Heddon Wounded Zara Spook
Honestly purchased this lure expecting to never catch a single fish off of it, but I had a gift card to bass pro and thought I might as well try it as I'd heard they work. Went to the lake this weekend and got a bite with this lure on my first cast. I probably caught over half my fish on this lure, including the biggest bass of the weekend(3lb 6oz). My buddies were threatening to kick me off the boat and steal the lure since I only had one with me. It's just simply amazing watching a bass come up out of the water and explode on one of these things, you just can't beat that feeling.

I have only ever caught one fish when using this. I contribute it mostly to the areas I fish and the fact I fish from the bank. One day fishing a new spot and not getting bit at all. I decided to tie this lure on, my friends and I now refer to it as the shark. The 3rd cast I threw near some drift wood in the water, about 20 yards from the bank. A bass exploded on it just when it had just sat for a few seconds, I missed him though. I kept twitching and ripping bringing it in. I am not doubting the same bass hit again about 4 yards out and I got him that time. It was the biggest bass I have caught since living and fishing in Ohio. Around 18 inches weighing somewhere around 3 pounds maybe a little more, beautiful fish. I use blackshore minnow color. This lure works if you get into the bass hitting on top water.

When i first ordered this lure out of the BPS catalog i wasn't sure it would catch anything. I had been hearing a lot about prop baits from the pros and in magazines so i decided to give this one a try. The first day i used it i caught nothing, this same pattern continued until about a month later on a cool windy day with overcast skies. I tossed it to a point and jerked it two or three times and then WHAM, a nice 2.5 or 3 pounder blew up on it. Ever since then, this has been my number one go to bait when there are overcast skies and the water is choppy. The only bad thing about this lure is that it spins when you pull it in, but the fish don't seem to mind it.

Best Topwater Bait Ever
I purchsed this topwater lure for the first time in 2006. I have never caught so many quality Largemouth Bass in my 35+ years of fishing. Unfortunately/Fortunately I need to replace it due to the extreme beating this lure has endured. I live in New England where we have a fairly short (I don't Ice Fish) fishing season. I now prefer this lure over the Zara Spook.
