Good Morning! Needing some help with these guys. I remember fishing with these in the early 90's. I cannot find a maker or manufacturer listed on these little topwater 'jumpers'. I loved fishing with them, walking the dog in front of the spook because they caught many a fish. Does anyone know if these are even available online? Who originally made them and/or where can I get more? I want to use them but I don't want to lose them, rust em out, etc. It may be that I have to learn to make my own.

They are great for topwater action and schooling fish for doubles. A lot of the time the fish would hit the front runners before they would hit the spook.

I learned a while back that there was a balance when throwing this situation. Went with a smaller spook or popper with a M/H rod and it was more balanced. Larger spook acted more like a an anchor than it helped with the action. Caught a ten pounder at O.H.Ivie a long time ago with this set up on a pre-fish for a tournament. Went back to the same area but she was nowhere to be found.
