Heddon Zara Spook

SKU: 025436000158

The Heddon Zara Spook is a 4 1/2 inch, 1/2 ounce topwater walker that has been helping anglers put fish in the boat for over 75 years. First put on the market in 1939, the Zara Spook is the original "walk-the-dog" bait and its design has remained roughly the same since its introduction. To use this bait, simply cast it out, put a little slack in the line, and then subtly and rhythmically manipulate the rod tip with your wrist as you reel it in.

This technique works particularly well at dusk and dawn and produces that wake-inducing walking action that elicits aggressive topwater strikes from lurking predators such as bass, redfish, trout, pike, and striper. And with its pre-rigged 1/0 treble hooks a strong hookset is practically guaranteed.

Despite hundreds of attempts to replicate it, the Zara Spook remains the true king of topwaters. Grab one today and find out why the Spook is the classic topwater lure!
