    I don't think I ever saw a gold gator spoon.

    I just rinse off every spoon (Gators wouldn't work for us...) in fresh water and carefully allow them to dry before they ever go back in a tackle box... If they need cleaning, the stuff I use is Bartender's Friend - available in any grocery store.
    It will remove rust marks, etc - without harming any chrome or gold finish...

    When I used to use them ( Johnsons ...not Gator ) ...this works...

    Me too, Johnson's too, never had any luck with gator spoons. Caught box car loads of fish on the Johnson Sprite though.

    i soak all of my lures and hooks in a coffee can filled with half h2o and half simple green. i like trokar circle hooks but because they aren't cheap i started soaking them in this mixture and they stay razor sharp and don't corrode AT ALL. even eats the bait pieces off the hooks. i change the solution about every other month. oh, and i also soak bait knives and pliers in it too. great stuff. give it a try.
