Do anyone throw the giant fluke on a creek for smallmouth? I have thrown it recently with some massive blowups on it. Just curious if anyone else was doing it

Do you fish yours as a topwater or subsurface? I have been throwing it weightless on top and I had to put a trailer on it to get fish to hook up.

A trailer on a fluke ? I use a 5/0 hook on a floating fluke and it sinks nice and slow . I just work it faster if I want to fish the top

Yes a trailer hook. The fluke I'm fishing is 8 inches long and the smallies here have trouble swallowing the whole thing since I've used the trailer I haven't missed a fish

Trailer as in a treble hook snelled to the main hook, or some other way?

I snell a small treble to the 8/0 main hook and hook the treble through the tail

Disregard my earlier input, y'all are talking a whole different level of massive baits than I was thinking of haha

I was extremely hesitant at first but I've caught smallmouth anywhere from 15 inches to 19 inches on that 8 inch fluke by zman! It's crazy how small a fish you can catch with it

Oh I believe you , I just don’t have any advice as I have never fished anything like that
