Default Coyote Spoon or Wordens FST?

I was going through my tackle box getting ready to fish the Columbia in the am and came across a Coyote 4.0 and a Wordens FST #5 and was wondering if anyone uses these to fish for fall chinook on the Columbia?

Got a whole roll of FST's/Manistee's rigged for when the softest current just starts to flow out.

Got another roll of Brad's/Alvin's rigged for when she starts to flow in earnest.

People were fishing FST's, Mantasee, McMahon's and Freaks (be careful when you google "freaks") before the person who created the Alvin was BORN!!!!

They all work at times!

Great pic Eyefish, that fish wasn't going anywhere!!

A size #3 FST can put on a clinic through out the tide, especially the slow edges. This year more than 55lbs of summer nookie hit the box in under 30 minutes of soak time on a #3 brass/chrome.

Did you tape up an FST or did it come in that color combination? Thanks for your time.

I've done well on summer-run kings using 4.0 yotes. Grenn / Nickel, Green / Prism.

Didja notice the NASTY barb too?

I believe we were fishing NON selective that fall.

If it bit, it died.

FST is one of the most underrated, unsung spoons out there. It works and works well. I'll be fishing them a lot at B10. Red/white and cerise and white are two personal favorites.
