The Zara Puppy is a 3-inch version of Heddon's original Zara Spook - a bait that's been written about more than any other fishing lure due to its legendary ''walk-the-dog'' action. To fish the Zara Spook Puppy, use a rhythmic, slack-line retrieve that makes the Zara walk from left to right, back and forth. Hooks: two #6.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Spring Topwater! I recently moved to West Virginia, and since this has been the first Spring I've been able to dedicate a solid amount of time to fishing (I was in the Army for 5 years), I've put a lot of time, money, and research into what I'm fishing with. I've been fishing as often as possible for the past month, and literally the only thing I've been able to even get a hit on is the Zara Puppy in Bone. I've caught my first WV and OH bass on it, and where a bunch of my "Ol' Reliables" have failed, I've crushed the fish with this lure! I'm new to walk-the-dog lures, and it took me only a couple of casts to figure it out with the Puppy. And speaking of casts, the Puppy casts every bit as well as I could have hoped for, even into the wind! I couldn't be happier with the results I've had so far with this lure! April 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The classics never fail! I know these lures have been around forever, so I knew they had a good reputation. I picked up one, and they work great! Even though they look nothing like a frog or a typical topwater, they still work great. June 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good bait...With some adjustments This bait works great and casts a mile. The only down side is the hooks. After several uses they began to show wear and rust. I replaced the hooks with Mustad treble hooks and it works great. April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by You wont regret this! I use this lure all the time and i love it. After a summer of using this, I gotta say, I have to get a new one because the paint is starting to chip off a little. I have the baby bass and trust me, it definitely gets the job done with no problem. March 2, 2013

A: 
You need to use a "walk the dog" technique. If you dont know what this is, just look it up on youtube. It takes a little bit to get used to but once you figure it out, it'll definitely work in your favor. When i use this, its usually in the morning, and anytime of the year works fine preferably on a warm day tho. And I've used mine in almost every situation, open water, over weeds and other cover.

A: 
Anytime is really good. The question is speed. Depending on the time of day, time of year, and water clarity. For baits like this, I recommend trying various cadences. Sometimes a turn and burn version is great, other times, a reel/reel/pause (varying times on pause) will work. As for where, well, anywhere that bass is lurking. Main thing I hone in on in the spring is when shad hit the top of the water. When they are doing that, there is a predator below. Throw it beyond that spot and bring it over them. I've caught countless bass with this technique. Hope this helps.

The hole in the front of the lure is in fact supposed to be there. It helps with the action and noise.

A: 
Yes. They all seem to have these holes. Actually if you look closely, you will see that it is fille with a metalic substance. Its probably where the tiny metal rod is inservted while on the factory machine getting paitned and rotated. Don't worry, its not a defect.

Does it still have the ring to tie your line onto? Sounds like that is missing. Either way, this bait is made to float, and sound like it is a defect.

A: 
Some come this way and some don't. It's not a defect and water doesn't come in from it.
If it really bothers you then put a small drop of super glue to cover up the hole.

Tip, add a feathered treble to the back and work it erratically, and vary they cadence with pauses. BOOM! BASS!

A: 
Sometimes bass are in just watch mode. If you are getting it everytime in the same place on different days then you nered to look closer around to see what the bass' food source is there. It may just be that they have plentiful baitfish swiiming around (switch to spinner or swim bait) or perhaps its a heavily fished area and they have all seen topwater a thousand times. Try switching to a Yamamato senko worm or a flashy jerkbait, Whateever the case, I have fished many ponds and lakes where bass just aren't topwater feeders in those locations- It can be very frustrating try to figure it out though. Good luck.

A: 
Some fish are just timid like that and just want to check it out. Thats just how it is, unfortunately. The best thing you can do in a situation like that is give the bait small twitches (so you're not scaring them) and be extremely patient, work it very slowly.

A: 
It's not that easy of a question but most of the time, varying your pause retrieve and speed will help. It may not be slower but faster. Let the other fish that strike tell you. Pay attention to how your cadence is. If it's a specific speed, try duplicating that speed. Maybe it's the time between pauses. Bass can't stand when a lure stops for longer than 10 seconds. As soon as you move the lure again, you get the strike. Situations calls for different things. It could also be the lure color. Sometimes, the bass wants it but the color isn't what it likes. A simply change of lure color & you may get strikes from everywhere. Bass can be fickle sometimes. The lure itself just may not be right. Change the lure too. Keep trying until you get that strike, then follow up with that with similar colors etc...
Hope this helps.

Either fish i slower, or us a stop and go what works for me is doing 2 or 3 sweeps pausing for 3 or 4 seconds, and doing 2 or 3 more.
