Zoom Lizard - 8'' Creature Softbaits
Down here in Florida there's lizards all over the joint... I'm sure the Bass (which are some of THEE BEST in the nation) get a taste of 'em here and there. I got a greedy one on the Pumpkin Seed in two casts on a slow retrieve. Down here I'd say these ZOOMS are a must for anybody with the "fishin' bug" to have at the ready in their bag o' tricks.

SIMPLY PUT GREATEST LURE INVENTED
I'VE BEEN USING 8 INCH ZOOM MAGNUM LIZARDS FOR TEN YEARS. I'VE CAUGHT MORE HOG BASS WITH THEM, THAN ANY OTHER LURE. FISH EM SHALLOW OR DEEP, FAST OR SLOW SIMPLY PUT, THE BEST LURE EVER MADE FOR MY MONEY!!

These things are fantastic. I collected up a bunch of lizards off tthe bank at my hole, these matched the size and color perfectly. Ordered some, landed a 4lb first night I had them out and a 6lb the next morning.
I fish mine weightless on 8lb FC on crystal clear water. That setup lets me cast a mile and skip them under docks. With a 5/0 they'll float, with a 6/0 they swim just below the surface.
Great choice when you want to fish topwater, but need a truly realistic bait for ultra-clear water.
Only disadvantage, bass tend to kill off the tail and/or legs with short-strikes so plan on going through a few.

I just moved to Oklahoma and have found these lakes to be very different than the ones in Ga.I joined a T.A.G. league, fish that once a month and fish the jack pots every Wednesday. The fish on Skiatook see spinners and crank baits every day and are leary to strike them. I went back to basics and bought a pack of #35 8" lizards and got bit just about every cast. With only 15 minutes before check-in I landed a 14.16 pounder and won second place. This lizard works very well with the shakeyhead setup.
