Rated 4 out of 5 by GRANDPAMEL Good Bait Good fishing weed lines in clear water. Make long casts and vary the retrieve until you find out what the fish want. Easy to use and catches fish. Good for fishermen of all skill levels. January 16, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by flatsmaster13 Flapp'n shads for snook I take the white color and paint the tail chartreuse, and when flipped in the mangroves, snook blow it up. The same color is also great for trout on the flats. Take a knife and slit the tail halfway from the front to the back and it gives it a great buzzbait action when you reel it in slowly. Great lure for fresh or salt. November 1, 2010

Details:do u fish like a super fluke or walk the dog and what size on hook for the 4 in version
Top 25 Contributor
A:Twitch it a few times then let it drop - reel in the slack while it does this b/c you may get a hit then just repeat that again.
A:I use 1/8 or 1/4 oz jig head with the hook entering the slot cavity then exiting through the top. A steady retrieve will engage the flappin' flutter in the tail and draw strikes. different weights and speeds for varying depths.
A:I generally fish the 6" and i use a 5/0 worm hook walkin the dog and then sometimes just letting it drift through the current. With a 4" I would step way down to a 2/0 gamakatsu superline. They are remarkable for hard mouthed fish.
A:I have never been a big fan of the super flukes, the magnums are ok, and yes you can fish it the same way (jerk, retrieve, jerk, jerk, retrieve) or you can let it sink and twitch it a little on a slow retrieve. As for the hook size, i use a 3/0 on the 6" so id probbably go with a 2/0 or even a 1/0 on the 4", so long as its Extra Wide Gap hook.
