Heddon® Super Spook Jr. Hardbaits
Part of the legendary Zara Spook family famous for its ''walk-the-dog'' action, Heddon's Super Spook Jr. features an internal rattle, super strong hardware and a very durable body construction. Jimmy Houston improved this legendary lure with a horizontal construction body design that is destined to catch the eyes of game fish and anglers. To fish this topwater legend, use a rhythmic, slack-line retrieve that makes the Zara walk from left to right and back and forth. Lures are equipped with two Excalibur Rotating Treble Freshwater Hooks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by fishingJP Proven Fish Catcher I have fished top water baits for a long time and some of my friends who I fish with are puzzled by my skills with poppers and torpedo type baits I think I just love to fish them and have a high level of confidence with them and that equates to success. I have spoken with many other fishermen about top water baits and they have all suggested the spook family to me so I gave it a try. I have had some success with this bait but have not fared as well with the spook as I have with just about any popper. Am I doing it wrong, do I just need a little practice? All things said this has been a decent lure for me I am giving it a 3 for now. November 4, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by riv111 Great Lure This lure works great. I am using it in the hot summer weather in Arkansas and it is catching fish. If you walk the dog with it the lure looks great and causes strikes. August 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by FishinmanNate Topwater Classic I have used spooks for years now and getting a Super Spook Junior was a great idea. I have many Spooks but my favorite one to throw is the Spook Jr. Its smaller profile brings in those reluctant bass well, and the topwater strikes can be brutal. This lure covers so much water extreamly effective deep or shallow, Brings in aggressive fish for the fight you will never forget and its fun to see the action your putting on the lure and to see the strikes. I prefer natural colors with a white belly bass seem to love just about any color with the white belly. This lure is a Classic and should be in every fisherman's tackle box. I have caught countless fish of the Zara Spooks. August 20, 2012

A:I'd go with the "Match the Hatch" mentality of the fly fishermen. Look around your area and see what frogs are around. Get one that looks similar and hold on tight! Good luck!!!
A:I find that I get more hits with a sexy shad color and patterns that replicate bluegill and baby bass colorations. But I'm fishing retention ponds and a few natural ponds mostly, with murky conditions. You may have better luck with other colors if your conditions vary. But those are probably good starts.
Details:I fish from a canoe, seated close to the water, and use a 6' or 6'6" M trigger rod w/ a 6.4:1 ratio baitcaster. I usually use braid w/ a fluoro leader, or just braid. Sometimes 12lb mono. Any suggestions are welcome. I just ordered 2 of these and some Scum Frogs. Thanks.
A:SOUNDS LIKE YOUR ROD A REEL COMBO SHOULD WORK WELL I AM A FAN OF POWER PRO BRAID WITH THESE LURES AS LONG AS YOU KNOW HOW TO WALK THE DOG YOU WILL BE JUST FINE HANG ON TO YOUR ROD THOUGH.

A:If you can't afford to get anything else, braid will suffice. It won't act the best as monofilament is the best for topwater.
I would also suggest a medium action to the rod. The length is fine (I use a 6'6" medium with a spinning rod mostly) and the reel might be a little too high of a ratio (it becomes a little more difficult to walk the dog with too high of a ratio-still can be done but will require you to practice more. If you want really good action but don't want to respool, get monofilament and use that as the leader. Fluoro won't perform well with topwater (except for buzzbaits). For frogs, look into the KVD or SPRO versions over the Scum Frogs. While I caught many bass with them, they have some seriously inherent flaws that had loss of legs, taking in of water, eyelet's pulling away from the plastic. The two I mentioned will also allow you to walk the dog as well ;-)
A:This actually sounds like a really good set up for this bait. A medium action will keep from pulling the bait out of the mouth of the fish, and the 6.4:1 gear ratio should provide enough power, while giving a bit of speed to cast into thick muck. Braid is going to be your best option when it comes to line because it is highly resistant to abrasion and it will float.
Details:I fish smallies all the time but lost my only spook to a 6 pounder.... what couler is the best fish catcher?
A:I have quite a few of these and just decided to write a review because they are so awesome and from my experience Texas Shad is the number one performer for Large & Small mouth but I've only caught one Kentucky bass on that color
A:Yes. If there is any doubt, look at the hooks. Fresh water will be bronze, Saltwater will be silver.
A:No, I;ve not seen a super spook jr. marked for salt water or fresh water. they can be used in either.
A:There are both Saltwater, and freshwater versions... I'd imagine the only real difference would be the type of metal on the lure, in order to make it more corrosion resistant in the salt. If you have a hard time finding the different types, just go to search and type 'spook', it should come up with the list of available options.
A:My saltwater super spook jr's say "SALTWATER" in small letters on them.
A:They can be used for fresh and salt as long as you know how to change the hooks.

A:The Super Spook Jr. "... are equipped with two Excalibur Rotating Treble Freshwater Hooks.".

A:The saltwater version comes with a slightly different hook other than that the actual Super Spook Jr. is exactly the same. They work in both freshwater and saltwater regardless what model you buy. Many people buy the saltwater models because of the colors offered and use them in strictly freshwater.. its a sales thing, the saltwater version comes with hooks that are supposed to stand up to the salt water better and won't corrode. Just buy the color you like the best, start throwing it and catch big fish! Good Luck!
A:The one w/ two sets of trebles.
A:The super spook jr. is 3.5 inches long and 1/2 oz. The regular spook is 5 inches long and 7/8 of an ounce. they are labeled on the Bass Pro Page.
A:The Junior is specified in its name as 'Spook Jr'.... If it doesn't say 'Jr', then its the standard super spook.
A:Its the middle sized one. And in my opinion the better of the line.
