every possibility for hooking them on live bait, dead bait, flies, or lures, I will break down and pull wire. Striper fishing, of course, is not the only game where desperate-measure tactics apply.
