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.
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.

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.

Top Notch Bass Catcher
This lure is awsome. Great top water action by zig zagging and creating a wake on the surface. You can actually hear the rattles knocking every time you twitch it and it atracts Bass better than most of my top water lures. I have lots of confidence in this lure during the early morning and late evening.
I use the Foxy Shad Color and the Black Shad.
Just keep twitching the rod tip while reeling in (Walk the Dog) and the Bass will smash it.

fish catching machine
It is a big fish catching machine. I used to use a pop-r to start and finish my day at the water. But every since I change to this lure I have never look back. This one is the one that starts my day and finish my day. The conditions have to be right for it to work though. The shape makes walking the dog easy. The rattle bring fish from down deep. This lure gets hit a lot and hard. All you need is a calm morning before the sun is up and bright or an evening whit the sun setting. It also works well with and overcast day. I have heard people catching big at mid day. However, I have not tried that. This lure is very durable. It has a great hook ratio. Fish sometimes will miss but come back for it right away. Many times it gets hit at soon as it hits the water. Wait to fill tension on the line before you set the hook. Once the hook is set the fish won’t come unbutton. I had lost two of this lure due to a line brakeage though. Over all it is a fantastic lure. I had used all colors and the one that had work the best on all types of water is the bleeding shad. The combination of flash sound and side to side action is just too much for big fish to resist.

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.
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 ;-)
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.
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
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.
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!
