Favorite walking bait

Recommended Posts

 Like most anglers I love topwaters.  My favorite type by far is a walking bait.   I've had a number of them over the years including some of high priced Japanese models.   I really like the Sammy from LC, but recently have returned to the original zara spook.  It has a great shape, walks the dog like it invented it (oh, it did) and doesn't cost a fortune.   the paint jobs may not be as exquisite as say a megabass but I think those elaborate paint jobs are more for catching fisherman than fish.

What cha tink?

Either a spook, or a bait I feel is overlooked which is the rapala skitter walk

I've been using the zara spook and a yamamoto tate pencil a lot this year.  I got the yamamoto because it was on sale 2 for $10 at DSG and has a really good look to it.  I have plenty of spooks in by tackle box and tried them the same day and had equal results.  Both great baits at a reasonable price.

My personal favorite is a Excalibur (now Heddon) spit n image.  I have a few that I let my buddy practice painting on that are sweet.

walks super easy, great sound, and a little different shape that a typical walker.

The only topwater bait I threw last year was a PopMax in python color.  Just started throwing as temps are in the 50s.

I have this one duo realis I found in a tree that works really well. It has a sort of half sphere on the lip that makes it walk easier apparently and I've caught tons of fish on it

Definitely the easiest to walk out of any I have used. If you get it just right you can get it to walk sub-surface as well.

I have a Skitter Walk I need to try.

The Spook has done really well for me, and I find the River2Sea Spittin' Image to walk very nicely as well.

Zara spooks are my favorite in calm clear water because of no rattles, I add split rings and triple grip hooks to help hold the fish. In rough water I  go to the gunfish, r2s rover, showerblow, or a super spook
