Anyone know where I can find a fluke style bait with no slit/ hook cavity in it?

Thanks, but those are very different from a fluke.

I'm looking for specifically the fluke shape and tail in a solid body.

part of the action of the fluke is the "hook slot"

you can probably get a custom pour, though it would be pricey

The Zoom fluke is shaped like it is due to the hook slot design

What I would consider doing
—get some mend it or pvc glue and glue the cavity closed on a regular fluke or the Bass Pro fluke type lure

Then, just fish them as is; or you could consider making a negative mold of your glued shut lure with Plaster of Paris and pour your own

I might be wrong, but wasn't the original Zoom Fluke solid body ? Then came the Super Fluke. I have one old package of Zoom Fluke w/o the slit.

You might check out the Yamamoto version of the flukes
They are more of a thicker body style of a fluke...I like them

Tff makes a few but they are for usually for specks and reds. Cant remember the name but you will know them whem you see em. Literally exactly what youre describing. Think they are called trout killers.

The narrow body is the ZOOM fluke..

The one with the slot and that people are talking about on here it seems is the super fluke.


There is also a fluke stick.

Correct. Fluke and Tiny Fluke are solid body’s. The Super Fluke, Super Fluke Jr and Magnum Super Fluke are all splIt body’s. https://zoombait.com/#
