There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom baits. The difference is undeniable. For those who love to fish--and catch--there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish) and salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite.
The Mag Super Fluke is a beefed up version of Zoom's popular Super Fluke soft plastic. Offering a plump yet streamlined shape with lifelike baitfish split tail, the Mag Super Fluke jerkbait is virtually impossible to fish wrong. Effective fished weightless and twitched like a fleeing baitfish or rigged weedless to fish cover and structures.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luremaster2000 Great all around lure!
Very good on largemouth bass...But, if you want to catch small largemouth, crappie,sunfish,etc. you should cut about a centimeter off the tail.If you are fishing from a dock (3-10 feet of water), one way to catch fish with this is to use it like a jig on a bass nest except not on the bottom in the weeds.

Great as a surface bait and add a weighted hook to get down deeper. Bait will want to rise so get a heavy weighted hook if you want it deeper than 2 ft.

These work SO Well!! You can "walk the dog" at the surface or bounce it along the bottom. It goes through weeds and branches pretty well too. The only problem with them is that the lure is only good for 2 or 3 fish because they get torn up pretty easily. Bass love these things.

I use the mag Zoom fluke for Florida Strain bass most of the time.I also use it to catch regular large mouth bass in other lakes.I use a Bass Pro Shop XPS Magna O'shaughnessy 5/0 which i found to be the best hook for this fluke

Yes it will If you know the type of shad you are imitate it will work. Bass are always feeding on shad except for during the winter, a crayfish pattern will preform better in the winter. Shad are about 1/3 of a bass's diet, so just match the type of shad in your area and they will work.
I always try to "match the hatch" of local forage fish. If shad are present, use a shad color and size that is appropriate. If bass fry are the forage, select accordingly. I tend to go larger than the typical forage to attract larger fish and it has worked well for me. As for hook selection, I like a heavy wide gap hook in a size 5/0 for bass as it allows the best hookup ratios for me. You can use keel weighted, or plain hooks to impart the desired sink rate. I almost always use a weighted hook to cover the water column effectively.
4/0 Gamakatzu hooks. No sinker. Pick a color that mimics what your targeted fish normally eat, but don't be afraid to experiment. You may discover something that the fish like that only YOU will know about.
