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. The Zoom Super Fluke™, as well as 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.
All I use!
Can I tell you something? This is the only bait I use period. I use the Jr and its white color variants. I don't know why I carry a tackle box around with me when i could carry a pack of these and some Texas rig hooks. I know it may sound crazy but this is seriously the ONLY lure i use to catch fish. It's so life like that Ive actually seen bait fish schooling with this bait as I'm reeling it in at the end of my retrieve. The biggest Largemouth Bass of my life was caught on this lure as well as the biggest Smallmouth, just today actually. I catch Rock Bass, White bass, and one Longnose Gar on these things! Just walk the dog for a bit and let it die with this baby and you will bang bass all day long. You don't know me and I don't know you but you're really going to have to trust me on this one. This is the best lure I have ever seen, I don't know why it works so well it just does. Please try it!

best bait in michigan
i fish this bait in michigan when bass fishing and i catch the mess out of um. i always listen to local shops as to what baits to use when i try new lakes. i use them and dont catch a fish, switch to flukes and i slay um all day. they are such a blast to use too, i love when the fish jump all of they way out of the water and smash the fluke!
i just caught a 5lb 11oz bass on the fluke.
White worked great in the spring and i mostly used watermelon red flake in the summer and this fall

Have used thousands of these flukes. It appears the Mardi Gra flukes do not hold up as well as all of the other colors of flukes.

Always #1 for me
The ZOOM Super Fluke is by far the most reliable bait on the market. I wouldn't even launch my boat without several bags in my tackle storage...you can take that to the bank!

I'm going after river smallies (many fish per day but fairly small) and I want to set up a double rig (kvd's zulu rig) using these flukes and the ZTOO's which eliminates the screw lock hooks. I'd like to find a hook that doesn't tear these baits up while still giving it good action. Does anyone have any experience with the Mustad Ultra Lock, The Skip Jack Hooks or something else they prefer? Thanks, Mike
I use these baits a couple ways, mostly by skipping them around docks, timber, and other visible weeds, and by far the best is as follows. Skip the fluke, say to the front of a dock, and let it sit and sink for a couple of seconds. Then, quickly jerk it once or twice to give it the dying minnow look. If a bass is going to hit it, he usually does it then.
Well FloridaFishing386 I fish the Fluke with a Gamakatsu offset shank worm EWG hook from a 1/0 up to a 7/0 depending on the size of the fluke. I Texas rig it, and tend to fish it more with spinning gear, it's easier to cast and work at times especially when skipping it under cover. But also can be fished with casting gear up to 12lb. test. Just twitch it like a jerk bait. Can weight it down with a keel hook or nail weight.
You will have to find out how the fish want the bait that day. If the bite is tough you can fish it weightless with short jerks and let it sit in front of them and then another 2 or three jerks. If the bite is on put it on a jig head and work it fast.
a bass is a bass is a bass ! Don't let location fool you anything that works in the south will work in the north. If you have grass use green colors watermellon, watermellon/red. If this doesn't work use shad colors they work everywhere.
it depends on what the bass have as a food source. i have always had luck on an Arkansas shiner and especially the baby bass. you might want to try the white as well. the size usually depends on the time of year during the summer when the fish will hit anything it doesnt really matter but like in winter i would go with the 5 in. because the big bass are lazy. they would rather use all their energy on eating something big to fill them up than to eat a bunch of small fish and waste their energy.
Find out what your fish are feeding on and match that forage as closely as possible. Since this bait works best in relatively clear water, matching your hatch will probably be your best option. I catch a ton of fish on Pearl and Arkansas Shiner colors.
I would forget a Fluke if the water clarity is not good (at least two feet of visibility). These baits excel in clear water; it's a sight bait, alot like a suspending jerkbait. If you are looking for something that gives you a similar presentation, use a black 5" Senko or Zoom Trick Worm
i have had my best luck on the Arkansas shiner and the baby bass but it usually depend on the food source of the fish. if their are a bunch of bait fish like shad i use the shineror the white pearl but if the bass eat mostly bream and other bass i go with the baby bass
Of course! But...I would suggest colors more crayfish and bluegill with this rig during the summer than silver, because shad are generally schooling and active and Carolina rigs are slower.That's why I prefer to just use a weighted hook or bullet and Texas rig it with silver colors cast straight into the shad balls. Super flukes will work for Carolina rigs, but no better than your favorite worm or creature so I in the spirit of using a bait for maximum effectiveness, I generally do not use super flukes on Carolina rigs. I think they work best finessed, Tx rigged, or on drop shot. That's just me- Let the fish tell you the rest.
i just throw it weightless and let it sink to the bottom. usually the bass will already pick the bait up but if not twitch it in a 123 method then lett it sink back down and just keep repeatting the method over and over.
It's obviously a topwater fishing technique. You can buy baits like a Zara Spook or a Heddon One Knocker and the bait actually walks itself. Otherwise when using a popper or popping frog you can always work the beat with ur retrieve. Use a three stop rotation when reeling, so in one rotation of ur handle, u stop and start 3 times. It takes a few casts to get the hang of it but once you see the action on the bait you'll understand the dynamics of it. If i was you, I would get a spook or a one knocker and let the bait do it for you, and those baits catch a lot of fish on topwater.
The nature of a "fluke" is to dart side-to-side pretty much on its own. But the correct way to get any bait to "walk-the-dog" is to jerk the bait slightly, usually with a downward motion, pause, and then jerk the bait again. The bait should automatically dart in a side-to-side motion. A slow methodic jerk and pause will produce a better "walk" than a quick jerk and pause.
