Salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite
Enhanced it with a swimming paddle tail

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 Fluke 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.
Zoom has taken one of the most popular and effective fishing lures to date and enhanced it with a swimming paddle tail. The Zoom Swimmin' Super Fluke is a true swimmer and is recommended for schooling bass or as a search tool that's handy for locating fish. For schooling bass, race the Zoom Swimmin’ Super Fluke back to the boat, just under the surface. Or, fish a weighted swimbait hook and swim it deeper in the water column. The Zoom Swimmin' Super Fluke's soft texture makes it perfect for rigging with an exposed hook for weedless applications.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coolhand1 Works great
With the mild winters, our lake has grown a lot of vegetation making it difficult to fish with lures having exposed hooks. This lure comes through the vegetation with ease and the action and color really attract the fish. I love it.

This is a great lure. I catch bass between 3 and 6 pounds on these. All i do is put a jig head through the front and reel in. Affordable and durable. I have personally found that baby bass works best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnathan13 Solid Lure Catches fish
The Zoom fluke was a somewhat dormant lure in my tackle box until the "Swimmin" Fluke. As shad and other various bait fish have reproduced and the numbers are on the rise i figured what the heck. Why not give it another go. I was fishing a lake that i have struggle at to get bites as of late. The area that I fish is about 1-4 foot deep with some vegetation that bait fish spawn and flock to for cover. the vegetation only grows about 2 ft. half that of the water depth so conventional lures such as crankbaits and texas rigged soft plastics seem to vanish and occasionally become tangled. So naturally this lure considering the surroundings and bait fish in the area it was a perfect fit. I fish it weightless and even swim it on as a to water just to grab attention then fish it like an injured minnow. I have been to the lake three times in all and caught my limit twice. I have even out fished some of the regulars. The color i use is smokin shad on a 1/o trokar hook. It is an extremely effective bait this time of year and if surrounding permit. Even though i have had success i will not stray from what has worked in the past. I just see it as a valuable asset to my fishing arsenal. P.S. it works great for spotted bass in the Rivers along with an H&H double spinner. Now thats a river combo that just cant be beat. Hope my reveiw was helpful and insightful. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaybee Good bait, but fragile
I bought a package of these, and have used them on my favorite lake for pre-spawn smallmouth. They hit it with some real authority. However, one fish usually destroys the bait. And, with only five to a package, this can be an issue. I can usually get the bait back together with a lighter, but I have to untie the hook, melt the bait a little, re-insert the hook (I've been using the wide-gap with a weighted portion of the bend), and re-tie.

I think when the water is warmer or if u use them for Alabama rig they are worth it. When its colder though bass don't like a lot of action and u would be better off with a normal fluke. I would suggest having both in the tackle box.
I primarily fish small shallow ponds near my house ... and I fish it weightless using a weedless hook. I simply let it fall, then a slow pull and pause retrieval.
I also like and have used the regular Flukes, but after using these and with the success I've had ... I'm hooked!!
Yes, they cost more, and maybe you would have just as much luck with a regular Fluke. But, I'm a big believer that you fish better when you fish baits with which you have confidence, and right now, there is no similar bait that I am more confident using.
rig on a jig head or worm hook or through head cast out ,let sink to desired depth reel in ,try different speeds,try a split shot in front of hook,let sink to bottom with jig head then rip,meant to swim as name dictates
No. The truth is that Senkos do the work for you. Throw it out and let it hit the bottom. The strikes occur on the drop about 95% of the time so be ready. If there is no strike, raise the rod tip from the 9 o'clock position to 12 and let it fall again. All you want to do is raise the bait off the bottom a few feet and let it fall again. Don't jerk it because you kill the action. Oh, just stick with the original Senko because I really don't think that the paddle tails are worth the money either. By the way, the fluke is awesome. Good luck.
