I've fished the Zoom Super Fluke for years with success.
Has anyone ever used the Magnum Fluke?
If so, do you fish the Magnum Fluke any different from a regular Super Fluke?

Prespawn weightless in 6' - 10' in ditches or secondary points in spawning flats. Dead stick...deadly!

Caught all 3 of my DD’s on magnum flukes. 2 on t-rig, 1 on c-rig.

You will get less bites, you won’t catch dinks, average fish for me is 3-4 pounds. If you fish where the big ones live, and have a good idea on where they are, throw a mag fluke in green pumpkin or watermelon red wth scent.

I fish the mag fluke quite a bit. Lost a monster on one last month at CB. Had a 10.5 first thing that morning on a Thumper then an hour later lost a freakin giant on a mag fluke. Still in therapy over the whole ordeal hammer

They also work great on the big Scrounger heads.

Weightless, Texas rig, Carolina rig, and Arkie jig head. They catch big fish!
Owner 6/0 hook works very well.

It is a big bulky bait. When the BIG ONE got away from me I got my bait back and it had balled up on the hook and "rehooked" itself down near the tail. When a big fish takes a soft plastic bait it is all wadded up in the fish's mouth. You set the hook as hard as you can but sometimes this will happen. I tried several hooks and lost a couple more fish.

I finally settled on this one. I fish it weightless unless the wind is blowing then I add a tiny bit of weight to the belly of the hook. I get the tiny tungsten weights from River A Tackle on here.

The free-swinging weight gives the fish a different look. The two biggest fish I have hooked this spring have both come on this setup.

I have fished them a bunch. I use a Gamakatsu superline offset EWG hook 5/0 or 6/0 with much success.
I use this hook with braid, flouro and mono.
