I'm getting redundant but SWEET!

 

It's had to tell from the pics since they have some perspective but how much are you tapering the length of Spooks?

Hi Bill

 

Thanks!!

 

All the spooks I have put in the gallery so far are 5 1/4 inches and have a bit more taper on tail than nose. And none on the body. This bait is 4 1/2 inches long and much smaller in diameter Plus it has a taper starting at head and goes all the way to the tail. So this one is different. But works equally well. Weighting of these is critical.

First consideration always is what do want from the bait. Topwater/ diver? Then , what sort of action do you want? Fast / slow? Here we want topwater and we want walk the dog . That means keep it light and tail weight the bait. How much and exactly where will be determined by lure shape, wood used  and where you hang your hooks. I used the super spook to guide me on this build. I liked the action of the bait. So, I placed one in a bowl of water . Next, I weighted my bait to sit the same in the water.
