Introduced in 1939, the Zara Spook's legendary ''walk-the-dog'' top water action has been written about more than any other fishing lure. To fish a Heddon Zara Spook, use a rhythmic, slack-line retrieve that makes the Zara Spook walk from left to right, back and forth. The Zara Spook's plump profile is a tantalizing target for bass and pike. Hooks: two #1/0.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Top-Water EVER! I buy all my Zara Spooks from BPS, I can't get enough of this lure! I have some on the way being delivered as I write this. It walks the dog like a champ, draws out strikes like no other top-water hard-bait I have ever used, even the Hula Popper. Just twitch and retrieve. My biggest bass ever has came off of one of these tipping the scales at 6 lbs 9oz. Nothing beats seeing a bass smash this off the top of the water. One disadvantage everyone that uses a spook will mention is that the out of box hooks, well, stink. I replace them with #1/0 Mustad KVD Elite 1X Strong 2X Short Silver Hooks (available on this site :D), and then keep the out of box hooks for emergencies. I don't add split rings though, no need with Mustads. My #1 go-to Lure! September 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible lure! Obviously these are great lures, so this review is probably anticlimactic, however I just caught a HUGE bass out of a very heavily pressured area with a baby bass colored Zara Spook. They are well made, the action is great, and they cast like Tarantino. Do yourself a favor a buy one of these amazing lures. September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Walking Bait The Zara Spook has great walking action, is easy to work and can be cast like a rocket November 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by One Fine Plug Very easy to walk this thing . I tried this plug for Stripers off of the Massachusetts coast. Let me tell you this plug worked when NOTHING( including live bait) else would. After a while everyone there came up to me and asked what I was using. They were shocked when I showed them this freshwater Spook. The only drawback was the hooks and the hangers rusted away so I had to give it a 4. September 16, 2013

Snook I live about 40 miles to your north in Adairsville..... get yourself a couple of poppers like the Xcalibur Zell Pop or the Strike King SpitNKing. Also pick up a walking lure like the Strike King Sexy Dawg or Heddon Zara Spook in a smaller size. Keep the colors simple... use translucent colors for clear water and sunny days and dark colors like bluegill or black for overcast days or stained water. Hope you catch a ton!

A: 
well depending on the size and depth of the pond, water clearity and plant growth, and fish species. my favor top wather lures and colors are rapala origional floting minnow/ black and gold, bigger the better. popper/ neon or natural pray colors and patterns, heddons zara spooks/ colors same idea as minnows and popper, heddons torpedos, frog colors, my favorite is the brown crawdad.

A: 
I agree, I think that a tiny torpedo would work, but I'd use a zara puppy instead of zara spook if you are fishing a pond, also depends on the minnow size.

A: 
A Zara spook or a Tiny Torpedo are excelent topwater lures for any pond if you are looking for bass and there is tons of help on how to use them properly and they are easy to create your own technigue. Any stickbait will work though since ponds are usualy more calm and lazy than lakes or rivers. The more rough the water is the more noise and speed the lure is a good rule of thumb. Buzzbaits do a good job if it is nightime or the water is rough, also they have the advantage of maximizing how many zones you fish since they are a fast retrieve.

My best advice is go with the classics and move from there to new designs. they are classics for a good reason.

Color will vary depending on the water clarity mainly, but there are many factors in choosing a lure color. the more murky the water the darker the lure is always a good bet. Thats why there are hundreds of colors for each lure type and nobody can suggest 1 color for everything.

Hope that helps you.

A: 
the heddon zara spook is undoubtedly a successful classic, but if the pond you fish doesn't have highly agressive bass or is heavily fished I wouldn't recommend this bait. Try something by xps brand, especially the XTS series I have had much success with that series. Try getting a color that is bass resembling, maybe a green color, and white is always a success. Maybe a chrome colored white with a black back perhaps. Get a zara spook too and test it out though.

Frog color?

Details: 
Is the natural frog color, not the bull frog color, only good when used in areas that have a lot of frogs or have lilly pads? Or can it be used around matted vegetation no mater how many frogs there are?

it can be used in any type of coverage, i have had success as far as 50yards from shore in open water. the water depth is also a factor that should be figured in. i have had strikes and landed fish in water that was 12 feet deep.

A: 
Depending on your school of thought, some think color matters, others say it doesn't matter at all. I would say throw the natural frog color wherever you feel, especially if it fits in. I have thrown that color in clear ponds and lakes with little vegetation and it works just as well as any other color. The idea is to match the surroundings, so go with your gut.

A: 
to be honest, i dont think the color on these things matters. i use alot of different colors and they all seem to work fine. im not really sure what this bait imitate exactly, but i would imagine it would be a dying minnow due to the skinny profile and side to side action. tight lines
