Zoom Swimmin Fluke Jr

Recommended Posts

So I tried one of these yesterday on 1/0 and 2/0 EWG... weightless texas rigged. 

On the retrieve every so often the Jr would rotate 360 degrees. I checked the hook and it was centered on the bait. Any idea why its rotating like that?

Try using a darter head, jig head, or weighted-belly swim bait hook. A little weight embedded to the hook with keep you trace on an even keel. Weightless causes that flaw when in motion. My tip: use a Roadrunner Pro Underspin. Most weighted bell swimbait hooks on the market are too big for a Swimming Fluke Jr. I do really well on the bluegill flash and baitfish colors

Swimmin' Fluke Jr. is one of my handful of go to smallmouth baits. Have introduced a couple of friends to creek fishing with it. Just rig it on a 1/16 or 1/8 head and straight retrieve.  They will come.

I like these but non-weighted.....the Fluke moves so well in the water, the fish love it.

Weighted and un weighted work great.I use the weighted in a little stronger current or really windy days.They both catch fish for sure.

I started making my own weighted hooks in order to meet my needs. When I get a chance I will post some pictures of what I made.
