Recently found a great spot for fishing Spooks. Tried putting my all-time favorite Spook patterns on a few blanks. Not cleared and waiting on amphibian style eyes for the Bullfrog. Still working on a Flash Spook pattern. When that's done its topwater time! Can't wait texas

Nope its foil. Finally able to put foil on a lure, but still lots of room for improvement.
Wondering what hooks to put on them. Factory Spooks have long shank hooks...don't really like them, but maybe there's a reason??

hey bois i've got lots of reptile eyes if you want to get some to finish that bait. just let me know and we can meet at the chic filet.
do you want a couple dressed trebles for the backs of those. you pick the color scheme.

That sounds great...was thinking we should get together and toss a few thoughts on existentialism around, or just discuss lure stuff grin. I would love a few of those eyes before I spend $$ on a bunch of them. Dressed trebles....fantastic. Maybe something yellowish for the frog and white/silverish for the black shiner...pretty sure somebody will offer a few ideas on the dressed treble colors.

Bone is absolutely a good top-water color..especially on a baby torpedo 2cents
Appreciate the hook info...really don't like the factory hooks much.

This is maybe my favorite topwater in my favorite color scheme. I think it would be deadly on a spook.

i'll see what i can dream up for the trebles. how long are those baits?

Looks like a fathead minnow to me.




Colors: Back and upper sides dark olive to dark gray, becoming white to yellow on undersides with a dusky or gray midlateral band. Thin dark lines outline scale in a distinctive herring-bone pattern that is most notable midlaterally. Two horizontal bands on sides; upper band yellowish and the lower bluish. Looks like a great pattern to put on a topwater or shallow diving lure. Thanks for the reply CCTX. texas

This is my Money Spook that I do all the tweaking to. I would really like two just like it but with those scales outlined in Chrome.

Got one on the bench that is pretty close....called a Jap Flash Shad. Japanese painters added a little detail to the Flash Spook and I used that pattern as a base for a Flash Shad idea. It doesn't have the foil scales you're looking for. Currently out of spook style blanks but will be getting more soon. I'll try foiling a couple and putting your Flash Shad pattern over the foil...should look really cool thumb. Thanks for the reply Donald. I'll post pictures when I get 'em. texas
