Zara Spook: The Best Lure For Snook, Redfish, And Sea Trout

Take a look at all of these pictures and you'll notice a familiar piece of jewelry in the lips of each of these fish.  Every one of them fell victim to the proven Zara Spook, hands down the best topwater lure ever invented and probably the best artificial of all time.  If your tackle box doesn't have one of these, stop reading right now and go buy at least four or five.  I'll wait...

Great.  Now you're ready to hit the water like a man with the most badass topwater that $6 can buy.  Congratulations on becoming a better fisherman just like that. 

But in all seriousness, if you're fishing for the Big Three here around Southwest Florida, the Spook should be your go-to artificial when the water's surface is free of grass.  Snook, trout and reds can't resist it when they're hungry and the surface strikes are better than anything.  It also works like magic on jacks, ladyfish, and juvenile tarpon.  Even the miserable sailcats will hit it.  The Zara Spook has been around for almost 50 years and it will continue to dominate for a long time to come.
