For schooling Bass that are busting Shad on top, which of these two baits do you think would be best:

Heddon Fearher Dressed Super Spook Jr, 3 1/2", 1/2 oz
or
Heddon Zara Puppy, 3", 1/4 oz.

If you have used one that works well for schooling Bass, I will appreciate a reply.

God Bless

The Zara Puppy. I've caught so many fish on one bait that the back hook fell off.

Well, that would. E the Jr because it weight 1/2 oz.

Topwaters are great and more fun, but I have better luck with a hard jerkbait on schoolers.

Got in to schoolers out here in San Diego this week. We were throwing an underspin with a Fluke Jr on it and whacking them. Match the hatch. Jerk it and reel it just under the surface. FUN!!

In addition to both of those baits I would also have a square bill or a rattle trap tied on. I have caught a lot of schooling bass on those as well. Throw them out and burn them back.

Match the hatch! Something you can cast far and work fast so they won't get a good look at it.

My friend likes hard jerkbaits. I like a small swimbait; the underspin w/ 3" paddletail or fluke jr works too.
