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 seesss1 AMAZING!!
I love these, I have used these in cold clear water and warm dirty water and they catch fish, when I can catch anything on anything I go to this bait fish it real slow. I have caught large mouth and smallmouth. I use a spinning reel to flip it on big rocks at about 9ft and BOOM bass! I would recommend this bait to everyone. This is my favorite bait by far!

This product has totally changed my fishing experience. I used to be sore from casting spinner baits and crank baits all day. With the Zoom Fluke it's a simple flick of the wrist. I use only Watermelon and Watermelon Red. I've caught bass from 7"" to an 8lb plus hog. All of my friend now use the Fluke for every kind of fishing from bass to Walleye.

When I moved to Texas and met my husband, he taught me everything he knew about bass fishing. He only uses flukes, so I decided to buy him some of these Mag Super Flukes for Valentines day. They came just in time, and we spent Valentines day at one of our local fishing spots. In approximately 45 minutes, we caught 3 bass - two of which were in the 7-8 lb range! Needless to say, my husband was thrilled. We will definately be buying more!

This is one of the best shad imatations on the market, although many other corporations have attempted to copy this bait none have been successful. One tip i have is to never ever fish this bait with a flexible rod the action and jerking is just not the same. Fish this bait weightless for best fishing. I have also painted the super sized fluke to look like a trout and had amazing results. Just get some soft plastic paint and a picture of a trout and although i'm sure that at times it's not as good as a real swimbait it's almost as good.

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.
