Rated 5 out of 5 by nepafisherman killer!!!
i started fishing these baits more last year. glad i did! rigged weightless texas style they kill for me. cast them out to fallen trees or structure and hang on. let them hang in the water then very lightly jerk the rod tip. the bait will do the rest. the fluke will dart side to side. make sure the hook is straight in the body. i also like to use a swivel with about 8 inches of leader. stops line twist. i also like to use spinning tackle for this presentation. in stained water the bubblegum works very good for me. last year one day the bite was slow i switched to the bubblegum and hit 3 bass in 3 casts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roosterpooster Good product
When fished properly the fluke is a great fish catcher.One of my main baits.I have never fished a lake that it wasn't a good producer. My only negative
Comments are the costs.....I can purchase them from another vendor for almost a dollar saving per pack and due to the softness of the head of the fluke you really go though a lot of them

Rated 4 out of 5 by BostonBassBoy Realistic bait minnow action
Was introduced to the fluke while on a fishing TX fishing trip. Very closely mimics the behavior of a wounded or confused bait minnow. Slightly negatively buoyant with a erratic back and forth action as you twitch on the retrieve. I find them to be as effective as live shiners here in Massachusetts without all the hassle of live bait bucket, runs to the bait store, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dcdub rig it right
This bait is deadly if rigged correctly. I rig a 6' light action rod with 10lb red powerpro, about a 2' fluorocarbon leader 10lb test, with a weight less size 1 or 2 red wide gap hook (the smallest available). And here is the trick, insert the hook from the bottom of the bait about a quarter of an inch from the tip. It's not weedless but the added action from a single hook point is highly effective. This rig accounted for about half of 198 fish caught on a recent potomac river trip, fish up to 5lbs. Tighy lines!
