Why the heck do these lure companys have to make so many colors.....dang it....sometimes I just say screw it and click out of the site....

I'm lisrening to you guys so I'm going to get something light and another in a darker color.....at leasr they are not to expensive.....

Btw....do the hooks need to be changed out, just wondering...

On Super Spooks I'd trade out for #2 round bend gammie trebles. Some people like the EWG styles as well.

I'm a fan of black or shad pattern spooks. Never been a huge spook fisherman in general but used to have a lot of fun with the black spook at Santa Margarita in the evenings back in the day.

The Vixen is a great topwater bait as well if you are looking to complement your super spook. Spotted bass eat up the Vixen.

thanks Rob...

why is it that there are so many missed bites when fishing top water baits?

Many times they miss b/c they're just slapping at it. They'll come up and turn RIGHT before grabbing it. It looks like the bait goes under but that's just b/c of the commotion they make. Frustrating!

Sometimes they'll actually just bump the bait also. This happens more with frogs. I've even had a day when I didn't get a single hook up but they would hit my frog up to 3 feet in the air. It was crazy.
